If there is a meal that everyone knows from the Ukraine, it’s chicken Kiev. The thing is, it’s actually not at all from the Ukraine, but rather from Russia. It’s like a cordon bleu, but with butter instead of cheese and ham. And it’s deep-fried. Could it be worse for you? Probably not. But as with most things, fat = tastiness.
I had never had one before, and Travis and I agreed that we just couldn’t leave Kiev without having one. Hence the really, really bad picture above.
We were surprised though to find just how many people ordered the dish at the cafeteria-style restaurant we were at. Nothing like Singapore noodles in Singapore (which I’ve never managed to find in Singapore).
