Russian food is my favorite food. The food is so homey, it’s the only food that truly fills me up to the point my stomach stretches!

I specifically like this restaurant in Carmichael, Sacramento because the food is the best in my opinion compared to even some places in Los Angeles. I have been going to the restaurant for years and I would even go by myself a lot.

As I visited Sacramento recently, I went with my brother, Cal, and my two friends Ahsan, and Scott.

So when I mention that Russian food is my favorite type of food, people tend to ask, “What is Russian food?”

Well here it is… Here are some of my favorite dishes.

Borsch Traditional Ukrainian borsch made with beets, cabbage, and house vegetables, carrots, potatoes topped with sour cream. You can add beef for extra amount but I love how they prep this without it. Some places will just add it.

There is also cheese in here. It comes very hot and is very filling!

Russian food is very filling. It always brings me back to my familiar senses about my culture and makes me love where I came from. It’s always fun to try new food and this is a must try. Check out the full menu!

Especially relevant, I love how they have authentic Ukranian or Russians working there. As a result, it makes for a more genuine experience.

Have you ever had Russian food? Did you like it or no? I know that the Borscht is a yes or no for people since it mainly consists of beets.

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Russian food is delicious! Menu items from neighboring countries like Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia are excellent as well. The Borscht is fantastic.
