The best street food locations in Kyiv


This selection begins with Yaroslava, which is rightfully considered one of the culinary symbols of Kyiv. This place is 75 years old, but it hasn't lost its relevance at all. At Yaroslavа you can taste the most delicious pies in the capital!


"Kyivska Perepichka" is another popular street food restaurant that has been operating in the capital for over 40 years. Probably every Kyivite has heard the word “perepichka”, but only a few know its meaning. As restaurateur Misha Katsurin explains, perepichka is a flatbread made from sour dough. At Kyivska Perepichka, these flatbreads are served with sausages, a so-called Ukrainian authentic alternative to hot dogs.


To visit the next location, you need to move to Lisova Street, one of the largest second-hand stores in the capital. A true legend of Kyiv street food, Iraqi chef Hassan, who cooks falafel in a loaf, works here. For only 190 UAH you will get the world's most powerful sandwich weighing over a kilogram! Unfortunately, Hassan's shop was recently destroyed, so he opened a new location at the Platforma art factory.


Don't miss the Sofra chain of restaurants, which serves the best Crimean Tatar pasties. Here you will be able to feel the true taste of the Ukrainian Crimea and get to know this freedom-loving people better.
