Pierogies duh! Get the mixed plate and sample all the specials. Borsch pretty darn delish too
The pierogies are magical. And don't be afraid to try to something new - the beet and horseradish salad was a pleasant surprise.
Periogis! The Ukrainian cuisine is something new that we all should try. They have conventional items like sandwiches and burgers, but go for meat plates and periogies
Great service and super tasty Ukrainian specials
Some of the best borsch soup you can get. The food here is really good and friendly staff
Banana Creme Pie was absolutely fantastic.
The #1 takeout is the best value, but everything here is good.
Beef stroganoff and borscht. Boom. Done.
Amazing home cooked real food with an authentic European touch. It's a small space so be willing to wait and go hungry!
sweet potato pierogis!
Classic east village spot, this Ukrainian diner is clean, inexpensive, and tasty. I like the chili, but definitely try the pierogies if it's your first time
The Peirogis are a must. Open 24 hours!!
Pierogi heaven. This 24/7 spot is a must for anyone out in the wee hours. The schnitzel is a great fried plate for all those savory cravings
The New York original. All the Polish goodies are great, but really just order the pierogi, steamed or fried, and go to town with applesauce, sour cream and the like. Amazing, simply.
pierogies!! they're delicious and relatively inexpensive here. it's a can't miss east village spot
Pierogies seem like the basic choice, but are totally worth it. Staff here is awesome. Good late night spot.
The stuffed cabbage took the spot light on my deluxe meat plate for sure!!
Decent soups in nyc :)
Ukrainian Meatballs - tender pork & beef meatballs served with rich mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes & beet horseradish salad
The most civilized opening hours you could want.
Their pancakes are awesome! Forgo the sausage and get their delicious thick cut bacon instead.
The only restaurant where can order anything (from beef stroganoff to pancakes) at anytime (from early 4am breakfast to late 11pm supper). real institution in the village!
Pierogis are great and the beef stroganoff is amazing!
Best pierogi! But no vodka
Loved the dumplings and borsht/beetroot soup
Open late, cool spot
Pierogies, mmm & 24 hours.
Get the kielbasa!
Great brunch place with awesome pierogies.
A great diner with Ukrainian favorites. The beef stroganoff and meat plate are worth trying.
The pierogies were wonderful! A lovely, bustling place.
Bigos is great.
Try the kielbasa hero with a bowl of soup!
Vegetable soup was served lukewarm and bland aside from dill freshness. The small size was large enough for one, $7. Goats cheese and arugula pierogi & sauerkraut with mushrooms best. Latke reheated
Pierogies - I loved the goat cheese & arugula, and the sweet potato. And good God that peanut butter pie...
Classic NYC spot - open late with great pierogies and potato pancakes. The beef stroganoff was excellent as well!
The pierogi and borscht are great, but try the kasha also
No borscht can touch this! Seriously the best one. I understand there are different kinds but once you taste this you wonder why.
Can't go wrong with huge plate of pierogis!
Avoid the Wednesday Special: Chicken Paprikash. It's bland and sorely missing the key ingredient, paprika.
As a midwestern boy hailing from the great state of Perogie (Ohio), I was disappointed in Veselka's food.
24 hours of heaven. Get the meat plate!
Quintessential late night East Village experience. Matzo Ball soup and all-day breakfast specials, Arugula & Goat Cheese Perogies are great (but on the smaller side).
Has a great variety of food
These short rib pierogies are fire.
Awful burgers, but good borscht and perogies. Stick to the Ukrainian menu and expect basic Ukrainian dishes (lots of white bread, cabbage, sausage, potatoes, and pancakes).
