Kiev is a wonderful city boasting incredible architecture and sensational food and drink that must not be missed. For breakfast, lunch, dinner and a nightcap, and everything in between, hiring a local is the only way to fully experience everything this fantastic city has to offer in terms of cuisine. From borscht to varenyky, from vodka to horilka, with a local, the pressure is off, and all you have to focus on is enjoying the food and drink in front of you.
One of the most important things about visiting Kiev is making sure you get a taste of the traditional food and drink that the country has to offer. Nowhere is this more important than in Ukraine, where their own post-Soviet identity is truly beginning to shine through, no more so than in the cuisine that it offers its grateful visitors. Food & Drinks Experience in localexperience.co is your chance to experience proper Ukrainian food. By hiring a local, you’ll have unprecedented access to all the hidden gems of Kiev, rather than succumbing to the tacky, expensive tourist traps or facing the agony of choice over where to eat.
With a local, you can devour course after course at the best (and most generous) buffet restaurants in town; you can savor locally brewed beers or absurdly cheap vodka alongside some of the most hospitable people in the world; and if you’re lucky, you’ll even be taken to a “babushka”, who’ll prepare the most delicious home-cooked food you’ll ever eat.
Did you know that the Ukrainians have some eccentric ways of making alcohol? Alongside locally brewed beer and wine, you’ve simply got to try horilka, a grain-based spirit, and nalivka, a berry-based wine. There are dozens of pubs and wine bars in Kiev to choose from, some of which distill their beverages on the premises, and only a local knows where the sweet spots are.
