Dinner at Russian Banya!!


As I promise, some suggestions of food. The cuisine is a mix of Nordic and Middle Eastern. It is indeed different and delicious!

Stuffed Eggplant Rolls with savory cheese and walnut served with Khrenovina, a traditional Siberian sauce, made of tomatoes, garlic and horseradish. VERY good.

Cheburek crispy beef filled pastry. YUM!

Uzbek style Samsa lamb filled- I don't eat lamb and took the meat out. It was good, regardless!

Potato varenyky-Very soft dumplings that just melt in your mouth!

Borscht- soup with beet and meat

Pelmeni (dumplings/ravioli),
Dolmas (Armenian/Georgian/Greek rice and meat wrapped in grape leaves)

Cheese Pierogi- excellent

Plus the Russian staples: caviar, smoked meats etc


 Pachlava, almond Baklava- Think of a slightly different dough than mille feuille filled with marzipan. Uber yum! Russian Honey Cake- very good too.

Can't waaaait!! Oh portions are big, I encourage you to share around!




Hello Awesome people!!

I finally decided where to go (and hope you like it!)

We went to Russian Banya last year and the food is excellent, from appetizers to desserts. It seems their website is compromised but I will post the menu or some suggestions of dishes asap!

It is BYOB and they ask a minimum spending of $15 per person. They take credit cards but not Amex.

Hope to see you there!!

Hugs to all

    Nice to meet everyone. Sorry I didn't get to engage in conversation with the "girl's side" of the table. I'll post pictures. Next time I'll try to remember to take more pictures of people.

    This was the location of the first Meetup that we went to... all I can say is that the food was lacklustre at best and we were basically served EVERYTHING in 30 mins, then kicked out after another 30 mins. This is a Russian Zone, and if you're not using the Banya, eat (quickly) and get out! Hope your experience is better!

      That was not my experience at all, Anthony. The owners couldn't be more graceful and the food was amazing. I went there twice, one with Maria and one with the group and we stayed there as much as we wanted to. Absolutely one of my favorite ethnic restaurants in Dallas.
