RUSSIAN TEA TIME REST. 77 E Adams St., Chicago, IL 60603, (312) 360-0000, russianteatime.com
Q-Tips say: Yes, go and enjoy, we did. Our meal started with a great cocktail and the have some of the most delicious complimentary dark bread/with butter and a complimentary outstanding Cole Slaw type of salad which has a delicious light dressing – it was awesome. We ordered the delicious homemade cup of soup. Mrs. Q had the Mushroom Barley Soup, which is different from the Polish style Mushroom Barley but delicious and fully vegetarian. Mr. Q. had the Ukrainian Borscht world classic! – sweet and sour soup of beets, cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes and tomatoes. served hot with sour cream. Mrs. Q enjoyed the genuine Russian Dumplings Pelmeni. Making first-class Pelmeni, I understand, takes a truly special skill! the dough is rolled very thin and hand swaddled – they offer wonderful dumplings of seasoned ground beef and onions, boiled and topped with melted butter. served with touch of carrot salad, sour cream and yogurt sauce. So yummy! She should have order the larger portion. Mr. Q had the Wild Game Sausages kielbasa along with wild venison and wild buffalo sausages are broiled, served over mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach, sauteed shiitake mushrooms and carrot salad. They offer Vodka Flights which we passed on – but I am sure they are wonderful. The Q’s have been to the Russian Tea Time Restaurant before with friends several times and have never been disappointed.
