The restaurants in Ukraine are remarkably diverse. In addition to Ukrainian cuisine with its traditional borscht and Chicken Kyiv (often referred to as Chicken Kiev), there are plenty of others from Israeli and Crimean Tatar to Georgian and Mediterranean that allow everyone to make the best choice.
