The Halushky of Poltava

On Monday Laura and I took the train to Poltava so Laura could do some interviews for her research.  Between meetings we saw the sites which included a monument to a dish attributed to being created in Poltava called Halushky.  They are essentially meat filled dumplings with some sour cream on the side.

Here's the monument which is a popular spot to get your photo taken sitting in the spoon...too bad it was raining on Monday.

For lunch Laura ordered the halushky...

...while I had another type of dumpling dish called Varenyky which is filled with chicken.  Plus, don't forget the sour cream. Both dishes were excellent.

And when we hit one of the local gift shops I couldn't pass up a halushky magnet for $2.50.
