I never thought I’d be into Russian food, but after eating at Europa I can say for sure that I was incorrect. My friends and I enjoy coming to Europa for a drink now and again, but most recently I was hungry so I decided to try some food.
I ordered the stuffed grape leaves and the borscht. While I only meant to have a bite or two of each, I couldn’t help myself: I ate the whole thing! Our waitress, Sue, was a delight and helped me choose these two delicious dishes. Being middle eastern I am very picky about my grape leaves, but these stood up to any I’ve had. They were seasoned wonderfully! Even as someone who loves beets, I was skeptical about borscht; again, I was wrong. The flavor is simple and clean, and oh so satisfying, especially when topped with some cold sour cream. As I’m typing this I am beginning to crave it actually.
Besides the food, my favorite part of Europa is the ice room. They provide a variety of beautiful fur coats for you to enjoy along with some ice cold vodka in the negative temperatures of the room. As someone who has always dreamed of going to Russia, this Siberian experience is a close second to the real thing!
Overall, every time I’ve been to Europa I’ve more than enjoyed my experience. I don’t give many 5 star reviews, but this restaurant is a must try. I’ll be back very soon!
