Say you want to have a special snack (you know that feeling - not exactly sure what you want, just something to make you happy right NOW!), it's usually not a fancy haute cuisine dish, that pops in your mind. Commonly it's some sort of good old street food.
"Street food" traditionally refers to a meal which is easy (and pleasant) to eat right on the street (while taking a walk for example).
Ok, we know, you know about hot dogs, burgers, shawarma and other tacos. But there's also national street food. Vietnam, Singapore, Czech Republic, Britain, Germany, France, Mexico - are definitely among the national street food titans.
Ukrainian national street food may not be as widespread as the ones mentioned above. But it's extremely delicious and totally worth exploring. One of the awesome street food points in Kyiv is the VarenykyNOW.UA restaurant near Lva Tolstogo square (Velyka Vasylkivska, 14).
