Russian pancakes “syrniki” is a fried curd cheese pancakes, but also can be made with ricotta cheese. Further so typical in Russia, usually the pancakes are eaten in the morning as breakfast. Moreover it has become popular in the eastern of Europe by its delicious flavor.

Mainly pancakes are made with milk, flour, eggs and sugar. On the other hand, the russian syrniki do not include milk but whether ricotta or curd cheese. Also the texture is thicker than the normal pancakes, besides very creamy, consequently their shaped is like a small circle.

In fact, this syrniki that I ate, it was made with ricotta cheese. As a result, the pancakes were delicious, creamy and soft served with sour cream and the sweet caramel sauce and blueberries, certainly very tasty.



Another russian dish that I tried in the restaurant dreamers. It was draniki what means potato pancake which consist in grated potatoes, mixed with flour, eggs, garlic and onion. Although it is not sweet, rather salty.

However, in this place they made the draniki totally different. Indeed, the ingredients are not mixed together as pancakes then they are cooked separately. Besides served with bacon, sour cream and russian sauerkraut.

As as result, I loved it. Surely a great dish
