We've never experienced traditional Doukhobour food before, but we certainly enjoyed it. We had the borscht which was cabbage based, not beet as I've had before. Very delicious. Then we had Pyrahi, which was shaped into a heart for Valentines Day. I chose the beet filling, yum! We finished off having the cinnamon buns with our coffee.

Excellent doukhobor Russian food. Love the pyrahi especially the cottage cheese ones and the bean. Everything is made from scratch which takes extra time but worth the wait. No deep fried options which I consider a plus. Also their borscht is best you will find in town.

We ordered the borsch and piroshki with pumpkin filling. This is our first experience with Doukhobour foods. It was interesting but personally, plain in flavor. Although I can't compare our meal to any other Doukhobour... More

This Russian specialty spot is obviously a local and tourist favorite for their Russian-Ukrainian dishes as they offered a wide selection of special dishes. Olga our server was very patient and walked us through the various items on offer. I finally opted for the lunch special which was two large stuffed boiled dumplings and a good sized bowl of borscht... More

Beki and her team make THE BEST AUTHENTIC Russian Doukhobour food anywhere! Not only do I stop in to The Borscht Bowl every time I go to Grand Forks, friends and family from the area have shipped the amazing food to me in Vancouver! I highly recommend that you visit The Borscht Bowl and enjoy a taste of heaven.
