When we walked into Albina, we were greeted by our friendly host who advised us to sit anywhere we wanted as the place was literally empty. It being a Tuesday night, I think he was glad that someone actually showed up. The entire restaurant had a very folkloric feel to it; ethnic place mats on the table, flowery plates and lots of er... interesting Ukrainian art work hanging on the walls. In the back was a large flat-screen TV playing music videos on what looked like Russia's answer to MTV. I've never been to Ukraine before, but this is what I imagine all restaurants would look like.
Having no more room for desserts, we rolled ourselves back to Canning Town Station with doggie bags in our purses. I didn't actually eat the other pancake, as one very heavy Ukrainian meal in one week, is more than enough.
