Ukrainian Food in London
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.
