More Love for Kachka Raises Interesting Question

New, 1 comment

If Portland's Russian population isn't dining at the Eastside hot spot, where are they going?

The New York Times travel section dedicates its recent Restaurant Report column to the pleasures of Kachka's Russian zakuski experience. The article gives the restaurant props for not going the kitschy-communist route and opting for a "homey-babushka" vibe instead. But it also points out how strange it is that "even though Russian is the third-most-spoken language in Oregon, the diners are mostly bearded, English-speaking hipster types." So where do all of Portland's Eastern Europeans and Russians go to get a taste of the motherland? If you know of a great spot, chime in on the comments below.
