While travelling through the area we searched Trip Adivor to find a good place to eat. We almost bit on the "bar & grill" offering in the area but decided that Inna's sounded...well, interesting.
Inna's is in a store front on the main drag in Wenatchee. We visited on a Thurday night about 8pm and it was not busy. Infact there were 3 other tables in use when we arrived. The iinterior is spartan and dated...or is it Eastern European, I am not sure. Everything is clean and orderly and the man who helped us was very pleasant and chatty. We enjoyed him. He was quick to share what was goin on around the restaurant and took great pleasure in the fact that I was wearing shorts in the middle of November. Come, on...we were driving all day!
Anyway they pride themselves on 4 cuisines. Ukrainian, Polish, Italian and Greek. The menu is large as is the selection of local and European beers and wines. The problem with a large Ukrainian menu for us wwas that we had no idea what most of it was! One hting that immmediately caught my wife's eye was the Verenke. This is a Polish pasta dish. My wife was excited and ordered it. I ordered another pasta dish that I cannot remember the name of. I was goin to go for the spaghetti but remembered I had bagged the "bar & grill" for something interesitng so here I went.
I sipped my Russian porter (much of Inna's fare is procured from a Ukrainian market in Seattle and the recipes created, by hand, on the property) and we noshed on really terrific little rolls and chatted with our waiter. By now the other tables had cleared so it was just us. After a bit Inna came out and my wife shared her love of Verneke and the conversation really started to roll.
The food was simple and good. My pasta dish was huge but a mystery. Inna provided sour cream and then poured vinegar over it in a dipping cup. I was unsure but it was AMAZING! The pasta surrounded a core of chicken which sounds kind of boring but it was good!. Adding the vinegar/sour cream was scrumptious.
My wife was taken with the Vereneke and she and Inna discussed the differences in preperation. My wife is a vegetarian and the menu does have a few veggie options but not many. A local I spoke with said it gets really busy sometimes and is a local favorite.
I was so pleased that we were alone and could spend so much time with Inna...she even gifted us a Ukrainian chocolate as we left.
