If you want to taste some traditional food in Minsk, this place would be a good choice. Dish of vareniki with potatoe/onion is very delicious (probably the best one I've ever tasted in my whole life).

Many thanks indeed. Glad to know you like our version of Belarusian cuisine which some people claim to be too simple. But we belive in its decent , if humble, dignity. Have a good stay in Belarus and come back one nice day.
