Inexpensive and delicious
There is something so comforting about entering a store and your nose suddenly turns into something you only see dogs do. Within their noses, they have receptor cells that grab hold of the odor and transmit the information along to their brains. They have an increased sensitivity to the very existence of a substance. That is how I felt coming upon Piroshki on Madison. I'm instantly turned on, and feel a sense of nostalgia wash over me like going to grandmas house and smelling fresh baked awesomeness.
This little Russian bakery is a hidden gem nestled near the Swedish Hospital and there is already a line starting to form at 11:30am. It is a small walk thru establishment with counter cases occu- PIED (get it lol) with these sweet and savory pockets of love. All with that shiny slightly egg washed exteriors and formations of cute festive flowers or braids from the scraps.
Around $5.50 a pop and they offer coffee, soft drinks, water. A very in and out process. Very few seats, like maybe 6. I find the 3 seater table in the back and post up. Good selection of condiments by me. Dijon is my choice. I almost devour my corned beef, mushroom, and cheese. Plenty of filling, very tasty. Best lunch for under $10! Highly recommend.
