I’ll be honest, after 8 years of Capitol Hill living I’m pretty much done with on-Broadway dining. There are a few exceptions though. One is Galerias on the north end. Another is Piroshki on Broadway.
Located across from Dick’s burgers, Piroshki on Broadway is great for a quick snack. They make omelettes for breakfast and pirogies for lunch, but their bread & butter (actually bread & filling of your choice) is the piroshkies. Their spelling however is inconsistent. If you’ll notice, the sign is “PIROSHKY”, but the menu and interior signage has “PIROSHKI”. You make the call.
The piroshki I always crave is the Spinach, Mushroom and Cheese. They are mixed together in garlic which provides a nice counterbalance to the slightly-sweet bun.
If you are one of those anti-mushroom types, the Smoked Turkey and Cheese is also pretty tasty. Russian fast food at its finest!
UPDATE (May, 2009): Piroshki on Broadway has lost their space due to construction of the Capitol Hill light rail station. There is a rumor that the owner still serves russian food at Swedish on First Hill.
