Some love for Streecha Ukrainian Kitchen

Fork in the Road pays a visit to Streecha Ukrainian Kitchen, the basement home of hearty and inexpensive Eastern European fare at 33 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square.

Here's part of Kevin Kessler's article:

Open Friday through Sunday from roughly 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., the basement is a haven for local Ukrainian expats and those New Yorkers looking for a taste of authentic Ukrainian fare.

Cheap, fresh, and fast, Streecha serves a small menu heavy on flavor that barely touches your billfold. The standards are excellent. The beet borscht soup ($2) is a lighter version than normally found, with added lentil beans for texture (a nice touch). The stuffed cabbage ($4) is firm and still tender; the boiled kielbasa comes from East Village Meat Market, located just down the street.

The timeless basement cafe is a fundraising arm of the St George Ukrainian Catholic Church just up East Seventh Street.

Went today for the first time and absolutely loved it. The food was made with love, tasty and the atmosphere is casual and small town friendly. Great prices too.
