Borsch Vodka & Tears


This Vodka bar/cafe/restaurant at 173 Chapel St, Prahran has about 90 different varieties of infused and straight vodkas which are served ice cold in small shot glasses. Priced from $6 to about $9.
Their "Modern Polish Cuisine" is a mixture of Polish, Russian and Hungarian dishes but who cares - they are very good.
Moderately priced entree's may be served as mains
Bigos - pardon the spelling a cabbage and smoked meat entree
Gnochi with porchini mushrooms really fine and soft I haven't had betterPork loin with cabbage and mashed potato - super the dish made specially tasty by the addition of sweet pickled Polish style cucumber We also enjoyed the pirogi though I found them a little bland
Very busy very noisy specially on Wednesday nights when there are a couple of fellows belting out a variety of old favourites on a guitar and violin

Comments A fun place if you can stand the racket with very good food and lots of vodka too!
Score: 14.75/20

I love to visit this place in winter - the pierogi are fantastic!

It is definitely a winter menu - I have no idea if they ever change it for summer but, since it was december when we went there, I guess not!

I love to go there on Wednesday night as on Wednesday night people play a variety of old favorites on a guitar and violin. In winter vodka is better known as a divine drink than a fire-starter.Borsch, Vodka & Tears is a fitting place for some modern vodka worship.There are more than 100 different vodkas, and all of them possess their own unique twist.Wine and absinthe are available, along with some Polish and Czech beers.The place itself strikes a balance between bar and restaurant.The ornate mirrors, candles and soft lighting give the place a warm feel.I like to enjoy my drink with Cuban cigars cigars.As my favorite cigars are not easily available in the local market, so I buy them online.Thanks for
sharing.
