After years of swirling rumors, we’re pleased to report that Pel’meni is finally opening in Seattle.
I’ve been waiting patiently after discovering these Russian dumplings in Juneau, then later enjoying them in Bellingham and also Madison, Wisconsin. (The Madison location is now closed). Don’t expect a menu. You’ll find just a choice of meat or potato dumplings, topped with sour cream, curry, hot sauce and cilantro.
Trust me: They’re delicious. The later the hour, the better. Pel’meni plans to stay open until 2 a.m.
Doors open this Friday at 5:00 p.m. You’ll find Pel’meni at 3516 Fremont Place North, across from 9 Million in Unmarked Bills.
