If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a traditional Ukrainian meal, Uman’s Shinok Na Okolutsi is an excellent choice. You’ll be hard pressed to find another restaurant so dedicated to preserving the unique culinary traditions of Ukraine. 


Since ancient times, visitors have traveled from all over Ukraine to try Shinok’s borscht with lard (vegetable soup), vareniki (stuffed dumpling), and custom-brewed beverages. Some say Shinok’s traditional food is the best in the country! Restaurant patrons may also try pastries, stuffed aubergines, porridge, and veal brains. Shinok’s head cook will prepare any dish on request, so don’t be shy if you’d like to try something not listed on the menu.


Uman’s Shinok is situated on a lovely parcel of land surrounded by beautiful forests and sprawling fields. Patrons are often treated to Ukrainian folk music as they savor their meals in the restaurant’s cozy dining area.


Once you’ve finished eating, you can visit one of Uman’s multiple entertainment venues, including billiards, bowling, saunas, and more. What better way to enjoy a nice evening in Ukraine than to enjoy a traditional meal followed by a night of fun?
