Taste of Ukraine Now NINE Years in St. Albert

November  marked  9 years  of business at our St. Albert location and we now have celebrated a total of 16 years since opening at our old Edmonton location. Thank you! to all of our loyal customers at this location.  It has been a sincere pleasure to serve you.  Please come by again soon.  We are proud to be recipients of the 2020 St. Albert Readers’ Choice Award of  Best Ethnic Restaurant!  And Andrew has been named Favourite Server 2020. We have the winning formula– great food, great atmosphere and great service.  Thank you for recognizing our effort by voting for us.

TASTE OF UKRAINE IS NOW SWEET 16 ! THAT’S A LOT OF PEROGIES SERVED!

After 7 great years at the original Edmonton location we had to close those doors and move to a new venue in St. Albert.   Nine years later, here we are– still serving our fine Ukrainian food in St. Albert!  If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to visit our St. Albert location, why not make our 16th anniversary a reason to come see us.  Drive a little further for a lot more taste.  Ми вас радо чекаємо!  We eagerly await your arrival.

Taste of Ukraine’s ‘Princess Petra & Prince Leo’– an update

Everybody’s favourite little munchkin, Princess ‘Petrusia’ as she has been dubbed here,  and who was frequently seen ( and heard!) visiting Taste of Ukraine with her little brother, Leo, prior to the Covid 19  restrictions –has sadly now left a huge void for all of us at the restaurant in ‘lockdown’ mode.  As  Natalka & Aaron’s little princess turned six, she was happily “helping” at the restaurant,  chatting up a storm in both Ukrainian and English, and definitely bringing much laughter and joy to us all.  Grade 1 was an easy transition for Petrusia– look out Neil M. Ross School!  With her little brother turning 3,  Petrusia is learning a new word — “share”, as she eases into the meaning of a sibling ‘prince’ who now shares her throne 🙂 Baba Orysia and Dido George have their hands full picking up after all of Petra’s “helping” and Leo’s creative re-arrangement.  However, nobody is complaining about the time devoted to these precious little bundles of energy — Многая Літа, Петрусю й Левку!  We love you both!  Can’t wait to have you back at Taste of Ukraine again.

Unfortunately, our little ones have not been visitors to Taste of Ukraine throughout the Covid-19 crisis.  We miss their little voices & chatter here but their safety is of ultimate importance.  Hopefully, the situation will be resolved soon.
