Borsch, Vodka and Tears
But I’ll admit that I love every visit to this eclectic Prahran restaurant.
Close your eyes and you could be in Warsaw, Moscow, Budapest or Prague.
While there’s great food on offer here, BVT is mostly about vodka and the number and range they offer is unparalleled in Australia.
With over a hundred different flavours of brands and infusions, (and combinations thereof), as long as you like vodka, you’ll find something here to both tempt and intrigue you.
The dinner menu at BV & T is a delicious mix of traditional Eastern European favourites, influenced predominantly by Polish, Russian and Hungarian cuisine.
Each delivers the opportunity to enjoy meals and flavour combinations that have been prepared and enjoyed by Europeans for centuries.
The come in entree and main sizes and with so many choices available, they are perfect to share, nibble and enjoy.
There’s also a breakfast and lunchtime menu, which means that Borsch, Vodka and Tears is a great place to stop, imbibe and feast, anytime.
The crowd is a mixture of Chapel St locals, arty eastern suburbs types, nightclubbers and very often, first-generation Australians and their parents who come to enjoy home-cooked meals from the old country.
People watching is an absolute must and B,V & T oozes atmosphere.
If you can, try and visit on the nights when traditional music is part of the experience.
A truly unique Melbourne spot….Vivat Na zdrowie!!
