The pride of the Chef of Samogon Bar is tasty T-Bone steak served with pickled peppers, roasted garlic and a little tangy homemade adzhika sauce. It perfectly complements the taste and reveals juicy meat. The portion costs UAH 359. "Gold menu" dishes are cooked exclusively of the local Ukrainian products. Restaurant actively cooperates with small farmers who supply fresh meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, dairy products and fresh herbs. In the main menu you will find a wide variety of goodies. There are about 50 positions over there.
Bar card includes a lot of types of brandy. “Vishnevka", "Smorodinovka" and "Malinovka” are especially popular when complimented with nutmeg and vanilla. These sugary drinks will be a wonderful aperitif (their strength is only 18-20 degrees, so you can safely try a few brandy types). If you prefer stronger drinks, we advise to look at the liqueurs (classical "Medovukha", "Khrenovukha", "Spotykach" and "Kedrovka" of 26, 28 and 30 degrees). The menu also features traditional alkie and absinthe (55-65 degrees). The cost of these drinks is USD 30 per 50 ml
