El Kozako

This is a Ukrainian blog right? So I had to do something Ukrainian over there. Options were, unsurprisingly, a bit limited. But we did we did find a restaurant in Recoleta that fit the bill just fine. It was called "El Kozako," served slavic food, had slavic decor (check out the picture, it's an icon and a picture of a Ukrainian hetman holding a bulova; they also had lots of Samovars), and the waiters were immigrants from the FSU. Our waiter was a Russian guy who was from outside of Almaty. He said a fair amount of former Soviet types moved to Argentina back in the 90s when the Peso was pegged to the dollar.
