At first collecting and supplying East European authentic items was just a hobby for Mikhail Frumkin, until it turned into business. As an immigrant from Minsk (Belarus), Frumkin has always known that East European culture is truly unique and its cuisine is not just delicious, but also different in a way that makes your soul warm. A Taste of Europe opened its doors in 2002 in Arlington, Texas and that’s how our story began. Since then we’ve been trying to live up to this name as a local restaurant with an abundance of healthy, characterful dishes that are inspired by East European cuisine.
A Taste of Europe thoughtfully reimagines East European rich culinary history through a wide variety of comforting, eclectic dishes. Our menu spotlights anything from Classic Borscht and Hungarian goulash, Beef stroganoff and German schnitzel to Ukrainian pirogues and Chicken Kiev and much more. The restaurant’s design evokes the warmth and casual integrity of the East European home. You can also dive in browsing among the shelves through authentic merchandise from Poland, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Latvia, the Czech Republic, and Russia that will make you truly experience another place and time.
Almost twenty years later A Taste of Europe has carried on the traditions of its early days. A place of occasion. A touchstone for a neighborhood. A Taste of Europe is just that – a compilation of lively dining experiences, exceptional service and quality East European cuisine that sets the stage for genuine conversation over a tasty meal.
