There are a few things you can count on when you eat at Kachka: the room will be lively, a fishtank’s worth of vodka will get passed around, and you’ll be amazed at how good the Belarusian food is. The menu at this Southeast spot comes from the chef’s mother’s recipes and some of our favorites include the pan-fried dumplings, borsch, and Herring Under a Fur Coat, a very colorful seven-layer salad. They also have a wide variety of infused vodkas, which you can get in a cocktail or just take shots of with the table next to you. This is one of our favorite spots in Portland and if you’re looking for a place to start a night out with some interesting food and strong drinks, definitely come here.
