Piroshkis are kind of like hot pockets, except they’re usually Russian, and are hopefully homemade and haven’t just come out of a microwave. Know that this Russian stand is not a secret - a massive line starts to form just before lunchtime, so prepare to wait. Food-wise, there have savory pastries with fillings like smoked salmon pate or beef and cheese. But don’t overlook the sweet ones filled with chocolate and hazelnuts.
