Borsch, Vodka & Tears

Bar in South Yarra, Prahran & Windsor

A Chapel St classic and nod to the area's Eastern European influences. With up to 200 vodkas available, you can try drops like clear, oak-matured, fruit-infused and traditional nalewka kresowa (made according to old Russian and Polish recipes). Staff are knowledgeable and the menu includes borscht and blintzes good enough to make your Polish grandpa weep. Na zdrowie! (Cheers!)

Tip: visit for eggs on sourdough with meatballs, saganaki and bacon in the morning.
