Food in Kyiv

On the sweet-tooth front, there is nothing more symbolic than Kyivsky tort, a nutty, layered sponge cake sold in circular cardboard cartons. Its main producer has a chain of immaculate shops, including this flagship on Kyiv's main drag. It's filled to the top shelf with all kinds of sweets, especially chocolate.

Another outlet is near the train station on vul Starovokzalna 21.
