Anthony Bourdain-featured Seattle bakery Piroshky Piroshky is coming to the Bay Area
Piroshky Piroshky, a popular Russian bakery in Seattle that was once featured on Anthony Bourdain’s show “No Reservations,” is visiting the Bay Area this month. Known for its piroshki — Russian hand pies — the bakery is celebrating its 30th year in business by touring the country.
Bay Area customers can preorder all sorts of treats for pickup, from smoked salmon pâté piroshki and jalapeño-and-cheddar sausage rolls to cinnamon-cardamom braids and rhubarb piroshki. Monthly specials, including a bacon cheeseburger piroshky and a lemon twist dessert, are also available.
“I crave stuff like this,” Bourdain said in the 2007 episode featuring Piroshky Piroshky. “If these guys were down the street from me, I would go on a bender — like I’d eat this every day for two months.” Piroshky Piroshky, which was founded at Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1992, is making three Northern California stops between Jan. 17 and Jan. 20: one in South San Francisco, one in Redwood City and one in Carmichael. Customers must place their orders (with a $50 minimum) in advance and then pick them up at the designated date and time.
For South San Francisco, orders must be placed by Jan. 16 at 2 p.m. and picked up at the South San Francisco Elks Lodge (920 Stonegate Drive, South San Francisco) on Jan. 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. For more details on how to order, see here.
