Café Plov—aptly named after the dish— is run by Yurii and Larysa, a displaced couple from Kyiv in Uzhgorod, Western Ukraine. They opened the place only a few months back and it has since become a popular hangout place for local residents.
“We love to have guests,” Larysa explains. “Yurii gets to cook his special plov every time we invite someone over. This is our favourite family recipe. It’s good mood food!
