Vegetable Borscht

Veselka ships its legendary vegetable borscht nationwide on Goldbelly! Veselka’s borscht is a classic beet soup with vegetables.

Opened in 1954 by Ukrainian refugees Wolodymyr and Olha Darmochwal, Veselka, which means “rainbow,” is one of New York’s best 24/7 diners, serving Old World comfort food like pierogi, borscht, and goulash.

Yo. Veselka is crazy good. Their matzoh ball soup is light, and simple and clean tasting. It’s not cheap. Great matzoh balls. Never had em’ in my life before. And the vereneky was superb as well. Ukrainian food is really great, and I really enjoyed this experience.

Betty T. - West Chester, PA
Everything! This included ... . Receiving regular updates on shipping & delivery estimate. . Package arrived early in day expected. . There was a large "PERISHABLE CONTENTS" label on the shipping box. . The Pierogies were well packed in a compact, thick insulated bag, with multiple ice packs around the food. While the ice had mostly melted down (100-degree day), the 3 individual trays of Pierogies were still cold.
