We have a good friend named Bill Grella who has been to over 800+ restaurans and as of this writing (November 2023), he's in Boise, ID right now visting all these TripleD places. Keep a google out for him as he will probably write about this place as it's nestled in the heart of Boise, Alyonka Russian Cuisine stands as a beacon of comfort, transporting diners to a world of Slavic charm and flavors. It's not just a restaurant; it's a culinary adventure, and it caught the eye of none other than Guy Fieri, taking it from local gem to a stop on the "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" roadmap.
Step into Alyonka, and you step into a story that begins in the old-world traditions of Russia and ends on a high note in Flavortown. The anticipation builds as you're greeted by the aromas of rich borscht and buttery piroshki, a preview of the happiness your taste buds are about to experience. It’s a place where older men and women share tales over teacups and families come together for a feast that feels like home.
When Guy Fieri swung by with his famous red Camaro, he wasn't just visiting another eatery; he was entering a family’s heart and soul poured into each dish. Alyonka's menu is a tapestry of Russian cuisine, woven with the threads of generational recipes and served with a side of mom-and-pop hospitality. From savory blinis to hearty pelmeni, each dish is a tribute to the culinary richness of Russia.
