Recently I had the wonderful Ukrainian dessert "chroosteh" (sp), fried sugared dough in the shape of pigs' ears. Does anyone know if this specialty might be found somewhere in Brighton Beach?
Are they similar to Lithuanian Chruscik? (Sounds similar.) Those are available lots of places in the NYC area -- most Polish stores will carry them and even some local places do -- they have pretty good distribution. (Key Food on Atlantic in Brooklyn Heights has had them in the past.)
