    traktir in west hollywood has very good pelmeni and vareniki, i just eat them there.
    to go - look at Jon's markets, the one at Fountain and la brea esp has very good piroshki to go.
    And at the royal something next door to traktir (crescent heights and santa monica) they make excellent food to go, tastes home made. check out their dumplings as well as other stuff.

        Have you been to BARIN?

        The potato vareniki was passable when I tried it last time, although it's listed as an appetizer.
