I Am A Midnight Russian Dumpling Slinger

August 12, 2013

In Juneau, Pelmeni is a household word. It is both the name of a restaurant, and the small Russian dumpling served there.

With one of the simplest menus possible (meat or potato pelmeni only), Pelmeni packs in Juneauites day and night – especially late.

Nicholas Haws is one of the crew of locals that tends the pelmeni pots.
