You can never have enough dumplings in your life, but at Hugo’s, you can try. Each order comes with approximately a million (really more like 25) tiny, delicious pelmeni, which are Russian dumplings similar to pierogi. There are a few different fillings to choose from, and the dumplings are either boiled (the traditional preparation), sauteed, or fried. Their small size means you can eat a lot before turning into a giant human dumpling, and we recommend mixing and matching the flavors, but definitely getting some of the lamb variety. It’s a counter service operation, perfect for grabbing a quick lunch or dinner.
