We are two friends sharing the same passion for food. One of us is a gastro blogger, another works in marketing for different restaurant projects. We united together to become your local FoodMates in Kyiv who, through an extensive background of traveling, know the pain of getting into a tourist trap. It is our inspiration and pleasure to reveal the best tastes Kyiv has to offer. Our raison d’être is – we love food, we love our culture, and we love to share. During our adventure we will dig into the roots of our culinary traditions, tell you honest stories and reveal our favorite hidden secrets. We offer group and private food tours, both which include a culinary master class. Life is too short to waste it on diets.
