Not sure what to say about a big bowl of dumplings that people sit on and amidst to have their photo taken. Well, it's between the White Rotunda and Uspensky Cathedral so,,,, why not stop and take photo.

This type of places is for 'been here done that' people. I didn't know that Poltava dumplings are famous. When I see the monument I know they are.

If for no other reason than to be photographed with dumplings! This monument lies amidst other beautiful sights, and is worth the short walk.

Halushki/Galushki dumplings are unique to Poltava. This place is at the Southern end of October / Zhovtneva Street, beyond the church. It is traditional that you must be photographed here - as the only proof that you visited Poltava !
