Its recipe is extremely simple - a sausage in a dough fried in oil, and has not changed from the very beginning. Perepichka - means "baking" from Ukrainian. Kiev perepichka is sold since 1981, its very first price was 22 kopeikas (the same as ice-cream). The facade is recognizable even after 35 years, as well as the big lines here.
