Pelmeni--a Latvian staple

Well, I've heard of Pelmeni ever since I arrived here and what I heard didn't make me excited to ever try eating it. But then we started hearing from the Americans who live here that it's really good. So, we bought a package of it in the freezer section and tried it.

It turns out it's just filled pasta, somewhat like ravioli without the sauce. You can boil them or fry them. We opted to boil ours. They aren't half bad. And, as one of the young elders said, if you put sour cream and Texicana on anything, it tastes good. That's how we ate them and they did taste good.
