Hidden Gem: DeYummy

Sheffield’s first full-service Ukrainian restaurant opened at the bottom of The Moor in March, boasting a menu packed full of authentic, home-cooked Ukrainian cuisine.

Since opening, the restaurant has introduced Sheffield residents to the joy of Ukrainian food as well as helping our burgeoning Ukrainian community enjoy a slice of home.

Co-owner Angelina, who moved to the UK just over a year ago and now runs the restaurant with her mum who takes care of the cooking duties, told Exposed: “Ukrainian cuisine is very versatile, and we want to show why we love it so much by bringing you a piece of Ukraine on a plate.
“We are very proud to present a place where we speak the language of Ukraine through taste and our souls.”

Authentic Ukrainian cuisine

On the menu, you’ll find a whole host of authentic, home-cooked food, as well as traditional Lyiv coffee imported from Ukraine. Dishes include steamed cabbage rolls called Golubtsi, Ukrainian dumplings called Varenyky and, of course, Chicken Kyiv, which is definitely not what you’ll remember from the frozen, supermarket version of your childhood!

Ukrainian restaurant

Angelina, who is still completing her university studies while running the restaurant, moved to the UK a little over a year ago. She told Exposed: “My hometown got destroyed in March 2022, just a few weeks after the war started. My flat was just seven miles away from occupied territory, so I lost everything.
“As well as introducing Ukrainian food to people here in Sheffield, the other goal of the restaurant is to help my dad feel better back home because the life that we had before is gone.
“The way I see it, I could be here crying about what’s going on, but I’ve got to live my life. Even if it’s not in Ukraine, I’ve got an opportunity to do something great here in England.”

DE Yummy can be found on 8 Cumberland Street and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10am – 7pm, and Sunday from 10am-4pm.
