Galician cuisine: where to find it and what tastes best?

How does Lviv taste? Is it sweet like chocolate or flavorful like coffee? Or maybe it's bright and spicy, like Galician cuisine? Galician cuisine is dynamic and original because it was formed thanks to the tastes and culinary traditions of different nations that have lived here for centuries. It includes Ukrainian, Polish, Hungarian, Jewish, Armenian, and Austrian cuisines.
