Welcome To Alyonka

Born and raised in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan, Elena DeYoung is the event coordinator for Boise’s popular Russian Food Festival. She’s organized the fundraiser at St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Church since its humble beginnings 14 years ago. Back then, church volunteers baked in her Meridian home.

Nowadays, the annual event serves between 3,500 and 4,000 people over two days, and she keeps hearing the same request: “Where is the place we can eat food like this?”

As owner and chef, Elena created a familiar menu at Alyonka Russian Cuisine now open at 2870 West State Street in Boise, Idaho.

What People are Saying


“Highly recommend. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and welcoming. The servers were very attentive. The food was outstanding. We had chebureki appetizer, carrot salad, stroganoff, pork kabob with rice and vodka balls for dessert. We left happily, but not overly, stuffed. We will be back again very soon!”


“Fabulous food & flawless service”

The owner Elena is an amazing chef and the warmest hostess. I am so very excited that she is opening a restaurant. Boise area is so lucky to add this restaurant to its cultural offerings.


“Creative Cuisine”

Celebrated a birthday here and had a fantastic meal and a wonderful time. We enjoyed several of the appetizers, they were all large enough to share and were unique and delicious. The kabobs, stuffed pepper, and stroganoff entrées were cooked to perfection and came with a marinated side salad complimenting the meal.


“Highly Recommend”

The desserts were out of this world! The baklava and poppy seed ganache were devoured in spite of having stuffed ourselves. The service was perfect, the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommended.
