Six Degrees in Kiev and Bacon

I'll be in Lviv and Kiev, Ukraine and Lublin, Poland for the last two weeks of January, and I'm curious about food and sightseeing options.

Re: food, I'm a fan of cake at little cafés, folk-y restaurants, little carts that sell hot beet soup on the side of the road (if these exist), local markets, and anything that I wouldn't find at home (which is northwest Poland). (Also: local beer recommendations? I love this one
Sightseeing-wise, I'm cool with the cold (heh) but obviously being well-heated is nice. Hidden gems, worthwile tourist traps? I like gold-domed cathedrals, quietly beautiful cemeteries, abandoned theme parks, and cobblestones.
I speak quite a bit of Polish and can read Ukrainian (often but not always), and I'll have a local phone and internet access, too.
