Porkbeaks,

My last visit to Poland I did the full tour, Krakow, Zakopane, and Warsaw, and many others. It was great. My last visit was in 2004, but I am going back in 2007 for a month or more, and will again do it all. Prices have changed even since my last visit, but this is good for Poland. I have been all over, but love Poland the most. I do have family there yet, and will visit with them, and this time my wife will go. She has never been there yet, but is scared of the plane trip, the ten hours. I have used LOT air lines in the past, but this time, want to try another. I am a big man, and LOT was a bit small space for me, so this is why I may try another. The service on LOT was great.
I like Warsaw, the Chicago of Poland. Being that I live close to Chicago, I still love the things a big city has. But the small towns are all great in there own way.
The best thing to do, is to get out and talk with the people, who are great, and exchange ideas with them.
We are looking forward to our upcoming visit.
This time we hope to get a furnished apartment in Warsaw, as a base, and a place we can have friends over for meals. It has been very hard to find this place, but have some others helping me with this search.
Has anyone use a furnished apartment in Warsaw, in the past? How did this work for you?
Any one who ever has a chance to visit Poland, don't pass it up, you will be very happy you went to Poland, if you go.
Any one who has more input on this, please share with all of us.

Mike

Trish,
As Fpczyz will testify, I am a Certified Czech!

yes I can indeed declare that Al The Mayor is a Certified Czech and to prove it I enclose a picture of Al being certified.

Here you will see Al as a little guy getting ready to be certified. (he's the little one with the bow tie ) ...... when the polka music begins he must dance under the arms of the two young Certified Czech children.

As soon as he does this he is then Certified and never has to wear a bow tie again........................ I swear this to be the truth......... fpczyz

The only weakness in Frank's Photo evidence is that I wasn't this small....at birth!!

Based on the guy in the Cowboy hat in the background I would guess that we are looking at some 'Texas Czech's'! We have often enjoyed the hospitality of the Czech villages all over Texas!

Tell me of you best mail order place for great Polish.


I was born and raised in Chicago, and lived have there for about twenty-something years. I now live in northern Virginia, in which Polish food is non-existant. During the last couple years, I've been buying pierogies mail order from Millie's Pierogies (www.milliespierogies. com) which is located in Massachusetts. They are very good.

Anyone know of a good Polish restaurants in the DC area or Baltimore?

Happy New Year,
Larry

Correct URL is http://www.milliespierogi.com/ You're lucky to have a mail order link. I gave up on Millies about 20 years ago. What I never like about them in the past was they seemed to be made of fresh cabbage as opposed to saurkraut but the site says it's a mix. So I'll have to give Millies another try.

I think we all have our favorite varities. My family used canned saurkraut and the wild mushrooms my dad used to pick. I believe he then fried the mix in butter to drive away more of the moisture and to add flavor.

The Washington Post had some info on Polish food in the area ... searching on "polka" works well too.

In the same breath ... polka/food/beer

Maryland: Krakus Deli ... Sophia's ... Ze Mean Bean ...

German Deli / Cafe Mozart -- Washington, D.C
http://www.polishwashington.com/cafemozart/index.htm

Our Lady Queen of Poland in Silver Spring apparently has done festivals with Polish food.

or you might also try Polish clubs like ...
http://www.polishcommunity.com/PolishHomeClub2/
or PRCU and PLAV clubs if there are any in the area.

If you're in the Chicago area, you may want to take a trip up nort' to Little Europe at 6613 120th Ave (right off the Evil I-94) in Kenosha (actually Pleasant Prairie if you need to use Mapquest or the like). To make a reservation, call (262) 857-9073. Sadly, they don't have an Internet presence that I'm aware of.

Hi Polish Guy
This is a recipe for a Polish Potato Vegetable Salad I've made several times and is authentic and very good:

4 cups cooked diced red potatoes with skin, cooled.
2 boxes frozen mixed veg cooked, drained and cooled.
1 box frozen peas cooked drained and cooled.
3 large dill pickles chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbs fresh dill minced
1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup of mayo
3/4 cup sour cream
2 tbs mustard

Mix all above, put in dish let chill for 2 hours or more.
Place on large plate with lettuce leaves and radish.
Top salad with 2 chopped hard boiled eggs.
***********************************************************

If you want to make it with herring, just add 2 chopped green apples with skin and 4 herrings sliced into 2 inch pieces into the salad.

Serve with brown pumpernickle bread and butter.

Good food, good ambiance (no loud drunks, which will disqualify even the finest food purveyors from the right to take Mich's money), but bad prices.

To all,

There are two basic types of Polish sausages, Fresh and Smoked. Which do you like best, and how do you make it, and with what?

Mike
P.S. We have several types of each.

The Polish Village Cafe in Hamtramck, MI (within Detroit) is World famous. President Clinton visited there, and Emeril shot a "Best of" show there. Not sure of the website but the myspace is

I prefer smoked sausage over fresh..... guess it's just the way I was brought up.....

Seved with kraut and butter and steamed fried in a skillet.

Unfortunatly, reduced to eating and cooking it at home....

PepperPhil,

Try the fresh done in the oven. Bake it until it browns, turn it several times, and serve it with home made baked beans. See what you think.

To all who live in Northwest Indiana,

Today I went to Krakow Polish Deli. in Crown Point, Indiana. They just moved to 701 North Indiana Ave. They are not big, nor do they have everthing. But they now are the only one in Northwest Indiana.
When in the area, stop in and tell them, Mike sent you in. Small is better than none.

I realize this is somewhat of a stretch, but, If your ever in London, England, you have to try this wonderful old Polish restaurant called "Cafe Daquise" around the corner from the South Kensington tube station. As an American living in London, I ate here often for it's fabulous and very reasonably priced Polish cooking. Eating there would have to remind someone of being in pre-war Warsaw.

Twinwillow,


Sounds great, London is a long way to go. Give us a name of a great place in the Midwest, if you can. Were you in pre-war Warsaw?

Thank you Mr. Mayor for giving that warning to the King of Poland. Enough is enough as wandering jew said. Sharing of holiday traditions is great, but come on--he was rude and kept badgering everyone. He seems to have calmed down now, thank goodness. You all have such wonderful ideas and comments. Happy New Year to everyone!

Bluebonnet,

If you are saying that I am the King of Poland, thank you, but I am not. I am just someone, a Polish/American who wants to keep the Polish styles alive, and the great foods they have and want to share with those who have never tried them.

There is no need for name calling. We all can share our ideas without hurting anyone.

Hello All,
I see 7 pages of this thread, and one day I will go through them all, but
for now, Polish guy or anyone else, what are the essentials of Polish food?
What are the ordinary foods, maybe some holiday foods, etc. of Polish food,
especially midnight snacks?
I am very ignorant on this and am hungry for something new and different.
Thanks and...
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

Fieldthistle,

Polish food is in a class all it's own. Check into some internet information, and try some, and I am sure, you also, will love them. Poland eats mostly pork. I know that some of this group can put you up for a great web-site, with some great Polish foods. Where do you live, what city? Are no good places to get some of this great foods?
