Polka Polish Restaurant (Eagle Rock)

By in 03: Eagle Rock

Our friend told us how the food at Polka reminded him of his Polish grandma’s cooking. Freda had been to this Polish restaurant years ago and forgot about it. So it’s time for us to go back and refresh our memories.

Love the delightful, kitschy space that resembles a grandma’s home. Polish tea with rum, it’s a comforting drink that warms you up.

The tasty salad would be the one and only refreshment to start off a heavy feast of meat. The soup is yummy in a junky, creamy way.

Polish Sausage, very good! Especially with the onion sauce.  Gulasz (Beef Stew). The meat was tender and it was very hearty

This basically has everything: Royal Platter: Pierogi (Polish Dumplings), Golabki (Stuffed Cabbage), Gulasz (Beef Stew). The portion is huge, I could only managed to eat half. I like the dumpling (which had cheese and potato fillings) and goulash a lot, the stuffed cabbage was alright.

Bigos: Polish Hunter Stew (mixed of stewed sauerkraut, mushrooms, sausage and beef). Basically it is a stew of every ingredients that’s featured in other dishes. Delicious.

Our group occupied half of the small space and limited seatings.  Most of us took half of our plate home because the portion was generous. I ate my leftovers few days later and somehow I found them to taste a lot more delicious than what I had at the restaurant! Perhaps that indicates Polish food “last” well?

    I wasn’t expecting Polish food to pop up during summer, but I’m so happy you did! I’ve always had an affinity for this kind of European cuisine and am really excited to try a place like this in LA. By the way, me and kitsch go together like THIS! Thanks! :)

  4. Will be stopping by during my next visit to LA to try some bigos. Smacznego!
