Finally try the Polish restaurant Polka at Eagle Rock. I’ve heard about their kitschy interior and oh boy~ it’s so full of wonders. There’s no kitschy interior complete without a ‘moving waterfall lightbox.’ There’re so many random things hanged on the wall: parachuted Santa Claus fan, vintage tennis racket, etc. When the owner served me the Mint Tea, she gave me an old picture book of Poland to read.
KROLEWSKI (Royal Plate): a sampler plates contains Pierogi (dumpling stuffed with potatoes & cheese), Golabki ( Stuffed Cabbage filled with seasoned pork & chicken & sautéed onion), Gulasz (Beef Stew). I like the beef stew the most, very tender, juicy and flavorful. The dumpling (Pierogi) is stuffed potatoes and cheese, while it’s tasty comfort food it is also SCARY with heavy heavy butter taste. ^^;; There’re some gnocchi-ish bites on the side, they’re very good. So much food~ While there’s a home cook feel to the dishes, there’re also a canned food taste to them (the veggie sides, soup…etc).
When the bill came, it also came with a cherry chocolate, yum!
