Things to buy at the Polish shop

Postby Madman Munt on Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:54 pm

What is good at the Polish shop?

When I go to the Polish shop I never know what to buy. I haven't a clue what most things are due to the funny writing and those that I do I can't tell which brand is good and which is bullshit. Maybe everything is good! I don't know. If you have recommendations, please post them below. Pictures and descriptions welcome.

Sorry for lack of specifics, but I had to jump in:

hot mustard (get the hottest)

smoked ham (the kind that is dry, cured, whatever)

the Polish version of Pim's cookies -- the ones with sponge cake, jam and chocolate

If they have a bakery, try the rolls (or bread) that are completely fucking covered in 50 different kinds of seeds. They look like a bird feeder and get seeds all over the place when you eat them. The dense, dark rye breads can be cool, too. Sometimes they call them "farmer bread" or "grandma bread" or something.

There are several Polish places still hanging on in Greenpoint, but lots have turned into "$14 Hamburger" places and Millennial Booze Emporiums, alas.

Specifically, what kind of shop are you talking about? Do they have food? Are they making stuff in-house?

Here are some nice things from Poland.:

Charcuterie.

Rye bread.

Bigos.

Compote.

Mustard.

Horseradish.

The Polish shop. A shop run by Poles for Poles in a non-Polish country. Full of Polish shit imported from Poland. Just normal everyday stuff, but Polish.

Yes, mostly food.

I should have made clear that I'm not talking about a Polish deli. Some of these places may make some stuff in house, but generally that is not the main focus. They will have a large selection of sausages. And extremely sweet pastries. And bizarre confectionery and mysterious beverages.

mysterious beverages

Compotes? Non-alkie fruit drinks, sometimes with the fruit and cloves tossed in, are yum.

I am big on a polish brunch, great for a hangover.
start with the obvious - pierogies (dumplings), which you can get with different fillings. I prefer those filled with kapusta (sauerkraut) - boil or fry them. You can also get kapusta mixed with pieces of pork which you can use as a base to which I slow cook and mix in different kinds of kielbasa - these vary in spice, smoked/unsmoked etc.
I am sure the owners of your shop would be generous with their time and give you guidance.

Krajana kielbasa- decent enough as a raw sausage, but I tend to eat it plain from a frying pan. At least once every couple months.

Kaszanka (blood sausage), fresh from the deli. Quite tasty, pan fried and served with a side of warm bread and shot of vodka.

Is that the same, or different than, Kiszka?

I love that stuff. Fry some up, a couple eggs, some nice bread, and it's the best breakfast ever.

I believe Kiszka is basically the same thing. Kaszanka is more ground up, like Mexican chorizo. That breakfast sounds nice.

We do not have Polish stores. But we do have a ton of Russian/Ukrainian 'european' delis. They all seem to really hang their hats on the 'European' thing.

anyhow- I never know what to buy, so I rarely go in. Ideas?
