Food Truck: Old Traditional Polish Cuisine
Sighting: 47th and Park
They’re probably not going to win any awards for Most Original Name, but the Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Truck is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The menu is refreshingly simple. Do you want to eat meat? Do you want to eat pierogis? Do you want to eat vegetarian pierogies? Do you want kielbasa? Or you you want a little of everything?
I asked the man at the truck what the most popular dish was and before I finished my question he said it was the Lite Combo. This has a little bit of each–kielbasa, pierogies, and pickle salad served with bread. So I went for that.
Here’s what I got:
The pierogies were IMO the star of the show. They were made fresh with a great taste. The exterior was slightly doughy the way I like it. The spinach and cheese mix inside was flavorful without being overpowering. They made a nice balance with the pickled vegetables.
The kielbasa was outstanding as well. It was perfectly cooked with a slight char which made a crispy snap when you hit into it. Again, the flavor was just right and it certainly made a filling meal with the piece of rye bread and mustard.
4.5 of 5 stars.
