A few weeks ago, we used the pouring rain as an excuse to get in the car and drive 15 minutes to the Port Richmond section of the city. We love trying new cuisines and this area is home to a large Polish community. The Dinner House is a small restaurant, with only a few tables, but the menu is huge (love the magnet-board menu!). We feasted on sour rye soup with bits of kielbasa, potato pancake with goulash (HUGE! – not very photogenic, but delicious) and potato & cheese pierogi with fried onions. Everything was inexpensive, delicious and we definitely want to return to try some of the other items on the menu. They had some interesting home-made desserts, but we decided to walk down the block to a local bakery for a photogenic pastry.
Tobey says: I thought the sour rye soup would be weird, but it was actually really good!
Other places around the city to get pierogie include The Pierogie Kitchen (Philly Restuarant Review: The Pierogie Kitchen (Pierogie Heaven)) and Mom Mom’s, a tiny takeout only spot with amazing pierogie and cabbage rolls at 1505 South Street.
