As it turns out, I got my first taste of Poland sooner than I thought!
Yesterday morning I received a text message from my cousin Kathy asking if I wanted to go to the Polish Festival in Downtown Syracuse. I was thrilled for the opportunity to try some Polish food and get a feel for the Polish community in Syracuse.
After scoping out the festival, we (Kathy, Paul, Cecilia, Kurt and I) decided on a place to eat. After considering our options, we settled on Eva’s Polish Restaurant. It was clearly a crowd favorite, based on the line.
The long line allowed me plenty of time to decide on which Polish delicacy I wanted. After careful deliberation, I decided on the Kielbasa sandwich.
It was delicious. In addition to trying the Kielbasa, Kathy was kind enough to let me try a few bites of the Polish sampler plate she got.
If Polish food in Syracuse is any indication of how the food in Poland will actually taste, I seriously can’t wait to stuff my face when I’m abroad.
Now the festival was more than just food, they also were selling a ton of Polish merchandise and were enticing the crowds with a little polka.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening of food, fun, and polka. Only 79 more days!
