Since the new year, we have been somewhat skipping the bakery visits and having lunch Saturdays at some of Cleveland's classic restaurants. I have not posted as of yet, but will start today. These places are classics for a reason! Laura Taxel's book Cleveland's Ethnic Eats has been a wealth of information. along with word of mouth.
This afternoon we hit Little Polish Diner at 5772 Ridge Rd. in Parma. It is a very small, bright place with only about 8 tables. The special today was one of my favorites, Chicken Paprikas (with a side of cucumber salad), which I ordered and DH ordered the Polish Sampler (1 Large stuffed cabbage, smoked keilbasa with sauerkraut, 2 potato cheese pierogies and green beans).
The paprikas was very good, and came with spaetzle. The only thing keeping it from being better for me was that it came with white meat chicken and I prefer dark meat. For me, there was enough for 2 meals.
DH enjoyed his galumpki and the pierogies very much, but thought the keilbasa was a bit overcooked, but still tasty.
