Something I'm sure your boyfriend has eaten a lot of (personally I like it but the restaurant version is rather different).

More likely to be eaten by Polish Americans than by Poles. Ate it often when I was growing up in Scranton. You could even buy the blood in the supermarket. But never even saw it during my twelve years in Poland. Can't even say I ever met any Pole who ever ate it, in fact.

Delicious, if homemade. I had it in a restaurant once in Chicago, though, and it was God awful. Nothing at all like the homemade version.

Most everything between the two are essentially identical.

I grew up in a neighborhood (Detroit) that was about 30% Ukrainian, 50% Polish background, here, parents were first generation American-born. Gołómki are a classic difference that I noticed between the two. Ukrainian's fill them about 8/10ths rice, Poles about 8/10ths meat (ideally 1/3 ground beef, 1/3 ground veal, and 1/3 ground pork). The Ukrainian ones are way bigger than the Polish ones. Otherwise they taste the same. Pierogi are exactly alike, far as I could tell. I never saw a Ukrainian (or myself) eat czarnina. Poles made the best babkas, Ukrainians I knew there, put together tortes to die for. I spent many a cloudy depressing early March day making pisanki at my Ukrainian neighbor's house. Poles just used Paa's easter egg dye on Good Friday.

Yes.. that is most likely what Bejma meant. I really don't know how it came to be but I grew up calling them Golomki also. I'm 2nd generation Pole in the US. When I first found out they were actually call golabki, I thought perhaps my family just called them Golomki because one of the oldest children couldn't say it right and it just caught on with the rest of the family. As I got older I found that many of the Polish families here called it that. No idea why.
