We have sizable minorities living in most large towns and cities in the UK, however I've never seen a Turkish shop
There aren't really that many Turks in the UK, to be honest - not outside north or south-east London, anyway. Go to Lewisham or Haringey and it's like Little Istanbul.
or an exclusively Chinese food shop in such Prevalence.
Well, we all know you live in a small town, so that's hardly surprising.
There's nothing particularity exotic in these Polish shops
It's called "things which remind you of home". It's natural. Moving abroad isn't easy, unless you're an "expat" with all the corporate benefits. Most English people won't move 100 miles for work, never mind 1000, so stop moaning about people who are actually willing to do something with their lives, other than troll online.
I'd happily live on Polish food in Poland, but I'd miss a lot of things you can buy here, but not easily over there. Like Chorley Cakes and Worcester Sauce lol.
picked cabbage and cucumber
Well, how did you think they are harvested? They don't hatch out of eggs!
Sad Brits spend hours driving up and down the costas weeping for heinz baked beans and marmite.
You know those guys who sit on the beach in Torremolinos, while eating fish and chips instead of "foreign muck", while wearing Union Flag shorts? That's hudsonhicks, that is :D
No doubt you associate with Poland because one or both of your parents are from there????
Funny how you such a problem with Poles, yet not certain people who are a far bigger threat to the UK - or do you troll "their" forums as well?
What happened? Did some Polish girl tell you to **** off or something? lol
Pickled Cabbage with Dumplings
I can't say that I recognise this dish, is it like fish pie with treacle? haha
