Oh, I will now nicely put a cross on myself and thank to dobri Bog. Yeeees, Italians are much darker. Just go to the EXIT music fest and observe Serbs. Serbs have lighter skin than even Austrians.

From the time when Slavs ruled Chicago >

More trolling and make up stories from the Serbian Spammer!

Serbs never helped Poles in Chicago..... Only in your dreams.

Dont believe a word of it Milo. Ive debunked his stories multiple times about Chicago. The last scabs he claimed to rule Chicago was a soccer team that nobody went to see..lol😂

I can name six Polish restaurants and clubs that went out of business, starting with Polish Villa, Patria, Warszawianka, and Red Apple,

Most of the Poles have already moved out Chicago to the suburbs ( like you and I ) to get away from what you described. The ones that didnt leave Illinois for good that is.

Crow is a clown that hasnt a clue about Chicago and his fictitious posts should be removed from here

I just seen on a local Chicago news they did a poll about naming a school after Barak Obama

81% said NO
19% said Yes

His Presidential library might meet the same fate as "friends of the park" are stopping him from destroying our lovely lakefront. lol

Make it the Church of Holy Barak and all resistance will be gone. You know, freedom of religion, the 1st...

Cool, I never made it to Chicago but I have heard lots of bad rumors about the place... I#m pretty sure there some redeeming qualities to the place - like a like nearby.

God loves you when He arranged you live in a Slavic Chicago. On the other side, its a small service considering he set you in the States. But well..

U Gazdy

Gazda, ha. You lucky...

Slavic Chicago

A Slavic Chicago that does not include Serbs.
By far, the majority of Slavs in Chicago are of Polish or Ukrainian descent.
Serbs are not included or welcomed there.

It has a Highlander style motif to it and the food was very tasty. They had these mashed potatoes with bacon and buttermilk sauce that was to die for.

If you every come to Chicago stop by this place!

I went to Polish deli this morning for some goodies to take home.

True, there's a lot of Germans and tons of Irish as well.. I only of know 2 serbs and Crow is just making stuff up as usual.

It was Raspberry:) I should have taken the photo from the front duh. I really like this deli and go early on Sunday morning, otherwise its packed full of babcias and you have to wait in line for 30+ mins. You have to get there early before all the good loaves of bread are gone for that day as well. Ill take some more shots next week of pierogis..

.Did you see the waitress? I mean the hot one...

It must haver been her night off...lol We had a very friendly waitress, blonde hair, not real skinny, same one?

I dont like those picnic table and benches though, my dupa was hurting after an hour...lol

That's why I will not go there again. I will never forget the hell I went through sitting for an hour on the floor in Japan.

I was wondering, because it looks pretty reddish, but the petal rose jam filling is the most classic one, I guess :) Do they have it at that deli?

The babcias buy them out ;D

That's the highlander style:

Life in the mountains is tough, so you have to have a tough dupa ;D

@Joker

That is a pretty amazing deli.
We have some pretty good Polish supermarkets and deli's here in the UK but nothing like that!

@Paulina

I really like that highlander style of furniture but yeah, could do with cushions to protect your dupa! LOL!!

If you ever come to the U.S. Ironside, come see where the normal Polish people live.
Where I live in a very Polish populated area there are no shootings.
In fact they had a huge Polish Festival this week end just north of where I live.
We danced, drank beer, ate great Polish cuisine and partied until the cows came home last night.

On that festive note, crying' shame we don't live anywhere near Greenpoint, Bklyn.! Lodi?? Don't make me laugh! Closest to any "polskosc" 'round these parts would probably be Doylestown, PA and the American Czestochowa Pilgrimage Site. From Fort Lee, that's ooohh, 'bout a two hour drive easy(:-

Haven't been to a Polish bash in at least four years and I'm gettin' mighty itchy. Thanks for the upbeat post, Johnny, especially in these COWID times-:)

This is a black ghetto gang problem area not Polish.
These restaurants aren't anywhere near where the shootings occur. I wouldn't go there if it was.

Polish supermarkets and deli's here in the UK but nothing like that!

There are quite a few of them as well, even bigger ones. It can be challenging on the weekends as they get really crowded.

Labor Day weekend, Lyzko!

The largest Polish Festival in the USA

..........and I just found out they canceled it until 2022 :(

Chicago is a ********. It's imo one of the worst cities in US, a tad above Detroit.

Most of them moved out to the suburbs... you can count on one hand the amount left in the Polish Triangle or on Belmont

The weekend after Labor Day Lyzko !

We have the most Polish Festivals in the USA

Since Northern Michigan is heavily populated with Polish ancestry, we have lots of Polish Festivals.
The next one is September 10th - 11th - 12th.
The Pozen Potato Festival where the population of Pozen is the fifth highest percentage of Polish ancestry population in the United States.
Chicago isn't even in the top 100 in that category.

posenpotatofestival.com/2021-festival.html

The Posen Potato Festival has been an annual event for over 50 years.
Posen has a strong Polish background, so the Posen Potato Festival not only features potato as its central theme, like most other food festivals, but also concentrates of authentic Polish

We even let the tourists from Chicago attend.
Can anyone guess how the village of Pozen in Michigan got it's name ?

Oh good God. Your dupa? Please. I will pretend I didn`t sow this.

Now, tell me man, do they have rakija there in U Gazdy? Rakija is must if they are serious.

Where is that deli located? Looks like a place I'd like to visit next time I'm in Chicago.

The only things worth buying from a Polish deli are flaki, tatar, and pierogi. All will require immediate refrigeration.

The one I go to is in Algonquin, but they have several locations...

They make pierogis daily also. I like their soups actually, I usually get a variety for dipping my grilled cheese sandwiches made with fresh Polish "Orkisz" bread")

The best tatar is from Smakowski in Palatine. They spice it up well enough to be ready for immediate consumption.

Is this the place you are talking about?

We like our little Polish restaurants that are much more authentic than the commercialized ones in the big city.
Poles that live in the Chicago that come here as tourist on vacation are always impressed with the food and atmosphere of true Polish culture.

You just don't find this in Chicago.
