Those Pierogis at Babushka's were astonishingly good; bigger than any I've ever seen before, and cooked perfectly. Could've used a bit more grilled onion to go around our hungry group, but I reckon we should've asked for them that way.
Next time you're in Chicago we need to drag you to Smak Tak! (Polish for "Delicious, Yes!"), a brilliant Polish restaurant on the northwest side of the city. If you liked the Warsaw at Babushka's you'll go nuts for the Hungarian Pancake at Smak Tak! Similar idea to the Warsaw, but instead of roast pork, they take a dinner plate sized potato pancake, fill it with goulash, then fold it over crepe style, and top it off with dollops of sour cream. One order will easily feed four (with other accompanying dishes, of course).
That was a fun night wrapped up with some tasty frozen custard as I recall.
As always, a lovely report with some great photos and good memories.
