Wys’mienity, delicious, or zachwycaja çy, delightful, is how everyone who visits describes Polka, the little restaurant fused between Eagle Rock and Glendale in a tiny, obscure strip mall. For 11 years, this modest, tucked-away spot has been a cheering squad for some of the best and heartiest Polish food around.

Long ago, food critic Elmer Dills boasted about coming here all the time. Prices are retro low, especially since every meal includes soup, salad, sides and dessert.

Come to Polka for tasty, plentiful plates of food. Some favorites are the wonderful Kielbasa, broiled Polish sausages, and Pierogi, Polish dumplings filled with seasoned pork and chicken or served meatless with sauerkraut and stewed mushrooms or potatoes and cheese.

The tastiest Golabki is made here, which is stuffed cabbage filled with seasoned pork, chicken and sautéed onion. Wolf down other entrees like Królewski, which is a combination of Pierogi, Golabki and Gulasz (pork and potatoes).

Lots of vegetables round out the authentic Polish home-cooked meals, along with a choice of herbal teas that add to the down-home character at Polka. There are also all-you-can-eat party specials from $18 to $20 per person. This is a great find!

Polka is located at 4112 Verdugo Rd, Los Angeles, (323) 255-7887. Hours: Open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wed.-Sun. For more information, visit www.polkacatering.com.
