Port Richmond is home to the city’s largest concentration of Polish residents. So, it only makes sense that neighborhood also boasts the finest Polish foods.
In just a few blocks, there are countless pierogis (some cheesesteak-filled, it’s still Philly after all), hundreds of hand-stuffed sausages and perhaps the best doughnuts in the city.
And even if you don’t know yourgolabki(stuffed cabbage) from yourgolonka(stewed pork hock), the owners of these Port Richmond Polish spots are more than happy to walk you through the menus.
They’re friendly, proud and ready to introduce you to the warm and entirely comforting world of Philadelphia-accented Polish fare. City Paper Food editor Caroline Russock takes you right inside four Polish restaurants and a supermarket. Click for her story.
