Baltic European Deli, Dorchester


I went to Café Polonia again for lunch. I pretty much had what I had last time: stuffed cabbage, pierogis, kielbasa, and their sublime potato pancake. The thing I want to write about it is that after lunch, we went across the street to the Baltic European Deli, a Polish grocery, owned by the same people as Café Polonia.


It reminds me a little of Karl’s sausage kitchen; they have a deli case filled with a dozen sausage varieties. I told the friendly girl behind the deli counter that it was my first time there and what did she recommend? She pointed out two of her favorite smoked sausages, so I got a large link of each.


I wandered in to the pastry section and pick up a large poppy seed loaf, it looked like a pound cake, but packed with poppy seed. I brought it to the register and the friendly girl left the register with it and came back with another pastry: a poppy seed strudel. “You like poppy seed?” she said in her heavy polish accent, “This one, I like better.” I agree to go with the strudel instead. My girl did not steer me wrong; it was delicious. It was moist, exploding with poppy seeds, with almond and orange flavor. The kielbasi were great, too. I’m going back soon.
