Hello! I haven't been taking any day trips lately, and my car is in the shop now, so I won't be going anywhere for awhile HOWEVER, before my car broke down, on the way to the Dog Park at Timber Creek, off Chews Landing Rd., I stopped in the Polish American Deli.
I'm not Polish but my ex-husband was and his mother was an exceptional cook. She made pierogi's, golumpki's, cherry soup, and any number of other delicious things the names of which I can no longer remember.
Although I've passed that store a million times, this time, a sign spoke out to me. It said Pierogi! So I stopped in and I will tell you now, it isn't open on Monday, so be sure to go on another day. I couldn't choose which pierogi to get, cheese, potato or sauerkraut, but I've had the others recently so I picked sauerkraut. I like the contrast of tastes anyhow, the vinegar against the dough.
In case you haven't ever had Polish food, a pierogi is a lot like a ravioli in that it is a pocket of dough with a filling. A golumpki is a pepper or cabbage stuffed with a meat mixture I used to make a vegetarian version that was brown rice - just as good. But if you want the real deal, stop by the Deli and try some.
For dessert, I bought chocolate cheese rugelach (pronounced Roo gel ah. So good. Next time I plan to get the plum rugelach.
The addres is 125 N. Black Horse Pike, Runnemede, NJ 856-939-9505 and their card says they also have babkas, kielbasy, and take-out and party trays. Enjoy!
Happy Trails, Jo Ann
