Staropolska Restaurant Review

: If you don't know the meaning of the phrase "Tu Jadamy Jak U Mamy," you certainly will by the time you finish dining on heaping plates of pierogies and potato pancakes, kielbasa grinders, stuffed cabbage and schnitzel at Staropolska. New Britain is home to Connecticut's largest population of Polish immigrants and descendants, and this restaurant is filled with all of the smells and even the sights --- via satellite TV --- of the Motherland. The restaurant's aim isn't to impress you with its d├ęcor; it's to stuff your belly, affordably. For about 15 bucks, you can wash down a plate of bacon, cheese and potato pierogies with a pint of Zywiec and call it a meal, but if your Mamy never cooked the rich specialty that is pork cutlet a la Gdansk, a tender pork loin stuffed with mushrooms and onions, or made you hunter's stew, branch (and fill) out a little by trying these authentic dishes first.
