Where can I find SWEET CABBAGE (a Czech dish), called "zeli"?

Liquid Sky Jul 4, 2006 05:34 PM

Hi All,

When I was in Czechoslovakia, I often had this side dish called "zeli", which I can only describe as a sweet cabbage.

It looks a lot like sauerkraut, but it's softer, darker and just a little bit sweet.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND IT -- either in a deli or a restaurant?

Are there any Czech, German or other Eastern European restaurants that might serve it?

Thanks, Chowsters!

    Maybe Warsawa in Santa Monica (it's Polish).

      There's a Hungarian deli in Burbank, Otto's that may have it.
