Sabina's - Melvindale, MI (Detroit)
Yesterday Barkis and I ventured to the blue collar wilds of Melvindale to try out Sabina's Restaurant, on a friend's reccomendation. What with Three Brothers on Warren now closed, it seemed like a good idea. Yes, Sabina's serves Polish food and it's damned good - way better than Three Brothers and better than Jim's Place in east Dearborn.
I had dill pickle soup, and three potato/cheddar and three 'kraut pirohi (pierogi) with onions. Dill pickle soup was as good as Amadeus's in Ann Arbor, which means it's delicious. I don't think that Three Brothers had, or Jim's Place has dill pickle soup. You can get the pirohi boiled or fried. We always re-heat our pirohi at home by frying, so that's how I had mine prepared here, plus served with onions. Pirohi dough was good (my guess is that it was made with sour cream) and fillings were good too. I prefer my 'kraut more spicey (peppery) than what Sabina's serves, but that's neither hear nor there. I liked that I could get sauteed onions with the pirohi, but next time I'll double the order (you have to pay 50 cents extra for the onions - it's worth it).
The place is clean and it's a non-smoking store, which is nice. I tell these restauranteurs who run smoking establishments that if they go to non-smoking, there are three non-smokers ready to replace every smoker they lose.
I'm gettin' hungry.

We are so glad that she opened up her fabulous little place here in Melvindale. The pork chops are yummy!
I agree Sabina's is good, it's 1 minute away from my house and I'm actually just about to place a take-out order, lol. But yes, 3 brother's had dill pickle soup, that was the first place I ever had it. Brother's cabbage soup was waaaaaay better too, not to mention their soup was significantly cheaper as well. I do like Sabina's pierogies better though, and the golambki at Sabina's tastes very authentic as well. I agree the kraut could be more peppery.
