potato pancakes, DEN?

Hovering around the Boston board I was reminded of an old fave, the gypsy pancake at a Polish place called Cafe Polonia. This consisted of two giant potato pancakes filled with a layer of goulash and topped with sour cream. Gluttonously sloppy joy in every bite.

Any Mitteleuropean joints (besides Cafe Berlin, which I found mediocre) around that do stuff like this?

      Oh, thanks! I've noticed that place but when I ask friends who live in Baker about it they all shrug, They serve food?

      Have you tried anything else there?

        I've never been there. I just remember someone told me that they serve Central Europen food. Another possibility is Budapest Bistro on South Pearl St. I don't know if they do serve the potato pancake but they do have great goulash!

        You know, I sort of ruled it out from the goulash angle, but looking at the menu I see they make corned-beef hash–latke sandwiches! That's awesome! Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.

          I am actually known as the Potato Queen by my parents and siblings, and I must say that the potato pancakes at Zaidy's rock.

      2. New York Deli News on Hampden east of Monaco also has really good potato pancakes.

        1. Golden Europe in Arvada makes excellent potato pancakes and also serves goulash and/or goulash soup (neither of which I have tried). And of course, they have sour cream.

          Are you hankering for this now, or are you planning to wait until it cools off a little? :-)

            I don't know, so many of you seem to have good ideas, maybe we should all do a latke crawl!

            Crawl in this case being the operative word...oof.

              I know it's random but I think the Original Pancake House might do potato pancakes.....I've never had them but their German and Apple pancakes are to die for.
