Best of Polish/ Roncesvailles
I'm sure I've buggered up the spelling of the street, but where would you recommend for a Polish food neophyte in that area?
Starapolska is quite the experience. The Flaczi (tripe soup) is tasty. Polenez is good. The deli with a short name that begins with W (Wadja?, Warmia?) has good paczki and sausages.
Yes, the spelling is a long-running challenge.
Some years ago, a cop on the beat encountered a dead horse blocking traffic on Roncesvalles near Dundas. He took out his notebook and pencil, studied the corpse for some time, grabbed the horse by two legs, heaved it a few feet to the north, and made the following entry in his report, "Dead horse, Dundas south of Bloor."
True story. I don't lie standing up or sitting down.
