Something interesting for lunch today: Baza's house-made kielbasa
Saw some of these bad boys coiled up in their hot bar and thought I'd try some, so I put a 4-inch section in my to-go container. I'm nom-noming it now back at the office.
It's fantastic! Natural casing, coarse meat-y filling, with a harmony of spices, none overpowering the meaty taste. and little colorful bits of this that and the other. And I get plenty of garlic taste.
These would go great in a hearty, winter-y soup (like solyanka), plain, or even on a toasted potato roll. Hell, throw some ajvar on there.
Their potato pancakes are good too (crispy edges, very potato-y tasting), but only when just brought out, as you can imagine.
Anyway, cool sausage bro.

Had the house/home-made kielbasa today for lunch. I'll second Prav's nomnom. I also got a really tasty mix of potatoes, carrots and mushrooms with dill and some rice. I tried the potato pancake, but I don't think my timing was right because they were pretty soggy and greasy.
However, I think my favorite thing might have been the half-sour pickle that I got (it's on the back wall towards the deli. It was delicious - just the right mix of crunchy and tart. I could eat those things all day.

I like their stuffed cabbage too. The meat actually had a meaty flavour and wasn't bland like a grey sock.
Their pastries have been quite nice, too. Had a slice of their Napoleon / Mille-feuille and it was light and not too sugary.
Great little shop. I also work down the street (cross from the Marshalls), and I'm glad we have a decent amount of chow options!
