MOM MOM’S POLISH FOOD CART
When I was a kid, I loved going to my friend Jimmy Kovaleski’s house for two reasons: One, he had an older sister who would bask in her bikini on their backyard patio. Two, Jimmy’s mother was a proud Polish cook, and the smells in that kitchen were enough to pull me out of that backyard. Sometimes.
Anyway, a food truck offering pierogis, kielbasa and other Polish delights? Count me in. For $8, Mom-Mom’s offers up a generous plate of pierogis, those delicious dumplings of dough filled with cheese, potato or meat. They’re fried in butter and simmered with caramelized onions. We loved the savory cheddar pierogis, along with the non-traditional pastrami Reuben pierogis with buttered rye breadcrumbs. Drop a dollop of sour cream on top, and I’m back in Mrs. Kovaleski’s kitchen.
We also enjoyed the $9 kielbasa sandwich, made with Czerw’s smoked Polish sausage. It’s grilled and served with sauerkraut and beer mustard. The long roll was not as fresh as we would have liked. But overall, a success.
Mrs. Kovaleski would be proud. You can find the daily location on Twitter at @MomMom NomNom.
