For the last few months, I have been waiting for Babushka’s Kitchen to open so I could surprise my husband with memories from his childhood. I always hear that there are so many more ethnic restaurants in Cleveland…which is changing these days. I am dreaming of light potato pancakes, pierogi, hulushki, and some wonderful desserts or a cookie tray. What a disappointment! This was worse than a bad Polish wedding reception that ran out of food while you were standing in line. No polka music, no drinking, no decor, no desserts…just a noisy room, slow service, and crying kids. After an hour, our food came. I ordered the pierogi which were dry and filled with instant mashed potatoes as my husband, George had canned soup and gummy Chicken Paprikash. I guess we will be traveling to Cleveland or spending all day in our kitchen. George is an excellent cook!
I am the chief dishwasher! I saw nothing like this…Restaurant was out of all desserts before 7:00 PM on a Saturday Night. We actually stopped at Carfagna’s on the way home and bought some lemon cookies and tiramisu. Back to Urban Active Monday morning…..
