Big Ugly Mich
I don’t know about Poland, but many Poles, including me, love Ma Baensch’s herring on a saltine. Ma’s cannery is on Prospect Avenue, a little south of North Avenue in Milwaukee, WI. Don’t get the white sauce, at least I never do.
Seriously, When I was in the Marine Corps, a lot of us ODed on soba served off trucks. A small slice of beef, a lot of those little noodles, and beef broth was a great substiute meal. Sort of a Japanese hot dog as it was good, simple, portable, and cheap. I don’t know if they made anything else, though. I’ll be sure to check that out next time I watch the Cubs
Yano, that’s one of the neat things about Chicago. You can get food from just about anywhere, sometimes with a distinctive Chicago flair, like Chicago Style Pizza, but it’s all good, even if it’s not all good to me.
I used to live right down the street from Matsuya and I can proudly say it became a habit. The sushi was great when I was going there. Glad you found the place.
Good to hear there is a good Japanese place in Chicago. Hatsuhana and the place owned a beer company are expensive and not so good. There is a very good family style place just north of the river that was our standard when I worked for Itochu, Intl.
Polish food? Cabbage in everything and lots of vodka.
I didn’t know grilled TROLL was polish food
Danimal – Thanks I will be making a quick trip to chicago this weekend, sounds like a great place to grab a bite.
I have passed by there several times and wanted to stop but could never find the time, hopefully I can make time on this trip.
No, it doesn’t.
It’s one thing to post Polish recipes on the Polish food thread, but how about knocking off the hijacks on other threads? The international forum USED to be one of my favorites[:(!]
Can’t you just keep the Polish stuff on the Polish thread, so those of us with more than a singular interest can participate and enjoy it!!??
BUT POLISH FOOD RULES!
Was this a payed ad
Danimal, the place sounds great. The next time we’re in the area, we’ll have to give it a try. Last year, the Shogun Japanese restaurant opened in downtown Racine. They have a wonderful sushi bar, as well as the hibachi grill tables. The place is packed for weekday lunches and weekend evenings. FYI, I’m back selling hot dogs & Polish on Saturday’s. We’re located at the Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee in the Brewer’s Hill neighborhood on the Milwaukee river. We vend for the Saturday tours. The tours are for families too. Your kids will love the home made root beer. Visit the Hot Dog forum for details and e-mail me if you decide to take the trip. I want to be sure I’m there and not subject you to another Jake’s incident. Jake’s is less than 10 minutes from our location and you could always get some corned beef and a rye bread to go. OTOH, the sometimes close early on Saturday’s because they sell out of product.
Sorry to be a poor reporter on this, but I don’t know if it has tonkatsu or bento. I’ll check next time and let you know.
Jeepguy, too funny! And thank you!!!!
Thanks for the post! That price for your meals sounds great! Even here in Kansas City, $10.25 isn’t out of the ordinary.
Does Matsuya have tonkatsu and other bento meals? My favorite food in Japanese places here are the combinations that include soup, salad, entree, rice, vegetables and tempura or california rolls. It’s always a bargain and wonderful food.
Chicago is on my list of travels in the near future. I’m noting your post[:)]
Doesn’t anybody want to discuss my original posting?
Hey Polish guy, do they have sushi in Poland? If so, who serves the best and why, and where are they located?
