Having enjoyed my first visit to Polo at the White Eagle Club in Turner, I was back this week again for the Wednesday night specials.
The menu was a little different this time and I think it keeps changing.
The Mushroom and Cabbage or Cheese and Potato Pierogi ($10 or $14 with a wine of beer) were still on…
….but there were also Koldunai – handmade Lithuanian dumplings – pan seared with bacon and camrmelised cabbage ($13 or $17 with a drink). These were offered in Beef with Horseradish and yogurt sauce….
…but my favourite were the pork and fennel with apple and fennel slaw.
The Veal Goulash $16 looked pretty good – wrapped in potato blintz with pickled fennel/kolrabi and sour cream.
There were also good looking ricotta fritters $10….
….Kodunai – handmade sweet cheese dumplings with chooclate custard $13…
…but I think liked the savoury dishes best.
There’s a nice choice of wine or beer to go with your special and wine pours are generous.
Opinions seem to be divided about this venue and not everyone agrees with me, but I love it here! It’s so relaxed and friendly and everyone is enjoying each other’s company as they share a simple meal and a drink.
…And it is noisey in some spots. But the library is a quiet spot (though it might be a bit too quiet for some) and surprisingly the main area (with carpet) is quieter than the room next door (with a wooden floor).
A couple of other things I learnt this time are…
- Get there early and order quickly as the line gets long.
- Book by texting 0422898617. It’s easy and you get a very quick, friendly and accomodating response.
- Ask for the mainroom near the kitchen or the library if you need somewhere quiet.
I’m looking forward to another visit already!
