Video Break: Vendy Award Nominee Old Traditional Polish Cuisine

If you didn’t get your tickets for the Vendy Awards tomorrow, you’re out of luck. As we told you, tickets would sell out and they did earlier this week.

No fear, you can still sample the food from all the Rookie of the Year nominees since they all have at least one regular rotation day in Midtown. We’ve been posting videos on all the nominees, so check out the droolworthy souvlaki from Lil Zeus Lunch Box, pork belly buns and popcorn chicken from Kaya NYC, southeast Asian tacos from Coney Shack, and tomato poached egg sandwiches and platters from The Shuka Truck. And if you want to see videos on the other categories, click here.

Today, we’re showcasing the final nominee. Old Traditional Polish Cuisine serves just what it’s name says. Giant grilled kielbasa are incredibly smoky and crisp and make a filling, hearty meal when paired with pierogies stuffed with meat, cheese, or potato. Follow them on Twitter to find out when they’ll be in Midtown next.

Click the link below to check out the video. If you’ll be at the Vendys, get ready for some serious eating and if not, don’t forget to buy your Vendy tickets early next year!

Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Truck Serving Paczki Soon

Last week we were thrilled to try the new truck on the block: The Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Truck. Though their menu has started off pretty simple with pierogies and kielbasa, word on the street is that they’re starting to serve paczki on Wednesday! (Turns out the truck had to undergo maintenance so they’re not out today.) However, questions you may have are 1) what’s a “paczki” and 2) how do I even pronounce this word?

Well, a paczki is simply a Polish donut with a sweet filling, such as plum jam, or the ultimate traditional filling: rose jam. And, paczki (the plural of paczek) is pronounced “punch-key.” You can thank the Internet for schooling us on this one.

Last Wednesday the truck was parked on 51st and Park, but you’ll want to check their twitter or the ML Twitter Tracker to confirm before heading out.

Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Food Truck Hits Midtown

A new Polish truck hit the streets of Midtown this week and Lunch’er Alexa was kind enough to send along this pretty detailed report…

I’m so glad it was sunny yesterday, because it forced me to take a walk outside of my office building and run straight into whiffs of delicious pierogies and kielbasa coming from a new truck I’d never seen before: the Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Food Truck. Parked at the northwest corner of 51st and Park, this homey looking truck, painted as if I were visiting my long lost old Polish grandmother’s wooden cottage, offers a simple menu of potato & cheese pierogies, meat pierogies, grilled kielbasa, and pretty much any combination of them all for $10 and under.
