The Burchick and Betz families had lunch today at Ze Mean Bean on Fleet Street in Fells Point. Consulting Yelp, the restaurant is ranked as having the best Polish/Russian fare in Baltimore.

This particular block of Fells Point had an Eastern European flavor. The restaurant started years ago as a coffee cafe, and never changed names to reflect that they specialize in polish food.

I had the Slavic Sampler that included Ukrainian borsht, then polish kielbasa, halupki, pierogi and potato latke. It was all excellent, except that my wife makes a much better halupki (stuffed cabbage), which is my mother’s recipe.

Dan ordered a spaetzle omelette. Jeb, Michelle, Amanda, Nick and Patti all went with various other entrees.

Looking on the internet, I could not find a restaurant in Maryland that caters exclusively to Polish food, but it was great to have nearly as good.

Now to watch the Towson bowl game.
