Just had a zen moment over a cup of borscht. It was the single best cup of soup or anything of that ilk I've had in my entire life.

Was married to a Russian woman for 10 years. Never really developed a taste for borsch.

I had some good borsch in Belarus when we were there, but it wasn’t good enough to make me want to eat it again.

This was from the best Polish place in town. Their pierogis are to die for. The only places I've had that quality of Polish food are Cleveland and Toledo. The owner was just putting up the little borscht sign on the menu--he was super pumped about and I was just yeah fuck it haven't had it in a long time why not. Man it was so good. And on a cold day--great timing.

There's a Polish American Hall in Seattle. Fridays they have a dinner service. I had pickle soup with some crazy polish beers and then awesome kielbasa with potato and cabbage.

soup was like $4 for a huge bowl, meat was like $12, beers $7. huge portions.

Best part.... You have to pay $1 membership to get in (so they don't charge tax) and I only had $20's. I ask door guy "dude can you change a $20", his response "Of course, I am not a Jew". I laughed my ass off.

Never stopped there personally that's where the GM assembly plant is right? I still go up to Detroit a few times a year--what's a good spot?
