2nd visit October 2008

Chicago has a very large Polish population, not sure if it's still true but at one time there were more Poles in Chicago than any other city in the world except Warsaw, Poland. There are several areas in Chicago where you will find Polish restaurants, bakeries, delis, etc., the area around Milwaukee Avenue and Belmont is one of them.

We chose Red Apple as a place to have a VT meeting when Matcrazy1 and Matcrazy0 visited Chicago from Poland. Red Apple is a very casual Polish buffet style restaurant with plenty of hot and cold dishes to choose from. I'd recommend looking at the whole buffet before piling up your plate, it all looked so good and most of it is very heavy and filling. Everything I tried was still the right temperature and none of it appeared to be sitting out for too long. I think they get a lot of locals here, we saw many men dining by themselves on our 2nd visit.

Favorite Dish: This isn't a place to go if you are on a diet, besides the large variety, much of it is heavy food like pierogis and dumplings, potato pancakes, a variety of meat dishes including sausage, turkey, chicken, roast beef, breaded pork cutlets, schnitzel and more. Plus cold salads and a wide variety of pastries, fresh fruit, potatoes, rice, and sauerkraut. The buffet is $10.99 on weekends, $9.99 on weekdays and includes everything but beverages, a real bargain!
