    I think about those halusky at least twice a day! Thanks Sally for a surprisingly delicious dinner.

    Unless the names Chara, Hossa, Bondra and Gaborik mean something to you or you’ve seen the torture porn flick “Hostel”, you may not have even heard of Slovakia. But its cuisine and that of its ex next door, the Czech Republic, left us silent as all we wanted to do was eat. Bryndzové halušky, the national dish of Slovakia, was a revelation – soft potato spaetzle with a thick white sauce made with bryndza, a sheep milk cheese with a hint of blue cheese funk, topped with cubes of smoky bacon. While halušky is a must have, knedlik is merely a must try. These dumplings are dumplings in the same way that matzah balls are, not the way that raviolis are. Reminiscent of steamed crustless Wonder Bread or Chinese mantou, knedlik is at least useful for mopping up sauces. For our greens, we had the boiled beef in dill sauce. With such amazing hearty food, it’s no wonder that the tallest man to ever lift the Stanley Cup is Slovakian.

      The spot was taken 3 hours ago, but I made a spot for you. 9 is the maximum number for this dinner. For parties of 10 or more, Koliba requires ordering from a limited menu or ordering in advance.
