Adventure Eating: Polish Cuisine
• What we'll do Adventure Eating is about eating other ethnic cuisines that are outside of our normal cooking and take-out rotation. Although we occasionally order organ meats, sweatbreads, etc, this isn't the main goal. We eat family style, shared plates, appetizers, etc. If you are a picky eater, this really isn't the event for you but continue to read the guidelines if you persist on signing up. http://www.philly.com/philly/columnists/craig_laban/review-dinner-house-polish-cuisine-port-richmond-20180112.html • What to bring Cash/small bills/BYOB • Important to know Street parking only Adventure Eating Guidelines 1) We eat family style. That means there is no, "my entree" or "your appetizer," etc. 2) When a dish is delivered in front of you, please take a portion knowing everyone needs a turn at it and make sure the dish makes it's way around the table. 3) It's called adventure eating for a reason, if you are a picky eater this isn't the event for you. If you are a lacto-ovo-pesce-vegetarian we could likely accommodate you. If you are vegan you may or you may not get your money's worth. If you want to order your typical General Tso's Chicken, Beef Broccoli, Honey Walnut Shrimp you are missing the point of the event and forcing everyone else to accommodate your non-adventurous eating palate. If you still insist on signing up please wait until closer to the day of to see if there are any open spots, you can order off a separate check. 4) Don't be shy on making order suggestions that are in line with the adventure eating theme. The longer we take to order, the longer it takes us to eat. There will be lots of time to socialize in between. So make it a priority to look at the menu. Look at reviews before hand for recommendations. Try to vary the choices, if one noodle dish is ordered, then maybe two noodle dishes are not necessary. I am usually more than happy on ordering what I want to eat for everyone, but I also don't want to feel like I'm babysitting you. 5) Don't be shy in getting seconds after the plate has passed around the table once. No one likes to waste food. 6) Eating family style allows us to eat a variety of dishes, and for the most part at a lower cost. We order 8-10 dishes in a combination of appetizers, entrees, and occasionally a dessert. Occasionally, there may only be enough of a dish to get a tasting. 7) Occasionally, depending on the age/gender/shy factor statistics of any given group, you may need a pizza slice afterwards to feel full.
