Last Saturday Tigran, Darren and myself drove to Hamtramck to get some Polish food. Hamtramck (pronounced “Ham-tram-ack”) is so broke that it can’t even afford the third vowel. Another possibility is that they have a majority of C developers who voted for Hmtrmck when finding a name for the city and in the end they all compromised on having at least two vowels.


We went to the Polish Village Café, had some beer and listened to the guitar and violin players. I had the Polish plate with a little bit of everything and it tasted amazing. I think I never had Polish food before and this was very close to what I would call traditional food from my region. It included sausage that tasted like Krakauer, mashed potatoes, Sauerkraut and something similar to a Kohlroulade (with Ketchup).


Afterwards we checked out the recently opened HopCat which is a hip and new bar in midtown Detroit. With 150 beers on tap it has the largest selection I’ve seen here so far.
