Two Places To Find Polish Food In South Carolina
by Esme Addison
When you’re searching for good Polish food in South Carolina. You have two options. Yes, only two. One is a European grocery store-slash -cafe and the other is a food truck. On my last trip to Charleston, I stopped by Euro Food Bakery & Cafe. You can read about my experience here.
Unfortunately, I was not able to visit the second location on this list. It’s a food truck, and as such was just not available. BUT the next time I head to Charleston I will definitely make sure I try them out.
Marrying into a Polish family, Polish food and culture was very impactful on me. So much so that my cozy mystery series, A Spell For Trouble and A Hex For Danger follow a young woman name Alex Sobieski as she discovers she’s descended from the Mermaid Of Warsaw.
I have a LOT of Polish food in my stories. So much so that I’m constantly asked to add recipes to the back of the book. You can read about the Polish desserts I feature in my book here.
You can also view a fun video I created with my mother-in-law explaining how to pronounce the Polish words in my novel. This is a request second only to recipes!
But without further ado, here are the only two places you can find Polish food in South Carolina! If this changes, please contact me and let me know. 🙂
Family owned and inspired by his mother and babcia, Krystyna, husband and wife team Victor Krupa and Anne Goliver run Krystyna’s Food Truck along with the help of their four children.
Victor and his family serve traditional Polish favorites like: pierogi, golabki, kielbasa and bigos. Krystyna’s also caters. Review their menu.
Maka Aptsiauri and her husband Aleksandr Pavlichenko started Euro Food Bakery and Cafe in 2006. Pavlichenko is from Ukraine, and Aptsiauri is originally from the Republic of Georgia. Together they serve a diverse mix of East European food, including Polish entrees like pierogi, bigos, zapiekanka and golabka.
