Q. We have lived in Wilmington almost seven7 years, after moving from Michigan. We are Polish-Americans and really miss a Polish meal called golumbki, or stuffed cabbage with a meat and rice filling. Do you know if this is sold in eastern North Carolina?
For fans of Eastern European cuisine, Wilmington can be a tough place to call home.
For several years, Tatyana’s European Delights carried a selection of groceries from that part of the world, but sadly, owners Sergey and Tatyana Zarubin closed their doors at 125 S. Kerr St. earlier this year. While the offerings are limited, Joe’s Oasis at 6400 Carolina Beach Road does prepare a few plates Poles are sure to recognize. Owner Kathy Krizner, a Pittsburgh transplant, sells pierogi and kielbasa, although galumbki isn’t a menu regular.
Our own Ken Blevins makes a Southern version of the dish based around pulled pork and collard greens. For a video and his recipe, visit http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20110113/ARTICLES/110119833
