Old Traditional Polish Cuisine
“Old traditional Polish Cuisine food truck and catering hitting the streets of NYC. Specializing in traditional and authentic Polish grilled kielbasa and pierogi’s!”
Wanderlust Weekly: Congrats on the growth of Old Traditional Polish Cuisine! What inspired its creation? Eva Lokaj: The food truck was started by my husband, Grzegorz Gryzlak, and his friend Przemyslaw Motyka. I handle all of the catering, marketing and media relations - so it really is a "family business". In the recent years in NYC we saw a lack of what we were brought up with: Polish products, custom, culture, and great food!
We always wanted to promote Polish culture and food and we found that the best way to do this is via mobility.
- when first time customers come to check out our food because one of their co-workers bought lunch from our truck and it "looked and smelled amazing"!
- when customers come to reminisce how their grandmother's or family used to make Polish food and this reminded them of their childhood
- being on blogs and TV because we are so unique: examples: Polish MasterChef, Dutch TV with Miljuschka Witzenhausen, NY Live TV with Lauren Scala
Wanderlust Weekly: The culinary field is constantly evolving, what upcoming news or developments can we look forward to? Eva Lokaj: We are looking to expand our catering services so that every office in Manhattan can get a traditional and authentic Polish lunch. Specials are always key: in addition to our main menu, we try and provide different Polish specials such as Hunters Stew (Bigos) or even Blueberry Pierogi served with sweet cream (only in the Summer).
