Milwaukee Reviews: Polonez and Croquette Cafe

Polonez:

This place is terrific, great hidden gem in the middle of a suburban setting.

We started off with the soups, the Mrs and brother got the chicken noodle and I got the Mushroom Soup. They liked the chicken noodle, i thought the mushroom soup was a bit salty but overall solid.

Then the main courses came, I went with the Polish Platter which comes with perogis of each flavor (my two fav were the mushroom and the sweet cheese one) and 1 cabbage roll (amazing) and kielbasa and saurkraut which changed my mind about saurkraut to a fan of instead of disliking

The Mrs got the same thing as I did and my dad got the fish and chips (friday only) which he thought was very good and fresh, however i did not try it

They also had a homemade coleslaw with dill that was very tasty

Overall a great meal and next time I am back i know the first place I am heading after the airport (its only 15 min away)

Also the Polish Beers there are only $5 for 50cl bottles and they are very strong 9.4-9.5 and tasty, great prices!

As great as Polonez was, Croquette Cafe failed

Inside looked very nice as we sat down and started out with french onion soup which was rich and enjoyable, very cheesy.

The main courses came, the mrs and I got the coq au vin and the hanger steak with frites and we ended up sharing because both of them were so boring

The chicken was very plain, something i could have made on a bad night at home, with an ok sauce, and the steak was so one note, the fries were very average and the aoili they got served with was not good

When i mentioned this to another of my friends he asked me why i wanted to go to a french restaurant in Milwaukee, then it made more sense, should have went with hintergarden or a german place for the other evening!

Thanks for the reccs everyone Polonez is great and now my Dad has a new place to frequent :)
