One of my Polish girlfriends recommended Continental Treat's pickle soup a while back, raving that it was almost as good as her Baba's. *GASP* As good as Baba's?! "Almost" was her sheepish reply. As its always difficult to live up to any cooking made by Babas, me and my boyfriend finally got a chance to drop by for dinner. I had high hopes their pickle soup will live up to my fond memory of my last bowl I had years ago made by a friend's Baba...a rich and savory potato and vegetable soup with the distinctive taste of pickles.
The decor is a mix of bohemian and elegance, with french doors leading into the front dining area and a well stocked bar in the back seating area. We were greeted with rich woods, candlelight, enticing smells drifting from the kitchen and friendly helpful staff. Onto the food!!
Helena's famous dill pickle soup - salty, savory, rich, with each spoonful loaded with carrots, celery, onions and some finely diced pickles. Angelika, you were right, its close to Baba's.. just needed a bit more potatoes and milk to round it out. Mmmm!
Overall, a great little spot for a rich indulgent dinner, awesome traditional pickle soup and you'll need a lot of willpower not to stuff yourself silly!
