3 Canberra Beanies!

I have to admit that most of my past reviews have been about lunchtime specials. I will try and include more affordable Canberra dinner options in future, starting with this one!

My new fave Wednesday night dinner is the $14 Pierogi special at “The Polo”, which is the restaurant inside the Polish White Eagle Club in Turner.

Locals would be aware that the club was destroyed in a fire in 2014 but has since been rebuilt through a big community fundraising effort and it’s well-regarded restaurant has re-opened.

The Polish Club has a Facebook page, which regularly reminds followers about specials and special events.

I dropped in and wandered up to the window between the restaurant and kitchen to place my order with the friendly staff.

I chose the pork dumplings from the menu of Wednesday night specials.

When you order the special you get a small voucher to exchange for an authentic polish beer at the bar. You have three beers to choose from.

The service was quick and I had just enough time to take a few photos, scribble some notes about the menus on the wall and drink some wheatbeer before my buzzer started buzzing.

The dumplings were cooked to perfection.

I will be back and intend to sample more from the extensive menu.

AS well as great food the club also hosts regular community events and is a regular gig for the Canberra Musicians Club. More info on events at the Polish Club can be found on the website “events section”. 

Highly recommended for value and taste! – Three Canberra Beanies!

    This brings back such memories Elias, I love pierogi and still remember them, plus the stuffed cabbage leaves and doughnuts at the other Polish club (the Polish Ex-Servicemen’s Club) when I worked there back in the early 90s…will have to give these a try!
