Koliba - Something to Warm Your Bones

It's nippy outside and that means that it's more than OK to indulge in warm, comfort food. One of my favorite places to go for inexpensive and outstanding comfort food is Koliba Slovak restaurant. Dan and I go there on occasion and whenever we do, we end up wobbling out because we're so pleasantly full.

A couple of weeks ago, we stopped there for a casual dinner and sat at the bar, which was quite fun. I ordered my usual, halusky or spaetzle ($14.50) with sheep's milk cheese and thick cut bacon. If you decide to get this, there's no need for an appetizer or dessert--it's that filling. The bacon is one of the best that I've ever had--flavorful, smoky and chewy.

The dish that you see above is the beef goulash ($13.75) that Dan ordered. It was, hearty, saucy and the meat was beautifully tender. The best part is the knedlik or bread dumplings that come with it--it's a pleasure to mop up the goulash sauce with them!

Enjoy these savory dishes during the cold weather that we're having--they'll surely warm your bones and won't clean out your wallet.
