Port Richmond serves up some of the most authentic Polish food this side of the Atlantic. The area's Eastern European community throngs local Polish, Russian and Lithuanian restaurants and delis. Krakus Market is famous for its selection of meats and pierogis, while Syrenka Luncheonette dishes out homemade Polish cuisine cafeteria-style. If you're lucky, you might catch the Polish American String band rehearsing for the Mummers Parade.
