We’ve long been fans of Sophia Para’s eponymous Polish food shop in Fells Point’s Broadway Market. But now with the market’s recent total renovation (just look at those beautiful wood-beamed ceilings!), we can
actually take a seat at Sophia’s Place and order up a bowl of red borscht or a pierogi platter and enjoy them at a counter. Para still stocks 15 varieties of Polish sausages, containers of creamed herring and worth-the-trip poncki or Polish doughnuts, filled with plum butter or rose-flavored marmalade. (Imported from New York City, they’re available only on Fridays.) But she’s added a selection of soups and sandwiches, ranging from duck pâté with hot pepper cheese, honey mustard and lettuce and tomato on pumpernickel to a Mediterranean veggie panini. Still, we’ll always return for her golabki or stuffed cabbage. As we recently overheard a woman at the counter utter breathlessly after sampling a bite: “Oh, damn, that’s good.” Open Mon.-Sat., 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
