Eastern European fare takes a starring role at a local Hammond deli.
MJ Polish Deli features Polish dishes and other Eastern European specialties. Owner Mariola Magana and her husband purchased the business a decade ago in Hammond.
The business actually has been in existence for 20 years under other owners. It's been important for Magana to celebrate and promote the cuisine and assorted food specialties of Poland through her shop.
At the deli, Magana offers a variety of food stuffs including fresh sausages, sandwiches, pierogi, soups and stews, salad and more. Polish pastries and sweets, such as specialty candy and poppy seed bread, also are featured.
For Magana, keeping the Polish traditions alive when it comes to the food arena is of utmost importance.
With Easter less than a week away, Magana is selling holiday-related items at the shop. They include Easter tablecloths, runners and place mats as well as painted eggs and Easter baskets, which were made in Poland.
During a recent visit to MJ, we tried one of the sandwiches, which featured Polish ham, Muenster cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. It was a simple yet flavorful sandwich and was a good size. The Polish word for sandwich was recently written on the chalk board of the deli encouraging patrons to "Try a Kanapka." The pierogi at MJ is also a favorite and extremely tasty.
Magana said she's now carrying panini sandwiches. Among new sandwiches are the Hot Reuben; Ham Melt; and Turkey Melt.
Carry-out orders are popular at MJ, but those wanting to dine in can sit at a table in a corner room of the business. The dining area has Polish decor on the walls and on shelves, including dolls and other decorations.
Besides food, customers also can purchase everything from trinkets to greeting cards at the store.
Step into MJ Polish Deli for a little taste of Poland. Spending even 15 minutes in the shop offers a delightful little tour and a bit of an ethnic history lesson.
