Sojourn in Slovakia: Day 2 (Part 5)

After a long day of searching for relatives, it was time to relax a bit and have something to eat. We went to Sabinov in search of a restaurant.

We walked around the main street for a bit and then decided on “Broadway Bowling”–a cute little restaurant with a two-lane bowling alley!

The menu was quite extensive–not just Slovak food, but Italian, Mexican, and even some American dishes. I decided to stick mostly with Slovak food since I rarely get a chance to enjoy it at home.

I order borscht and then fried cheese. I also ordered a “greek salad” because I wanted something healthy.

This restaurant must have had a small kitchen because they brought each order out one by one–the first person to order got their food, then the next, etc. Finally, we all had our meals. The portions were large. We then ordered palacinky–crepes. One was with cheese and the other jam (my favorite). We chose the ones served with ice cream (I never had these with ice cream!). They were delicious! Glad we all shared them because I never would have been able to eat the huge serving by myself.

After our meal we headed back to Peklany. It was a full day. Ginny, Andy and I sat around talking about all that happened and transferred our pictures to our computers. It was a great second day in Slovakia. We didn’t have any set plans for the next day–there were a few different options. We wanted to wait and see what our hosts would suggest and see what type of weather we would face.
