Galicja is a pleasant, typical local bar with an eclectic clientèle that happens to serve draft pints of Pilsner Urquell, a really good Czech beer, for less than the price of domestics at most bars. On Friday evenings, free with the purchase of a beer, the owner puts out an incredible buffet of home made food.
Galicja attracts a truly diverse crowd. In the early evenings, it’s mostly anglos taking advantage of the pleasant atmosphere and great prices. You’ll find technicians from the nearby Fuld hospital and Trenton firemen filling up the joint. Later at night, it becomes mostly locals, and takes on a decidedly eastern European cast.
The Friday buffet makes a great dinner. Last time I was there it consisted of:
- Potato perogies
- Roast potatoes
- Kielbasa sausage and sauerkraut
- Stuffed mushrooms
- Clams (in the shell) in some kind of light tomato sauce
- Shrimp in a heavier sauce
- Beef pot roast
- Cole slaw
The quality of the food was very high, as good as most restaurants in the area (the owner apparently cooks it himself at home, and brings it in). It’s all you can eat, and there’s plenty of it. It’s just about the best deal in town, in a town filled with good deals.
