Adam Carolla chronicles his recent trip to the land of "white people food."
Adam Carolla really likes Midwestern cuisine -- or, as he calls it, "white people food," which is apparently a scarcity in Los Angeles.

So on a recent trip to Minneapolis, Carolla made a stop at Kramarczuk's Deli on Hennepin Avenue, our local "Polish joint."

It sounds like he wasn't disappointed. From a podcast of Carolla's radio show:

Carolla: We didn't realize it was, like, cafeteria style, where just all the sudden you walk in, and you're just in line, and you're holding a tray. And we're starting to panic, because we're waiting for someone to come to our table and order and shit like that, and that's not how it works.

Co-host: Like a St. Pauli girl?

Carolla: Yeah, we had one of those working behind the counter, like this hot Polish chick, and I couldn't understand a fucking word she was saying, but she was hot.

Kramarczuk's: Home of European food and hot Polish chicks.
And it's funny, we're standing in line, and we're behind, as luck would have it, a big fat couple. Like, fat woman, fat dude. And I said, "What should we go for," and she's like, "Just get the combination. Just get the combination platter, that's all you need, and you'll be taking some of it home."

And I said, "Are you sure about that?" And she said -- that's the place we're at, uh I don't know, Kramakaras? I can't even fucking pronounce it, that's the good news.

It was just a crazy place. And the thing that was funny is, I say to that fat couple, so I go, "So are you sure about this call? Because we're all going in." And the chick literally goes, "Look at us," and I went, "Yeah."

This might not be exactly how we want to be known by the rest of the country, but it's certainly a good endorsement for the Twin Cities food scene. Listen to the full podcast here.

What's with this guy? Do we need a war in eastern Europeso he can learn a little geography (it's the only way we Americans can do it)?I'd like to hear more about the food with a lot less snarkyness.

I used to live in NE by Kramarczuk's, it was one of my favorite places.  I only make it back to MPLS every couple years now, but I do my best to hit up Kramarczuk's!  Nothing like them in Oakland...

Kramarczuk a polish joint?? This is BS. Ziach Polish Deli on Washington ave is a Polish joint, they have the best deli meats delivered every week from Chicago.

AC gave Kramarczuk's a nice shout-out at the show, saying he loved the food and wished they had one in L.A.  (Incidentally, the show had the strangest audience I think the Fitz has ever seen; it was a whole auditorium of people who greet a body with things like "DAAAWWGGG!!!".)

Kramarczuk's is not a "Polish joint"! It says Ukrainian Sausage Company right on the side of the building! Calling it a Polish joint" is offensive!
