The Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville or the Ren Fest as it is called by the regulars, is one of the most popular fall destinations for fun loving Texans. Because eating good food is an important part of any festival, the Ren Fest has hundreds of food vendors to satisfy the taste buds of just about anyone. Every type of food imaginable resides in the brightly painted shops that line the sidewalks and as you make your way to the back of the festival grounds, you will see a colorful shop that displays a prominent Polish flag along with the Polish Eagle.
This food shop is an extension of Polonia Restaurant, Houston’s only restaurant that serves authentic Polish cuisine. Owners Andrzej and Sharon Szpak provide a good variety of authentic Polish food. Festival goers can order pierogi, golabki, kielbasa, golonka, kiszka, paczki and sernik along with the more common festival food such as turkey legs, chicken on a stick and the ever popular funnel cake. Piwo, wino and non-alcholic drinks are also available. The food and drinks are served by a friendly staff dressed in traditional Polish and medieval costumes. Beautiful Polish Eagle t-shirts, aprons and hats along with other gift and souvenir items are available next to the food shop.
If you make it to the Ren Fest this year, be sure and visit the Polonia Restaurant shop for some good, authentic Polish food. You won’t be disappointed!
