POL­ISH FLAVOUR COMES WEST

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Jil­lian McKee

BRING­ING in­ner city-style cui­sine to Western Sydney, Ta­ble 78 in Plump­ton could earn the ti­tle of the Best In The West.

Ta­ble 78, in the Polo­nia Club, was re­cently taken over by born-and-bred lo­cal Ray Kasprzy­cki, and has earned a nom­i­na­tion in Newslo­cal’s Best Of The West res­tau­rant com­pe­ti­tion.

The Pol­ish res­tau­rant brings an east­ern Euro­pean flavour to the area in­spired by the head chef’s up­bring­ing.

Of Pol­ish her­itage, Mr Kasprzy­cki said the new menu would ap­peal to ev­ery­one.

“My dad’s Pol­ish and my mum’s Aus­tralian ... this res­tau­rant is a mix of how I grew up,” he ex­plained.

“I grew up with a love of food and have brought this to my cook­ing — it will ap­peal to ev­ery­one and any­one as long as you have a mouth you’ll love it.”

The Stan­dard scored a sneak peek of the new dessert menu this week, which con­sists of de­li­cious choco­late eclairs and Pol­ish dough­nuts for just $5.

Mr Kasprzy­cki said he wanted to make sure the food was still af­ford­able for lo­cal fam­i­lies. “I have tried to re­duce the prices on ev­ery­thing – I am not here to make a mil­lion dol­lars, I am here be­cause I love it. This is my pas­sion,” he said.

The rest of the menu con­sists of tra­di­tional east­ern Euro­pean food, such as cab­bage rolls, goulash, dumplings and pork knuckle.

Ta­ble 78, in Bun­ga­low Rd, Plump­ton, is open only on Fri­days from 5pm. De­tails: Ray Kasprzy­cki on 0452 611 978.
