OK, admittedly the cuisine is not as appealing in the summer, but as soon as the weather turns cooler, a hearty dinner of kielbasa and pierogi warms the heart and soul. Pick up the ingredients for a sandwich or a meal at the Polish Deli, whose freezers burst with Alexandra’s dumplings filled with potato, potato and cheddar, meat or fruits. The family-owned 14-year-old shop is stocked with other delicious European goodies, including jams, breads, cakes, cookies and candy. Paczki (Polish doughnuts) are great for holiday gatherings. And a selection of kielbasa (shipped weekly from Andy’s Deli, serving Chicago and sausage acolytes everywhere since 1918) is always behind the counter. 5900 W. Charleston Blvd., 702-259-2008.
