Five lucky people win a dinner featuring an updated Polish classic in this week's Guess the Food contest. Are you one of them?
If you've lived in the Niles-Morton Grove area for awhile, or if you're of Polish heritage, you've probably been to White Eagle Banquets on Milwaukee Avenue in Niles. White Eagle is the answer to this week's "Guess the Food" contest, in which we asked you to look at a pictured dish and guess which restaurant makes it. Ted Przybylo, one of the siblings who runs the banquet hall and restaurant their parents brought to Niles in 1967, showcased the golabki (pronounced go-wahmb-kee), or stuffed cabbage rolls. They're stuffed with a seasoned pork and rice mixture and served with a tomato-based sauce, said Ted, a graduate of Kendall College's Culinary Arts School. Stay informed.

Four people correctly guessed the restaurant which makes this meal, so we held a random drawing.
Welcome to Niles-Morton Grove Patch's Guess the Food contest. Yesterday, we showed you a photo of a meal and asked you to guess which restaurant makes it. Today, we reveal the winner of the free meal, as well as the restaurant--Celli's Italian Beef and Sausage, 8080 N. Miwaukee Ave., Niles. Owner Dominic Celli says the traditional Chicago sandwich is a Vienna beef hot dog with mustard, relish, onion, tomato, pickle and celery salt. He thought customers might identify the photo from the home-cut fries. Celli's also serves burgers, wraps, burritos, salads, Italian beef, Italian sausage, gyros, chicken sandwiches, a fish sandwich and a pepper and egg sandwich. Four people correctly guessed Celli's, so Patch held a random drawing to determine…

It's a special Greek recipe, prepared by a Morton Grove restaurant with a Niles owner. It's on the border of the two towns. Perfect for the week in which Niles-Morton Grove Patch launches.
Did you guess correctly in our Guess the Food and Win It contest? It's Athenian chicken from Kappy's, with a pedigree the owners brought from Greece. "It originated with my mother. She came to the restaurant and showed the boys how to do it," said Kappy's owner George Alpogianis. Through tinkering over the years, the recipe evolved into what it is today. "It's juicy, tender and it packs a punch in terms of its flavor," Alpogianis said. "There's no salt, so it's not only good in terms of flavor, it's healthy too." The secret to the flavor lies in what he called the holy trinity of Greek tradition--olive oil, garlic and oregano. And the potatoes, slow-roasted in olive oil, are also heart healthy, he said. Two people correctly guessed the …
