Smooth or chunky? At a Polish restaurant like Krolewskie Jadlo ("King's Feast"), that generations-old conundrum for peanut butter fans presents no problem for pork lovers. Begin with smalec (Smah-lets), a pork spread to accompany sliced pickles atop rye; continue, perhaps, with a particularly meaty version of the cabbage stew called bigos (Bee-gos; at lunch, $10 all told). Ordering an entree secures bread for the table, and bread for the table entails smalec; between smooth and chunky, there's no need to choose.
