As pets, in pop culture, and when naming pubs, rabbits are all the rage.

When The Fat Rabbit Public House opened its doors in October of 2012, residents of Folsom and beyond (including yours truly) rejoiced. In the comfortable, convivial space—adorned with dark wood, stained glass windows, a mix of seating options, and slanted, beamed ceilings—patrons are treated to their favorite fare from across the pond, whether it’s schnitzel, shepherd’s pie, a Scotch egg, or fish and chips. Served with a brew and a side of laid-back, genuine European hospitality, it’s no wonder customers hop in from sun up to down. My habitual order—placed at the bar, in true European pub fashion—is the Pierogies with a Pint of Boddingtons. These plump, doughy dumplings, stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes and sharp Cheddar cheese, then garnished with sweet caramelized onions and a side of sour cream, are my taste buds’ new best friends. The savory comfort food is available as a small plate, served three up for $4.50 ($3 during happy hour!), or a large plate, served five up for $7.50. The root word of pierogie, “pir,” means festival, and for good reason: one bite of Fat Rabbit’s version and there will be a party on your palate.
