Polish winters aren’t exactly polar, though they do tend to fall on the harsh side. Don’t get it wrong, we love a white cover of snow as much as anyone else, but after five months of wading through it we’re thrilled to see the sun break out and melt the damn stuff. Even though summer is still a couple of months away, we know that great things are waiting along the way—and, like most great things, they’re edible! Come join us in the search for Polish springtime must-haves.
Sure, Kraków has many good restaurants. But there are dishes that are best enjoyed on the streets or on the go. Check out our list of the best Kraków street foods. And if you’re asking “ok, but where to find them?”, the answer is simple: in the streets!:)
The deal is simple: you come to Poland and MUST try pierogi. We live here and, in fact, rarely eat them out. Check this yourselves: ask a random Polish person where to get the best pierogi in town and they will all tell you ‘grandma’s’! Not very helpful, is it? So still bearing in mind that there’s no place like home for this classic Polish fare, we decided to spend the weekend having ruskie, z mięsem, z kapustą i grzybami and a bunch of other, more ‘experimental’ fillings of pierogi to give you the definite answer to the question: where the best pierogi are served in Warsaw?
When the family grows, it’s time to celebrate! And this March we’re happy and proud to announce that our Eat Polska project is now a family of three: Warsaw, Krakow and Tricity! Wait a sec, Tri… what?! You may have not heard this name but at the same time, may have already booked your holidays in one of the hotels there!:)
We’ve all heard that a good breakfast is a must. It boosts your energy and you lose weigh.. Not.
Still, at Eat Polska we all like to relax, hang out with friends, and get ready for a new day. We’ve made it through a bunch of popular (and off-the beaten track) breakfast spots to choose the ones we like most. So when you’re in Warsaw, you need to check them out.
You’ve made it to Poland and you have a to-do list. You know that you have to see the Old Town in Warsaw, the Cloth Hall in Kraków, and you need (not!) to lick walls in Wieliczka salt mine. You want to try some good Polish vodka, Polish kiełbasa, and Polish pierogi (‘pierogi’ is plural, so we don’t say ‘pierogis’). You are seated in a restaurant and you’re trying to make it through the menu. You know that feta, sun-dried tomatoes, or smoked salmon do not sound very Polish, but there are so many options. What to choose, which filling is the best? Here is our top 5!
