Polish cuisine

…was a slight disappointment for me.


Of course, I like very much French cuisine and all their dishes. But Polish cuisine … is like the Slovene cuisine. Almost nothing new … maybe because of this I felt in Warsaw like at home.


Restaurant Stolica – a beautiful terrace, friendly staff and very very good food. I think it was one of the best duck I ate… except Manchons de canard pomme sautees.

zapiekanka… okey this is new… and delicious … like small pizza. Perfect for a quick snack.

nothing new … slightly different, much bigger, but similar to Slovenian Žlikrofi. Very tasty and very different types … we have only potatoes… Restaurant Zapiecek.

nothing new… but good. Restaurant C.K. Oberża.

again nothing new. It’s exactly like that Vienna steak or Dunajski šnicelj in Slovenia. But so much better and tastier. This is the best steak of kind that I ate. Normally I don’t eat Vienna steak in the restaurants. But in a month I go to Vienna, so… Restaurant Portretowa.

same story… but in a new way… and so good! It’s like Krompirjev funšterc or ocvrtki in Slovenia… Restaurant Zapiecek.



I know, I know … boring but as Sarma… Restaurant Gdański, Bar mleczny.

like Krof… although we are eaten donuts only for carnival in Slovenia in February.

This time I didn’t have the opportunity to try Zupa ogórkowa … we don’t know this in Slovenia. Something for the next year.

  1. I was really impressed with Polish cuisine, perhaps because I went with low expectations. My favourite was, Senses Restaurant, Ul. Bielanska 12, Warsaw 00-085; but nearly as good in south Praga was, Dom Polski, ul. Francuska 11, Warsaw 03-906.


  2. I’m very picky with Polish food, if it’s not done well it can be very bland and heavy. But a good restaurant or cook (like my Polish best friend’s mom) will make it hearty and super delicious!

  3. This post should have come with a warning (“Do not attempt on an empty stomach”). 😀 Great shots as always, Tom.


  4. If pierogi had not made this list, I might post a rebuke. Instead, my compliments on a very appetizing entry that included two servings of pierogi/dumplings.
