Dropping Zloty: What I ate in Poland.
When traveling, I mostly spend my money on food. Luckily the zloty went kind of far…
What I ate in Poland:
Coffee Heaven was my saving grace. It’s a Polish chain…maybe? But the menu was in English. So I understood it. I went there like a bazillion times.
The worst piece of pizza ever from a window in Warsaw. The dough was way too sweet. The sauce was way too sweet. And you know I like sweet.
I pointed to this in a self-catering place in Warsaw. I thought it would be pork but it was actually fish. Whatevs.
Sometimes you realize you are free to do whatever you want. So you get cheesecake and a white mocha for dinner.
After Auschwitz, and a car ride both ways that made me puke, and a thunderstorm that made me not want to go far, I stepped into this little restaurant around the corner. And I ordered onion soup and potato pancakes topped with beef stew. And they gave me a little toast with a three-meat blended thing on top.
I got meat pierogi one day. Am I a bad Polish girl that I never even knew that pierogi came in meat? I thought it was just cheese or saurkraut or potato or plum. I also got apple pie. Because apparently dessert here is important.
Yeah. So I really didn’t mean to go to McDonalds. I hate going to American chains when I travel abroad. But I was starving and it started pouring rain while I was standing in front of one so I ducked in. The Polish word for McNuggets is apparently McNuggets. I don’t know the Polish word for honey though but she just gave me bbq sauce without asking anyways.
And on my last night in Krakow I treated myself to duck and dumplings.
Gelato in Krakow. Orange, chocolate, cookies and cream. (My gelato count was pretty high. Maybe I should have gone to Italy…)
