Roughyed What is Polish food like? & Krakow Folk Club? (15) RE: What is Polish food like? & Krakow Folk Club? 08 Nov 06

My wife is Polish, although she was born and grew up in England. What you will find in Poland depends on where you go. You will find a wide variety of food in the main cities such as Gdansk, Warsaw, Poznan, Krakow and Wroclwaw etc. If you want vegetarian (and we are) you will have to work for it a bit. I would suggest selcting a mixture of items from the 'dodatki' (side dishes) and asking for them 'razem' (together).

Otherwise you will find plenty to eat. Try pierogi (very filling polish ravioli) bigos (soup with sausage - better than it sounds) nalesniki (filled pancakes) szaszlik, kielbasa the list goes on. The soups are fantastic, the people are wonerful and you will fall in love with the country as I have.

You will find Poles who speak English in Krakow and probably Warsaw. Elsewhere you will be OK in big hotels but don't expect it in restaurants or the street. If you would like to PM me with more details you are very welcome because I have extensive experience of the country as a tourist and visiting in-laws from 1990 to date.
