Traveling in Poland – Polish Food

Top pictures from my brief visit to Poland, to the capital city of Warsaw and the renaissance old town of Poznań. Armed with a few words in Polish, I met some incredibly friendly Poles, got to taste some delicious food in old Soviet-era milk bars, and biked through various neighbourhoods of Warsaw. It was an incredibly fun trip.

I was familiar with Polish food prior to travelling to Poland – having extended family, and living close to the Polish neighbourhood in Toronto, and all. However, the food I found in Poland was many times more delicious and varied than what I was expecting – not a surprise at all.

There are a lot of food options depending where you eat. Restaurants and cafes in the historic old cities predominantly cater to tourists and tend to serve slightly pricey mediocre food. Milk bars – Soviet-era canteens on the other hand serve cheap, no-frills, food in a very efficient manner. You need to know what you are ordering though, or just go with an adventurous mind. Numerous bakeries and cafes will keep you well fed with desserts and caffeine.

We had barely scratched the surface, hope you enjoy eating your way across the country!
