Baltic Cruise — Gdańsk Lunch


Gdańsk

Touring on foot around Gdańsk, Poland is a lot of fun.

The buildings are colorful, the streets charming, and the architectural details photogenic:

But eventually you’re going to need to stop and refuel. So let’s take a look at some typical Polish dining fare, beginning with pierogi (not to be confused with Russian piroshki — my recipe for that here: Fun Food Friday — Piroshki ). Pierogi is similar to a Chinese dumpling, but in this case the filling is usually a savory meat concoction, fish (such as salmon), spinach, cheese, or even potato when served as a main course:

In addition to dipping sauces for savory pierogi, somepierogi may instead come with a citrus squeeze:

Pierogi is often accompanied by different kielbasas, sauteed onion, and rustic bread:

Another traditional Polish dish is zupa ziemniaczana, typically a watery yet tasty potato soup. The one we had this day was a bit creamier than usual, and it was served in a bread bowl:

And what would a Polish lunch be without a Polish beer to wash it down? This one is a Tyskie:
