“I felt lost in translation while looking at the Polish menucard at Milbar Warsaw, but luckily this milkbar is one of the few that is tourist friendly. Prepare yourself for an authentic Polish food experience.”
Maybe this milkbar doesn’t scream ‘bohemian hotspot’ – but if you want a real Polish food experience you should go here. A milkbar is a place for traditional Polish food like pierogi, soup or cutlets. As the name ‘Milk Bar’ suggests, dished based on milk and diary product play a special role in these menus.
This is one of the milkbars that is tourist friendly and has an English menucard. Don’t expect having a talk in English with the staff, because they will probably not understand you. Just point at the menu and prepare yourself for some traditional food.
The Polish dumplings (pierogi) are the most typical and you’ll see them everywhere in Warsaw. There are two kinds of dumplings: savory and sweet. The sweet ones are often filled with fruit and sugar while the savory ones are filled with meat or vegetables. It’s insanely cheap and it’s a very heavy meal.
Eating at a milkbar will give you an authentic view on Polish cuisine and is definitely a must do while visiting Poland.
