Krakow – Main Sq, Obwarzanek’s and Wesele for dinner.
Had we not opted for a taxi we wouldn’t have seen how beautiful the square was! I can’t believe we nearly went home without going here!
In the above photo you can see the Cloth Hall beautifully lit up, this building is the central and main feature of the square.
We suddenly felt like we were in Europe and felt very welcome with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. (Standard tourists).
Before I came here I noted a few things I wanted to try and see. 2 things were food delicacies: Zapiekanka (half a baguette with various toppings) and the Obwarzanek (chewy dough pretzel like ring thing).
I didn’t go out of my way to find either, in all honestly I forgot about them. But as we walked the streets in search of a place to eat I stumbled across this little stand.
I recognised the Obwarzanek’s straight away and hopped over to him.
They are boiled before being baked and then usually topped with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, mixed herbs or cheese.
One of these cost me 1.5 Polish Zloty, the equivalent of 30p.
I had to give it a go.
I had a little munch on it as we continued walking – trying not to completely ruin my dinner. It had a very subtle sweetness which meant it didn’t need a filling or dip. It was moist enough which meant you weren’t gagging for a drink after either.
A winner in my eyes. Perfect snack on a day in the city.
As we continued to walk, this barrel caught my eye.
Well not the barrel, the little white piece of paper in the windowy-thing.
And the menu wonderfully reached the same standard.
To start us off J went for the Traditional fried potato pancakes,
This was AMAZING and i finished every single last bit.
We shared a couple of hot apple pies and ice cream between us which finished us of perfectly.
We may have gone all out on the starter, main, pudding and drink. But we were on holiday and my god, the food was worth it.
