The first stop will be a little pastry shop located in an old tenement house where you will be served a Polish traditional donut, called pączek . Then your guide will take you to Warsaw farmers’ market to taste some of the great Polish specialties like Polish sausage, pickled cucumbers and cabbage, smoked fish, lovely Polish bread and a traditional soft drink. This list may vary day to day, since products availability may change due to the season. You will have to squeeze with the locals and wait in lines to get your bits.
That is why our tour is unique – it takes you to the places where no other tour agency would take you to.
Next stop will be at a local restaurant which serves delicious Polish soups – you have to try one called żurek . It is made according to one of the oldest recipes known in Poland. Second sup (daily choice), will be served too. While visiting our country there is at least one more must-eat thing: Polish dumplings. To get the best pierogi in Warsaw one has to drive across the Vistula river and experience Praga district. Our guide will take you to local brasserie where you will taste, in our opinion, the best dumplings. The food will be topped with a traditionally made glass of alcohol, the place is a daily choice of our foodie-guide.
