Polish food and markets in Warsaw.

Polish Food markets are great places to get acquainted with local cuisine. Some of the tastiest and best value food can be found at street food stalls. This was no different in Warsaw, Poland. Starving, we decided to explore the Old City in the quest of finding something to eat. It didn’t take long to discover a market buzzing with flavors and colors.  Obviously many others were dying to get their hands on food as well!

Vendors can be found everywhere and the dishes are prepared in minutes. The most difficult part is to make up your mind! Now for the multi-million dollar question. What do you drink with your food? Well, Poland is not very popular for it’s beer, so the best choice is Vodka. Yes, Poland is a Vodka drinking nation so grab a shot of Vodka and make a toast. Food markets are lots of fun and musicians and street entertainers can be found everywhere.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever.
