The Place and the Food

Old Town Krakow has many many places to eat and drink, from casual to very fancy, so it’s hard to know how to choose. Gruzinskie Chaczapuri advertizes itself as a restaurant serving typical Polish and Georgian food. We’d walked all around the main square (Rynek Glowny) looking at different menus, prices, and eating places, and this one seemed interesting and very well priced, plus we could get a table outside, which was perfect on a warm summer evening. Also it’s nice to be able to watch the parade of people passing by. The restaurant is just on Grodska where the street leads off the square, and we could actually see it from out of our apartment window.

The meal was memorable because it was our first meal together of the trip, and even though we had only typical, everyday Polish dishes they were delicious and nicely prepared. Three of us had pierogi (a ravioli-like dumpling) with different fillings, and Sonya had the Polish sour soup (called Zurek) served in a bread bowl.

A bonus—we could try a Georgian wine! Prices were very reasonable too. We had a young waitress-in-training and she was very sweet and helpful, and was excited to try out her English—puts us to shame, not knowing any of her language!
