Following the uncomfortable day of sightseeing we headed back to the hotel before deciding to go out for tea that evening. As we were only in Kraków for a couple of nights I decided that to make the most of what culinary delights the city had to offer that night we would eat a different course in a different restaurant. So that's what we did. Opposite our hotel was this very busy café/stall advertising their main food as placki ziemniaczane. The café was busy from early morning all throughout the day until late in the evening. It smelt so good whenever we went past it so I decided to go have a mooch at what a placki ziemniaczane was. Upon closer inspection I found out that what they were selling were potato pancakes. Much like a potato rosti, they were made up of shredded potato and put into a pancake-like batter before being shallow fried. I was then offered a choice of toppings and chose to go for the meaty goulash sauce. For a total of £1.30 or 6.50PLN I was very happy with my cheap starter. This picture doesn't do the dish justice and it actually looks like a hot sloppy mess, however I can highly recommend this cheap and mouth wateringly tasty plate of food.
For the following course we went into a classier establishment and I ordered Kaczka Pieczona z Jabłkami. For those of you that don't speak or read in Polish, then this dish is Roast Duck with Apple Sauce. I had half a duck and this was accompanied with rice and a side salad. I love duck so therefore I loved this dish. Also in the restaurant we managed to get our hands on a decent bottle of red wine for a nice cheap price. Good Food + Cheap Quality Wine = One Happy Traveller.
Dessert came from a bar in the main square. Apple Strudel with plenty of cinammon and cream and ice cream and all round goodness. Washed down with a pint. My evening was complete. It was hands down the best apple strudel I have ever eaten.
I smiled throughout whilst devouring this plumptious apple beauty and probably for a good five or ten minutes after I finished eating it.
Keeping on my favourite foodie topic, the following morning before flying home I had this lovely plate of food for breakfast. Breakfast mainly consisted of different cold meats, but boy were they good.
