Where to eat tasty meals

where to eat in Lodz

 

 

Polish food

Foreigners may find some Polish meals weird...
**kefir or zsiadłe mleko (sour milk) is milk in the first stage of fermentation. Sounds gross? Why do you eat youghurts, then? ;)
**ogórki kiszone (sour cucumbers) - they often go with the main course as a salad and are a great match for vodka ;)
**bigos – dish made of sour cabbage, mushrooms and sausage or meat, traditionally cooked for at least 3 days
**śledzie – salty herrings in oil / garlic / tomato sauce, another snack to go with vodka ;)
**smalec – animal fat with bacon, onion and apple, used as a bread spread
**chrzan (horseradish) – very spicy additive to meats,
the European equivalent of wasabi

Bar at the Academy

located on the 4th Floor, opens from 9am to 7pm. Serves lunches, snacks, tea, coffee, and cold drinks. There are always two or three dishes to choose from. You can buy a soup for 3-5 zł and a main course for 5-10 zł or both things together for a lower price. Don’t wait until the end of the day as the amount of hot  meals is limited.
