Full description
When most people think about Polish cuisine, there is one thing that springs to mind - “pierogi.” But these tasty cheese and potato dumplings are served in all the English-speaking restaurants. For a more unusual taste of Poland, take this 4-hour food tour of Warsaw and learn what Polish cuisine is really all about. Savor Polish dishes in 4-6 carefully selected establishments, and hear the stories behind them. Discover why the Poles complain about the quality of the bread, and why they sometimes long for food produced in the 1970s. Learn why you can’t trust an invitation for “a cup of coffee,” and much more. Be prepared for the equivalent of a full meal, with dessert of course! But as you’ll do some walking, you’ll be able to work off some of the calories as you go - just remember to wear a pair of comfortable shoes.

Important information

Know before you go

  •  The golden rule of Polish hosts is to serve the amount of food that will make a table collapse. If you enjoy Polish food, you may be sure that a tour makes for a full meal with a dessert. It will be a good idea to eat just breakfast. Please, skip lunch or you won’t be able to try everything
  •  Polish cuisine is based on pork, so if you are vegetarian many dishes served during the tour won't be suitable for you
  •  Please advise of any food allergies you have so the menu can be adjusted
  •  A non-alcoholic option is available, so minors are welcome
  • If the guide responsible for the tour considers a participant to be unreliable or otherwise unfit for the tour (either drunk, aggressive or behaving in a way which makes continuation of the tour difficult), then the guide may refuse the participant or ask the participant to leave. Such a refusal is not grounds for a refund

Recommended without restrictions - just great!

Essen tells the story of a country - this is the motto of this tour. Each dish told a piece of Polish history and was well chosen. The dishes were also excellent in terms of taste! In addition, with Michas we had a very good guide who gave us some interesting information and was just in a great mood. Conclusion: the tour is highly recommended!

Cultural gem.

My grandson and I loved the tour, we not only got to enjoy a lot of Polish favorite foods - who knew I would like beet soup but Michael also told us a lot about Polish culture as we walked through many parts of the city. My grandson found lard much to his liking. Michael was very prepared and very engaging.
