After WWII, Warsaw was completely flattened to the ground and the city had to be reconstructed from there forth, something that you may not expect when wandering around this city. What one does not have in terms of metropolitan appeal, one shall make up for it with a lasting impression on the palate.
The sister and I first came across pierogi, a beloved Polish dumpling, we had the savoury option. After hearing much raving about a blueberry version, we decided to give it a go as we strolled around on our last night.
The verdict? A sneaky squirt of blueberry juice rocketed itself at me as I pried into pierogi but thankfully, did not make it far across the table. Still can't get my senses to agree with me on a sweet-ish dumpling but hey, it was strangely addictive and the addition of hot cream toned down the berries' acidic nature for an overall subtle outcome.
We ordered a few individual chocolates from the front counter and boy oh boy, were each chocolate silky smooth and creamy. Also had a few chocolate shots and each one was yummy:) Last but not least, chocolate crepes filled with whipped cream. Overdosed we were on that very night.
For those unfamiliar, paczki is the Polish version of a doughnut that is often topped with candied citrus bites. Each paczki costs about 2euros but after 5pm, it does become half priced. Even the sister who is not usually big on sweets made an executive decision to grab two of them after gleefully stuffing herself with it in the morning!
