Eastern Europe Trip // Warsaw: Night At Stare Miasto (Old Town), Polish Food & Polish McDonald’s – Stare Miasto means ‘Old Town’ in Polish, don’t be surprise if you see similar word like Stare Mesto in Prague, Slovakia and beyond, they all mean the same – Old Town. It’s not like the Ipoh Old Town White Coffee’s Old Town, it’s just one thing that most European cities have in common, a historic center of a city.
It’s quite funny that we go at night. Actually it was still daytime when we reached Warsaw, but we were slacking the the hostel room and only started the exploration when night falls at about 3pm. Nevertheless, we made in to the Old Town and it’s pretty quiet as not what I’ve expected. Is it because it’s night time?
Nevermind, we still walked around and went in to a Polish restaurant – Zapiecek to try some Polish food. We kept on seeing the name of ‘Zapiecek’ in the Old Town and there’s like a few outlets of it. No idea what Polish food was like and we were just tempted by an old Polish lady who keep on waving at us. She successfully lured us into the restaurant. Luckily, there’s English menu, it’s not surprise that their restaurant do not have an English menu because tourist does not frequent the place. Polish food is about dumpling, cheese, dumpling and cheese! In fact, most of the Eastern European food are about dumpling! Don’t mistaken their dumpling with Chinese dumpling, they are totally different thing. There’s another vegetable dish that we ordered taste almost like a Hainaese Bangkuang-Char, except it’s more sourish. Overall, a thumbs up for this meal as it’s something very new and I kinda like it.
Later then, we just navigate around freely to find the exit because we were lost in the Old Town! HAHA. Not that bad after all as the town is quite small and we ended taking a tram back to our hostel place. Reluctant to go back to hostel as there’s no wifi (never know that there’s hostel that doesn’t offers free wifi! – Jump Inn Warsaw), and we headed to McDonald’s for supper and wifi. Well, finally I can have McDonald’s that is cheaper than the UK. Chicken Box rocks.
