Polish Snacks & Shots

share
A very Polish phenomenon that has swept the country in recent years is the 24-hour snack and shot bar. Known locally as 'Zakąski Przekąski' (literally 'Appetisers & Snacks'), or 'Polish Tapas' as it's been dubbed by some, these trendy, formulaic budget bars cash in on communist nostalgia and the appeal of low prices by offering a small selection of simple, local appetisers (typically served cold) for about 8zł each, with drinks typically fixed at 4zł. Familiar as the bar food of the lean communist years, the menu reads like a list of correct answers to the Jeopardy question 'Foods that follow vodka' and typically includes śledz (pickled herring in oil), galaretka (pig trotters in jelly), kiełbasa (sausage), pierogi, pickles and tartare. Zakąski Przekąski bars offer budget food and drink late night and are a great place to meet the city's strangest characters. We list the best here.
