Lublin's Jewish heritage is a tangeable part of the old town experience, and you'll find no shortage of symbolism and commemoration for the community that once thrived here. But what about the food? The music? Fortunately, both of these are alive and well at Mandragora on the main square, which is easily identified by the hebrew-esque typeset of the sign. A comparatively simple affair, compared to many of its competitors on the block, there is a nice cozy vibe in this two-level converted townhouse, complete with ornamentation and a menorah candelabra or two. The menu features numerous Ashkenazi kosher dishes that make good use of duck, liver and goose, three meats of which they are particularly famous for. Many other dishes, such as variations on pierogi and sour cabbage, are notable crossovers with numerous Polish staples - such was the integration of the Jewish community's presence in this region for many centuries! There are also some other features from Israeli and middle-eastern cuisine, such as falafel, hummus and za'atar, which demonstrate just how wide the menu's range is! The Jewish cultural experience is made whole on Fridays when the restaurant's PA is switched over to a roster of bands performing live music!
