There is no thing like eat a dinner exactly same as in home when you are far away. There`s also no thing like taste traditional or just casual domestic polish food so that`s a good offer for foreigners to try flavours of Poland. I have chosen two bars which serves best home dinner in city centre. Two bars with similarly offer but quite different. These are rather popular places so if one of them is full, the second one is only 70 meters away just around the corner.
Bar Miś (Teddy Bear)
Adress: Kuźnicza 48
If you would like to try casual polish delicious pork chop with potatoes, coleslaw and almost perfect tomato soup you should go to Miś Bar. Abundant offer includes among others:
– tomato soup with pasta or rice
– barley soup
– mushroom soup with pasta
– sorrel soup with egg
– dumplings (!) with potato and cottage cheese stuffing
– various dumplings with no translation to English called pierogi, kopytka, kluski, knedle
– apple drop scones
– bunch of salads
– bean with carrot
– fried beetroot
– cucumber salad
– potaotes, buckwheat or rice
Fresh meat dishes:
– pork chop
– meat patty
– poultry chop
– chicken filet
– beef stew
– meat balls with muschroom sauce
And many others.
First of all, the best of all is price. You need to pay much lower than you expect. Soups are about 1,10 to 1,70zł (~0,3 EUR). Full dish includes for example soup, potatoes, some dumplings, chicken filer and salad costs 13zł (~3 EUR). And trust me, the servings are big. It`s propably no opportunity to leave local being hungry.
As a result, familar atmosphere, low prices and really tasty domestic food causes for many clients that Bar Miś is their beloved.

Second option is Bar Misz-Masz. The one important thing what differs these two bars is that Misz-Masz is self-service. You`re bring the plate and puts what you want on it, then you need to weigh your plate and pay 3zł (0,7 EUR) per 100 grams, so that means full 0,5kg dinner costs you 15zł (3,5 EUR). Ain`t no cheaper places like these two. Bar Misz-Masz offers one soup of a day and also serves good Polish food but not only. Menu is similar to Miś but extended with dishes like:
– spicy chicken
– chcicken in sweet and sour sauce
– poultry shoarma
Dishes are as good as in Bar Miś. Price is really low and you are able to take as much food as you want. Student have an extra 10% discount any time and even more, everybody pays half of price in last 30 minutes nearly closing the local.
