On the heavier side but nevertheless more digestable

As a general statement the food in Poland is absolutely fantastic. For one, even though some of the foods would fall into the “heavy food” category, you’re less likely to have that bloated feeling after a meal. This had me wondering when I first moved to Poland. I soon realised that the food ingrediants here are simply more natural than what I had been used to in the U.S. It’s simply more metabolism friendly. You can be expecting a reduced intake of additives i.e. enhancers, stabilizers, thickeners, emulsifiers and the like. You may find that you can pork out a bit and leave one belt buckle hole trimmer. πŸ—πŸ₯”πŸ…

Folks! Dishes like pierogi, golombki, bigos and kielbasa are no doubt a treat, but there is just so much more to Polish cuisine than these much touted dishes. I strongly urge you to endulge in some of the absolutely fenominal dishes of, for lack of a better expression, “higher-end” Polish cuisine. I’m talking about things like duck, goose, chicken, turkey, cod, salmon, pearch, pike, trout, rabbit, spare ribs, veal, lamb, beef, venison, wild boar etc. etc. etc. For vegetable prone folk there are plenty of options here too. No doubt, eating out at places that serve this type of food will cost you a bit more. But you will likely find that it is still relatively affordable compared to what you are used to. πŸ†πŸ₯”πŸŒΆπŸ…

For those addicted to any particular cuisine. In the bigger cities, particularly, you will have no trouble finding respectable Chinese, Thai, Italian, Turkish, Georgian, Indian etc. etc. 🍀🌢πŸ₯‘
