Reviewed by FoodTourFinder!
See our review below in the Comments section

When you think about Polish cuisine, there is one thing that immediately pops up in your mind and that is definately “pierogi.” You come to Warsaw and (un)suprisingly you see that all English-speaking places offer them. Deep in your heart you know that there must be something more. If you want to discover real Polish cuisine, join Eat Warsaw tour.

The food tour gives you an opportunity to taste good Polish dishes and hear the stories behind them. You will learn why Poles complain about the quality of bread, why they somethimes long for food produced in the 70’s, why you can’t trust the invitation “for a cup of coffee.” You will visit 5 establishments, so be prepared for a full meal (and a dessert, of course). There will be also plenty of walking, so a pair of comfortable shoes would be a better option.

The tour is a friendly walk around the city with a Warsaw foodie, so think about is as discovering new city with a friend.

    FOOD TOUR FINDER’S REVIEW:

    Wear good walking shoes and come REALLY hungry. This tour is a heaping helping of classic Polish hospitality, rivaled in quantity only by the Joo Chiat food tour in Singapore.

    But it’s quality as well as quantity. Guide Magda Gendźwiłłowie is an award-winning food blogger who will educate you about regional Polish cuisine, and take you through different classic tastes and techniques (fermentation and curing, for example). Her knowledge and passion for food is really impressive.

    The tour includes seated dining at four different establishments, with multiple items tasted at each stop. There’s also a pause for sweet rolls before exploring a hidden rooftop garden with a great view of the river and city.

    We tasted two soups, bread with traditional pork spread, cured meats and cheeses, vodka with several food accompanyments, topped off by a family-style meal of pork chops and several side-dishes. But wait! There was also coffee and cake. At my count, 24 items tasted in total!

    Magda also explained customs, like saint’s-day celebrations and other food-related cultural insights.

    My guess is that the tour covers a good couple of miles, but because nearly all the stops are at restaurants, you’re not on your feet constantly. You’ll make stops on and near the Royal Way, jog over near the river and end up in Old Town.

    I highly recommend this tour – and you’d be particularly wise to do it at the beginning of a visit to Warsaw, so you can revisit some of the stops and take advantage of Magda’s other recommendations.
