What to Eat in Krakow

While not known as a dining mecca, Kraków has made large strides in recent years. The dining scene has evolved with the surge of tourism that Kraków has enjoyed over the last decade. The city features a nice blend of affordable and fine dining establishments, and the Old Town is virtually overflowing with eateries of every type. For some of Kraków's best local fare – like zurek (a sour rye soup made with sausage and potatoes that's commonly served in a bread bowl) and pierogies (potato-filled dumplings) – visit Starka Restaurant & Vodkas and Przystanek Pierogarnia. Recent travelers also recommend Taste of India for Indian dishes, Nago Sushi & Sake for sushi rolls and Bianca Restauracja for Italian cuisine.

If you're craving authentic Polish bites on the go, try some of Kraków's street fare. Sold at food trucks and curbside vendors throughout the city, local street fare is hearty yet affordable. Must-try items include zapiekanka (a baguette half loaded with mushrooms and cheese that's often garnished with ketchup, chives or fried onions), obwarzanek (thin bagels generally topped with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt or cheese) and kielbasi (grilled sausages served with a roll or on a bun with mustard).
