I tried to keep myself from showing you pictures of Italian food from Poland, but I can’t resist this perfectly round, ripe little tomato on my fiancé’s carbonara at Trattoria Adamo in Zakopane. I had a pizza with CORN on it here. One of the coolest things about being in this region was that my fiancé and his family could tell from the way people here talked that they were from the mountains. It’s like being in NYC and talking to someone with a southern accent.
Maybe the last one from the top of Kasprowy Wierch in Zakopane, Poland, but I’m not making any promises.
More from the top of Kasprowy Wierch in Zakopane, Poland.
While we were in Zakopane for the day, we took a cable car up to Kasprowy Wierch, a famous skiing mountain in Poland that also happens to be a lovely lookout point on a late summer day. The top is so close to Slovakia that while we were up there, my fiancé got a text from his cellphone provider telling us we’d crossed over into a new country. We felt like real world travelers at that moment.
In Zakopane, we ate lunch outside on the patio at Karczma Bacówka along Krupówki, the famous promenade in the center of town. We had bacon-wrapped dates, sauerkraut soup, pierogies, and these placki ziemniaczane (potato pancakes) covered in goulash and cheese.
