We had lunch at Czarna Kaczka in Kraków’s Old Town on my fiancé’s parents’ recommendation, so you know it’s good traditional Polish food at a reasonable price. I got one of my favorite Polish dishes of all time, bigos, which is sometimes called the Polish national dish. Every Polish cook has her own recipe, but it’s basically sauerkraut cooked with mushrooms, forest fruits, red wine, rich spices, and then any and all meat you can find in the house. My fiancé got a half-duck, and I also had one of those classic European iced coffees where they just drop a scoop of ice cream into coffee to cool it down, god bless them.
