Food Like Granny Makes It - Guaranteed!

Dearest friends,

Last Saturday, besides the meeting with our friends, we wanted to go to the Pierogi Festival (that lasted the entire weekend and was in the Small Square) but it was way too crowdy and the lines to the pierogi stands were just endless... so we went to the next best thing when it comes to traditional food/meals is "Restauracja Kuchnia u Babci Maliny" which in rough translation would mean "Restaurant at Grandma's Kitchen Raspberries".


You can find them on the internet on their own SITE or FB Page :) Unfortunately you cannot take over and/or order from home so the only option is to go to one of the Babcia Malina locations and enjoy the athmosphere  :) And I must tell you it is unique!!! :)

In Krakow you can find them either on ul. Sławkowska 17 or on ul. Szpitalna 38 :)
Phone:12 422 76 01
Hours:
Monday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Tuesday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Wednesday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Thursday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Friday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Saturday12:00–9:00 pm
Sunday12:00–9:00 pm


It is a perfect place to take your friends (foreign people - not polish) eating ;) You can call them between the hours listed above and book a place or just drop by and see if you have any luck in finding a seat available. The place is quite popular amongst the locals and they have very good food: fresh and "homemade" and it really tastes awesome, just like a Polish Granny would do it ;)


The Restaurant that we went for is located on Szpitalna and it is my personal fav. You have 3 floors: at the main level you have the self service and you have benches where you can sit after you retrieve your food (you will get a number of order and then they will call for the number and you need to come pick the food); on the +1 level you can find more sitting space with benches and tables (very rustic and mountaineer type of place). But! If you go downstairs you have the restaurant where you have the waiters/waitresses dressed in black and white at your service. From time to time there is also someone playing the piano ;)


 I had the awesome Zurek soup (traditional cream soup with white sausage and potatoe and boiled eggs) and some pierogi (dumplings) with meat :) Cozi had just the 3 types of pierogi dish and my fiancee had barszcz z krokietem (beetroot soup with some kind of meat thingies...) and some sznitzel with potatoes. We all had some awesome and cold beer ;)


But we had no dessert as we ended up being very full :) But I do recommend you would try the pancakes ;) or the apple tart with icecream ;)



Here you can see the awesome bowl of Zurek :)


And here you can see my pierogi plate ;)

P.S. They accept cash/credit card/American Express ;)
