Dining in Poland offered a few local dishes that we found interesting.
We found one restaurant that specialized in a popular dumpling-like dish called pierogi. There are many different varieties of pierogi, depending on the filling placed inside the pocket created by the dough.
For dinner we had savory dumplings filled with different meats and vegetables. For dessert, blueberry and strawberry pierogi covered with a vanilla sauce.
One rather fancy restaurant served the butter all wrapped up in small squares of wax paper that made the butter look like bits of candy laid out on the plate.
Our guide stopped at a roadside stand one afternoon to show us another delicacy: pork lard. Our driver and guide had some spread on slices of bread, but somehow, it did not look all that appetizing to us.
