What is interesting polish national dishes (PND) that most of poles think about when asked this question, are not really originally from poland. So for the answer you must look in the north east of our country. I personally don't know the answer, but i know that in the present you can call PND many things: bigos, pierogi are at the top of the list. But there are much, much more, depends on in which region of Poland you will ask.

those three and a few i can't think of right now are the PND.

there is no single dish that can be anybody's national dish.. if you ask the english, you'll get variety too..

More traditional (around Christmas) than national...I'd say.

BTW, Carp = crap (sorry)

I like to eat fish, but when it comes to the christmas carp... Well, I stick to the sea fishes, hate that smell of carp...

LOL - a friend of mine, Gosia (Polish btw...) doesn't do the Carp thing either, on account of her childhood memories of her mum getting live carp, getting to know them as, er pets, and then having to eat them at christmas time....

Bigos is sort of the "official" national dish, but people don't eat it very often, maybe a couple of times a year on average.

"Kotlet schabowy" a breaded and pan-fried pork chop is more the real national dish in that people eat it a lot more often.

What does it even mean "national dish?" Something the Poles invented? Something they/we eat most often or something we most vigorously celebrate? Even with that said there will never be one right answer. I think all the above have provided a vast array of Poles think of their own food.

Btw, it's great!
I'm hungry :(

In some parts of this country crayfish was popular. It is not national dish.

Yeah, maybe people may have been put off by the name, rak. It means cancer too as many will know.

It's a delicacy.

Poland could do with some creative ideas with sausages. U know, we have bangers n'mash. The Poles have such a range of sausages, don't just grill them in oil, use their versatility!!

We used to go down to the river and get these for snack . There are not many to be found anymore. what about other sea food such as muscles and oysters in Poland?
Seanus 15 | 19,706

They are both fairly common. U can buy mussels in thousand islands dressing and other sauces. Oysters are also available

Off limits sunshine. Nah, just kidding, it isn't as plentiful as in Scotland or NZ but u can get some prime cuts.

Lamb curry is nice but I just can't think of my poor kind being killed
