krakowska is thicker then regular kielbasa and is straight. it kind of looks like ham on the inside.. it's delish for sure.

not sure what maybe specifically related to Krakow but there is a huge variety in polish food, that's kind of why i asked what tickles you.

if you've never had crapes i'd recommend those.. same with potato pankaces.. tripe soup.. hunter stew.. kopytka are something a little different too.. and on and on.. :)

cool, nice pics.. you'd be surprised how many "polish towns" there are here in the USA. i seem to run into them when least expected. same with polish people.. i even managed to run into a couple on Isle Royale NP, the least visited park in the country. lol

the ones ive seen really didnt answer the question, ive seen that they are passed down through blood. my great great grandparents were born in Krakow, they came to the states at the age of 15, and i dont believe they were naturalized or anything

is $1.20 US a good price for 1/4 lb of Krakowska ?
