"Nostalgia" - Polish shop in Glasgow


Lettuce 1 | 23  
23 Dec 2007 /  #1
So I'm out and about in Glasgow and I notice there's a shop called 'nostalgia' which claims to sell all things Polish... I looked in and it looked like mostly vodka and stuff - but isnt all vodka the same, generally speaking? If not, perhaps someone can recommend a brand of Polish vodka to me that you dont usually get in the UK!

Also, I was just wondering, what are the things Polish people living in the UK would normally go to a Polish shop for, rather than just getting them out of Tescos or something?

I must learn one is not to dilute the other. Prefer vodka, but whisky when I get bored of it.

Whyte & Mackay. Gin & tonic. Beer.

Prefer vodka

Scots are strange folks. Perhaps we have more in common than we think.

There's one in Edinburgh too. I've never been in it though. Perhaps it's time I paid it a visit as I pass it every day! I have looked in though the window and they sell more than drink, plus they have a little cafe.

Yes it really is a shelf! Lets campaign for an aisle! :D

You have to try some Zubrowka,it has a blade of buffulo grass in it and a nice smooth taste,also try some of the flavoured vodkas,Wybrowa pepper flavour is spot on,dont forget some ogorki to go with it, I throw them out of my burgers but munch a jar full in a good drinking sesh :) Also tyr adding a dash of apple juice to any plain vodka,if you feel you have to mellow it down a bit.

Also, I was just wondering, what are the things Polish people living in the UK would normally go to a Polish shop for, rather than just getting them out of Tescos or something?

Ive never seen perogi (russian dumplings) in tesco's but there is always a que of about ten people laden with them when Im in my local Polish shop:)

They are dumplings filled with mushrooms+cabbage, meat or cheese/potatoes mashed. U have z grzybami/kapustą, z mięsem or ruskie. Very soft and tasty, good winter food
