What Polish foods and brands do you miss when you go to other countries?

However you got the idea that eel pie exists is beyond me. It doesn't. Nor does the firm you cited deliver eel pie. Can't deliver what doesn't exist.

The firm you linked to is not a traditional pie and mash shop, for one. It's a startup by some woman from Felixstowe.

They do deliver jellied eel, MEAT pies and mashed potatoes by special (refrigerated) culinary courier fresh to your door on certain days of the week, but they don't ship them by mail.

Your reading comprehension could do with some work.

Evidently many things are beyond you. I've eaten Eel Pie. It is a traditional dish. And provided a link to a recipe; one of many.

Nor does the firm you cited deliver eel pie

Looks like you didn't read much of the link. They make and sell Eel Pies. £7.95 each...

They do deliver jellied eel... don't ship them by mail....not a traditional pie and mash shop

Looks like you didn't (or are pretending not to) notice that there are two links. One is to a company on the coast that deliver Eel Pies. The other is to a very traditional (perhaps the best known) London Pie and Mash Shop. They sell jellied eels (you falsely claimed this was impossible) and stewed eels by mail order (no ships involved!) to any UK post code.

I'm happy to link to any number of companies that do much the same, however the thread is about Polish foods rather than your attempts to argue about another countries traditional cuisine (of which your knowledge is self-evidently lacking).

Your reading comprehension is non-existent.

ozory in a stołówka

Same here; I can't abide that either. Reminded me of pressed tongue sandwiches, a bad childhood memory.

I was once served some barszcz biały with small tube like bits of offal in it. I forget what they were, however I'll never knowingly eat them again. About eating brain, I've had brain curry (in Bradford) and wasn't impressed, though that was maybe more about the appearance than the taste, which was bland.

The same with salcesonik here in PL; probably an acquired taste...

ozory ... I bit a piece and it was like biting your own tongue on novocaine (or someone else's tongue) I almost barfed

Then it means sb didn`t cook them properly. I have them a few times a year - when boiled long enough, they are delicate and soft like golonka. I either have them for big dinners or slice onto a sandwich. The tissue in them is regular meat, just take a look:

It was the.... shape more than anything. As I said the taste was fine, but I really have to chop it up into very small pieces (no matter how tender) to enjoy it.

I can`t believe sb served whole tongues in the canteen. It is not the Polish way of cooking them. Normally, they look like thick steaks on the plate.
