I remember buying a raincoat for 1800zl in 196x na Chmielnej. My first salary after graduation from WUT was 1500 zl.
1500-1800=GFO so I left.

As far as pizza...There is a simple rule to follow...If it's delicious, don't eat it. What's good for you is barely passable.

Polish pizza

There is no such dish as Polish pizza. Each bar,. pizzeria or outlet has their own style and recipe for making it. I have liked 98% pizzas which I have eaten in Poland - in cities, in the mountains and at the seaside.

The second-best Polish food...

That's what I had there...First, tatar, then flaki...If I ever go back to Poland it will be for those two at the same restaurant.

There's zapiekanka, worthy of note and a Polish creation.

Each bar,. pizzeria or outlet has their own style and recipe for making

And 90% of them are frankly a bit crap.

Of course it is. I remember from my student days in the 80s pizzas made on thick yeast dough in Poland. It wasn't until later that I found out that no one in the world uses yeast dough for pizza.

It is an option which you can get on demand for extra charge. The basic option is ALWAYS thin base. Ha.

in the 80s

I've had that in Italy, home of the pizza.

In Poland, it's mostly made with soda though I'd prefer it with yeast.

Yes,I like its taste.There is a new place opened on Widok across KFC/Burger King with some Polish name like"Communist Pizza"or something in Polish.They only sell diff zapiekanka.I liked it esp the crusty bread.

LOL the same street where you dress up in heels to go to that bar.

I know the one, but haven't been for several years. A nice place to go to after beer. As I recall, it has old PRL newspapers as part of the decor. Quite good. There's also a nice one on Chmielna although I prefer the one on Widok.

Yup,thats it.I thought was a year old or so,guess never paid attention.Its crowded now,
Which one is on Chemilna?Only ones I know are cpl selling individual slices.I hated that Belgium fries place but my son liked it.LOL fries with mayo.

Which one is on Chemilna

On the north side, going towards Nowy Swiat. It may have closed now. The zapiekanki had a four seasons theme.

fries with mayo

Not for me, unless I'm visiting Belgium where I've not been for ages anyway. Malt vinegar and salt is good.

Reminds me of that awful frozen Findus French Bread Pizza from the 80's. Not that I'm a huge fan of pizza. Best I've tried was in Naples.

Best I've tried was in Naples.

I've worked (twice over the years) for an Italian firm where most of the staff were Sicilian or Calabrian. The pizza in the canteen (these were 24/7 on site or at sea jobs) was so nice I nearly went weak at the knees every time they had it in the menu. Thing was, they only had it twice a week at the recommendation of the company/ship's doctor since many of the staff were male and of the heart attack age.

They also had unlimited help yourself gelato. One of the staff was from a family with a chain of gelato shops in (I think) Sicily. I went up two trouser sizes working there. The it's,Ian's often made an espresso and put a huge dollop of ice cream in. Works well.

Zapiekanka like it used to be in Warsaw and still is in a lot of places is just like Findus French Bread Pizza only worse, with swirls of ketchup, bottled mayo and limp gherkin slices. A good one is really good though and some of the fancy ones like Zapiexy mentioned above are pretty good. Better bread, jalapeños, a few fancy things.

I saw a recipe today for a Spanish mini pizza, sort of between zapiekanka and pissaladière. I'll try it in the week.

Maybe worth having a recipe thread. Some Polish recipes (adapted where necessary to ingredients overseas) and non-Polish dishes that can either be adapted for ingredients here or which would suit Polish tastes. It's sometimes a surprise which dishes from abroad go down well here and which ones don't.

Best pizza I've ever had was in a hotel restaurant in Lanzarote... they had a dedicated pizza station that turned out small hand made pizzas (12 or so inches across) without tons of topping and they were completely addictive. The crust was amazing and the few toppings really complimented each other. My favorite had blue cheese which works remarkably well on pizza...

Bak in my student days a mainstay was a deep dish by the slice place that I went to at least once a week... their star was the.... broccoli slice... it sounds awful but it was really great. Two slices with a side of garlic rolls was heaven.

so nice I nearly went weak at the knees every time they had it in the menu.

Must admit that the pizza in Naples was so good I had slices every day. It's not even something I would normally eat either! There seemed to be no end of very basic looking places with just a few stools and a long bar to sit at. Street food type places that had queues of people lining up for pizza slices. No-one spoke English so I would just point at a different pizza every day. Had to be done :) I also overloaded on the gelato too.

swirls of ketchup, bottled mayo and limp gherkin slices.

It's this that I can't stand. I don't even eat ketchup or bottled mayo at home. I tried zapiekanka once and that was enough. I would always go for traditional Polish food in Poland. I tried an Indian place in Gdansk once and it was truly awful, really bland food. I could've murdered a good curry at the time too :(

Maybe worth having a recipe thread.

Go for it.

There is a place behind Chemilna called "Maka i woda" there coal fired pizza use to be good but lately it sux.

an Indian place in Gdansk

There is no good restaurant with orignal Indian food in Poland,order 3 dishes and 2 will have same curry sauce.But lately I found 2 places next to each other called "Chaiwala" & "delhi 6" on Jana Pawla 2,they dont have traditional Indian food but street food was really good.Mostly I see Indians there as not many non Indians know that food,really good.I think its a start of the real Indian food in Warsaw.Someone told me there are over 400 Indian restaurants in Warsaw all fooling Polaks lol.

So where can you eat the best pizza in Poland?

According to the Italian annual ranking "50 Top Pizza" which lists best pizzerias in Europe (besides Italy, which has separate listings) there are three such places in Poland in 2023:

podroze.onet.pl/aktualnosci/wybrali-najlepsze-pizzerie-na-swiecie-trzy-sa-w-polsce/wfxkcp3

"Ostro" in Gdańsk (number 34 on the list)

"Ciao a Tutti" in Warsaw (number 38 on the list)

"Zielona Górka" in Pabianice (number 46 on the list), which is among few pizzerias in Poland serving Neapolitan pizzas that has "Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana" certificate.

About the "50 Top Pizza" 2023 in English:

What about you, guys? Where have you eaten the best pizza in Poland (or what places can you recommend in your city that serve the best pizza??)? :)
