the best french fries in Poland

12 June, 2012

Earlier this semester, as I was walking from the metro while on my way home from school, I noticed a throng of people gathered on a street corner.  I thought it was odd for so many people to be standing around there, but put it out of my mind as I continued home.

A few days later, The Husband came home from work with some delicious french fries carried in a paper cone.  He too had seen a crowd of people, investigated further, and in doing so, found the best french fries in Poland.

the perfect mix of salty and greasy – crisp on the outside, soft in the center

They’re located just a few streets from our apartment, and they sell a small order of fries for 5 zł (or $1.50), a large order of fries for 8 zł ($2.40), and various sauces for 1 zl ( $0. 30) for a small container.  They also have coffee, beer, and soda available.  The sauces on offer change daily, and they’ve all been fairly tasty, especially the wasabi mayo.

Belgian-style fries

This fry shop is also how I learned the Polish word for window, okienko (also, okno –  which is oddly similar to the Polish word for eye, oko.  What was that adage about eyes being windows to something?)
