Help?? Where should I eat in Krakow Poland??
Krakow Poland had hundreds of restaurants, more than imagined, they even have Sushi, Pizza, Chinese, but it was difficult to find Polish restaurants in the Market Square as described. We did have to dine in some tourist places based on the itinerary of the conference, all of the food was very good.
Dinner at the Restaurant at Wawel Castle Hill
Dinner underground at the Wieliczka Salt Mine
Underground dining at Da Pietro was enjoyable - thank you for the recommendation.
The pierogies we found were amazing - the dough was like nothing you find here in the states but again, traveled outside of the main tourist area across the Visula River by the hotel to find these gems - I wrote down the name of the place but I cannot find anything on the Internet about this place..
Some Quick Bites and Street Food To Try:
Strawberry Sandwich - Cream Cheese and Strawberries on sweet bread
Pink Filled Pierogi - Potato Beet Filling YUMMY
Nalesniki - Polish Crepe
Zapiekanka - Mushroom and Cheese on a Baquette
Overall enjoyed experiencing the culture and history of this city.
There are some more recent threads floating around about Krakow. This one is old and has almost no info. You say you wrote down the name of the place...... can you tell us?
The place at the Cloth Hall has Polish food. Good stuff if you need a convenient fix but nothing too special.
Yeah, was pretty new to Chowhound when I was looking for insight on our trip to Krakow.
Simply updated this particular post to say thank you to Chowhound, Grampart for helping and providing suggestions.
The name from the notes is Domowe, a tiny little hut, one story building.
Not a restaurant, simply take away, enjoyed prepared with local hosts of the conference. DELICIOUS.
We enjoyed sweet cheese and blueberry.
The detail on the dough edges were just beautiful as well.
Hope this helps.
Although our last trip to Krakow was in the summer of 2001, these restaurants are still listed and were VERY good.....and inexpensive. All are within walking distance in the Market Square. The two times we went for Polish "peasant" food, we traveled out of the city.

re: Jon Tseng
I was in Krakow about three years ago, and had a fabulous dinner at Klezmerhuis in the Kaziemierz (Jewish quarter) section of the city. The goose was sublime. A very pretty restaurant with antiques. I hope it is still as wonderful as it was that night. Also, many vodka choices.
