Departure Time

10:00 AM
Bring your appetite and be prepared for noon pickup at your Warsaw accommodation. Meet your foodie guide and climb aboard a classic, Communist-era minibus that will whisk you around the capital, covering much more distance and diversity than a walking tour.

Learn about Polish culture through its cuisine as you make your way through a hand-picked selection of the city's best and most authentic eateries. Sample fresh local produce at a farmer’s market, and then delve into heartier delights like kiełbasa (sausage), traditional Polish soup, bigos (meat and cabbage stew), and two kinds of stuffed pierogi (dumplings).

If you have a taste for salty pickled products, you might like ogórki kiszone (pickled cucumbers). Sink your teeth into some of Warsaw’s best baked goods like market-fresh bread and delicious pączki (donuts) from a pastry shop, and wash it down with a cup of coffee. Finally, no Polish food tour would be complete without a shot of strong, refreshing vodka.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Krochmalna
The first stop will be a little pastry shop located in an old tenement house where you will be served a Polish traditional donut, called pączek [‘pounchek]. If Homer Simpson was a real person he would've dropped an American doughnut in favour of a Polish one because it's 4oz piece of heaven filled with yummy jelly or jam. Mmmm, doughnuts... Roughly 400 calories each!
Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Hala Mirowska
Hala Mirowska is a traditional market, packed with stalls and worth visiting for the best food that can't be found in popular supermarkets. You will taste Polish specialities like Polish sausage, pickled cucumbers and cabbage, smoked fish, lovely Polish bread and a traditional soft drink. This list may vary day to day, since products availability may change due to the season. You will have to squeeze with the locals and wait in lines to get your bits. That is why our tour is unique – it takes you to the places where no other tour agency would take you to.
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Old Town
Next stop will be at a local restaurant which serves delicious Polish soups – you have to try one called żurek [zhurek]. It is made according to one of the oldest recipes known in Poland. Second sup (daily choice), will be served too. The second delicacy at Warsaw Old Town is a mug of mead - the oldest alcohol made in this part of Europe.
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Praga Polnoc
While visiting our country there is at least one more must-eat thing: Polish dumplings. To get the best pierogi in Warsaw one has to drive across the Vistula river and experience Praga district. Our guide will take you to the local brasserie where you will taste, in our opinion, the best dumplings in the city.
Duration: 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Brzeska
For decades Brzeska street was not a friendly place, gently speaking. It became famous for the illegal production of alcohol and all kinds of businesses related to the black market. Today the transformation of the street is progressing, new apartment buildings are under construction, but you can still find the best vodka in the city! Nowadays it is legal, off course.

My fiancé and I went on this food tour and it was amazing. Mark was a wonderful guide who gave us such an authentic Polish experience. He was well-versed in the history of the area. We went to so many places on our vacation and out of everything we did my fiancé said this was his favorite thing.

We have done a number of food tours in various countries around the world and this was by far the best. We were picked up from our hotel and driven around in a little minibus from the Cold War era which was an added bonus. Our guide owned the tour business and nothing was too much trouble for him. He spent far longer with us than the tour indicated and overall this tour is a must to do in Warsaw.

We took this tour on our first full day in Warsaw and it was a perfect way to get familiar with the city. Our guide Mark took us to several shops restaurants and the local market and also gave us a lot of history and information on Warsaw. I wish I could have eaten more but was stuffed full! I highly recommend this tour!
