Yesterday, for the very first time in my life, I tasted the Polish kebab... mmmhhhh.
In Poland the kebab bars are spread mostly in majors cities, but still considered one of the most, if not the most popular fast foods for the young people. A very Polish specialty is a fresh cabbage salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and other vegetables, added to the meat in a sandwich. A basic version costs 6zl (€1.5) and includes pita or thick bread, meat with onion, mentioned salad and choice of sauces. It can be super sized and/or served with extra cheese. Sandwiches are available with hot, medium or mild sauces made of house special ingredients. Kebab shops serve also complete meals, vegetarian dishes and airan. Undoubtedly
is the capital of Polish kebab, with shops run by Turkish emigrants, and serving Arab specialties and hookah pipes apart from the sandwiches. As they run 24/7 - they are often visited by partying youth and policemen... Warsaw
