Polish Sushi

Doesn't look much different than sushi in other countries, does it?

Polish Donuts?
A famous donut in Warsaw. It was pretty good, although us Canadians consider ourselves the world standard in donut making, so I don't want to give this one too much praise.

Cili Kaimas
Herring Filets and Roast Potatoes

Baked Pie Topped with a Sour Cream/Ham Sauce

Washed Down with a Pint of Weissbier

Cili Kaimas probably the place to go for traditional Lithuanian cuisine. It does have a few restaurants in Vilnius (and probably in other cities), so if you're concerned with the "chain" aspect I can understand. I normally am, too, but this place seems to buck many of the traditional chain restaurant problems.

For one, the menu is all traditional Lithuanian food. It doesn't try to pretend by giving you small servings, either. You will leave the place chock full of food. There is also a great ambience. The restaurant I was in was built around a giant tree. Brilliant.

There is also a Nobleman's menu. This is supposedly the gourmet menu (and has the price tag to corroborate that claim). In it you can find hunters' delicacies and other fine dining.

Naturally, I opted for the traditional menu. I'm glad I did, too.

Nyonya Chendol @ Jonker Street, Melaka

We tried Nyonya Chendol, Mango Chendol, Coconut Chendol....all with a whole lot of Gula Melaka poured over.

I was surfing around and found the website of Rose : where she shares her recipes for all types of local (Malaysian/Singaporean) dishes and dessserts.

Cabbage Rolls
I think there has been a post about a friend of mine making these things. However, this is the real deal made in Poland. It's cabbage stuffed with rice, ground pork/beef, and spices.

Meat Poetry on Display in Krakow
Shashlik (Kebab), Kielbasa (Sausage), Goloncka (Pork Knuckle), et al.

Meat, Potatoes, and Vegetables

Roast Pig

Pork Shashlik

Who knew Krakow would have such revolutionary meat poetry? There were multiple stands with a diverse array of pork products. I decided on the pork shashlik and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The only problem was the frigid cold. My hands were numb after eating.
