Top 5 Most Popular Street Food
#1 BBQ Sausages from Blue Nysa
Organic sausage grilled over the open fire sounds like a great meal no matter if you get hungry in the evening before or after a night out. As a side you can get a white bread roll and old style orangeade from the glass bottle. Yummy? Interesting fact is that they have been operation for decades.
#2 Zapiekanka Krakowska
That’s an open-face sandwich made of half of a baguette or other long roll of bread, topped with sautéed white mushrooms, cheese and sometimes other ingredients, and toasted until the cheese melts. Served hot with ketchup, it is a popular street food in Poland. With its origin dating back to the 1970s, the zapiekanka is associated with the austere times of Poland’s Communist regime, but it has enjoyed renewed demand in the 21st century, which has also brought a wider range of varieties and quality.
#3 Maczanka Po Krakowsku – Pulled Pork Giant Sandwich
You probably wonder what is the thing? The answer is simple: it is an Old-Krakow dish, which consists of an aromatic loin or pork neck, caraway sauce and bread rolls. Maczanka was already known in the sixteenth century and reportedly was the favorite snack of Krakow cabbies. I also heard that some call it the forerunner of a hamburger, but for me it has a much clearer flavor. In addition, more time is needed to prepare this dish, which makes the sherb fuller aroma, is more juicy and melts in the mouth!

Belgian fries are prepared from Belgian potatoes, fried in Belgian oil at two different temperatures, to be crispy on the outside, and in the middle fluffy and delicate – it really is! In addition, mayonnaise, as well as all sauces are made by themselves, prepared from natural ingredients.
