Feeling like a vegetarian meal? You have to visit Glonojad in Cracow! Posted by Kasia on Nov 25, 2020 in Culture
Are you vegetarian, vegan, or possibly not a big fan of meat? I’m sure you find yourself researching vegetarian and vegan friendly restaurants near the place of your destination.
I have to say that you will be pleasantly surprised at the number of vegetarian and vegan friendly restaurants in Poland. Not only that, you can also easily find 100% Vegan restaurants at the bigger cities and main tourist destinations as well!
I’m not a vegetarian (I have to admit: I like the meat), but some of my friends in Poland are and I often ask them for opinions about new restaurants in Poland.
More and more people are learning about animal rights and are making the switch and virtually overnight vegan restaurants have been popping up everywhere in Poland! And menus are usually amazing, with a lot of dishes to choose from.
You can try vegan pierogi with potato, lentil or spinach, etc. You can also find sandwiches, soups, cold-pressed juices, salads, food bowls, burgers, vegan sushi and amazing array of desserts including some very unique ice-cream flavors. Typically menu changes based on what is currently in season. Each place is different and staff is very well informed about vegan products.
Some of the restaurants sell vegan shoes, belts and other accessories, t-shirts with different vegan quotes as well.
Recently I heard of a nice, budget friendly vegetarian bar in Kraków: Glonojad (literally translates to “algae eater”) Wegetariański Bar.
All the dishes are vegetarian and those that are vegan are clearly marked. This place has some great reviews and I hear that food is really delicious.
Here are few helpful words, just in case you have to explain your vegan food preference at the Polish restaurants:
I am a vegan – Jestem weganinem
I don’t eat… – Nie jem…
milk – mleko
eggs – jajka
cheese – ser
whey – serwatka
cream – śmietana
honey – miód
fish – ryba
meat – mięso
seafood – owoce morze (literally “fruits of the sea”)
poultry – drób
