Before any attempts to tackle Milkbar Tomasza, one needs to understand the idea behind the heart and soul of Socialist gastronomy, a milk bar. These were state - subsidized canteens, initially serving non - meat dishes (to call them vegetarian is a gross overstatement, though), and later all types of simple, yet filing Polish cuisine meals at virtually a penny - or 'grosz', for that matter. For decades, if out of home for lunch, a milk bar was the place to go for all classes, from a factory worker to university professor, and today, many hipster eateries take on the air of milk bar canteens, not only in terms of re-vamped interiors, but simplicity of their menu and moderate prices as well. And such is the case of Milkbar Tomasza, a place where plates bubble with king-size pierogi portions and schnitzels are the size of a saucer. Good place to lay back and savour Krakow, as Milkbar Tomasza is tucked away off the beaten tourist track.
