Friday’s Featured Food: Eating at Kubicki, the Oldest Restaurant in Gdańsk

Again, Friday’s Featured Food has been a neglected part of my blog and as you can imagine, I have eaten enough different types of food on my journey to keep this as a weekly fixture for ten years or more, probably 100 in fact. But I won’t have time to do one every week, but today I take you to the Oldest Restaurant in Gdańsk in Poland – Kubicki. After whackpacking the world, I decided to settle in Gdańsk in times of depression. Here is the restaurant’s website: Kubicki Website.

Where is Kubicki?
Kubicki is down by the riverside in the beautiful Old Town of Gdansk. Your walk will take you through the Stare Miasto (dreamlike) and past the crane and some boats.

Not too far from the Solidarnosc Museum either, or the ill fated Post Office which the Germans stormed when they decided to start World War 2.

Who Went to Kubicki with me?
I went on a charming walk here with the original Starogard Girl, Ola Mueller. This can only be described as a tainted date, in retrospect. This was to be our first and only date. A feast for her eyes with her charming Northern Irish man in Poland, her luscious charms disappearing into the sunset after her romantic tongue kissing. #olamueller

How Old is Kubicki?
It dates back to 1918, so it has survived this city under the moniker of the “Free City of Danzig”, the Nazi invasion, the Second World War and the Communist era, Solidarnosc and the like. The restaurant has remained open and Polish cuisine has been served for almost 100 years.

The Menu
This is not a cheap place to dine and I went there only once. The food in the meantime, was delicious and the date was the best either of us will ever have. I think we can somehow admit that.

We were only here for a light meal, so we decided on a soup and a starter. Ola chose the stinging nettle and spinach soup with crayfish.

I love Pierogi in Poland and so I decided to try the Gdanski style Pierogi here.

All meals are served with bread and pickle and we also had a water each.

After the dinner date, we walked romantically through the Stare Miasto in Gdansk and spoke of how we would meet in St. Petersburg (a city I have yet to visit oddly) and how Ola could take me to some cafes and bars and on a tour of her town. Later, I had not only toured her town, but made the front page of her local newspaper, became suicidal, went missing and later dated another girl from nearby. The memories though, are saved for this table here…

Oh and the spot where Ola romantically kissed me launching lips upon a tourist who was none the wiser. That was me, that was Ola “Aleksandra” Mueller. Where once we dated, where once we kissed.

Ola Mueller, thanks for this nice evening, I will post stuff on Northern Irishman in Poland from now on.

The nights out we had were good though. We toured from Romania to Bulgaria and met up finally in life, in Poland. Thanks, baby!
