"Just Don't Tell Anyone," and the WAIS Effect (from Gary Moore) (John Eipper, USA, 05/30/19 12:45 am)

Gary Moore writes:

Thanks to Ed Jajko for his useful media survey of current Poland. And serendipitously, our moderator's jet-lagged touchdown there gives valuable enfilading fire. Where but WAIS can you learn in depth of a foreign controversy and hear to boot:  "Yes, this is what they said about it at lunch"?

JE comments:  And a splendid lunch it was.  Warsaw's Lotos restaurant has been around since Socialist times, and the decor hasn't changed one bit.  Timeless Polish comfort food.  I go there every time I'm in the capital.


Last night I was trying to work up some interest in watching Tylko nie mów nikomu, but sis-in-law Justyna said it was "too much."  I sense this is the same reaction Ed Jajko received from his cousins.  I'll have to watch it by myself--and not tell anyone...

  • Dining Chez Jajko, Warsaw (Edward Jajko, USA 05/31/19 12:43 AM)

    Maybe while in Warsaw (or other location) John E can eat at the Jajko restaurant. Smacznego!

    JE comments:  Alas, Pan Jajko, I'm presently far from the capital, in the wilds of Chruslanki.  The dining options here are few.  Fortunately, Mom-in-Law's cuisine is the best anywhere!

    For those still hungry, Jajko Bistro on Krakowskie Boulevard looks quite good, although the reviews are mixed:  "perfect brunch place" on the one hand, "terrible soggy watered-down eggs" on the other:

    • Dining in Poland: Jajko Bistro and Bar Mleczny (Tom Hashimoto, UK 06/04/19 12:48 AM)
      If I am correct, Jajko Bistro (see Edward Jajko, May 31st) is a spin-off of the canteen at the Warsaw School of Economics.

      Also, there are many "bar mleczny" in Poland which serve simple dishes with reasonable prices. Now, I am hungry!

      JE comments:  We are in Lublin now, and one of our favorite eateries is a "Stolówka" (cafeteria) near my father-in-law's apartment.  Part of the charm is exchanging pleasantries with the adorable "lunch ladies" who serve you comfort-food staples from the steam trays.

      Looking forward to catching up with Tom Hashimoto next week in Warsaw!
