Sourdough Soup at Old Krakow

Best Soup

The friend who brought us here confessed that he'd eaten at Old Krakow many times before he tried this dish, which didn't sound appealing to him; yet once tasted, it became not just his favorite soup, but also the main reason for repeat visits. It's a hearty yet somehow still delicately flavored white borscht, chunky and full of potatoes, onions, carrots, and a generous amount of sliced kielbasa in a creamy broth slightly thickened with the naturally fermented flour that gives it both its name and a slight tang. A bowl of this wonderful soup, washed down with Polish beer (dark Zywiec or light Okocim), is a meal.
