Guest Post: Jolka Polka, the Polish experience

(picture: The Little Girl in Boots)

Looking for authentic Polish food? Made by Polish people for Polish people, you will find the best Píerozkí in town here! You can also try the Placek po węgiersku… or a typical Polish pie, a mix of vanilla custard with white chocolate on the top and crunchy nuts.

At Jolka Polka, the food is home-made, the menu is in Polish, and the ambiance is very friendly. You hear every possible language in the room, but mostly Polish, as the restaurant has become the rallying point of the community in Zurich. On Saturday, the owner organises karaoke, and all the regulars jump to their feet to sing together. Why not join them?

This guest post was written by Julie of The Little Girl in Boots. She is passionate about traveling, photography and videography – and the Polish cuisine!

Yeahhh: Favourite new shops at Kreis 3

During a stroll through Kreis 3 we recently discovered two new shops and fell in love with both of them.

One of them is full of beautiful furniture and objects from Scandinavia: Nordish Living. You should definitely check it out if you are in need of a birthday present or looking for a simple and chic piece of furniture.

Our other discovery is Honig Kuchen - a place where sweet meets sweeter. Wabe3 stands for delicious honey, produced by real Zurich city bees! The beekeepers place their hives on unused rooftops, so don’t be surprised if bees pass by your balcony.

Anima Pompon produces “British and American YUM YUMs” which can be bought at Honig Kuchen as well. We tried the scones – delicious! The shop itself is beautifully furnished and decorated and a great place to find a present or chat with the friendly people of Wabe3 or Anima Pompon.
