What's For Lunch Today? Pyrlandia Polish Street Food | Rupert Street Market

Firstly, apologies for the crappy iPhone photos, I don't carry my camera around with me so these will have to do :)

Today I ventured down to the Rupert St Market again to have a bit of a mooch and see what would tickle my fancy. Walking passed the huge queue at the Freebird Burritos stand I went to last week, I saw a lot of pulled pork rolls and burgers, but I was looking for something extraordinary. I knew I would know when I saw it.




Cue, Pyrlandia, the Polish Street Food stall. I didn't even know this puppy existed but am so glad to know now. I knew what I wanted immediately as my Polish belly gravitated closer and closer to the tent. Bigos, all day, every day, with extra sausage; a Pols dream.

Bigos, which translates to 'Hunter's Stew' is very much a 'throw everything in the pot' kind of dish. The base of the stew is sauerkraut and cabbage, and as I know it, has about three or four different types of pork and mushrooms. This particular food stall offered the stew with potatoes or a bun so I went for the potatoes. It reminds me of going to my Grandma's and special occasions, so imagine my delight upon seeing it on my unsuspecting lunch break.

There's no nice way to photograph Bigos, so here's a very rough and ready photo, for a very rough and ready meal.


The meal set me back £6, but it's ok because I am literally stuffed, I wanted to have a choccy bar this afternoon but I just don't see that happening, which I guess is a good thing. I'm SO happy to have found a decent local Polish food stall to my work, as I know it will make lunch time choices that much easier.
