Eating Like a Local

In every town all of the world there is spot where the “locals” eat that you won’t find in any travel guide.  When we travel VERY rarely will you find us eating on the main streets of the city but on the small side streets.  Why? Because the prices are usually cheaper and the food is more authentic.   If it is restaurant where all the locals go eat then you know it is good!

Well last week I finally ate at a place that MANY locals have told me about over the years where they go for quick mini pizza’s and doughnuts.  An old church missionary from Iceland come to visit us for a few days and on his bucket list to do was go grab lunch one day at “Drozdzowa Pychotka.”

Since I heard about this place or and over again and just how good it was, I had to try it with him to get the inside scoop of what is best.  This is one lunch date that I will remember for a long time.

To find this hidden place you will need to go through these gates on Gdanska street and it will right on the right hand side.

Even the pigeons know how good this place is.  They were patiently waiting outside for people to drop crumbs so they could grab a quick snack too.

I am not sure why I it has taken me 2+ years to finally eat at this place!  If are in the Bydgoszcz area, you need to eat here and try eating like a local.

What are some of your favorite “local” restaurants you have eaten at before?  Mine is Chico’s  Pizza in Ritzville, Washington.
