Who’s hungry for some PapaGrande

Well I mentioned all the weight I have gained while living here and one of the reason’s why was because of the GOOD restaurants here.  One of the restaurants is called PapaGrande.

Patryk has come a friend of mine over the years because he was the head chef at one of my favorite restaurants here but a little over a month ago(on my birthday woo hoo!), he opened up his own restaurant, PapaGrande. He has to be one of the nicest people I have met here in Bydgoszcz! A few week’s ago when I did the charity auction, he donated a gift certificate to the auction for me.

Now what do they serve at this restaurant? Some of the best homemade pasta I have had, really good pizza’s and salads.

When you order a meal there, they give this AMAZING fresh from the oven bread!

My oldest daughter and 2 of our wonderful church missionaries.  The reason why we ate there that day was to say Good-Bye to the one on the left as she was moving off to Krakow the next day.

    Food was never that good under the commies!

    One of the most pleasant surprises on my visit to Poland was the food. I mean, I knew it would be more than kapusta and pierogi, but the variety, quality, and presentation was just excellent everywhere (well, except for a kebab shop in Tarnow).
