On Krakow’s historical Kanonicza Street is located Kurka Wodna or the The Water Hen, an inspired name which is a cultural symbol of joy. A modern Polish menu here is inspired by Galicja, a historical region that straddled the modern-day border between Poland, Ukraine, and Slovakia; here intermingling nationalities produced a remarkable cuisine reflecting exchange and creativity. The products used in the kitchen are regional, as is the historical idea of wine being brought mainly from Hungary—all of the wines here are indeed from wineries around the Danube, with the sweet Tokaj taking center stage. Chef Wojtek Walczy has produced a wonderful menu with items such as the marinated goose breast carpaccio with mixed berry sauce, and the plum-brandy-flavored slow-roasted pork tenderloin. Elegant, with friendly service, Kurka Wodna is an impressive addition to Krakow’s culinary scene!
