I arrived in Gdansk a little bit under the weather. I convinced myself it was just the common cold, but in fact it was probably bronchitis or something. I felt okay, but I had a lingering hacking cough that wouldn’t quit. The first thing I did after checking into the amazing Mamas & Papas hostel was return to the city center and look for something healthy to eat. I wasn’t sure what a vegetarian in Poland would be able to eat, but I soon found an Italian-esque restaurant that offered a number of vegetarian dishes, including this salad. Leafy greens, chickpeas, lentils, tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, cucumber, sprouts… surely if this doesn’t have all of the vitamins and minerals that I needed, nothing would. Even better, the menu featured throat-soothing lemon-ginger-orange tea that made me feel better after just one sip.
I ate some other meals in Gdansk too!
