“I’ll have one of those, one of those, one of those, one of those, one of those, one of those and one of those please,” I said. “Okay, and one of those. And maybe one of those, too. Fine, and one of those.”
That’s how it goes at the Chimera salad bar in Krakow. While there is a proper, vegetarian-friendly restaurant in the lower level of this historic building, the real gem is the upstairs salad bar. You pay by the number of dishes you want to try (I think there are six or seven on the plate above?) and then point to the different items along the thirty-metre long encased salad bar so that the staff can dish them up onto your plate. There was also a selection of drinks; kvass is on the menu, as are celery milkshakes. To top it all off you get to enjoy your meal in a beautiful, enclosed garden patio with lush greenery all around.
