a day in krakow, continued.

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

something pretty noteworthy happened in krakow: i finally found a european city that knows what milkshakes are. 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

right, so - like cookies, milkshakes are nearly impossible to find in europe.  half the time, the menu will say “chocolate milkshake” and when you order it, you find that it’s milk mixed with chocolate powder…also known as chocolate milk.  i stopped wasting money on these a long time ago, but it occurred to me in krakow that poland might be the one country to solve this milkshake mystery.  i happen to know that the milkshake was invented in chicago (don’t ask why or how i know this) and since chicago is basically poland (after warsaw, the city with the most polish inhabitants in THE WORLD is chicago), i took a chance, ordered a strawberry milkshake, tasted it and exclaimed, “they’ve done it! the poles have done it!”

then, about 5 hours later, i decided i hadn’t consumed enough dairy for the day and ordered a soft serve ice cream cone from a street vendor.  hate to break it to you, krakow, but…. stick to milkshakes.  ice cream cones (softserve, at least) are not your forte.  being an insanely charming city, on the other hand, is.

Did the milkshake bring all the boys to the yard?

Hee!

I'm sorry, I know that thing is soooo overdone but, alas, whenever I hear milkshake I think of Kelis and her fab tune.

Awesome about the milkshake! And the tomato/basil/olive/bread mix looks DIVINE.

Also, I haven't had a milkshake in, like, YEARS.

(...yeah, I don't know.)

Ever tried German ice cream parlors for milkshakes - the usually make their's with ice cream and you can always ask them for one or two extra scoops to make it really thick =)

How great is that museaum in the Sukiennice? All the artwork is just presented in such a beautiful way. That little cafe is so cute up there! And the view - spectacular!

hallelu!

i mean seriously- every milkshake i get around here is just stinking milk. i do like my milk but when you're expecting like 109238 calories and you get milk... well, its just sad.
