Of course our new Polish issue includes Polish food. Landsberger Eck pays tribute to the Prussian roots of Western Poland with Kneipe-style home cooking. Read about it here and grab the issue for more Eastern eats.
This new family restaurant pays tribute to Western Poland’s Prussian roots with cuisine that owes as much to Germany as the architecture in the owners’ hometown of Gorzów Wielkopolski does to old Landsberg.
Expect typical Kneipe-style home cooking such as Rouladen with dumplings (€13.30) and pork cutlets with fried potatoes (€11.90) alongside a few “Eastern accents”: pierogi, of course (€3.90-6.90/portion, filled with meat, potato/quark or sweet quark), but also beetroot salad, homemade fresh tomato soup with noodles (€4.50), quark-filled pancakes (€3.90) and the Silesian take on Hefeklöße, potato-yeast dumplings shaped like small flying saucers.
On the wall old photographs of Landsberg (including one of the owner’s great-grandmother’s home) could be of pre-war Berlin, with one particular street view showing an uncanny resemblance to Zionskirchstraße and its church, as seen from the restaurant’s namesake corner.
Decent wines, cute touches such as homemade lemonade and fresh mint from Poland as well as the friendliness of the proprietors make up for the somehow gloomy vibe of the overdone decorations. And prices are more than fair!
