Taking over the Great Northern’s Community Kitchen this week is Manchester’s best loved, independent Polish restaurant, Platzki, creators of modern interpretations of authentic Polish classics, injected with passion and full of flavour.
From traditional Polish smoked sausage with bacon and potato filled pierogi, to deep fried pork pierogi served with homemade BBQ sauce, crispy black pudding balls served with apple gravy, to steamed white cabbage rolls filled with either pork or mushrooms, and served with a tomato sauce, every mouthful will transport you to the breathtaking mountains and bustling streets of Poland.
And it doesn’t stop with the food; Platzki will be serving up traditional Polish tipples, including some good old fashioned Somplica vodka flavoured with quince, hazelnut or cherry. Or enjoy a G&T with a twist from Didsbury Gin. With a range of flavours to choose from including raspberry and elderflower, strawberry and lemon or blood orange, along with classic red or white wines, or an ice cold pint of Estrella Damm.
The Platzki dining experience will be open from Thursday 10th until Sunday 13th September. There’s no need to book, simply pop down and enjoy drinks and food outdoors either solo or with the rest of your household.
On Great Northern’s restaurant on the square, Centre Director Mark Schofield said: “We’re excited to welcome one of the city’s best loved eateries, Platzki, and I’m sure visitors to the Great Northern will love the authentic flavours of Poland which will be on offer at our pop-up kitchen over the weekend.”
