Na Zdrowie, the restaurant's exotic name is in Polish, means "cheers" in English. Situated on Glebe Point Road, one of the most vibrant streets in Sydney, it has a great selection of traditional Polish meals, along with classic crowd pleaser desert. An exquisite folk art deco theme throughout the restaurant provides cozy old-world ambience.
It was on a cold winter day, a perfect day for indoor dining. I booked a table for my walking group before our night adventure toward Bicentennial Park. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we couldn't take our eyes off the beautiful interior decorations that pull references from Polish folk arts; the handmade fabric dolls, the miniature of different clay pots, the rustic looking hanging lamps. After pleasing our eye balls and our curious minds, we were about to start our Polish feast.
The menu is bilingual, Polish and English. I didn't have a clue what would be the best dish to welcome someone so naïve in Polish cuisine like me. The friendly staff came to rescue us from our hard time of choosing. So here came my choice of the night, choices of a typical Polish family meal:
Desert: Kosciuszko Ice Cream – Ice cream served with polish sweets and topped with flaming caramel ($9.90).
It would be easy for the professional gastronomist to describe how these dishes are prepared, from texture and taste to presentation. But all I can say is it has spoiled my taste buds with different textures - crispy, crunchy, soft, squashy and creamy. The main dish gave me so much inspiration to give the traditional Chinese dumplings a western twist in my own kitchen. If you are a beer lover, don't forget to order one from a wide range of Polish brands. I missed this part as I didn't want to do the zigzag walk during my night adventure with the group.
Na Zdrowie also caters for group bookings with $50 per head for a set menu. However get in early to ensure availability. If you are after a romantic, merry and exotic dining experience, Na Zdrowie is the place to be.
