Platzki have launched a potato pancake festival later this month to pay homage to the simple spud

Platzki has just this week announced a two day festival in celebration of an iconic Polish dish, placki ziemniaczane, or the potato pancake.

On the 18th and 19th of January, the popular eatery will serving up six different flavours for you to feast on.

A staple in Polish households for centuries, the potato pancake served as a meat substitute during Lent and as an alternative to bread during tough times.

Now, the delightfully crunchy yet soft-centred speciality has been reimagined with a variety of toppings and garnishes – from wild creamy mushroom sauce with fresh herbs, to sausage stew, to roasted pork neck with potato dumplings and horseradish gravy.

Sounds absolutely delicious.

The festival is set in the stylish surroundings of Platzki in The Great Northern Warehouse later on this month.

Luckily for you, you won’t have to book either.

Sittings will start at 4pm in the afternoon and run until 10pm in the evening for those looking to take the party into the night.

Platzki has curated a menu with meat and vegetarian options to cater to everyone.

Tucked away in the Great Northern Warehouse, Platzki has gone from strength to strength since it opened six years ago serving some amazing authentic polish food.

Potatoes not your thing?

They have an incredible a la carte menu featuring highlights such as:  Ryba sea-bass fillets, Schabowy Pork Crispy Snitzl, Karkowka Roaster Pork Neck and dumplings, with much, much more on offer too.

Dont forget to thank your hosts with Dziekuje Platzki! (It’s pronounced jen-koo-yea and means thank you.)
