We have our first Polish shop, took over the local Costcutters. Had a wander around in there yesterday, came out empty handed as I had no idea what I was looking at. Loads upon loads of different meats and about 20 types of sausages but nothing in English so I walked out. What did catch my eye was what looked like a giant slab of streaky bacon. Had the rind on it as well. But as the label clearly did not mention bacon or a word that looked like bacon I left it. 

I did spot green and red Thai Curry Paste in big pots. The proper Thai stuff not the rubbish from Blue Dragon or Sharwoods and that gigantic plank of a has been chef Ainsley Harriet.

Taking me phone in there today for translation purposes. Because the stuff they have in there looks really nice just a shame you don't know what bit of the animal you are buying.

Why didn't you just ask the owner/staff ? They won't bite 🤔😂 Some of the Polish foodstuffs are quite nice,,,, and reasonably priced, so my Polish colleagues tell me 😉

I have no idea why I didn't ask. I thought that when I was getting in the car.

Seriously, they'd prefer that you ask rather than just stroll about and leave looking confused 😊

A fair few EE shops around here! I love them. Some really odd and exciting products in them. They love their sausages and cheeses.  They always find it funny that I pop in but are helpful if you ask what the heck stuff is. 
some great beers to be had at good prices too! Zubr (Bison) lager at 6% is good for a headache!
