Jewish in Lublin

There’s good kitsch and there’s bad kitsch, and at Mandragora, it’s all good. Sure it's going for the Fiddler on the Roof effect with the lace tablecloths, knick-knacks and photos of old Lublin, but in the romantic Rynek setting it works wonderfully. The food is heartily Jewish, from roast duck with tzimmes (stewed carrots and dried fruit) to salt beef.
