Pan Kasztan / Mr Chestnut Dec 06, 2015
Hot chestnuts are identified with Christmas street food! The Christmas is almost here so it is a good time to write about Pan Kasztan / Mr Chestnut.
Where one can find hot chestnuts? In Vienna, Paris, Milan, Rome. In Sarajevo, Lviv, Istanbul and even in Moscow and New York. It could seem that only the Poles missed the pleasure that comes from the chestnuts eating.
The history of chestnuts in Poland is long. They were quite popular before WW2. But then the war happend and they were forgotten. Now, they are coming back! In the country located by the Vistula River they are still something unusual! In fact you can buy them only in Warsaw and Kraków. There are only three stalls (2 in Warsaw, 1 in Kraków) where you can get them.
I like chestnuts. I'm happy that I don't have to go to Paris or Istanbul again to eat them. Finally I have them at home. In Warsaw one booth is located on Charles de Gaulle roundabout and the second, on Wilson Square. You can always find here hot chestnuts. Sometimes you need to wait for them, but waiting pays off. They are really delicious!
The boy who sells them like to talk about chestnuts. The things he tells are quite interesting. Surprisingly interesting LOL
