Assignment: How polish milk bars survive inflation
Milk bars became popular across Poland after World War I. Subsidised by the government and encouraged as a way to provide good nutritious food to workers that cost very little. Now, when the inflation is so high more and more people dine in those affordable places.
The milk bar cannot disappear,' says Mateusz Gzel (21), who is in Bar Sady with two fellow students from the film academy. "It's part of the Polish culture." He himself comes there once or twice a week. "It's good food and it's a cheap place for everyone." Krzysztof (41) agrees. "I come here almost every day. This is the only place I can eat for a good price. And really Polish.' New customers come in and stamp the snow off their shoes. From the kitchen comes another shout: “Pierogi!”
