Perhaps we just struck lucky. Maybe our faces fitted somehow. Having a fluent Polish speaker on our team clearly helped. Suffice it to say that we had an excellent meal at Pod Samsonem, in spite of all its Communist-era quirks.Our chopped liver, herrings, chicken soup, duck and spinach-filled pancakes were all freshly prepared and very tasty. Sure, the 'welcome' was curiously brusque ('put those coats in the cloakroom!'), the service was slow ('regulars' who came in after us were served immediately) and they forgot to bring a second bottle of cola. But there was an authenticity to this place that left us feeling that we had experienced just a little of what Warsaw must have been like in the 1930s. And the prices were very reasonable. We would happily return.
