The delicatessen, which sells Polish goods, looks good from the outside. The store is bright and colourful and inside it is filled with a variety of products.
But on closer inspection there are indications of why reasons why the store received a zero star rating.
A fridge which covers almost one side of the store, is virtually empty except for a few cans of alcohol.
I was told by the woman behind the counter, the only hot food in the building is a type of polish bread which they cook in an oven behind the counter.
However, the woman then said that the store had run out of the bread anyway so I wasn’t able to try any.
Instead, I bought a few slices of ham. It was refrigerated but didn’t look particularly appetising and didn’t taste very good either. Nothing jumped out as being a major problem but I certainly wouldn’t be back in a hurry. Inspectors were unable to give specific details on what they found in Stonka but did say it scored very poorly in the three catergories of hygiene, structural and management leading to a zero stars rating overall.
