Time Out Melbourne

Little Poland, in Elsternwick

After the Tears, is the sister restaurant of the perennially popular Borsch,Vodka and Tears in Windsor. Owner Andrzej Kaczmarski knows he’s on a good wicket and hasn’t changed much here, so expect przekąski – Polish tapas platters of pickled herrings, Russian potato salad, beets and trout terrines. Or of course, there's borsch. Afterwards, drink to everyone’s health with a vodka list that’ll bring tears (of joy) to any boozer worth his borsch.
