Spicy paste, with a punchy taste!

For sausage lovers, we recommended their sausages that looks like a Frankfurt. They are a Polish-style semi-dry type sausage.
They serve their meat with a “special” sauce that has a gentle taste that does not spoil the taste of meat. For those who want more seasoning they have a “spicy paste”. It is usually a seasoning to be eaten on the liver, but mixing it with their regular sauce is also good.
