The fifth quarter, in butchery terms, refers to offal—the bits and pieces like sweetbreads, brains, liver, and spleen that can be quite delicious when cooked well.
The Fifth Quarter, in the Kubicki Arcades under the King's Palace in Old Warsaw, does it well. Vegetarians will not be pleased, but anyone who enjoys the nasty bits will appreciate this place, a diversion from your daily cabbage and pierogi allotment.
