"Eating out. There is nothing like a good pork cutlet."

Eric:
Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "lovely dinner out."

Marzena:
(SLOW) Obiadek na mieście. (REGULAR) Obiadek na mieście.
Eric:
Then comes the phrase - "There is nothing like a good pork cutlet.."

Nie ma to jak dobry schabowy!
Eric:

The "Pork cutlet" mentioned here is arguably one of the most traditional Polish dishes and the first one a Polish person will miss when travelling abroad. Listen again- "There is nothing like a good pork cutlet." is...
Marzena:
(SLOW) Nie ma to jak dobry schabowy! (REGULAR) Nie ma to jak dobry schabowy!

Marzena:
Obiadek na mieście. Nie ma to jak dobry schabowy!
