Review: Poke

Reviews 11 September 2017 0

The foodie world’s word of the moment? Poke. Declared this year’s ‘must-have snack’ by the Guardian, poke’s popularity has fanned across the map to become one of the most exciting food fads of recent times. Polynesian by birth, this raw fish salad comes served on a bed of rice... Read more
Maryensztadt Craft Beer & Food
It’s a mixed crowd of locals and tourists that gather in Maryensztadt, a large bar whose 12 taps showcase the highs (and occasional lows) produced by the brewery that gives this pub its name. Set across a series of cavernous chambers inside an attractive Old Town property, its not... Read more
Review: Fat Buddha
Idolized one moment, forgotten the next, few streets encapsulate the boom and bust nature of Warsaw’s after dark scene better than Mazowiecka. Having represented the very pinnacle of the city’s social life for much of the Naughty Noughties, the last few years saw numerous pioneering venues fall between the... Read more

Etno

Reviews 7 August 2017 0

Having already made a big splash in Wrocław, Etno have found themselves surfacing in Warsaw with something of a reputation to uphold. This they do successfully thanks to pure Arabica sourced from the highlands of Abyssinia. Yet while Ethiopian coffee is perhaps the most prominent, the coffee of Kenya,... Read more
Review: Zielnik
Almost British in its damp and inconsistency, this summer has teased, frustrated and only occasionally delivered. Regardless of this, the natives remain defiant and undefeated – the first crack of light, and out they come, scurrying outside to bask in the sun. For some, this has meant surrendering all...

Review: Stixx
No Warsaw district has experienced quite such a profound transformation as Wola. Once a byword for urban decay, what was once a sad, dusty wasteland has blossomed to become the business district of tomorrow. Nowhere symbolizes this revolution as much as Pl. Europejski: but while the temptation is to... Read more
Review: The Bell
The Place Always, the temptation exists to carve the city in two: Warsaw A (the left side) and Warsaw B (the right side). Doing so, however, overlooks that there’s also a Warsaw A Plus. Consider that to be Saska Kępa. An affluent enclave of elegance and class, The Bell... Read more
Review: Palmier
It’s easy to carve and condense south central Warsaw into snack-sized pieces – you’ve got Nowogrodzka, celebrated for its craft beer and busy bars; there’s Poznańska, with its neo-bistros and summer street scene; Koszykowa, now forever defined by Hala Koszyki; and Mokotowska with its fancy boutiques. Wilcza, that’s all... Read more
Pani Wina
Announced by an Art Nouveau-style stained glass sign, Pani Wina is the wine bar that will make a difference. Tucked down an upcoming stretch of Wilcza, the interiors play-up to the pre-war heritage of the building with the elegantly demure decorations anchored around mustard-colored banquettes, olive green walls and...

Review: Amber Room
When the time comes to write a complete written history of dining in Poland, there’s one place above all others that will warrant its own chapter. Launched in 2003 under the patronage of media mogul Jan Wejchert, for its first six years The Amber Room was one of the... Read more
