Review: Uki Green
A union of two of Warsaw’s favorite fads, Uki Green presents vegan ramen noodles inside a minimalistic interior that’s big on Japanese wood joints and concrete finishes. Sparse and spartan, the somewhat stern aesthetic is softened by the busy backdrop: it’s been open a few seconds, but already it’s... Read more
Review: Kur & Wino
It’s hard to fault a concept when it’s executed this well.

Review: Smanczneego
Special moments await in not-so-distant Konstancin… First things first and there are those that will gripe about the location of SmaczneEgo: “Konstancin,” they’ll whine, “but isn’t that far?” The answer depends on how you view distance.
