Review: Na Sushi
Sleek, dark and dominated by a lush picture of a breathtaking waterfall, at Na Sushi a smart crowd join forces around a horseshoe-shaped bar to click chopsticks over a top pedigree menu high on enticements: eel rolls with marinated pumpkin and sriracha wrapped in torched yellowtail and lime; spicy...

Review: Falla

Reviews 18 May 2018 0

Hardcore vegans will already know the name – a sensation in Poznań (and now, also, Gdynia), Falla have branched out to finally enter the capital. This they’ve done triumphantly, with both pricing and location combining to keep this venue blocked solid with a muddled mass of students from the... Read more
Review: El Krepel
Warsaw’s always had a sweet tooth, the difference being that it’s only in the past few years that it’s really embraced desserts as something to be placed on a pretty little pedestal and treated with awe. El Krepel does just that, presenting a range of elegant temptations lined up... Read more
Review: Arigator
Already high on the phenomenal success of, first, Dziurka od Klucza, and then, La Sirena, owners Agnieszka and Stanisław Szpilowski are looking to score the perfect hat-trick with Arigator, a Japanese-style noodle joint whose interior whisks you to the narrow, steamy back alleys of late night Tokyo. Clad in... Read more
Review: Mikkeller
When news first filtered through that Mikkeller were opening a bar in Warsaw there was that brief little moment akin to a déjà vu. “Remember BrewDog,” we all muttered as one. A cautionary tale if ever there was, BrewDog’s foray into Warsaw stands out as the most spectacular example... Read more
Review: Pink Lobster
The Place Swank and stylish. The door clatters shut to divulge a long, narrow space of tall palm fronds and marble finishes underneath soaring ceilings that seem to stretch on forever. Bursts of flamingo pink color lend a dapper sense of dazzle to this polished-looking venue. The Chef If... Read more
Review: Bistro Pod Sowami
The Area Disclosure: ask me to think of Old Praga and I think of half-wrecked buildings with foul-smelling corridors leading to dark, squalid courtyards. Sure, I’m no longer paranoid that I’ll get my throat cut at every turn, but that’s hardly an endorsement. But the truth is, change is... Read more
Margarita Kolendra
Without wishing to insult anyone, the way I see it, Mexican cuisine doesn’t require all that much thought – at least, not when it comes to executing the pretty basic dishes that ex-pats demand. What it does need, mind you, is a little bit of know-how and a bag... Read more
Review: Vietnamka
Divey but lively, diners step down into Vietnamka to find a shouty little lair of mint green walls and wobbly wooden tables. Infused with a gentle sense of chaos (drinks after mains, mains before starters), there’s a certain charm at work that feels authentic and convincing. As for the... Read more
Review: Talerzyki
Offering a nostalgic journey through Poland’s culinary heritage, Talerzyki have acquired a devoted audience in double quick time: presenting big flavors on small plates, here’s a place that miniaturizes the more glorious aspects of the nation’s cuisine and does so in style. The usual suspects are here – silvery... Read more
