Blog 12 October 2017 0

And so… the story this month: that’s seen a stonking good meal in Strefa, a formal looking eatery with a pristine white-on-white interior.

American-owned, it’s a place that seeks to present a different side to US-cuisine: not the run-of-the-mill stuff... Read more

Beef, bbq and burgers play a sizeable role at Dwa Woły in more ways than one: the double burger is an almost obscene, secret pleasure. Also notable are their pastrami sandwiches and Tex Mex deals. With the summer closing out, enjoy the last rays of sun of their seasonal... Read more
