Restaurants 3 April 2019 0

Without being privy to statistics, you’d hazard a guess this was the most blogged about restaurant of March 2019. Small and informal, the narrow choice makes it easy to sample everything within a couple of visits – and it’s likely you’ll return to do just that. Replicating the street... Read more

Yatta Ramen

Restaurants 12 November 2018 0

Already recognizable from Nocny Market, the success of Marcin and Przemek’s mobile ramen stop has been such that a bricks-and-mortar venue was deemed necessary. Scruffy, frayed and clattery, the stationary address feels the ideal outlet for their operation: step inside to join other hip creatures Instagramming the only jiro... Read more

Blog 11 November 2018 0

Most places that claim to serve fusion do so because of an identity crisis. At Shoku, though, the mix and match approach when it comes to Asia (if it’s tasty, stick it on the menu!) feels rational and put together. Never short of custom, locals gather inside a bright,... Read more

Notes: MOD

Blog 7 November 2018 0

As extraordinary as it is eccentric, MOD is not your conventional restaurant. An odd meeting of ideas, it combines the work of three people (Kamila, Patrycja and Trisno) who between them have created a space that houses both a donut store and restaurant. It sounds a little dissonant, but... Read more

Inspired by their owner’s travels to New York, Dubai, Berlin and Paris, Pera looks to present a mix of Mediterranean and Asian tastes courtesy of Nestor Grajewski – he’s cooked for Scorsese, Diaz and Di Caprio, now he’s cooking for you! From the same team behind the long-established Maho... Read more

Though best known as Warsaw’s principal source of craft beer, Nowogrodzka is starting to show it’s more than just a one-trick pony. Helping the food angle along is this newbie, a tiny Korean joint with an even smaller menu. So far so good, with the bulgogi arguably being the... Read more
Review: The Cool Cat TR
The Place Interior-wise, you’re looking at a hip, edgy venue that offsets all the concrete colors with punches of contemporary art and waterfalls of greenery that tumble over the windows. The overt hipness is reflected by a crowd that’s heavy on tattoos, piercings and odd urban style: you know... Read more
Ukim

Ukim

Restaurants 20 July 2018 0

Though not as high profile as Warsaw’s other gastro streets, Chłodna’s gradual resurgence has been no less spectacular. But fine dining and fancy wine bars aside, it’s actually the more standard venues that make the area feel so complete. Take Ukim, a cheerful joint decorated with steel Tolix chairs... Read more
Review: Kukpit
Back to the riverfront we go! With the Wisła heating up for summer, all eyes are on Barka Wynurzenie, one of the great, big hits of recent years. Accessed over a bouncy gangplank, find this classic barge venue – its deck strung with hammocks – anchored close to the... Read more

Ramyun

Restaurants 30 May 2018 0

Replacing Koszyki’s disappointingly watered-down version of a famers’ market is a new street food section that already looks highly promising. Gathering about eight or nine operators together, highlights include Ramyun, a small stall specializing in Korean bites such as kimchi, ramyun noodles and baguettes filled with bulgogi. Looks great,... Read more
