Perhaps no-one person has shaped Warsaw’s Asian path more than restaurateur Yeunsu Lee. Now, for her latest concept, she explores the pleasures of the Korean grill, a group slanted affair in which diners heap marinated bulgogi, rib-eye steak and Mangalica pork underneath overhead heaters. Complimented by bitsy starters, everything... Read more

Previously known as Warung Jakarta, the menu here has a street food edge with secret magic recipes extending to Nasi Goreng and a lively chicken Rendeng. Accessible to all levels of income, it’s become one of the true unsung glories of ethnic Warsaw. Gado Gado ul. Piękna 28/34 Read more

Bangkok Soi

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

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

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

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

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
