Already hailed for their operation out in the nether reaches of Mokotów, the Mexican team behind Kolendra have expanded to open up on Okrzei, a shabby street that’s gradually gentrifying. It’s a small, budget-minded interior that feels like it was assembled in a hurry – yet rather than being... Read more

With neither Polish nor English spoken by the staff (at least, not on our visit), the ordering process can be both labored and a little bizarre. Those who survive it are rewarded by commendable quesadillas, interesting chilequilas and quite excellent tacos: hat tip to the Al Pastor. Enjoy them... Read more
Loco Mexicana Marszałkowska
Some ideas just never really make it past the concept stage: take Loco Mexicana, a place that seeks to exploit New Warsaw’s double pronged mania for craft beer and Mexican food. From the former, they’ve gone for a mundane line-up that falls way short of the boundary-pushing selections of... Read more

At Zielnik the Insider did the impossible – roar through a nine-course challenge… and enjoy it! Holding the key to all this was a dinosaur portion of ribs and a hefty entrecote. Zbigz Eats combines the talents of a young Texas-raised chef with the glories of the Raduga craft... Read more

Putting the bar into barge, bounce across a gangplank to board this summer hit. Beers are provided by the Raduga craft brewery, and food courtesy of Texas raised Zbyszek Gawron: it’s hot, Mexican and perfect for sunset. Barka Wynurzenie Bulwar Grzymały Siedleckiego Read more

Candy floss pink and ocean blue? Remarkably, these colors work thanks to lighting that’s kept dimmed and dark: inspired by 80s Mexico City, Pacyfik looks and feels raw and gritty, hip and happening. Catering to more than just the overspill from Hala Koszyki, this hangout has assumed immediate cult... Read more
Barka Wynurzenie
Drinking on the Wisła no longer means having to settle for mainstream beer served a notch above warm. Leading this (r)evolutionary process is Wynurzenie, a floating bar set on a canopied barge. Bounce across the gangplank to indulge in tap beers from Raduga and a Mexican menu that’s modest... Read more

Famed for his long association with El Popo, chef Angel Aceves Vivanco has teamed up with Lourdes Estrada to create this cheerful-looking spot on the edge of New Town. Ringing with colorful patterns and mosaics, the effect is simple but reassuringly lively – the same can be said of... Read more

Going Out 17 April 2017 0

Though their Polonized interpretation of Mexican food is bewildering, and at times even hilarious, Loco do at least stock a few decent beers.
