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

It’s hard to fault a simple concept when it’s executed this well. In this case, that means rotisserie chickens and guinea fowl served on wooden trays with an array of homemade sauces that include sweet plum, spicy mango and Sriracha. Amiable service, a funky / retro design (old LPs,... Read more

With the generic Nero on one side, and the super cool Fat White on the other, Robusta occupies a safe middle space in more ways than one. Whether it can compete with either is to be seen, but for now there’s no doubt that it’s mere existence is further... Read more

Insouciant one moment, your best friend the next, the staff at Jaś & Małgosia show the two faces of Polish service brilliantly. Reactivated a couple of years ago, this pavilion bar has a story dating back to the 60s, and a great atmosphere primed for plates of simple food,... Read more

Attached to a super cool barber shop (tatts, beards, crazy whiskers!), this tiny café has a beauty of an interior: swan white with surfaces graced by contemporary artwork that references the Muranów district and dozens of collectible superhero figures (plus a gun-toting Pacino). There’s a real scene going on... Read more

Early teething problems exist: don’t be surprised to find the restaurant occasionally plunged into darkness – not so bad if you’re on the ground level, but more of a problem if you’re in the basement. Power outages aside, look forward to a jolly design, and the kind of food... Read more

Better known for kebab stores and booze outlets, this section of JPII does at times chuck up the occasional surprise: Kromki, for one. The menu is a Jack-of-all-trades, with pizza and burgers rubbing shoulders against pierogi, steak and sharing plates. Yet despite the randomness of the choices and the... Read more

Looking to revise and rehabilitate the reputation of fried chicken, this cult spot has cool staff, a busy buzz and a tasty selection of strips, wings and burgers (chicken, of course) – the sauces, especially the mango-based ones, are to die for. Look on it as a chicken shop... Read more

Ice cream season is back, and with it a new address to watch: cementing Andersa’s burgeoning reputation as a center of cool is Roszki, a budget looking room decorated in flamingo pink colors. It doesn’t look much, but it tastes spot on. Find a choice of knock-out artisan ice... Read more
