Let’s face it, at times like this you’d be forgiven for boosting both your bulk and morale by letting the diet plan slip – and to meet that end, what works better than a towering burger. Delivered to your door by Room Service (roomservice.pl), check out the choices from this peerless platform.
When they opened in 2012 in a glorified side street shack, who would’ve known this unassuming joint would spark a dude food revolution: things got so nutty that within months it’d spurned over a hundred copycats in Warsaw alone. With the pretenders running out of steam, the city’s original new wave burgery remains its best by a factor too high to measure. But beyond a whole range of specialty burgers compiled from Hereford, Black Angus or Rib Eye beef, hit them up for habanero hot wings, surprisingly good renditions of Tex Mex dishes and commendable attempts at Chinese dishes from their sister operation Pekin Ekspres.

No intro needed, Friday’s continues to be one of the Room Service’s top performing members. Whilst perhaps the burger wars of 2012 originally left Fridays flailing, their response proved swift and dynamic: modernized for the demands of the 21st century burger gourmand, the immense choice of classics and newbies prompts hard decisions. And as you’ll already no doubt know, there’s more to here than burgers alone.
Another stalwart cut from the Fridays mould, Jeff’s succinct range of burgers cover most desires: from vegan to kimchi to the good ole’ Texas BBQ. The surprise, if there is one, is the standard of the ribs.
