Food & Drink Diary Food & Drink Diary

It’s been a great month to gallivant around the bars and restaurants of Warsaw, with several highs and lows recorded in our ongoing quest to smash the scales and live life to the max…

Firstly, and nothing says June more than a big glass of Pimms. A growing number of bars are serving the quintessential taste of the English summer, and these include Stixx (above) and Hala Koszyki (below). Placed head-to-head, Koszyki just about sneak it.

A little more beery, and a trip to check out Mikkeller’s lunch promotion fares a little less well with measly portioning twinned with a price tag of 35 zlots. Big on quality, but no so big on value.

Onto coffee, and few places impress as much as Cophi, and that’s especially true when the mercury rises – nothing better than their a silky nitro coffee: think the long, deep taste of a non-alcoholic Guinness. Perfect!

Vegan food continues to trend, and nowhere has impressed us more lately than the vegan kebabs in Keboom – they sound revolting but they’re anything but!

You know what, it’s become our favorite kebab to be found in the city.

The city’s appetite for Korean food also shows no sign of abating, and in the form of Powidoki we’ve got an eatery that feels fun, relaxed, nutritious and non-traditional.

Out in Saska K, meanwhile, Francuska 30 has become embedded in local folklore. Few things beat an afternoon drink under their outdoor ceiling of colored umbrellas.

Down the road, and Mięsny fulfill meaty cravings with a brilliant menu and an informal style. Best burger we’ve had since the burger craze peaked five years or so ago.

Sticking to Saska, the cocktails at Biała tick all the seasonal boxes with big summery tastes served in a grassy, verdant garden.

Finally, meal of the month! Hands down, that’s Zoni in the revamped Koneser complex. Brilliant stuff from chef Aleksander Baron, and certainly a contender for the year’s best opening.
