Hardcore vegans will already know the name – a sensation in Poznań (and now, also, Gdynia), Falla have branched out to finally enter the capital. This they’ve done triumphantly, with both pricing and location combining to keep this venue blocked solid with a muddled mass of students from the uni nearby. Despite this, it’d be wrong to label Falla a student joint – it’s way better than that.
Looking simple, maybe even spartan, crowds flock to this corner unit for recipes inspired by the Middle East and Asia: huge wraps tightly packed with pungent kimchi; generous pans brimming with shakshouka; and an array of hummus in unfamiliar forms – chipotle, coriander, carrot and more. Already globally recognized for its dynamic vegan scene, the launch of Falla feels like another win for Warsaw. And you wouldn’t guess what, even the drinks are smashing – beyond the expected selection of hipster cola and homemade lemonade, find a handy choice of wine and cocktails: the mango whisky sour was seemingly designed with the sweaty summer in mind.
