Blog 2 July 2018 0

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...
Keboom

Keboom

Restaurants 7 June 2018 1

Warsaw’s vegan revolution continues to take the city’s foodies down unexpected paths: but the biggest surprise of the lot, that’s just got to be Keboom. Offering out vegan kebabs from small cartoon clad units in Gwardii and Koszyki, what sounds like an utterly revolting idea is actually anything but....
Notes: Koszyki Street Food Market
As far as Hala Koszyki goes, I belong to the camp that views it as a bit of a missed opportunity. Pitted against the great markets of Europe, you see it for what it is: too polished, too sanitized and, frankly, too mainstream. For all that, the last couple...
Ramyun

Ramyun

Restaurants 30 May 2018 0

Replacing Koszyki’s disappointingly watered-down version of a famers’ market is a new street food section that already looks highly promising. Gathering about eight or nine operators together, highlights include Ramyun, a small stall specializing in Korean bites such as kimchi, ramyun noodles and baguettes filled with bulgogi. Looks great,...
ĆMA by Mateusz Gessler
Open round-the-clock, Ćma has rescued the city’s night owls from the evil clutches of the center’s grisly kebab dens. Set against an edgy, moth-themed interior designed by guerilla artist Tomasz Górnicki, this on-trend nightspot elevates late night dining to new heights with a menu that involves modernized Polish delicacies...
Kiełba w Gębie

Kiełba w Gębie

Going Out 11 January 2018 0

Though no more than a glorified stall, KwG have earned their stripes on account of a menu that pushes grill food to the fore. That’s all well and good, but what elevates them above the other units in both Gwardii and Koszyki is a beer offer that rises well...
Central Bar

Central Bar

Going Out 2 December 2017 0

The beer (supplied by Bierhalle) is fine, the cocktails are getting better, and the atmosphere is cranked to max: you get the buzzy sense that you’re in the middle of something that’s captured Warsaw’s imagination – the natural focal point of Hala Koszyki, the ever-stretching Central Bar has been...
Bierhalle

Bierhalle

Going Out 10 April 2017 0

When the Bierhalle chain first launched over a decade back they were seen as saviors of local brewing. The craft beer revolution of the last five years has seen that opinion reassessed, and while the formulaic brews are a step above the big macro-breweries they fall considerably short of...
Kreperia

Kreperia

Restaurants 10 April 2017 0

Though slightly hidden from the rest of Koszyki, this relative sense of seculsion works in Kreperia’s favor: it’s a place you’re happy in which to hang about in. Designed to slot straight into the whole neo-industrial backdrop, this good-looking space has sparked a debate among pancake fans as to...
Kiełba w Gębie
Despite appearing as little more than a small unit in the midst of the general furore of Hala Koszyki, Kiełba w Gębie have done enough to lever themselves above their immediate neighbors. Thanks for that go to a menu filled with the kind of meaty snacks you yearn for...
