The Fab Five: Back In Biz!
Talk about rotten luck – as unfortunate as the lockdown was for Warsaw’s more established hangouts, it came as even tougher news for the newbies yet to truly establish themselves. Now reopened, we present a fab five that were just gaining traction before you-know-what happened. Let the summer belong...
Review: Koreanka Grill
You could argue that no other person has influenced the direction of the city’s Asian course more than restaurateur Yeunsu Lee. Already responsible for concepts such as Vietnamka and Koreanka, her latest operation builds on the success of the latter whilst introducing the joys of the Korean grill to...

Koreanka Grill

Restaurants 19 August 2019 0

Perhaps no-one person has shaped Warsaw’s Asian path more than restaurateur Yeunsu Lee. Now, for her latest concept, she explores the pleasures of the Korean grill, a group slanted affair in which diners heap marinated bulgogi, rib-eye steak and Mangalica pork underneath overhead heaters. Complimented by bitsy starters, everything...

Though best known as Warsaw’s principal source of craft beer, Nowogrodzka is starting to show it’s more than just a one-trick pony. Helping the food angle along is this newbie, a tiny Korean joint with an even smaller menu. So far so good, with the bulgogi arguably being the...

Review: The Cool Cat TR
The Place Interior-wise, you’re looking at a hip, edgy venue that offsets all the concrete colors with punches of contemporary art and waterfalls of greenery that tumble over the windows. The overt hipness is reflected by a crowd that’s heavy on tattoos, piercings and odd urban style: you know...

Set in the cool white cube that is the Museum of Modern Art, you’d think that Powidoki’s riverfront location would make it a highly seasonal destination. Not so. Though the menu’s brief and the background highly casual, the Korean choices feel more sophisticated and complex than anywhere else, a...
The Cool Cat TR
Spurred by the stonking success of their Powisle venture, the Cool Cat team have expanded to the center, slotting straight into the long, narrow space occupied till recently by Delikatesty Esencja. Interior-wise, you’re looking at a hip, edgy venue that offsets all that concrete cool with punches of contemporary...

Ramyun

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,...

Blog 29 December 2017 0

Concealed down a Mokotów side street, KoreaTown’s menu is brief, succinct and really rather special. Begin with the bossam (braised pork belly wrapped in perilla leaves), before advancing on towards the Korean-style deep-fried chicken. Accompanied by little dishes of kimchi, rice and God knows what else, it’s an experience...
