KoreaTown Rest

Restaurants 19 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...

Otto Pompieri A revelationary new find with NYC-style pizza and an interior that’s retro Little Italy. With mood and food in perfect alignment, it’s a welcome addition to Warsaw’s pizza sector.

Positive transformations aren’t just confined to Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares: after a dreadful start characterized by bland, claggy dishes, this Korean restaurant has spun a U-turn that’s left the competition reeling. The menu is daunting in size, but contains wildly interesting finds such as a streaky bacon stir fry, spicy...

I’m no expert on it, but thus far myself and Korean cuisine have done a good job of clicking: strong flavours, big spices and plenty of bite and crunch. And meat – let’s not forget that the Koreans sure know how to handle a grill. So what’s not to...
