You don’t even have to think twice when asked to name the best Mexican in the capital. Inspired by the ultra-violent films of Danny Trejo, the hardcore interior heaves with machetes, holy shrines, skulls and wire mesh. But if La Sirena looks fab, it tastes even better. Introducing a... Read more

Without wishing to insult anyone, the way I see it, Mexican cuisine doesn’t require all that much thought – at least, not when it comes to executing the pretty basic dishes that ex-pats demand. What it does need, mind you, is a little bit of know-how and a bag... Read more

Already hailed for their operation out in the nether reaches of Mokotów, the Mexican team behind Kolendra have expanded to open up on Okrzei, a shabby street that’s gradually gentrifying. It’s a small, budget-minded interior that feels like it was assembled in a hurry – yet rather than being... Read more

With neither Polish nor English spoken by the staff (at least, not on our visit), the ordering process can be both labored and a little bizarre. Those who survive it are rewarded by commendable quesadillas, interesting chilequilas and quite excellent tacos: hat tip to the Al Pastor. Enjoy them... Read more

From the former, they’ve gone for a mundane line-up that falls way short of the boundary-pushing selections of... Read more

At Zielnik the Insider did the impossible – roar through a nine-course challenge… and enjoy it! Holding the key to all this was a dinosaur portion of ribs and a hefty entrecote. Zbigz Eats combines the talents of a young Texas-raised chef with the glories of the Raduga craft... Read more
Barka Wynurzenie
Putting the bar into barge, bounce across a gangplank to board this summer hit. Beers are provided by the Raduga craft brewery, and food courtesy of Texas raised Zbyszek Gawron: it’s hot, Mexican and perfect for sunset. Barka Wynurzenie Bulwar Grzymały Siedleckiego Read more

Candy floss pink and ocean blue? Remarkably, these colors work thanks to lighting that’s kept dimmed and dark: inspired by 80s Mexico City, Pacyfik looks and feels raw and gritty, hip and happening. Catering to more than just the overspill from Hala Koszyki, this hangout has assumed immediate cult... Read more
Barka Wynurzenie
Drinking on the Wisła no longer means having to settle for mainstream beer served a notch above warm. Leading this (r)evolutionary process is Wynurzenie, a floating bar set on a canopied barge. Bounce across the gangplank to indulge in tap beers from Raduga and a Mexican menu that’s modest... Read more
