It looks promising enough, with dark woods and images of paddy fields mixing with the reassuring clatter of an open kitchen, and so it proves with the arrival of the food: light but lively spring rolls; steaming bowls of pho; and thinly sliced strips of pretty pink beef. Then,...

No longer something treated with suspicion and disdain (Warsaw veterans still wince at the memory of the budget food cabins that were once so endemic around town), few cuisines have been rehabilitated in quite the same way as Vietnamese. And along with the raised and recovered profile has come...

Ukim

Restaurants 20 July 2018 0

Though not as high profile as Warsaw’s other gastro streets, Chłodna’s gradual resurgence has been no less spectacular. But fine dining and fancy wine bars aside, it’s actually the more standard venues that make the area feel so complete. Take Ukim, a cheerful joint decorated with steel Tolix chairs...
Review: Vietnamka
Divey but lively, diners step down into Vietnamka to find a shouty little lair of mint green walls and wobbly wooden tables. Infused with a gentle sense of chaos (drinks after mains, mains before starters), there’s a certain charm at work that feels authentic and convincing. As for the...
Viet Street Food Mordor
From humble beginnings as a pokey food truck, Viet Street Food have grown to become a local phenomenon. First came a sit-down venture in Saska, now another venue has been launched in the faceless office wastelands of Mordor. Compensating for the cheerless surrounds and bare bones design is a...

A steamy, crowded basement houses Wietnamka, a modest-looking place of wobbly benches and mint-colored walls. Despite the aesthetic shortcomings, it’s earned a name as the most authentic Vietnamese restaurant in town, and as such seats get snapped up quickly. Generous portioning, budget prices and the aromatic scent of imported...

Despite its substantial Vietnamese population, Warsaw’s relationship with the food of Vietnam hasn’t always been easy. But the worm is turning, and that’s thanks to places like this. A busy, family-run joint, OMP’s specific claim to fame is what many are terming the best and most authentic pho in...
Viet Street Food Bistro
What started as a mere food truck has evolved into a proper sit down space. Recgonized as the source of the best Vietnamese chow this country has ever seen, find steaming bowls of pho and fabulous banh mi baguettes on sale. Viet Street Food Bistro ul. Królowej Aldony 5/2
Food & Drink: Fokim
Fokim does what other bars daren’t. I mean, where else can you go to the toilet and find a scantily-clad Korean girl jiggling about in a titillating manner? Okay, so she’s on an LCD screen, but nevertheless, it’s a bold design statement that sets the tone nicely. Yet as...
Viet Street Food
In spite of the large ethnic community living in the capital, Vietnamese food doesn’t enjoy the most stellar of reputations in Warsaw – largely, that’s down to lingering memories of the proliferation of cheap little cabins that once hawked all kinds of grim, mysterious offerings. Viet Street Food is...
