Finally! Summer has arrived again and transformed Warsaw into a lively city full of terraces, green parks, outdooor activities and happy people. One of the best places to serve your club music appetite during this season is by far the Wisła river. Read all about our summer hotspots!
The most typical Polish dish and loved by all people in Poland must be by far: Pierogi. This Italian ravioli lookalike of dough, filled with meat, mushroom, cabbage or anything you like mixture tastes deliciously and is served in every Polish styled restaurant. We spent a few hours on a saturday morning being drilled by chef Michał Piosik in the ways of the Polish pierogi.
Craft beers are immensely popular in Warsaw, but there are not many places where a great choice on tap is combined with such a great atmosphere as Cuda na Kiju!
Visit the best market of Warsaw! At Hala Mirowska you can see, smell and participate in the real Poland. A must visit to meet typical Poles and their food.
After a few weeks we are back with a new restaurant, U Chłopaków. Not only the convenient 5 minute walk from our home is attractive about this place!
Life’s short… eat cookies! Normally our favorite places are not located in the Old Town as they are often a bit commercial and touristic. But To Lubię, a cute and small coffee/tearoom in the heart of the Old Town you should not miss.
KasKrut, a Polish play on the french ‘casse croûte’ – meaning snack or petit-restaurant, sure represents one of the most interesting food experiences so far in Warsaw. KasKrut describes itself as a Cantine / Food Bar, we however would like to refer to it as a ‘gastronomic and creative must visit experience’.
To our own surprise we just realized that our posts on vivawawa.com so far have been about clubs, coffee, bars and museums. Unacceptable of course when considering the infinite number of great (and affordable) restaurants in Warsaw and the time we seem to be spending in them! So, let’s start with: Bibenda
Not every building in Warsaw has been razed to the ground during WWII. The narrow Próżna street is the only street of the Jewish ghetto whose both sides survived the war. In one of the historic buildings, currently being renovated, you will find a tiny and cozy café named, surprisingly, Café Próżna.
Poland was once home of the largest Jewish community of the world, but the holocaust had a devastating impact on the lives of many Jews. Polin aims to honor those who died, by remembering how they lived and showing the rich civilization they created in the past thousand years. A highly recommended visit.
