Warsaw – a Paradise for Foodies

Warsaw – a Paradise for Foodies

Recently I was invited to visit Warsaw and of course, I couldn't say no. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen my posts and stories about this wonderful city. The Tourism Board and I teamed up to film a testimonial video about Warsaw. I was able to get to know the city and explore its endless options. I found lots and lots of restaurants offering mouth-watering Polish and international cuisine. Without further ado – here are my favourite eateries:

Breakfast with Kafka

The small and comfy student cafe is located right next to the university and is paradise for those with a lighter wallet. I had breakfast there twice because it was just. so. good! Their menu offers various breakfasts, all prepared freshly, but also snacks, cakes, hot beverages and more. Don't miss it!

Take a stroll around Koszyki

This old warehouse was recently done up and reopened and I immediately fell in love with it: the combination of old and new and the flair is just something else. Here you can find different bars, restaurants but also shops and a book store (they only sell books written in Polish!).

Indulgence with a view at Miejsce

This boat anchors on the Vistula river and offers amazing views of the small bay. It's away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to the city centre. The food too is very delicious.

Finest Polish specialities at the Specjaly Regionalne

Sadly I didn't get to try a lot of different Polish dishes but what I did try just blew me away. The Specjały Regionalne is right on the Nowy Swiat, a busy road in Warsaw. My personal favourite was the potato bacon soup and the duck with roasted apple slices and red turnips. Nooooooooooooooooom!

Do you like beer? I can't praise the sweet honey beer enough!

Burger in centre town @ Dwóch Takich

I went for a walk on my last evening in Warsaw and just couldn't pass this small, adorable café. This place would most definitely become on of my favourite places to eat in the city, would I live there. The team of Dwóch Takich serve burgers as well as cakes, snacks and a selection of beverages.

They also cater to special requests: I had chicken instead of beef and added on halloumi and bacon. Yummy!

Desserts at Pelna Para Na Nowo

Have you ever had chocolate dumplings? Although the restaurant is famous for its savoury dumplings, they also offer amazing desserts. Paired with fresh vanilla sauce, the chocolate dumplings are to die for.
