If you want to get to know a classic version of Polish cuisine, Warsaw can satisfy your appetite. Wild-game dishes, steak tartare prepared in front of diners, traditional Polish soups, mushroom dishes or variety meats are on the menu of many a Warsaw restaurant.

…or modern?

There is no lack of establishments whose chefs reinterpret traditional Polish fare by providing a new intriguing twist to classic Polish cuisine or typical ingredients. The classic herring can also be an ingredient of nigiri with potatoes. Rather than a stomach-settling herbal tea, camomile can be used to prepare a fragrant and refreshing granita, served alongside fennel-flavoured ice cream. And some cooks can use baby peas to whip up a delicate, dill-flavoured panna cotta.

Each to their own

Impressions of a different sort are afforded by Hala Koszyki whose beautifully restored interior had once housed an urban market hall. At present, the historic structure comprises more than 20 establishments – from elegant restaurants, a seafood place and tapas bar to bistros offering street food from distant corners of the world. The central location of Hala Koszyki makes it a good starting point for further exploration and sightseeing.

An attraction of the summer season is the Night Market, a kind of food fair held at the site of Warsaw’s former Main Railway station. At weekends, the disused platforms come alive with dozens of stalls featuring a variety of delicacies to the sounds of DJ music. The Night Market operates and feeds the hungry late into the night.
