Wrocław's culinary scene is constantly evolving as venues come and go. Here's our latest summary of new places in town:
The 1st venue on our list this month has a secret location; guests are not informed where the restaurant is until they make a booking.
Depending on your point of view, this strategy is either a tedious hipster fad or a genius marketing ploy (or perhaps both actually).
A photo of Nafta Neo Bistro's menu shows the majority of main courses are priced between 25-30zł. Most dishes seem to be interesting incarnations featuring simple ingredients in the lead role.
Seafood is all the rage right now and the latest place to jump on the bandwagon is SeeSea Food Truck, run by a finalist of Poland's Hell's Kitchen tv show.
Options include a seafood wrap and salad with fried seafood, while they also offer a variety of chips and dips. Follow their Facebook page to get the latest on their location.
Could you murder a kebab longer than your entire arm? If so, Moon Kebab is the place for you!
Other than that however, it's difficult to find anything special or unusual about this place. As a prominent local food blogger has pointed out, they've set up shop right near to the popular Sultan Kebab. It looks like a tall order to take snare some business from them, so it will be interesting to see how Moon Kebab get on.
One of the trends that's been evident in Wrocław in recent years is the expansion of successful local cafes and restaurants. Etno Cafe, Bema Cafe, Polish Lody, Pasibus, Bratwursty, Do Jutra, Shrimp House and Chleboteka are just some of the local businesses that have opened new locations in recent years.
One of the latest venues to go in this direction is Frytki+Sos. The hole-in-the-wall take-away on św. Antoniego has been selling large quantities of fries and dips all year round for some time now. They've now launched a near identical branch on the other side of the Rynek on Oławska street.
Another culinary business enjoying success is Lviv, who've now opened their first city centre location (on Włodkowica street).
The Ukrainian restaurateurs now have 3 venues, something that's been made possible thanks to their winning formula of good, honest food and reasonable prices.
Although not a new venue as such (as it was open last year), it's also worth mentioning that Forma Plynna Beach Bar is back up and running after the winter break. Located on a pleasant riverside spot not far from Grunwaldzki Bridge, it's one of a few beach bars that have sprung back to life recently.
Other places worth a mention:
- The Partynice district has another cafe in the shape of Zwycięska 9
