Wrocław’s culinary scene is constantly evolving as venues come and go. Here’s our latest summary of new places in town.
First up is the latest attempt to bring tapas to Wrocław, Mercado Tapas Bistro on Bogusławskiego street.
So far Wrocław’s various tapas bars and Spanish restaurants have failed to produce anything even vaguely authentic, so here’s hoping this new place can buck the trend. Going by the photos on Mercado Tapas Bistro’s Facebook page, there does appear to be a desire to source true Spanish ingredients and include some classic tapas on the menu.
Provided they get it right, this could a great addition to Wrocław’s gastronomic map.
Next is one of the most talked about venues to arrive in Wrocław for some time, Falla Wrocław.
The vegan restaurant has recently been setting Instagram alight with its colourful spreads composed of olives, falafel, arabic bread, hummus, salads and dips.
Reviews from local food bloggers have so far all been on the positive side, so it looks like this is a place that will be lapped up by vegans and fans of middle-eastern food. The restaurant is conveniently located nearby the city’s main train station, making it ideal for anyone looking to grab something to eat before they depart Wrocław.
Wrocław’s craft beer scene now has a new multitap outside the city centre in the shape of Kraftownia Muchobór, located in the newly constructed Mińska 58 shopping mall.
The new bar and restaurant gives the residents of Muchobór the chance to drink some decent beer on tap without having to venture into the old town. The beer comes straight from a craft brewery in Legnica owned by the same company.
Various burgers and grilled meats seem to dominate the menu according to the restaurant’s photos on Facebook. It has to be said the images don’t look the most appealing though.
Dziekanat, which has sprung up in the Grunwaldzki district, promises to serve “modern, urban cuisine at its very best”. On top of that, they also serve breakfast from 9am.
On the face of it, the place does look a touch like a copycat version of Dinette. However, to be fair Dziekanat do have a number of their own interesting compositions on the menu – so it would be both harsh and premature to label them as rip-off merchants. The kaszanka pierogi with horseradish cream in particular looks very appetizing.
Wrocław’s once infamous ‘Bermuda Triangle’ district has gone from strength to strength in recent times. Now the area has another interesting venue thanks to the arrival of Alternatywy 4 on Komuny Paryskiej street.
All of the cafe’s cakes and other produce are entirely gluten free, dairy free and meat free.
Last but not least we have a name that’s been a solid part of the city’s food scene for some time now – Shrimp House.
The city’s first shrimp bar business has expanded considerably in recent years having enjoyed consistent success. Their latest branch on Wita Stwosza street is larger and cozier than the one they started out with on Świętego Mikołaja, allowing diners to enjoy their seafood in greater comfort.
