New Places To Check Out This September

Wrocław’s culinary scene is constantly evolving as venues come and go. Here’s our latest summary of new places in town.

Kopytkarnia

In recent times there arguably hasn’t been too much in the way of creativity when it comes to new restaurant openings in Wrocław. It seems that every other new place that springs up is a pizzeria.

Fortunately however, this month we have a number of intriguing spots in town keen to offer something a little different.

One such place is Kopytkarnia on pl. Bema, which obviously specialises in kopytka – mini Polish potato dumplings not unlike gnocchi.

The eatery’s Facebook page shows that they have no shortage of ideas for pairing Kopytka. As well as traditional meat combos, they’ve also created some complementary soups and even a dessert.

Hats-off to these guys for coming up with something new – the more variety we have here, the better.


Biggy

As we mentioned earlier, Wrocław is saturated with pizzerias. Even so, most newcomers to the pizzeria market have sought to replicate the Neapolitan-style pizzerias popularised by Piec Na Szewskiej and others.

Not many have made an attempt to go to the other extreme and make mega-thick, deep-pan style pizza. That is, until now.

Having already made a solid Neapolitan-style pizzeria, the people behind Iggy Pizza on Szewska street have just opened a ‘Detroit-style’ pizza joint next door. Named ‘Biggy’, the casual restaurant also offers burgers and a modest selection of craft beers.

Naturally, the place will offend Italian pizza purists. That said, people do have different tastes and perhaps Biggy could be onto something here.


Pan Precel

Another new concept to hit town comes courtesy of Pan Precel, who have just opened their first city-centre precel bakery (their first branch is located in Nowy Dwór). 

The concept is rather similar to the Pączkarnias you see in town. Everything is baked fresh on site, while orders are taken on the street at the window.

Pan Precel naturally offer a variety of precels covered with different toppings, as well a precels stuffed with cheese and salami.

Having secured a great spot near the Rynek on Ruska street, Pan Precel could easily become a hit if they have a good enough product.


Lazy Boyz

Late-August isn’t the best time to be opening a venue with no outdoor seating area. Clearly that hasn’t put of Lazy Boyz though, who have opened an Asian street-food kiosk in front of Komandor Market.

Prices here are relatively cheap, however it remains to be seen if the quality is a match for the city’s more popular Asian haunts. Lazy Boyz also offer delivery, which they must be relying on to get them through the tough winter months on the horizon.


Takoyaki Asian Street Food

Wrocław has a healthy number of Japanese restaurants in town, however most of them tend to specialise in either Sushi or Ramen. Outdoor street-food venue Takoyaki is one of the exceptions.

Currently parked on the grass to the side of EPI market, Takoyaki is named after the food-container’s main culinary offering. For those not familiar with Takoyaki, they are battered balls typically stuffed with seafood or meat.


Kasprowicza24

Last but not least, we have a casual eatery that isn’t actually new at all. Kebab and falafel restaurant Kasprowicza24 opened near the Muslim cultural centre way back in March, but somehow escaped our attention. 

This humble fast-food joint got the thumbs up from Wrocław’s most popular food blogger last month, and certainly looks like one of the better middle-eastern places in town.
