The new food court at Świebodzki stationed we reported on last month has now opened to the public.
Named Hala Świebodzki, it is a little different to Gastro Nocki and Peron 3 – two night markets that previously occupied the grounds of the old station.
The most significant change is the fact that the venue will run 7 days a week, and rather than using food trucks, each vendor has their own on-site kitchen. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available at the food court too, and you can sit wherever you like no matter where you order from.
A number of names familiar to foodies in Wrocław are present at the hall. Panda Ramen and HulThai provide Asian cuisine, while there’s no prizes for guessing what Projekt Pizza and Candy Pancakes offer. On top of that, there’s vegan cuisine from Falla and meat feasts from Meatologia.
You can check out the menus from all the participating venues here.
The hall is open from Monday to Wednesday from noon until midnight, from Thursday to Saturday from noon till 4 am, and on Sundays between 5pm and midnight.
Having checked the place out on Saturday, the hall genuinely looks like a cracking concept with positive prospects. The shape of the hall really seems to send itself to a food court, and the venue will also go down a storm in winter.
That said, those still concerned about the coronavirus situation would be advised to visit Hala Świebodzki at a later date. Although outdoor is seating available, there is no table service. That means you’ll have to enter the main hall to order, and at peak times the indoor space can be full of people happily chatting away. This definitely fosters a superb atmosphere, but is also an obvious coronavirus hazard.
