as it's a short walk from where I live. I loves me some borscht. Anyone eaten there before? Any good?
This thread turned to gold while I took my eyes off the prize.
(maybe) but this place is fabulous
And it's not really Polish either.
it's quite nice,not exactly a traditional Polish experience, but if you like Polish food enough to want to try mildly posh variations on it in a hipster bar setting, it's good. Patio for Old Skool, definitely.
Not sure where it is exactly though
Can someone get anything workable out of that? Maybe involving baked potatoes.

It's probably best I didn't know about this
that would have livened up your university outings!
had too much of the summer fruits one at Off!
E&C shopping centre maybe one of the worst places in London but its pretty easy to forget that when you're digging into a huge plate of Pierogi.
I never went, but we had a menu put through our door. Every single dish comprised of pork, cabbage or potato. Or a mix of all three. I am sure it is delicious though.
really bright and clean.
I love Polish food, eat it a lot, but my experiences of Polish retaurants both in Poland and especially here in the UK are all pretty bad, which is a bit puzzling, because virtually all Polish women are brilliant cooks.
I've tried explaining to people before, but there seems to be a very specific type of Polish restaurant owner; they seem to be couples who come to the UK and sort of fall into the "let's start our own business" tip.
Also, Polish cuisine in Poland is really dying out. There's a massive generation gap there, fast food's very quickly become almost as popular as it is here and in other major countries, and home cooking's very much only a family and/or older generation thing. If you go to a restaurant in Poland, it will inevitably be a bad Italian, their idea of English, or a weird mixture of world cuisine. I don't remember ever coming across just a comfortable, homely, family-ran resturant selling hearty Polish food.
Idk, i might be wrong. Maybe there's an amazing Polish restaurant somewhere, just i've never heard of one. Given that there are a couple of million Poles here now, there really should be a few.
* I've generalised at least three times here.
but most importantly, you've wasted your own time.
Nice food and you get to feel like you've stepped into a 1974 time warp. Awesome.
they sell three diffent types of vodka: room temperature, cold, and very cold. Cheap as chips, though not exactly super vibe.
