#1 U Kucharzy

Where: 7 Ossolinskich St. (Europejski Hotel), Warsaw 00-071
What: Lunch
Notable: We found ourselves, as with others sitting IN the kitchen as chefs were preparing meals. The smells, the sounds and the visual delights of old wooden chopping blocks wheeled around with platters of yummy goodness brought all our senses to life. If there is one place you need to eat at in Warsaw, it is U Kucharzy.
Price: Very reasonable!
 

Chilled beet root soup

This was one of the reasons we fell in love with cold soup. The smooth sweet taste of beet was subdued by a perfect proportion of cream and of course with any traditional Polish dish, there was dill. All of which mixed together for a refreshing and mouthwatering starter.

Pierogies

They were lightly browned and topped with a generous serving of caramelized onions. Comfort food at its finest! Every bite brought the taste of fresh parsley, light cheese filling together with the slightly sour chewy shell… brilliant!
