Polish cuisine is definitely something that tourists enjoy while visiting the capital of Poland. Dumplings, sausages, żurek is a must…the traditional cuisine has a lot to offer to meat eaters and vegetarians. What about vegans? Do not worry. According to happycow.com Warsaw is the 3rd most vegan friendly city in the world. More than 50 vegan (!) restaurants in Warsaw is impressive. You do not have to worry about the variety either.
You can explore middle east at Mango Vegan Street Food, Bejrut, Vegan na Moliera or Tel Aviv where you can try not only delicious falafels, but choose between shakshuka and other delicacies.
In mood for some Asian cuisine? Search no more, visit one od totally vegan sushi places Youmiko or Edamame, where you can get much more than rolls with cucumbers or avocadoes. Want to try some fake meat Asian meals? Visit Loving Hut, where you will definitely fall in love with the soups (try the Thai!). You can also visit the other side of the river and eat a delicious, thick vegan ramen in Vegan Ramen Shop (tiny place with huge potential!). Our current staff favourite is Vege Kitchen (try the Thai crispy cutlets!).
Cucina Italiana? Then your choice is Leonardo Verde with their fantastic pizzas and lasagnas. Not in the move to get out of the hostel? Just order one at Night Pizza Factory.
Not sure what to eat? Try some fusion cuisine places such as Vegemama (inspired by Asia) or Vegelabb (Budda Bowls inspired by various cultures) or Vege Miasto close to the Old Town with their delicious lunches and desserts. If you have a sweet tooth don’t hesitate to go to Lokal dela Krem (they have ice cream!). Here and in Physalis you have a chance to try best cakes, cookies and other tasty sweetmeats.
Best vegan breakfast in town? After the hearty breakfasts in Nancy Lee you will not have problems with climbing to the 30th floor of the Palace of Culture and Science, you won’t even think of taking an elevator!
Don’t miss out Krowarzywa – first vegan burger place in Warsaw. Already a legend! They also offer vegan kebabs and hot dogs. Who said that vegan food must be healthy? On the other hand my favourite vegan burger place would be Chwast Food it’s smaller and not that popular but somehow cozier.
After your senses travelled around the whole world, relax and enjoy Polish food. In Lokal Vegan Bistro you have a chance to eat “schabowy” (cutlet) just like grandma used to make, with potatoes and seasonal salad. They also have famous zapiekanka in vegan version. In Vege Bistro try vegan “kaszanka” (blood sausage). My friends say it really tastes similar to the real one. From the main courses you can choose between pierogies, cutlets and fried “duck” or my favourite Hungarian potato cake with stew and cream.
