Warsaw has a lot to offer for any demanding palate—from restaurants serving dishes from around the world to those specializing in Italian, French and Hungarian cuisine, to Tex-Mex, fusion cuisine and somewhat more exotic flavors from Lebanon. There are also plenty of elegant sushi places, which have mushroomed in recent years. Fans of Asian cuisine will find a wide selection of decent Chinese, Indian and Thai restaurants as well as many Vietnamese eateries popular for their tasty and inexpensive dishes.

Any visitor to Poland should, naturally, try traditional Polish cuisine with its staple dishes such as the barszcz beetroot soup, zimne nó¿ki pig’s knuckles in aspic, and the famous bigos stew of cabbage, sauerkraut, sausage, mushrooms and a variety of other ingredients. Warsaw has recently gained its own equivalent of the Italian pizzeria with dozens of pierogarnia restaurants, which specialize in Polish pierogi dumplings. You can get them in all variations and sizes with a wide selection of fillings: meat, cabbage and mushrooms, cheese and spinach, or blueberries if you like your pierogi sweet.

If you want to make sure you have tried it all, don’t forget to check out a zapiekanka stand with long rolls cut in half and roasted with cheese and ketchup on top. This Warsaw fast food, to be eaten on the go, dates back to the communist days when global fast-food chains were not yet available in Poland.

Quality dining in Poland has been acknowledged by the famous Michelin guide for gourmands, which has listed some of Poland’s best restaurants since 1997. The latest edition of the Michelin guide recommends 21 restaurants in Warsaw. One of them, Atelier Amaro (www.atelieramaro.pl), is the first Polish restaurant ever to have received a Michelin star in recognition of the chef’s skills, cooking style and use of local ingredients.
