Best mead in Wrocław

If you ask me, the best pub in Wrocław is definitely Miodosytnia. It stands out among others because their main specialty is honey. You can either add it to a regular beer or preferably order a plain mead in forms of Dwójniak, Trójniak, or Półtorak. If those names don’t ring a bell yet, then you should definitely visit the pub located in Wrocław on Kiełbaśnicza 6.

Apart from great meads, you’ll be positively by their interior design. Hexagonal shapes on the walls and dominant yellow color resemble beehives.
It’s a great place for expats as well. If you want to try some characteristic polish cuisine, you shouldn’t limit yourself to dumplings and bigos.

Apart from that, Miodosytnia is a pub with board games. Whether on a date or a larger party with friends, you will find something suitable and entertaining. Their quality is still good and there’s a quite wide selection of titles.

Wroclaw from the rooftops

Wroclaw from the rooftops

Wroclaw from the rooftops

Best places to see Wroclaw from the rooftops.

First two weeks in Wroclaw made me understand one thing: this city is for life. Comfortable happy life. And for work. Not for your career, but for stable work.  Everything here is so tiny, so calm. When you go to the main square of Wroclaw, it seems like you got into a fairy tale – all the houses look like they’re made of gingerbread.  But have you ever seen Wroclaw from the rooftops? I propose you 3 rooftops to visit, while you’re in Wroclaw.

1. Sky Tower – number 1 for seeing Wroclaw from the rooftops

Sky Tower is the highest building in Poland. It’s 258 m in height, and there’s a viewpoint on the 49th floor. The view is amazing, this place is worth to visit, even if you stay in Wroclaw just for two days.

Location: Powstańców Śląskich street, 95

Ticket: 12-16 zl

Open hours: 8 am to 4 pm

P.S. Don’t worry, they have the fast elevators, so it’ll not take too much time to go up there.

P.S.S. You can have a cup of coffee or tea on the top.

2. Mostek Pokutnic – number 2 in my list, if you want to see Wroclaw from the rooftops.

This place is in the main square of Wroclaw, named Rynek, and I think, it’s a very romantic one. Because you’ll see the city not from the tower, but from the bridge! However, be ready to climb the narrow spiral staircase. And believe me, you’ll not be disappointed.

Location; Rynek

Ticket: 5 zl

Open hours: 9 am to 5 pm

3. Hotel Monopol – my number 3 in the list, where you can see Wroclaw from the rooftops

This hotel is situated in the heart of the city, next to the main square. I’m not telling about its suits, but about its summer terraces, which are surrounded by the Gothic church, with views on the Opera House and the National Forum of Music. Also there’s a bar, where you can drink your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Location: Heleny Modrzejewskiej street, 2

Ticket: free entrance, but you need to order something

Open hours: 12 pm to 11 pm

P.S. The only minus of this place – it’s closed during winter times.

Some tips:

  • if you have time to visit a few towers, it’s better to do this at different times of the day – you’ll see different Wroclaw!
  • think about your clothes. Remember, it can be cold, windy, etc on the top.
  • prize yourself with a cup of tea or hot chocolate, when you reach the top.
  • if you have any doubts whether it’s worth – leave your doubts! I guarantee, you’ll enjoy each moment.

Wroclaw from the rooftops

And you’ll see Wroclaw right in the palm of your hand.

Where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw – chapter one

best coffee in Wroclaw

My little coffee-journey in Wroclaw started at Café Targowa and ETNO. I will show you step by step not only where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw, but also how to drink it. Coffee is not only an aromatic hot drink in a cup. It means culture, making new friends or meeting your colleagues and gives you time and calmness just for you.

  • a little hidden coffee-cosmos
  • a good opportunity meeting new people

  • daily fresh home-made cakes

  • Cold filtered
  • French

News:

  • they are starting to roast their own coffe
  • new coffee bar will open in 2018

My journey started uninspected in Hala Targowa

Finally a friend of mine from Berlin visited me in Wroclaw for three days. For me the best reason going out for drinks, lunch and coffee! Of course my polish kindness forced me to go with him everywhere, show him everything and also put every traditional polish dish, desert, candies and drinks in his mouth.

Rather  both of us are huge fans of traditional flew markets and market halls, where you can buy a lot of different trash and indeed little things you can drop in your mouth and are making you fat. After class I finally invited him to “Hala Targowa”, for groceries shopping and some home-cooked lunch. The hall was colorful filled with fruits, vegetables, flowers, candies…a little (expensive) food paradise with polish and also international products.

Find the little coffee bar next to “Ksero”

After we had lunch my body screamed for a coffee. And there it was! My coffee-radar led me directly to the other side of the hall, to the teeny wooden  bar called “Cafe Targowa” near “Ksero”.

It seems a bit rath and ready.  I counted five stools in front, where three people already chatted with the barista. When people are asking you, where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw – right here! I had a really balanced flat-white. Aromatic strong espresso roast, full-bodied with lightly flavor of chocolate.  On top, a well done (not overheated!) perfect cream – you will love it.

Focused on Coffee

That´s how you drink here: A microscopic bar, enough space for one dimpled, diminutive blonde barista and five guest in front of it. But don’t worry. If you haven´t found a seat, in the market hall are tables placed too.

For sure you will find here a perfectly prepared cup of coffee in Wroclaw, if espresso, hand-or chemex filtered, french- or aeropress preparation.  Furthermore you can buy a piece of their daily home-made cake, coffee-beans, grounded coffee and well-chosen equipment for any way of preparation. From a golden aero-press or filter to their own merchandise products – this place is the answer for where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw as well as where to buy a useful and approved gift.

The atmosphere and service

Furthermore what I love about this coffe-cosmos in Targowa Hall is the chatty atmosphere. The small place induces to conversation with all guests and the barista.

In opposite to other coffee places, while drinking my flat-white the barista told me about their new plans creating their own coffee blend and also organizing workshops from Janauary again. The workshops will include everything what a coffee lover wants to know: What kind of coffee beans they use, how to choose blends, what to blend  and different coffee-preparation as well.

My conclusion for Cafe Targowa

Probably small chatty places are not everyone´s cup of tea, but I appreciate it.  Mostly smartphone interrupt our deeper communication, indeed this is our society we live in. Still you can find treasures like Café Targowa, where people understand that drinking coffee means to drink it in a pleasant company- that’s one of the best coffee in Wroclaw.

For people on the way to the central train- or busstation

Before I entered the bus to Berlin, I wanted to work on my papers with a great cup of coffee in my hand and may have some warm late breakfast. ENTO Wroclaw 101 was on the way to the central bus station. Indead, a good located place for people who are in rush or have the need not to work in the office for a while.

A tasty shakshuka and flavourful flat white – I can highly recommend!

Best coffee in Wroclaw

Due to my hangover I needed something warm and healthy to repair my wodka-damaged body. For sure after a red beet shakshuka and a flatwihte i didn´t have to suffer long.

Finally my flat white was served plainly in a glas. A strong, full bodied taste with a lightly dark chocolate-hazelnut flavor. After only five minutes my shakshuka was brought to me. It was served nicely on a hot steel pan with fresh flatbread. A well balanced dish, which I really enjoyed.  Of course, before drawing final conclusions about the best coffee in Wroclaw, it is appropriate to attend the four ETNO cafe´s. 

My conclusion: Looks like a coworking space, but is not made for business-meetings

Sadly, the wifi-hasn´t worked, which is a big disadvantage for workaholics! I never understood locations, which are looking like big coworking spaces, but aren´t exactly. So, if a nice and well-known coffee is situated in the middle of an office area, why is there any internet connection? Aren´t they interested on running their business?!

Sure, on the one hand I am looking for the best coffee in Wroclaw, but on the other hand, if I would look for a place where one can feel at ease, I would prefere small cute café´s like Cocofli or Café Targowa instead of ENTO.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best korean restaurants in Wroclaw

best korean restaurants in Wroclaw

How to find best korean restaurants in Wroclaw?

best korean restaurants in Wroclaw

It is easy with me, because I am from Korea. My name is Duckjae.  First time when I came to Wroclaw I wanted to find best korean restaurants in Wroclaw because I love korean food and my family also. I asked my friends and they helped  me. Just me right now I help you. This is my favourirte choice:

Kokoja – I recomend you very much

Kokoja  is one of the best korean restaurants in Wroclaw. They have:

  • Drinks: Water, juice, coke, soju * Soju is very popular alcoholic drink in Korea. Most of people drink soju, which is seems to be wodka of Poland.
  • Soups: Czampong, Tempura Udong, Kake Udong *These are with nudles
  • Menu: Teriyaki * each from  chicken, Tofu, Salmon, Duck./ Bulgogi, Donkatsu, Fried Pork, Chilly Chicken, Sweet Chicken, Spice Pork, Spice Kalmary, Hemuul Bokumbab, Kim-chi Bokumbab
  • Cost: Most of cuisine are from 32 zl to 45 zl
  • Opening days : From Tuesday to Sunday
  • Opening hours: From 12:00 to 22:00
  • Adress: Ul. Oltaszyska 93e, Wroclaw

I pay there only this money for all lunch, so it isn’ too much. Plus  you can  order sushi in Kokoja but it cost more than korean menu because fresh fishes and shrimps are very expensive. When you visit Kokoja, you can see korean people and people from Wroclaw there. It is very good place for Polish people and also for expats in Wroclaw.

Imone – my choice from best korean restaurants in Wroclaw

If  you like a food which your korean grandmother cook, I recommend you korean restaurant Imone. The chef is old woman who can’t speak polish as well as English but only in korea. I hope there is Poland clerk there. You may feel like your mother or your grandmother cook for you.  If you want to drink water, just say ” Please water”. It is for free.

  • Drink: Water (free), Coke, Juice, Soju
  • Menu: Kimbab, pierozki, Ramjon,  Bulgogi, Czeyukbogym                   Dzadzangmjon, Bibimbab, Czolmjon
  • Soup: Dzampong, Somjon, Kamdzasudzebi, Kalguksu
  • Cost : It cost more less than Kokoja
  • Opening day: From Monday to Saturday
  • Opening hours: From 11:00 to 19:00
  • Adress: Wawrzyniaka 9, 11-400 Wroclaw

Why I will tell you to  introduce Korean food?

Korean foods are good for your health. These are make from vegetable. Some foods are made from meat but are low in fat. I recommend  to use chopsticks because it is good for your health. Kimchi contain a lot vitamin C, so it is so healthy!
