vegan food in Wroclaw

In the last few years, Wrocław has changed instantly . There are a lot of new bars, pubs and even vegan shop that have opened up. Not only the number of vegetable spots, but also their diversity and the exceptional quality of served food delights. Veganism is getting more and more fashonable nowadays. Here are a few suggestions that any potential customer can confirm in the belief that it is worth looking into these places because of this type of food.

The first suggestion is food at the Żyzna restaurant on Nożownicza 37 Street in Wrocław. This is a top of the class vegetable bistro- let’s try to imagine that. The cousine surprises even more with creative, inspiring and refined meals in the smallest detail. Every two weeks you can find seasonal dishes with the best ingredients. In the menu you can find: marinated watermelon (in summer); dumplings with plums, thyme and tofu (in autumn) and steaks of celery and potato puree (in winter). This is one of the most unique places in Wroclaw and even all over Poland. The only drawback is better to come to Żyzna ealier or before coming to call, because in the evening there may not be all the dishes. It presents that the local food is delicious and also fresh.

Another but also strong suggestion is Wilk Syty on Trzebnicka 3 we Wrocławiu. This is a newly created place. In a short time thousands of Wroclawians became addicted to each other. Here you will find classic dishes that have been vegan and then flavored with an amazing imagination’s staff. It’s a great place for dinner with parents. It’s possible that especially fathers and uncles can change their minds after visit in this kind of place. The local dishes from seitan are Wroclaw export: vegan bacon, meatballs, burgers, and even greaves on potato dumplings.In spite of meals, customers can eat here some of the best vegan cakes in Poland – a rolling poppy seed cake with meringue.

The last proposition is Vega Restaurant which is located on Rynek 27a we Wrocławiu. This place can not be missing in any vegan guide around Wroclaw and should be heard about it all over Poland. This is the oldest vegetarian bar in Poland, which has been operating since 1987 in the middle of the Town Hall in Wroclaw! As if these attractions were not enough, VEGA changed the decoration four years ago and became a completely vegan place and still feeds just as well. At lunchtime you can see a lot of workers and employees of the Town Hall, who come to visit. The menu on the ground floor is close to grandma’s dinners and also traditional cuisine of milk bars.There are also meaty soups, salads and compote on the menu. Depending on what you want, you can sit either on the ground floor or on the first floor.

Where to eat the best Ramen in Wroclaw – PANda Ramen

But…What is Ramen?

Due the international popularity of this unique Japanese soup in past few years, It became easier to find restaurants that serve this special. Right now, every big city has at least one restaurant that serve it. Ramen quickly became so called “comfort food” due its unique combination of rich soup and almost a full meal in one bowl. Every Ramen is different, all depends on the ingredients that you use for it. Broth can be rich and meaty, light and delicate or even completely vegan, all depends on the way you prepare it. Another thing that can differentiate ramens is what “floats” in your soup. Every ramen shop can use completely different pasta, some of them are even making their own. Also, they can serve different toppings on their soup, so it opens doors of countless combinations of tastes.

Ramen in Wroclaw? Where?

Here in Wroclaw we have at lest few interesting places to visit if you want to try Ramen. But this time I’m gonna focus on one specific place, which I find the best for first-time ramen experience.

First Place I would recommend to everybody who want to try it for the first time, it also my favorite place from all, it’s PANda Ramen. It’s almost perfect kind of westernized Ramen shop. First, they serve few kinds of Ramen here. On their standard menu they serve 3 kinds of soup, rich (on meat base), light (also on meat base but different) and Vegan. Besides that they have 3 other kinds of ramen soup that are serve in specific days of the week. For example, on Tuesday and Wednesday they have “PANda curry” which is spicy, curry based broth. Every Soup comes in 2 sizes, small for around 20 zlotych, and big for around 30 zlotych. While ordering, you can choose extra toppings for your soup. First 3 toppings are included in the price, next ones are paid extra. But hey! You can take as much as you want!

Besides soup, they also serve  3 kinds of Gyoza dumplings and all kinds of Asian salads like kimchi or gomma wakame . If you feel extra hungry, you can  order full lunche set. The location is also great. This ramen shop is in the center of old town, 2 minutes from the centre and it’s open for every day.

Not feeling so good today? Wanna stay at home? Good news, PANda ramen (and it’s sister restaurant, PANda Sushi) is delivering tasty soup directly to your doorstep. I highly recommend visiting this place if you want to at least try this new “comfort food” trend yourself!

It has a beautiful but simple design, very cheerful waiters, and surprisingly polish people. They are working there and are very confident in English, so for you, as a foreigner, there will be no problem to ask the ingredients that they put in the dish or anything else that is bothering you.restaurant

The prices at Kociołek are pretty decent…but! And this is a very big but. You are ordering a portion that is not that small as you got used in any other restaurant. For my personal experience, I ordered just a starter – a plate of nuggets served with BBQ sauce. I didn’t expect that already from a starter I would be full, and this is only the beginning. Every other dish is also very tasty and for that price, you are getting enough, to be satisfied.

Art Hotel Wroclaw - Great localization in the very heart of Wrocław, a few dozen meters from the Market Square

Delicious, family and classy in Wroclaw

Art Hotel Wroclaw is the perfect place for people that want to discover this beautiful city. Great localization:

  • in the very heart of Wrocław,
  • a few dozen meters from the Market Square,
  • next to the beautiful street Kiełbaśnicza
  • and the historic gallery Jatki.
  • Close to city hall, various institutions and business.

In Art Restaurant you can try dishes made in the sous vide technique.

Food sharing in Wroclaw

Food sharing

Tons of food goes to the trash! What to do to avoid a huge waste of food? Food sharing is one of the answers!

Data shows that about 9 million tons of food is wasted annually in Poland. The value of this food is probably about PLN 50 for each Pole every month. 35% of the food go for disposal. That’s why we should try food sharing.

 

Sharing is a new trend.
Economics based on sharing is a relatively new trend in the economy and society. It involves the direct exchange of goods and services between consumers who mainly communicate via special websites or social media. With the help of this term, the entire spectrum of online businesses have the potential to revolutionize the global market for the exchange of goods and services. Also it can be both non-profit and profitable. However is about exchanging between one man and another. In this Expats in Wroclaw article. I want to focused on NON PROFIT form.

How does it starts?
The first Food Sharing point was opened in May 2016 in Warsaw. Therefore Torun, Cracow, Wroclaw and Poznan followed the idea. Other cities followed them consequently. Social refrigerators in Wroclaw are mostly grow due to the idea of ​​the group WeźPomóż.pl, which promotes the idea of ​​sharing food in Lower Silesia. Anyone who wants can bring food to the fridge. Food will be available in the fridge for those in need. Food sharing points are for everyone – the material status of people who visit it is not checked here. The whole system finally works freely.

What can you put in a shared fridge?
The basic rule: bring what you would eat by yourself.  Home products such as cake or soup must be packed in disposable, sealed containers with the exact date of preparation and description on packaging. Furthermore you can put dry products on special shelf. 

What can you not bring?
Products that contain raw meat, raw eggs, unpainted milk products (unless they are vacuum-packed and have a valid shelf-life) can not be accepted; open canned food or jars with preserves; products that have exceeded the shelf-life date; products with signs of breakage. The rules for products are posted on the front door of the refrigerator too.

Volunteers, companies and food rescuers
All sharing food points function because of volunteers. They are usually young people who, using social media – mainly Facebook – are trying to buy refrigerators, shelves, social signs and also make sure that the place is working properly. In addition volunteers check in this points cleanliness standards, wash it, if there’s a need, bring food or throw out expired products.

Food sharing
What to do to avoid a huge waste of food?

Where are the Refrigerators in Wroclaw?  We have seven of them in Wroclaw!

  • ul. Ludwika Rydygiera 25a (Nadodrze)
