Best Home Dinner in Wroclaw

There is no thing like eat a dinner exactly same as in home when you are far away. There`s also no thing like taste traditional or just casual domestic polish food so that`s a good offer for foreigners to try flavours of Poland. I have chosen two bars which serves best home dinner in city centre. Two bars with similarly offer but quite different. These are rather popular places so if one of them is full, the second one is only 70 meters away just around the corner.

Bar Miś (Teddy Bear)
Adress: Kuźnicza 48

If you would like to try casual polish delicious pork chop with potatoes, coleslaw and almost perfect tomato soup you should go to Miś Bar. Abundant offer includes among others:
– tomato soup with pasta or rice
– barley soup
– mushroom soup with pasta
– sorrel soup with egg
– dumplings (!) with potato and cottage cheese stuffing
– various dumplings with no translation to English called pierogi, kopytka, kluski, knedle
– apple drop scones
– croquet
– bunch of salads
– bean with carrot
– fried beetroot
– cauliflower
– cucumber salad
– potaotes, buckwheat or rice

Fresh meat dishes:
– pork chop
– meat patty
– poultry chop
– chicken filet
– beef stew
– meat balls with muschroom sauce
And many others.

First of all, the best of all is price. You need to pay much lower than you expect. Soups are about 1,10 to 1,70zł (~0,3 EUR). Full dish includes for example soup, potatoes, some dumplings, chicken filer and salad costs 13zł (~3 EUR). And trust me, the servings are big. It`s propably no opportunity to leave local being hungry.
As a result, familar atmosphere, low prices and really tasty domestic food causes for many clients that Bar Miś is their beloved.

Bar Misz-Masz
Adress: Nożownicza 14
Website: http://www.barmiszmasz.pl/
self-service in Misz-Masz

Second option is Bar Misz-Masz. The one important thing what differs these two bars is that Misz-Masz is self-service. You`re bring the plate and puts what you want on it, then you need to weigh your plate and pay 3zł (0,7 EUR) per 100 grams, so that means full 0,5kg dinner costs you 15zł (3,5 EUR). Ain`t no cheaper places like these two. Bar Misz-Masz offers one soup of a day and also serves good Polish food but not only. Menu is similar to Miś but extended with dishes like:
– spicy chicken
– chcicken in sweet and sour sauce
– ribs
– poultry shoarma
– spaghetti
– fries
– fishes
and others.

Dishes are as good as in Bar Miś. Price is really low and you are able to take as much food as you want. Student have an extra 10% discount any time and even more, everybody pays half of price in last 30 minutes nearly closing the local.

So if you are hungry in centre of Wroclaw next to main square these two options allows you to eat tasty dinner in suprisely low price. I think you have to try its food. Huge recomendation from me. You surely won`t be disappointed.

Hala Targowa Wroclaw shopping center

Hala Targowa is a traditional a place of trade and meetings of residents.

A traditional place for shopping Hala Targowa (Wroclaw) – designed by Richard Plüddemann and Heinrich Küster.

Hala Targowa was built in 1908 and it is a valuable engineering monument. The design was very modern, the construction was supported on reinforced concrete arches, what gave the building a high durability. The external elevation is partly made of bricks, whereas from the south it is plastered. The window frames were made of steel. The building has two towers and a clock. The building has 4 floors, the most important is the main hall and the gallery surrounding it. In the cellars there are freezers and butchers’ rooms where there is quartered the meat. The hall towers are unfortunately not available for tourists. Many architectural elements of the Hala Targowa have been written in the list of the monuments. Starting from the main portals made of sandstone in the art nouveau style, through bas-reliefs, urban coat of arms, clocks. Ending with balustrades, stairs and even crates of meat stands also made in the art nouveau style.

Now Hala Targowa is a traditional a place of trade and meetings of residents.

After entering the main hall on the left side, you can find a few very large stands with fruits and vegetables, on the right there are meat, bakeries and dairy products. There are several stands with traditional products from Spain and Portugal. You can buy not only regional products but also high quality Spanish hams or feta cheese. You can buy here bread baked on natural sourdough, spelt buns, soy mingers, cold pressed oils, herbs and spices, birch juice. In the further part there are many stands with flowers and floristic accessories. There is a cash machine at the entrance, but for the majority of stands there is a possibility you to pay by a card. Apart from shopping, there are a few cheap bars and cafes in the hall, and a restaurant with  a craft beer in front of the entrance. In the hall gallery there are stands with chemical and household articles. In front of the building there is a tram stop (lines 8,7,17,9,23) next to it there are a few parking places, however, it is the best to walk on this part of the city.

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 vegan food in Wroclaw.

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.

Vegan food in Wroclaw

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!
