Jaś & Małgosia, al. Jana Pawła II 57
11:00 – 14:00 // FREE
We have a distinct pleasure to invite you to this not-so-ordinary opening! It is all about sinking into the neighborhood – getting to know your neighbours, spend a nice Sunday afternoon. It’s been a series of events that will end as a grand opening finale – seems like Jaś & Małgosia will be a neighbourly center. So, come on Sunday, and let’s have an ‚under the roof’ picnic: listen to the stories about the district and sink into the times of PRL (Polish People’s Republic).
There are few things prettier than warm autumn days in Żoliborz. After a stroll through the narrow streets with beautiful houses, you may get a bit hungry. Since there are many good joints in the neighbourhood, it can be a tough choice. We’ve been to Ósma Kolonia twice since it opened and we’re amazed once again with how much publicity it got already. Adjacent to Secret Life Cafe, the vegetarian restaurant has a very industrial feel to it. While I love the ‚old factory style’ walls, I dislike the uncomfortable chairs and low tables, which force me to slouch over my plate. While I like the idea itself, I feel uncomfortable confined within this small space, where everyone, the service and other guests, can hear my every word. When it comes to the menu, it’s very short, 5-7 courses plus 2-3 desserts, but that of course is a good thing. Te fashionable style of describing each dish only through key ingredients (like mango/coconut/noodles etc) is for people who like surprises- for example, when we ordered oyster mushroom dish, it turned out to be a spicy coconut-milk broth with mushrooms, sort of like a vegetarian Tom Ka Gai.
