Plac Unii shopping Centre
22-23.11 // FREE
Here’s a thought: why not start Christmas shopping early this year? You know it well – leaving the inevitable for the last minute, ending up with mass-made, tacky, non-personal gifts. Good news. There’s a way to avoid it. At the Nice Things Fair, this weekend, you’ll find over 130 Polish designers with products ranging from furniture and interior design, to books and bike accessories. Plenty to choose from.
A tip: hungry? Try the French-style Byc moze cafe across the street. Their fresh bread is to die for.
Do you remember Rute’s review of My’o'My, the cute brunch place on Szpitalna street? Well, its owners have opened another joint just a few steps nearby which specialises in Thai food. Our Executive Editor has once spent a month in Bangkok and has sufficient experience with authentic Thai cuisine, while I must admit I’ve only had a European-Thai taste so far. But anyway, we’re no smarty-pants here. The menu is short, a few starters and mains, one dessert, two sides, and a reasonable list of drinks. Like its older sister, My’o'Tai‚s interior is simple, scandinavian in style, with no Thai kitch on the walls (which can be adorable, though).
