From dumplings and sauerkraut to paella and pizza, superb meals can be had by walking a few minutes from the station … but allow for the waddle back to take a bit longer
With time to kill in Warsaw between trains, I wandered out of the central station for food and within five minutes stumbled upon the Radio Café on Nowogrodzka. Inside, I found walls covered in cold war memorabilia and learned that the owners worked for Radio Free Europe at that time, giving the authentic Polish restaurant its name. I decided against the pierogi (dumpling) menu (from £5.50) and went for the zurek w chlebie soup (£3.50). This did not turn out to be a lighter option but a thick meat broth with sausage and mushrooms served in a large rye bread roll. It was a final delicious and satisfying Polish meal in a unique setting.
