CK Oberża, Śródmieście Północne, Warsaw
I had my first Warsaw meal at CK Oberża, a budget priced diner. It has an authentic East European pub feel and plenty of beer, and plenty of meat. Whilst it doesn’t seem to be a fave with the locals on Zomato, it did appear on my list of places to check out (for some reason or another).
The airport shuttle bus from Modlin drops passengers off at Centrum and the restaurant is located handily nearby. The people looked keen, my stomach was keen, the wallet was fine so let’s do this.
There wasn’t anyway to go but all-in, and I truly went all-in for the Korlewska Deska Mies for 37,90zł.
This is a carnivore delight on a plate. Or should that be carnivores. There’s chicken wings, black pudding, smoked sausage, chicken fillet, pork belly, pork fillet, cabbage salad, dips and baked potato. Phew! To say it was an overwhelming array of meat is an understatement, this meal gives you a bit of everything. It was all quite agreeable really. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to review the weather but it was also quality. Patchy for the rest of the weekend but for now its rays all ways.
I wasn’t such a fan of the Polish version of the black pudding, but all the meat was fantastic. The black pudding in the UK doesn’t taste like what I think it would. So maybe that’s why I prefer that variant. Perfect example of this is at the black pud at the Regency Cafe. It is super novel to have a sample of everything on offer and it would make a great dish for sharing. As I found out with my time in Warsaw, everything food-wise comes out extremely cheap. That’s comparative to London, of course. The service was polite, they spoke enough English and I had a nice relaxed start to my time in the city.
