Boasting more than 50 different types of vodka, this Polish Vodka bar and restaurant offers the best of the southside of Chapel street in a perfectly polish themed destination.
Whether you are a vodka fan or not, I’m postive either one of the following will win you over: Vibe, knowledgable friendly staff and amazing food – the kind of food that would give your grandma a run for her money!
We tried some flavoured vodka, some clear vodka and some truly amazing homely food.
Ang ordered “beetroot soup”…. I was dubious about this as I’ve never heard of it before, and couldn’t get the taste of canned beetroot soaking through bread out of my mind.
We were in for a surprise!
First, the colour was amazing and vibrant, and the aroma of the soup was overpoweringly goooood!
Most importantly, the taste was amazing. It was light and full of beetroot flavour, but not in a canned way.
Laura ordered Goulash, which was again amazing…. moorish, and full of flavour.
And I ordered a Polish style gnocci in broth which was also out of this world.
We had polished it all off in true Polish style, and sat back to enjoy the warmth of the food and vodka as we caught up on each-others lives.
(Yes, I have a tendency to add ‘non breakfasty’ type entries… In my defence however, I really think breakfast can be enjoyed many ways including last night’s leftovers or a traditionally ‘lunch type’ food. Breakfast is what you make it. Technically the first meal of the day, and I would be more than happy to enjoy a warm hearty soup some melbourne mornings :) )
