I first noticed Orbis because of – what I think is the main attraction of this place – Belgian fries. Not french fries, but the real, traditional Belgian fries. Sceptical? I was too, until I tried. I lived in Brussels for a few years, and although I waited one year until I tried them (!), I quickly became a fan. They are just fries, but their taste is quite peculiar so you can distinguish them from the normal fries, which is probably due to the special preparation (they are fried twice, in beef or a mix of fats). In any case, the guys at Orbis know their stuff, and the fries really taste like they should. And this is without even mentioning the wide choice of sauces, which you can find in the regular “baraque à frites/frietkot” – the most traditional cocktail sauce, but also andalouse, samourai…they are all there.
Still, fries are not the only thing worth trying. Orbis is focused on all kinds of street food, from Asia to Argentina, of course prepared in the highest quality. Thus, their Moroccan Wrap is a much better alternative to the regular kebabs you can find in Bratislava’s streets. If you’re in the mood for Asian flavors, you can try the Kao Soy soup, if you like spicy food. Or you can “travel” to Latin America and order the Argentinian Choripan.
On the webpage Orbis promises to update its menu seasonally, I am already curious to see what discovery will come next.
