Morela – The best bowl of buckwheat

The name of this place – Morela – means apricot but in this place you won’t think about fruits as the food offered here will help you forget about them. Morela offers dishes from Polish cuisine and it is one of not many places where you can eat buckwheat, and not as addition to another dish, instead of potatoes.

You should know that in the past buckwheat and other types of groats were even more popular than potatoes. In Morela you can eat buckwheat as a main dish and I really recommend trying it but if you’re not sure you’ll become a fan of this type of food just ask the waiter for a sample. It is possible to choose one of a few types of buckwheat – for example the one with bacon and plums, grilled chicken or peppers and olives. For every dish they offer also sauces: horseradish, garlic, spicy and cocktail. Everything is baked in the oven and served on the wooden board with side dishes of salad and pickles. And be aware of horseradish sauce -sometimes it can be hot as hell!

But if you want to try something else I recommend you try a salad with lettuce, orange, blue cheese and cucumber.

Morela is a great place to have a coffee and some dessert while reading a book (your own or borrowed from their reference library).

At Morela you can choose seats inside the restaurant, the internal garden or tables on the main street.
