In every city there is probably an ongoing discussion about “which is the best kebab place?” People can dispute about it, fight, and get offended. In Warsaw it used to be like that.
Some of us were lovers of kebab place near Bajka; some were devotees of an enigmatic place on Solidarności Street, which now (due to the massive renovation) disappeared into even more enigmatic place. Some were ready to die for their local kebabs (the “super one” with cheese on the corner of Puławska and Narbutta).
Today no one has any doubts (at least when my friends are considered). The best of the best is Efes in the quiet two floor building situated in the corner of the small park (there is one more branch at Francuska 1).
It’s not like other quick-eat places which usually don’t have any tables to sit at. Here you have not only tables but also soft cushions and colorful curtains. The food is very diverse and good, but actually I never have decided to sit inside. Not because I don’t like it, but because I love my kebab too much to eat something else.
There is a magic hole-in-the-wall where I order lavash (thin pita bread) with lamb meat. The mix of the delicate meat with fresh veggies and some mysterious creamy or spicy sauce is just perfect. Efes is only 10 minutes away from where I live, but I rarely manage not to eat my kebab on my way back. It’s too delicious!
