Geneva has had some tricks up it sleeves, but none quite as surprising as Polp, a pop-up wedged between a fitness center and a Migros. The man in the window is mustachioed, smiling and friendly, and he’ll be standing ready to serve you their one dish of the month each month from June to November.
In June, he served an octopus shawarma: the octopus shaved thin, mixed with green peppers, olives and rucola, and peppered with oregano. But wait, that’s just the beginning: there in the pita’s base you’d find a couple of salty anchovies, curled up in pillowey, creamy burrata to round out some of that edge.
In July he delivered a Filipino style ceviche. And in August, he went local (just in time for Swiss National Day on August 1st), with crayfish and a cuchaule fribourgeois – a slightly sweet saffron brioche bread, recently endowed with its own PDO label.
Stop by soon to find out what the mad chef will pull out of his sleeve next!
