I admit it, I love Spanish culture and Spanish food. Over the years several Spanish restaurants have appeared in Warsaw; a lot of them are very good, but not very affordable.
Everyone who has lived in Spain will know that a real Spanish bar does not need to be fancy; the most important is the food and the wine — the perfect recipe for success.
A couple of years ago, Bar Szawa opened its doors close to Koszykowa street, a combination of Spanish food with a taste in international music. The first time I was there was because some friends were celebrating a Spanish meeting called “La Caña“, a meeting that is getting more and more popular among the displaced Mediterraneans in Warsaw.
Food here is very affordable and sustainable, meaning that it is mostly seasonal and mainly based on eggs and potatoes, products available in Poland all-year-round. The calamares and some seafood dishes give it an exotic touch.
Highly recommended if you want to feel like in Spain during a cold winter and still be able to have something to eat late in the evening.
