Okienko Warsaw – French? No, Belgian!

"Okienko" Warsaw had a simple idea: just fries; only the pure delight and magic of a potato. They have plenty of recipes for their own (even vegan!) sauces

The idea was simple. Just fries. Without the hassle of the hamburger, the commotion of the cod, the struggle with the steak and the mess with McDonalds. Only the pure delight and magic of a potato. Thick, golden, simmering.

Belgium is the real home of the French fry (and I have heard that the whole French thing is supposedly only a silly mistake made by Americans!) and is considered something of a national food. Belgian fries are first boiled, then fried and then – fried again. That is what makes them so perfectly crispy and golden on the outside and soft and yummy on the inside.

Okienko also offers a variety of dipping sauces that they make specially on the spot according to their own recipes. Among others you can try: andalusian, azure, tomato, tzatziki, tikka masala, cheese and capers, honey-mustard, sambal, samurai and green curry!

Vegans, vegetarians! Okienko iż now offering vegan sauces as well! (And they fry in vegetable oil.)

Fries have become quite 'the thing' in Warsaw lately and Belgian Fries places have miraculously popped up all over Warsaw, but Okienko is most likely the first and definitely the favorite. Fries have slowly edged out the kebab as the number one late night clubbing food – you'll find crowds waiting around Okienko for their fries at the beginning of a long night on the town.

So... Want fries with that?

"Slou" in Warsaw gathers together very different items in one place, like clothing, plants and food magazines. It takes it 'slow', that's why I love it!
