Actually it was fish and chips and it was damn good. With malt vinegar and tartar sauce, it made for a winning meal. Others said the same about the food and we all agreed it was top nosh and mighty portions.
What was once the London Steakhouse, a dire looking, cheesy grothole has been transformed to something more agreeable. A fine selection of beer on tap and in bottles including Spitfire, Old Speckled Hen and a few lagers (competitively priced too).
There are a number of TV screens showing the obligatory sport but they are not that much of a distraction. As Saturday evening rolled on, it really started to get busier, mostly with expats and as the pints were downed and the conversations got louder we ended up having a thoroughly enjoyable night out. Cheers!
Just had my first taste of bubble tea from the newly opened tea shop underneath the Central Railway Station in Warsaw. I think I'm hooked on this Tawainese invention- it was delicious! I had no idea what to expect and the menu might have well been in Greek, luckily though it was in English. I thought to myself why not jump in at the deep end, take a plunge mate. So I found a fruit I liked, ordered the green tea to go with it sat down and hey presto - one bubble tea! The winner for me was the tapioca pearls you get that lie in the bottom of the (plastic) glass. I'm not going to tell you any more , just suck 'em and see.

NOW CLOSED DOWN! THERE IS NO THIRST LEFT FOR BUBBLE TEA HERE ANYMORE.
Here's the google interactive map for Warsaw. Even though the streets are up-to-date, there is so much work going on that many streets are closed, or have diversions and so on. Make sure that when you are driving in the city you have a good GPS, map or that you have checked the Warsaw city website for traffic restrictions. Even for residents of the city it is chaotic and the diversions have mostly been caused by the building of the new underground line, which cuts through the heart of the city. With Euro 2012 to throw into the mix, the next few weeks should be interesting. Drivers you have been warned!
