I left the family frolicking in France and hopped on two planes, eventually touching down in Warsaw.
I flew in to shoot a little top secret project with a top secret company about a top secret new product.
I’m basically the James Bond of blogging.
In between shooting, my chap and I had all sorts of high hopes for Warsaw! We were going to see every museum, try all of the food available and generally make the most of this exciting new place.
Starting with lunch on our first day, at Flaming & Co.
Wrapped up against the icy drizzle;
Upon arriving I asked everyone for advice on where to eat.
Oliwia Królikiewicz thought we’d love Flaming & Co. so we went to give it a whirl!
With it’s Euro, almost Scandi, blue & white vibe we felt very much at home.
In fact I could quite happily have moved in!
We shared a few starters, they’re always my favourite bit of any menu.
So grateful to finally be back in Oyster season.
Remember, only eat them when there’s an “R” in the month.
Scallops with crayfish and apple.
And my favourite…
The truffle pizza!
Not an especially Polish meal, but a great start to the weekend!
If you find yourself at a loose end in Warsaw, you can’t really go wrong with Flaming.
After lunch we took a stroll through the city, and found ourselves in the park.
We fed the ducks.
And befriended a couple of the locals.
Just like our London inhabitants, but in red pyjamas.
If you take a pocket full of nuts they’ll come and take them from your hands.
(Just don’t tell Custard.)
Having stretched our legs it was time to head into the studio.
One thing lead to another and the hours sailed by. We didn’t get back to the hotel until midnight, so settled for room service. Call time the next day was 6am, and we didn’t get out until all the restaurants had closed!
My dreams of perogies and rose jam filled doughnuts went out of the window.
But I suppose it means I’ll just have to plan another Polish adventure, right?!
If you have any recommendations for my next trip please let me know and I’ll save them up for then.
