Ok, I’ll be straight with ya’ll. I tried to find Amber Room’s menu from last May but they’ve since uploaded a new menu. I can’t remember EVERYTHING we ate but I remember some of them… Most importantly, I remember savouring the food so that’s a good sign 😂 (I mean, they can’t be ranked #1 on Tripadvisor for nothing, right?)
After our epic food adventure in Barcelona ended, N and I visited his best friend, “H”, in Warsaw! I was so stoked to visit N’s other motherland (his mother’s motherland, to be exact). I was even more stoked to try the food. Communist-Era “bar mleczny” a.k.a. “Milk Bars”? Check. Pierogi? Check. Pączki? Check. Flaki? Double check. Swiderki lody? CHECK! 😀 N and H go way back so he was determined to bring him out for a grand meal and a grand time. After a bit of research on the internet, he decided on…you guessed it, Amber Room.
The funny story is…we showed up a day earlier than our reservation!!! LOL! Luckily they were nice enough to accommodate us and we ended up dining in the basement, which boasts an open air patio.
I guess they realized we were there to share because when the servers brought our food, the chefs had plated three equal portions of all three of our main dishes together so that we could eat without fussing and passing plates around. Genius! Thanks chefs! Even better, we received three gravy boats of different sauces; they possessed depth and great flavour. Truly elevated each entree.
Highlights: the beetroot risotto, best risotto I’ve ever had in my LIFE no joke; the duck pierogi; the lightly seared tuna with vanilla foam, and the chocolate sphere with popcorn. Bravo!
