As you walk down the streets of Warsaw you are greeted with many gloomy and dark restaurants which attempt to win you over with their cheap prices and quick food. Onggi is quite the opposite; as you enter, you are greeted with elegant decor filling each corner of the room making you feel as if you’ve arrived at a truly “oriental” restaurant. Once you sit down you are greeted by a waiter and given a menu from which you can choose a variety of delicious meals. Here are some of our favourites.
Bulgogi:Marinated beef slices stir-fried with vegetables
It will set you back 49zł, but it’s definitely worth the price. The dish gives off an amazing aroma when served and tastes absolutely magnificently. The dish isn’t massive. Don’t worry though, you won’t feel hungry after eating that delicious meal. The meat is extremely tender, and marinated, it tastes amazing. A must eat for anyone visiting for the first time.
Maeun Origui – Marinated grilled duck
If you’re someone who enjoys spicy food you’re definitely gonna enjoy this duck. This dish will set you back 49zł. Although being a bit spicy, the duck still has an amazing taste to it, so you’re definitely going to enjoy every bite. In case you need to clear your throat after eating, you are given a bowl of delicious rice to help you out, or you can have a drink of tea.
Green Tea with ginger
It costs 10zł, which seems a bit high. But if you appreciate high quality tea then it’s something you shouldn’t missed out on.
Onggi isn’t the cheapest restaurant in Warsaw, but if you wish to eat well, and have a genuine experience of a Korean restaurant, this is the go-to place in Warsaw.
