BrowArmia Królewska

BrowArmia Królewska was established in August 2005 as Warsaw’s first restaurant-microbrewery. They brew 12 types of beer according to traditional European recipes. The restaurant is situated on the ground floor, with the basement assigned to the brewhouse. The atmosphere is relaxed yet sophisticated, serving traditional Polish and international dishes.

It was our last full day in Warsaw.  We returned to the Old Town area for some souvenir shopping, and decided to stop for lunch and one last Polish beer.  We sat on the patio with another great view for people watching.  Keith chose another pils, while I decided to try the light hefeweizen.  Both were pretty refreshing.

For food, all I wanted was a big salad to go with my beer.  I chose the Caesar Salad that came with chicken, sundried tomatoes and croutons.  It was slightly overdressed in the creamy dressing, and then drizzled with balsamic reduction.  Though it did not look the great, the salad tasted pretty good.  There was a lot of chicken and sundried tomatoes.  The portion was so large that I barely put a dent in it.  In the end, I was very happy with my choice.

Keith wanted one more plate of our beloved Polish dumplings, and ordered the Mixed Pierogis that came with two each of mushroom and cabbage; meat; and potato and onion.  They were pan-fried and served on a bed of fried onion bits.  I sampled one of the mushroom and cabbage pierogis, as I only had the potato & cheese version so far.  They were delicious and another great vegetarian option.  Keith asked for sour cream on the side, but the server didn't seem to understand and brought over horseradish instead.

Lastly, Keith ordered a Kielbasagrilled sausage served with French fries and ketchup.  Though grilled nicely, it was just like a regular smoked sausage lacking the intense garlic punch that Keith wanted.  He asked for mustard on the side, which took a while to come.

Service was a bit slow, and the food was average.  The atmosphere was neat to be in the center of the tourist area, plus having several more beer options than other local restaurants.
