/ Misery /PRL era tourism in Warsaw
but was demolished some 2 years ago
You talking about SEZAM?was the first ever grocery store I visited in Warsaw,and the only one near me then.Now infact across Carefourr on Chemilna,new Biedronka opened up ,is small with 2 floors and a lift.There use to be Kredyt bank in 2000 right across that Czec beer place called Czeska.Sezam was a one stop shop I agree but now they building a new building and mickey dees was opening up in that building next to it,where it was SPHINX before, last month when I was there,I hope they have 24 hr service window like the one in demolished mickey dees. I heard there will be a supermarket.I loved the Grilled chicken they sold from the side.
BTW after that banana prices I started watching food prices and realised here in NJ the Bread prices have gone outrageous min price I could find for a loaf in Walmart was 2.75$ while in Warsaw centre I buy a reasonable loaf for 4 Pln and cheapest is under 2 PLN and no good steak less then 8.99 a lb.
A bit late to add across jerozolimskie on krucha there is that black building called wilka(wolf)has shops of Louis Vuitton, Hermes & Chanel,on top of the building there are 2 restaurants and a deli and wine cellar,its like going up by 4 long escalators or nice elevators,reasonably highend priced but food is great.They sell cheese,meat,jams etc everything mostly organic and very good.I always buy from there if Im invited for a grill.Also there dinners are great and have cigar smoking rooms at the end also.Price is right average 100pln p person with reasonable wino.My wife buys meats/fish from there to take to her village.
Delph Don't go to Praga Harry tells me you will get your head kicked in as it is a no go zone. and deffo don't go to the glass houses my uncle lives there, rough as a badger
Wrong Dolno,there are beautiful restaurants like soho factory etc and on ul francusca whole street is full and crowded with yuppes in summer and weekends.we go there often to get out of the tourist crowd in the centre on bikes then take the ferry back to old town.
Is that dreadful Carrefour still there on the same street nearby? (Marszałkowska?)
Yes the underground one is still there they sell alcohol and next to that is Rossman in underground,but if you get out from the back door escalators on the left front is that new biedronka i mentioned above.
