Wodka Description

When Wodka opened in 1989, Jan Woroniecki's commitment to bringing Polish and Eastern European food to a wider audience made Wodka a small phenomenon. Set in the attractive residential area of Kensington just south of Kensington Gardens, Wodka occupies an old building that was originally the Dairy to Kensington Palace. Quietly tucked away, the location of Wodka makes it a favourite amongst locals and an inviting surprise to visitors who happen to find it. Complete with antique ceramic tiles and wood panelling, the building's understated design highlights its relaxed elegance, ensuring a warm and

intimate dining atmosphere. Alongside Jan Woroniecki's second restaurant, Baltic, Wodka serves the best Polish and Eastern European food in London. Rustic and flavourful, Wodka's menu represents a range of great country cooking and daily specials from the region. Wodka also stocks the complete selection of Polish vodkas from Wyborowa and Krupnik to Goldwasser, served in frozen glasses.

“Tucked behind the main lights of London town and nestled amongst one of the loveliest pubs your likely to grace in the city sits Wodka. A polish restaurant with a penchant for vodkas. The setting is cosy, quaint almost, and we felt that we had most likely discovered a gem when we walked in. We started with the blinis. A miniature pancake which comes served with a variety of edibles that you might want to dump on the top of it. Take your pick from vinegary herring, wood mushrooms, plain yogurt, salmon and embriotic roe sacks. Now to be fair the mushroom pate was reasonably inoffensive, but the blinis were more of an ill fated flat Yorkshire pud than a pancake, the herring induced the gag reflex and the yogurt was more like Tesco Value plain than the Polish garlic flavour as advertised. Onto the main course, where my good friend Warrior received a pig leg fit for Mutley to dine on, lain on a bed of saurkraut. It's a good job he wasn't aiming to hit his 5 a day target last night… My stewed sinnew - or goulash - as it was referred to, was a bowl of connecting tissue in gravy without any of the sausage it promised on the menu. We skipped desert. And did I mention that the waiter sniggered at me when I order a vodka and soda… Pah! Value for money, put it this way, if I didn't get a 50% discount I would have been Royally p****** off. Prost.”

Food

The food at Wodka is full of the strong flavours and robustness that is the hallmark of the great country cooking from the east of Europe. While the classic dishes are served, Wodka retains the authenticity of Eastern European food and uses it as a base to develpo a fresh approach to Polish cooking.
