This inspiring and spirited bistro in the Kazimierz district pleases the visitors with its minimalist design and casual atmosphere. The chef, who back at Zaza Bistro made himself known as a master of combining the flavours of Poland and France, decided to take the opposite direction at Karakter. Indeed, the menu is dominated by that which is unknown, underappreciated and inaccessible elsewhere: horse thymus, bovine diaphragm, ostrich gizzard... The concentrated flavours of truffles, anchovies, smoked speck or Gorgonzola pair splendidly with fifth quarter meats. Although Karakter caters more to the meat loving crowd, their expertly prepared seafood made some stomach to heart journeys as well. PSST! Drinks and cocktails, natural wines, craft beers and ciders all make for yet another of the restaurant’s strong points.
