Best Ramen in Warsaw

Image
(1m 30s read) It's time to grow up, no more cheap instant noodles. We need to mature our culinary standards. Let me introduce you to the best place in Poland to enjoy the beloved Asian classic, ramen . Not even a 10-minute walk from Warsaw University of Technology, Arigator Ramen  Shop is turning high-quality ramen  into a science. With a delicious array of options to choose from, it's clear to see these kitchen technicians have mastered this famous Japanese dish. I must warn you: unless you know what you're looking for, you might walk right past this treasure . Don't let the size fool you though, this tiny  restaurant packs a flavorful punch! In my trips to Arigator , I have devoured the Tantanmen Classic enough to know it will forever be my go-to. The mildly  spicy pork broth is unlike anything I've ever had. The Shoya  mushroom is also delicious, and its kakuni  pork belly will melt in your mouth. Served in a neat  Japanese-style kettle, I'd recommend drin

Szprycer

(44 s read) Looking for a modern , intimate place to grab a drink in Warsaw ? Szprycer , located right on Nowy ┼Üwiat ,  might be the spot for you. Not even a two-minute walk from Warsaw's very  own palm tree, this quaint little bar features a full menu of cocktails , with an emphasis on spritzers of course. J├Ągermeister fans, this may also be a place you'll want to check out. I had my first-ever J├Ąger  Sour here and I must say, delicious . Whether you want a small, trendy place to take your date before dinner or a chill place to relax with some friends, this clean and cozy lounge is perfect. Appetite can't wait for your dinner reservation? Szprycer  even has you covered with "nachos" (tortilla chips and dip). My thoughts: I'm not a fan of huge , loud bars. I tend to opt for more laid-back, comfortable environments and Szprycer  had this. In addition to my J├Ąger Sour, I sampled the Aperol Spritz & Hibiscus Szprycer , both enjoyable. The prices were

Worst State for a Zombie Apocalypse

For whatever reason, people are fascinated with zombies, and given recent world events, I believe we need to discuss what matters most: where are the best and worst places to be to survive a zombie apocalypse. This post will be all about where you don't want to be during the zombie takeover. Apologies to my international friends. This installment of 'What if,' is going to focus specifically on the United States, but fear not! If you're interested in finding out what country is the best to be in during the apocalypse, that's already compiled in a two-part story you can find here & here . Now, let's dig into it. W hen I first considered this situation, I thought of California, Florida, Hawaii, & New York as being easy choices. These states have a lot of people and big metropolitan areas. Then I put some more thought into it and realized the answer may not be so s

What if the U.S. was Invaded?!

(2m 30s read) Over the past two years, I have found myself saying, "There's no way that would ever happen," more times than I can count. Much to my dismay, a majority of these instances have in fact become part of our world's reality. Most of the inspiration for this "What If" post came from the movie Red Dawn. In the original Red Dawn from 1984, the United States is invaded by the Soviet Union, Nicaragua, and Cuba. In the 2012 remake, which is better than the original, the U.S. is invaded by North Korea (although it was  supposed to be China ). Watching this movie, my imagination was running on all cylinders, and with everything that has been going on in the world in recent memory, I thought this "What If" was well overdue. *Reminder: This is a completely hypothetical what-if scenario that I've come up with solely for the purpose of entertainment.* First, we'll start with the 5 W's + 1H (Who, What, When, Where, How, Why): Who Would Inv
