Lonely Planet review
Stepping inside Urbanek is to enter a world of cured meats in all their different varieties – smoked, salted, cooked or raw. The atmosphere is rarefied but relaxed as you squeeze into a corner and enjoy a glass of wine (about €5) and perhaps delicately cut slices of Mangalitza pig – a woolly variety prized for its delicious ham.
The roast beef is organic, as are many other offerings here, and the selection of cheeses is just as good. Although there’s scarcely enough room to swing a cat inside, it’s well worth finding an empty few square inches to enjoy some of the finest cuts around.
