Fast-Food Tips and Late-Night Munching

In addition to the omnipresent McDonalds (Hviezdoslavovo Square, SNP Square, Obchodna, Eurovea) KFC (SNP Square, Obchodna) Burger King (Eurovea), Bratislava offers a growing selection of local fast-food options. In the winter-time, the Christmas Market in the Main Square is hard to beat for selection but here are a few tips for fast-food joints open throughout the year:

Bagel & Coffee Story - Stylish bagel and coffee "factory" with several locations in the Old Town.

Bageterias - There are a number of these small shops serving fresh baguette sandwiches (a popular choice is the one in the pedestrian zone on the corner of Zelena and Venturska). One can be also found at the lower end of Marianska street and the most famous among the locals is Bagety F&M on Obchodna street.

Kebap - Up until a few years ago good kebap was nowhere to be found but due to the Kebap's popularity that is fortunately changing. A late-night kebap place just above Michael's Gate is a good way to get some late food, Happy Kebap in SNP Square is said to be the best Kebap in the city. Recently opened Turkish Kebab Tulipan at Obchodna street is a nice addition for those hungry. On the Obchodna / Kollarovo Square intersection there is a small restaurant offering the Greek version of Kebap - Gyros. Excellent kebap is also available at the Mlynska Dolina student dormitories.

Manderlak - A late-night fast-food joint in a building that used to be Braislava's tallest, the Manderlak (at the foot of the SNP Square) serves fried meats, hot dogs, pizza and chicken breast sandwiches.

Richmeneria - These stalls are located throughout the city and serve a Slovak specialty, the "Richman". The Richman is a sandwich that consists of ham, mayonnaise, cheese, and cabbage or other fillings of your choice on a simple bun. Richmenerias are cheap and serve late into the night. Popular Richmenerias in the centre are on Kamenne Square in front of the Tesco, Marianska near the Hotel Kyjev and Safarikovo Square on a tram stop.
