Tasting Menu

Mateusz A Zurek & Jahmarley Grant


We are growing

We have decided to close BYWA Tasting Room at the end of October 2022 to focus on opening the new BYWA Restaurant.
We have always had the goal in mind to bring our experience to more people and in a space more tailored for the experience. We have a long journey ahead of us, we thank you for being a part of it so far. We hope that you follow us through this time of transition and into the future.

While BYWA takes a temporary pause, we are excited to present to you Yaad Polish- Jamaican - a casual place where you can continue to indulge in our unique expression of Polish and Jamaican flavours while creating unforgettable moments with your loved ones.  Yaad, the Jamaican word meaning garden and home, encompasses the essence of our new establishment.  Our menu will feature classic cultural dishes harmoniously blended with our own signature fusion creations.

Less-waste Restaurant Philoshophy

Food is something that unites. It’s something that is lovingly grown and nurtured for months before it arrives in our shops and restaurants. It’s a social activity, a comfort, an essential, and a luxury.
LOVE YOUR FOOD. Your food is at its best when it’s on your plate (..). It’s at its worst when it’s in your bin. 



We’ve been working together as a culinary collective since 2018 and desire to help our Guests explore ways of eating and drinking in a mindful and creative state. We aim to work with the best ingredients available and do our very best to create the least waste possible


Since we’ve realized that zero-waste movement is a utopia, we are focused on developing our Tasting Menu Concept which maximizes quality and minimizes waste. Working with top quality ingredients and reducing food waste by using the totality of our ingredients, along with nurturing direct partnerships with food producers is core to our cuisine.


The Low Intervention Wine Embassy

While dining you will be able to order from our unique Natural Wine Collection. Don't be alarmed, we stay far away faulty wines. When selecting our wines we choose based on quality, experience, tradition, and environmental impact.

Our dining experience is designed to be enjoyed with low-intervention wines and sakes.
