Rather regular Portuguese food with below-average service: Restaurant Vasco da Gama (30. September 2017)

In the 20+ times I’ve been to Hamburg, I have passed by the Vasco da Gama a couple of times but somehow never ended up in there. Finally, it was time to give it a try. As I was starving, I decided to get some “Aioli” (EUR 2.00) with bread and it was a good […]

Delicious Asian food in a rather simple place: Restaurant Yuki Hana (23. September 2017)

Delicious Asian food in a rather simple place: Restaurant Yuki Hana (23. September 2017)

The Yuki Hana is rated quite highly on Google so I decided to give it a try – and you wont’ find the entrance to the place right away as it is in the backyard. First you walk by a store which sells sandwiches but you have to keep going for a bit so you […]

Great Vietnamese lunch offering: Restaurant My Tam (22. September 2017)

Great Vietnamese lunch offering: Restaurant My Tam (22. September 2017)

The “fried wantan” (EUR 3.00) were a bit too fried for my taste as basically you would taste a lot of crunchy dough but not really any of the stuffing. However, in combination with the sweet and sour sauce, it made for a decent starter. The “Vit Cari (cripsy duck with vegetable, lime leaves, coco […]

Upgraded food offering compared to previous visits: Westin Executive Club @ The Westin Grand Munich (7. September 2017)

It is quite some time ago since I’ve had the time to eat something in the Westin Executive Club in the Westin Grand Munich – and while they’ve changed the menu shortly before I’ve left the Westin Grand (given I used to stay there for 14 months), I was actually never really in the Lounge […]

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

I guess I would never have entered the Arizona Steak-House. Not because of the place but because it is rather remote, i.e. far from the city centre. However, given we were there in the context of a bachelor party and the bachelor eats there quite often, we ended up there. The place is loud, full, […]

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

I was not aware that there was a Hofbräuhaus in Hamburg – but hey, there is always the time when you learn something new. Somehow not so surprising, it was almost empty when we entered it on a sunny Saturday afternoon and ordered a “Jausen Brett (meat paste, bacon, pepper biter, cold roast, obadzda, leberkäs, […]

Definitely a place you have to try when in Berlin: Berlin Beef Balls @ Markthalle Neun (20. August 2017)

While I have been to Berlin quite a couple of times, I’ve actually never heard about Markthalle Neun – and it is definitely a place you should know about. They are basically a food market hall serving different kinds of food – always a new theme – while having a kind of standardized range of […]

Lovely wedding dinner: Restaurant La Banca @ Hotel de Rome (19. August 2017)

The ball room of the Hotel de Rome is spacious and has incredibly high ceilings – which makes it quite amazing as a dinner location. The menu was served in the context of a wedding and started with “gazpacho. baked prawn. basil tomato mayonnaise”. The soup was refreshing but a bit thicker than how I […]
