First thing this morning we made online dinner reservations at a very nice little bistro in Rouen. Made in Normandy Bistro is in the old town and we were quite happy to be able to get a table there. In a typical French style we are celebrating our 17th Wedding Anniversary today with foie gras […]
We don’t get to see Volker and Kasia very often. Kasia is always either in Vienna or Warsaw and we are almost never here on the weekends. Today we finally got to sit down with both of them for a nice meal on the balcony. The kids, all 3 of them, were not interested in hanging […]
After a long day out, a well deserved dinner. We sat down for a dinner at the Castle Hotel Petry where we are staying to have a nice and relaxing dinner. Good food, good company – good time.
A few steps away from the hotel on a quiet little street behind some government buildings is Le Dauphine. A small bistro where we had dinner. Long story short, if you are in Metz looking for a single portion of steak tartar that is well spiced and large enough to feed a small village this […]
This is our local about 3 min walk from where we are staying in Rome. We came here for breakfast all three days which varied between €7.00 to €24.00 – we also had dinner snacks here too which came to be about the same. We absolutely love this place and love the food and […]
Happy Anniversary to Kasia and Volker. We are out celebrating their 17th Wedding Anniversary today. Kasia and Volker suggested we go to one of their favourite restaurants just outside Nuremberg. Once again we did not manage to get all the pictures of the food for the blog but we did manage to get the desserts into […]
We are setting off for dinner to the old town which is a short walk from out home, but the sky looks like it is ready to turn into a biblical proportion downpour – hopefully we will make it there before it does.
It’s dinner time. We are down at our local restaurant Mullers. Great authentic German food – no cooking involved in this meal.
This place is no Zeller Bistro but we are out trying something new. Tonight we are at Lado Cafe. This little place, is where the locals hang out to have a dinner and listen to some live jazz or blues. Tonight is a live jazz show. Frankly we did not have the time to take […]
We are out for yet another walk today. Today we are trying Sushi Glass a highly recommended, very busy sushi place in the old town.
In short awesome. On our way back after a bit of wondering around Paris we settled in our comfy seats in the first class. This time we were served dinner which was: pasta salad with tomatoes, goat cheese and broad green beans. Grilled beef with rice and vegetable ratatouille. For dessert lemon tart. Wine, water, […]
Traffic is going no where fast, we are at about 6 hours of driving and about 550 km. We are about 60 km from Hamburg. Hopefully by the time we finish eating the traffic will thin out.
It is a beautiful Thanksgiving day in Nuremberg. To keep up with Canadian tradition we got up early to start on the Thanksgiving dinner in particular our usual double baked butternut squash. We have been making this for the last 15 years and no Thanksgiving was ever without this dish. In fact is it the […]
Traveling means three things really – looking at great buildings and overeating and taking pictures of good food we eat. We got a suggestion to go to the Beer House for a good traditional Czech dinner and that is what we did. The beer is brewed in houses in a dizzying array of crazy […]
L’Osteria again, finally everyone manned up and ordered a pizza today followed by ice cream followed by – what the hell were we thinking eating this much… Luckily we are walking home to get some pretend exercise.
Today we were treated to a fine 3 course meal prepared by Boris and Evelina. They planned the menu, they prepared the entire meal and served it. We were absolutely astonished not only at their zeal and dedication but also the actual planning and execution. They chopped and sliced, mixed, fried, boiled, strained and served […]
