Last night, Bill and I decided to have Greek food at Taverne beim Griechen, which is a restaurant in a local Sportsplatz. We both had fish and I didn’t quite finish mine, which seemed to piss off the proprietor. He was concerned that I didn’t enjoy my dorade. I did enjoy it; I just couldn’t finish it. I probably should have had him wrap it for me. Next time, I’ll do better. I only got through about half of it, though, which seemed to really upset our Greek friend.
Bill had grilled Wolfbarsch (branzino), which was just the right size. He managed to finish his fish.
Bill went a schnitzel with cognac cream sauce and potatoes that were kind of like latkes. Again, the dish was well sized. It wasn’t too much and he was able to enjoy the whole thing. We had fresh bread, too.
It was just after 2:00 when we finished. I asked the waitress/bartender if I could have dessert. She said she had to check with the kitchen. Fortunately, they were agreeable and made me the dessert pictured below. Truth be told, I went to Luz Bistro expressly for that dessert, which is a true cure for PMS. My mother in law had it when she visited in December and I’ve been wanting to visit again ever since so I could get it.
Rich chocolate tart with vanilla sauce, and the most sinful salted caramel ice cream I’ve ever had. That was the best part of the whole thing… and I’m usually a sucker for anything chocolate. Bill had an espresso.
Our bill came to about 74 euros. It was worth it, just for that tart and ice cream. It was so good! After lunch we went to the Wein-Laden store and picked up a couple of wines for later. I took note of the ad for energy.
I like it when bucks are used to advertise energy.
If you’re ever in Nagold and need wine, this shop is a great place to stop.
I’m not sure what tomorrow has in store for us. As the days get longer, I start thinking it’s time to break out of hibernation and get back to enjoying life in Germany. We won’t be here forever.
