I apologize for the major lag time in between my last few messages. My computer is currently having quite a bit of trouble, so that makes finding the time to write on my blog when home at night difficult, to say the least. However here we go for a next entry. I will be trying, going forward, to be back to my regular posting rate of 3-4 times each week once more!
Last week was a busy one. Lots of fun activities out and about in Frankfurt.
Heros Burgers!! This is becoming a staple/favorite for me. These are the closest I have found within Europe to hitting home in terms of an American style burger. This time I tried a sandwich called "The Greenie," not on the actual burger menu. This is a baked/breaded zucchini sandwich topped with red pepper, arugula, fresh mozzarella cheese and balsamic dressing. Oh man, I was pleasantly surprised. Super tasty!!!
Bitter und Zart. LOVE this tea shop. The prices are a bit steep but the atmosphere is glamorous, ornate and luxurious, without breaking the bank. This is where Judith and I held out last meeting for our group Sweet Meets :-D and it was lots of fun. I had a green tea and a slice of cheesecake, yum yum.
Yours Australian Bar for the outstanding, all-you-can-eat, Sunday breakfast buffet!!!! This was super delectable and great fun. The spread of food is expansive, including but not limited to: french toast, eggs, baked beans, croissants, a huge array of desserts, bacon, sausage, salads, potato wedges, various friend foods, cereals, etc, etc, etc ;-) you get the idea.
Tea and cake with a friend at a cafe that was just remodeled and re-opened, called World Coffee Co. The carrot cake here was delish and the atmosphere is cozy with oversize plush chairs one can sink into.
|The street on which this cafe is housed. Super lovely.|
Pizza with a friend in Bockenheimer Warte, the area of Frankfurt in which I work. Supposedly one of the best pizza places, in the city is housed here, Da Cimino, so I suggested to her that we give it a go. The pizza was good, but I would definitely not rate it among the best. However with that said, I would recommend it. The crust was thin and on the crispy side, a good balance in terms of sauce/cheese ratios, the pizza came out quickly and the line was out the door. A decent pizza for sure.
And finally, going to meet with a family to whom I am friends with in the city of Dreieich-Buschlag just outside of Frankfurt. I go to their home every other Saturday to give their child semi-practice in English, but also just to spend time with the family. I like them very much.
That aside, the city they live in, I LOVE. It has the feeling of a cozy, green, charming, slightly fairy tale or medieval- like area. Like a magical little German village, but with sprawling homes and lots of greenery. The homes are stunning. The area is heavily wooded. I suspect the residents are heavily loaded as well ha ha. So its unlikely I will ever live in the area. But if I were to stay in Germany, this would be my dream home area for sure.
Stay tuned for another entry in the next couple days!
