L’Assiette au Boeuf, Metz, France

boeuf1I went for a “late” dinner to L’Assiette au Boeuf (after 9 pm on a Sunday night in Metz can be sonsidered late), and I soon came to the conclusion it was a good idea. The spot by the river Moselle is very nice, the menu is limited: mainly beef (hence the name) and some fish as well, but with such a name, you know what you’re getting. It litterally means “Beef Plate”.
The very friendly staff brings you the cut meat cooked as you wished on a plate and french fries are as much as you want served in your plate.
The beef is very tasty and the fries good, a very good place indeed!

QBA, the heat of Cuba in Berlin

IMG_2283I had often heard of QBA, a Cuban bar/restaurant in Mitte, on Oranienburger Straße, very close to the S-bahn station. I recently went for a nice evening with friends.

They have an interesting cocktail menu, I first tried their Tropical Punch, fruity rhum-based cocktail to go with my beef and cheese nachos. Food menu looks nice, I really liked the nachos de picadillo, quite huge portion actually.

A band was playing live that evening, as it often happens. Excellent latino music, along with an old Cuban rhum, perfect setting to warm up body and soul. Atmosphere is great, staff is very friendly, great service, prices are ok, a very good spot I might return to once in a while.

Rosengarten am Engelbecken

IMG_2239During the festivities for the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, we went along the old border where lighted balloons were aligned with a friend. At some point we started getting hungry and cold and decided to stop for dinner. We ended up having a nice experience at Rosengarten am Engelbecken close to U Heinrich-Heine-Straße, in Kreuzberg/Mitte.

This is a cosy little restaurant by the canal, very friendly staff, food mainly German. I hesitated between Käsespätzle and burger and finally went for the cheeseburger with bacon. Bun was slightly toasted, meat juicy and fresh, rosmarin potatoes really tasty as well. Really good. My friend was happy with her sausage and mashed potatoes. The waiter was very sweet and the prices really fair, a very good adress!
