My Hamburg trip hasn’t been so great so far, especially after the shoddy meal at the mis-starred Se7en Oceans last night. My full day in Hamburg began poorly, so I needed something to bring me some relief…

Some call it a tourist trap, but it seems to attract a fully German clientele whenever I am there. In fact, except for the 2 dinners and at hotel reception I enjoyed being able to speak only German.

This classic place I immediately felt comfortable, a family owned little corner along the Nikolaifleet, though when it got busier I felt bad for the properietor that ran back and forth up and down to the kitchen! It was slow, but relaxing.
