My favorite places to go to in Hamburg.

Hamburg used to be scarce on açai bowls… Not anymore! I tested all nine places, all quite different from one another but also very different from what I excepted. . . Here I tried to describe them each by their consistency, taste, toppings, and price. You’ll see which ones are my favorites for which reason.

♦ Eimsbüttel ♦ Knödel ♦ Alpine Flair ♦ Casual ♦ Delicious ♦

Sometimes I write an entry after my first outing in a new café – I guess, there’s no second try needed to convince me – or maybe just because I can’t afford to sample each dish in every café between school, sport, piano… 🙃  However, in other places I do wait a whole year desperate to be enlightened with each individual of their recipes.  Even if I love everything from the first day.

That’s Alpenkantine.

♦ Ottensen ♦ Poached Eggs ♦ Avocado ♦ Pancakes ♦

I have the impression that the new standard for breakfast places is avocado toast with poached eggs, at least in Germany that’s the new  discovery.  It seems to somehow qualify an eatery to some higher level – or maybe it just makes me think that they have some higher concept… a better one than just nicely assorted fruit, three different kinds of German rolls and samples of jam and cheese… however nice it’s made up to be, it’s just not my cup of tea.

In Berlin I wouldn’t say this is a very new thing, but in Hamburg the only avocado & poached egg combo I’ve had was in my kitchen – until, I came upon RAIN Cafeatery in the heart of Ottensen.

Eimsbüttel : ITALIAN ♦ Sternschanze: HIPSTER ♦
Ottensen: INNOVATIVE-INDUSTRIAL ♦

This hanseatic town has delicious and different types of pizza to offer.  Lots of classical Italian, but also innovative, creative and the build-your-own kind.  Below are my three favorite pizzerias to go to – they all differ quite a lot from each other.  It really depends on where you are, who you’re going with, and what you feel like eating to decide which one you opt for.

Luicella’s is the only ice cream shop in Hamburg that has crazy cool varying flavors, among them a large selection of vegan ones and child scoops. And now even porridge breakfasts on Lange Reihe!
