    There are a bunch of Portuguese places along Ditmar-Koel-Straße; the one I picked randomly "Porto," wasn't all that great, but I have a feeling some of the others might be good. Anyone know?

      Definitely visit the Fischmarkt on Sunday morning and do breakfast there!

        The Fischmarkt figures prominently in a key scene of the foodie film Mostly Martha, most of which is set in Hamburg. Bropaul, I assume breakfast there includes treats such as hareng?

          Not mandatory, but I'm sure they are available!

          A night out in St. Pauli followed by a smoked eel or krabbensalat sandwich at the fischmarkt.

          Going on Wednesday of this week. Here are the three places that I'm targeting based on some research. May be a bust -- I'll post after I've been there (have some great places for Berlin, but Hamburg is a bit of a question mark):

          Haerlin, Raffles Hotel Vier Jehreszeiten, Neuer Jungfernstieg 9-14, 3494-3310

          East, Simon-von-Utrecht-Str.31, 20359

          Schauermann, Hafenstrasse 136-138, 3179-4660

            I don't know if you've tried doing a search on this CH board, but I just tried it and only one post came up (below) and it got no recs! I got 139 CH posts on Berlin.

            Just a thought, but maybe the better way to go is to ask for a German guide book that chowhounders have used with good results.

              Have an Alsterwasser - Beer and lemon/lime soda. It's a truly local thing (at least the name is).
