Seeking Chowhoundish info/things to do in Hamburg, GERMANY
- Howard-2 May 12, 2006 09:42 AM
Any suggestions as to restaurants, markets, or other food sites that will be interesting? Tnx.
Have an Alsterwasser - Beer and lemon/lime soda. It's a truly local thing (at least the name is).
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.
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
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?
