Hamburg Doener

Quick mini-report on HD. If you were not aware, they took over the mighty midget kitchen building and have moved their old service to provide an out door sitdown "dining experience". If by dining experience you mean "drink beer and eat german street food." Which is something *I* definitely do.

Wienerschnitzel, doener, currywurst and something else... plus fries (very good, properly made double fried). Thats about it on the food menu, but it is all done well and makes your stomach say "hey, what about a beer." Which of course makes you say "I'll take a draught beer please" to the person behind the counter, which means you want one of a few semi unpronounceable german beers. No corona, bud or other "beer like" alcoholic beverages available and definitely not taking up tap room. The beer is served in a big glass designed for the type of beer you just ordered.

Fortunately I don't live in leesburg, otherwise I would be seriously working on a beer and french fry gut.

BTW: Dont go on monday, unless there is a soccer game on. Then only if you want beer cause they don't have food then.

  1. Sounds great. Wish I checked the board before leaving my house this morning - I went right by Leesburg. Hope they have some kolsch's on tap.

      I can pronounce kolsch, therefor that is not what they had on tap :) They had a lager and a hefe tapped, and about 6-7 other german beers. All of good quality, some with flavors only a beer lover desires. (yeasty, thick and tasty. mmm)
