Food update

I ventured out to dinner alone this evening, to a Greek restaurant across the street from my apartment. I don’t think anyone there spoke English, and I don’t speak German or Greek, but they seemed to recognize I needed and English menu. They had great food and I ate a bunch of gyro meat (which seemed to be real meat on a skewer, not the sliced stuff on sandwiches in B’more), some lamb which was tasty, french fries (of course), and something related to Spanish rice (red, had peas in it, didn’t eat it). The meal came with salad and I was expected Greek salad, or something similar. However, restaurants in Germany seem to have a great love for Thousand Island dressing. Hello, 1970’s USA. I had Thousand Island on the airplane, it’s the only salad dressing in the hospital cafeteria, and they served it at the Greek restaurant. At the end of the meal, the waiter brought a shot glass of something clear and glittering to the table for me. I have bad memories from college of clear drinks that appear to have glitter floating in them; so I took a miniscule sip, confirmed that it was indeed alcohol and tasted like licorice, and put it aside. Does anyone know what it was? Is it ouzo?


  1. Clear + glitter sounds like Goldschlager to me. You didn’t like that stuff before. I can’t imagine your reaction now, with Supernose ™.

  3. What an interesting palette cleanser. Some restaurant in Baltimore had mint looking candies that tasted like licorice (so not cool). On the bright side, you shouldn’t need a palette cleanser because you should be eating all the time. Shoot, don’t even bother brushing! (Well, until you come to bible study:) )
