Leipziger Maike Steuer has only a week left to raise enough money to buy a quality espresso machine for her intercultural café under construction at Leipzig north. If you feel like helping out with some bucks or spreading the word, read this post for more information or go directly to http://www.visionbakery.com/bohnenbubi.
Our food columnist is a sushi lover and has been craving it, but cannot eat raw meat or fish, since she’s pregnant – so what to do? She found a simple, yummy alternative we think you will love, too.
When you enter the café you immediately feel the fifties ambiance from the lamps to the tables and chairs. Then comes the menu. Instead of opting for a classical printed menu, the owners opted to invest a bit more in the design. The doodles of the food and drinks totally worked for me. In terms of content, their menu focused on quality instead of quantity; they have four breakfast options and perhaps six or seven lunch options, but almost all their products are regional and organic.
Intrigued by the title of this event-related post? Good. I’ll explain: Maike Steuer is in the process of transforming the site at Georg-Schumann-Str. 206 into an “intercultural cafe by September.” She invites you to come by Saturday, May 16, to check out the place, hang out, eat, chat and listen to some literature. Nice, cosy way to spend a springtime Saturday afternoon…
I once met a guy who was learning in all possible languages the sentence “I am a strawberry, eat me!” Then when he met people from a specific nationality, he would say it in their language with a perfect accent. He said it was a nice ice breaker. I am not sure how successful it has been. Anyway, I thought of it as a nice title for my first recipe here in this blog.
