Short and simple – the food at IKEA is really cheap and the quality is really bad.
I´ve never been a big fan of this place but from time to time I go there to buy some fresh furniture. I want to be part of the yuppie hype too…
Anyway – I had a classical german Schnitzel with french fries and cream sauce. It was more cold than hot, the Schnitzel reminded me of my morning newspaper and the fries have never seen some salt. At least the sauce was okay, but also not a celebration for my palate. My girlfriend had some organic noodle casserole with tomato and cheese. The whole thing was dry like a desert, I couldn´t find any cheese and it was cold too.
The only good thing was the free refill for the soft drinks. My no-name coke tasted a little bit like a mixture of CoCa Cola (Coke) with some lemon limonade. Ohhh and the 2nd good thing was the price – not even 10 EUR for 2 persons is incredibly cheap.
Our menu :
– Schnitzel with french friens and cream sauce
– organic noodle casserole with tomato and cheese
– no-name coke
Well it´s not one of my best protected secrets and so everyone who knows me or have seen me may already guess it : I like eating ! So from this point of view I decided to write a little bit about interesting places I visited to gain some food.
This is gonna be the first review, more to follow soon.

The Alt Weimar is a higher class restaurant with a small but very interesting menu. Though I didn´t knew most of the items on the menu (or haven´t heard their names either) it was one of the best meals of my life.
The reason for that might be star cook Sten Fischer (http://www.fiese-koeche.de) who did a great job in serving an extraordinary, fresh and free of food additives dish.
Honestly – with 72,70 EUR for 2 persons it was not cheap and above my normal investment in food. But it was absolutely worth it.
My girlfriend did an interview with Sten Fischer about his job for her study and if we are lucky it will be available here soon.
The Alt Weimar has a website, too : http://www.alt-weimar.de – if you want to know more – check it out.
And last but not least – our menu (with absolutely no warranty for the translation) :
– selfmade woodruff punch
– goose liver soam soup
– anchorena lamb
– herb ribbon noodles
– variation from the frozen ananas
– variation from the torka bean
