Food #003: Carrot ginger soup with sweet potatoes

What: Lunch @ Herriot’s.
Cost: < 4 Euros.

Herriot’s canteen in Frankfurt served a very delicious soup made from carrots, ginger and sweet potatoes. They have a tendency to put salt into their soups like it’s going out of style, but not this time. Spicy, but not too hot, it was a perfect mix with a few chunks of soft carrots hidden in it. I ate it all with a poppyseed roll.

The dessert was meant to be Creme brûlée, but they were out so I picked the walnut and croquant mousse with rosemary oranges. That was okay, although the mix was a bit odd. Some parts were crunchy, others very soft.

All in all a very good, above average lunch, though.

Food #002: Nougat Macchiato

A few weeks ago, I treated myself to nougat macchiato at Herriot’s. I could spoil this story by going into detail about how it might have been a nougat cappuccino or something of that sort, and that it might not have been weeks ago but months ago, but bear with me. It was busy, so you pay first and then wait for them to come up with your drink, and so when the friendly coffee man put a beverage in front of me, I said something to the effect of, “Dear Sir, pray tell me, is this the nougat beverage I requested?”

His answer took a little while:

Nougat written on my beverage with chocolate syrup

If it has nougat written on it, that’s probably what’s in it.
