"Love you, pho real"
Yesterday I met up with my girl @agent who I haven´t seen for a few months. Well, besides our trip to Greece last week. We are working so much that we literally had no time to go out and enjoy good food together. That´s why we decided to take a look at a new restaurant called "Rice Brothers" which @thehipsterguru recommended us. It is like a fancy asian restaurant in the middle of the hottest restaurant area in Hamburg.
I am really into asian food because you have so many dishes to choose from. An amazing taste, spicy or not spicy, healthy, variety and so many delicious herbs! When I took a look at the menu I couldnt really decide what I wanted to choose. Everything sounded so delicious. From fresh self made summer rolls to Vietnamese noodle soups and burger made of rice flour.
This time I chose the Bao Bao Burger because I have never heard of steamed burger buns with sweet & sour sauce, mango salad and fresh roasted chicken. As you can see, they have a bunch of traditional asian dishes.
Even the list of beverages was a surprise. They offer homemade drinks which tasted incredibly good. I am not a big fan of soft drinks anymore since they have so many artificial ingredients and sugar inside. I am drinking still water most of the time but when I see homemade drinks such as ice teas or smoothies, I am totally down to some sweet taste!
This time I went for something sparkling and ice cold because the weather was extremely hot and I needed a refreshment. I choose the "Gingerly". Fresh ginger, limes, mint and Ginger Ale on ice.
@agent chose something more creamy which was definitely a win! It is called the "Mango Mash". Mango mash, yogurt, coconut milk and mint leaves. The consistency was just perfect and the combination of the mango mash and coconut milk tasted like heaven!
The Bao Bao Burger
Steamed burger buns made of rice flour, tomatoes, cucumber, rocket, mango, fresh cilantro & salad. I topped it with a fresh roasted piece of chicken and crunchy sweet potato fries. This combination was new for me and even the steamed burger buns were pretty surprising. One bite already convinced me. The warm bread buns melting together with the fresh and cold mango pieces and a well seasoned piece of chicken were an incredible combination! My mouth is still watering...
Roasted Salmon & Chicken
@agent is THE food lover. She loves to try out new things but the asian cuisine is still her favorite. Whenever we are traveling, she is mostly the one who finds the great spots to eat and reminds us to take some time to enjoy food while working 24/7. She went for something more common which was a roasted piece of chicken and salmon. This was topped with a fresh mango salad, sweet & sour sauce and some crispy sweet potato fries.The whole mixture of fish, meat and mango were like a celebration on the tongue.
Matcha Ice Cream
I have a sweet tooth. Although my stomach was full of food, I still went for some Matcha Ice Cream. A few years ago, @agent discovered matcha for me. I haven´t tried it in my entire life and when she gave me some of her Matcha Frappuccino I immediately fell in love with the taste. @mrs.steemit and @agent were obsessed with Matcha and now after I got introduced to it, I always order anything with matcha as soon as I see it.
This Ice Cream was really good. I don´t like the artificial taste of matcha or if it is too bitter. This one was actually very tasty and I would order it a second time!
"You don´t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces... Just good food from fresh ingredients"
I am changing my nutrition constantly. We live in a very busy world and eating the right food can be challenging sometimes. We ware working most hours of the day which makes it hard to stand in the kitchen late at night to cook some fresh food. People tend to eat outside and order food from different restaurants. But this "fast" food is not good for your health. Surely the hype of a healthy living is swapping over to many countries and people build all these fitness blogger spots but we should come back to the kitchen and try to cook the food on our own. Only then you know whats inside and cooking with fresh ingredients is the best thing you can do to support your body.
Let me know if you want to see some recipes or anything food related.
What is your favorite dish?
