What: Fresh white asparagus with smoked salmon & a Hollandaise sauce
Where: Friesen Keller (Hamburg, Germany)
Note: The Friesen Keller is a typical Hamburg restaurant with efficient and friendly service, and hearty portions. The restaurant also has an outdoor terrace which boasts fantastic views of Hamburg’s famous landmark, the Rathaus. Late-spring is asparagus season and the Friesen Keller serves it with a variety of meats (including the ubiquitous schnitzel) and fish.
The asparagus with fresh smoked salmon was delicious. The wine that accompanied it, a German Riesling, was simply beautiful and came in a gorgeous tear-shaped bottle.
