Evening event in Nurnberg town

The organizers were kind enough to arrange for a dinner treat on one of the evenings in the historical town.
Tucked away from the busy streets is the Golden Geier bistro cafe.
Geier, as we found out was actually a German word for Scavenger.

I took the train to the town; just out of fun

I found this little restaurant which was pretty low profile to the locals

There was a nice live performance by their very own bistro singer

For starters, we were served with the smoked salmon salad

Since I opted for the vegetarian meal, I was served with this tomato basil soup

It was really much better than the soup served for the rest.

However, I couldn't say the same for my main course...which turned out to be so horrible!

It was too salty and too oily!

I took a bite and that was it!
Even my other colleagues who tasted it told me the same thing:p

Okay, I have gotta quote my Italian friend, "German food is really not for me"
It is really not my cup of tea nor my plate of food.
I really didn't quite like the food here...and my Italian friend was going on and on about how lousy German food is compared to Italian.
Talk about Germans and Italian fiends...:)

Apart from the food, everyone did enjoy the evening so much that it will always remain as one of the best memories in our minds:)
