Päffgen Kölsch

Comes highly recommended by a friend whom I wasn’t able to meet up with this time unfortunately. Our köbes Peter has a photo of himself stickered on his kranz and seemed gruff at first but warmed up to us as best as he could with tourists who don’t speak much German. We were there two times in a day, that’s how good it is. By the end of our second session — one intense Germany-Ghana fußball match and 20 glasses of kölsch later — in its leafy biergarten, our German still leaves much to be desired but Peter gave us a complimentary glass of kölsch for the road (back to Düsseldorf). I haven’t drunk this much beer in a long time.

Never would have thought Düsseldorf would be the place to get a decent bowl of ramen but it apparently is thanks to a tip-off from new friends at the wedding. The Japanese waitress asked if I would like my noodle portion klein or normal and was a little taken aback when I indicated that I would like groß, bitte. My tsukemen was delicious, as delicious as if I had ordered it in Japan. Düsseldorf, you may be a little dreary but you sure beat Paris hands down when it comes to ramen.

A midsummer German wedding

At the wedding, we befriended a lovely French/Taiwanese couple from Paris we hope to see again soon and the German DJ gets my thumbs up for playing this track at the post-party. It only took a trip to Germany — seeing Taiwanese girlfriends of the bride converse in fluent German with their spouses — for me to feel guilty for the first time that I’m not speaking French more often with the husband.
