Eating in Europe
Posted October 11, 2012on:
My husband thinks it is amusing that I take pictures of the food we eat while travelling. But I find it is part of the good memories. And we ate some great food on the latest trip to Europe. The first fabulous meal was at Cafe Opera in Altea, Spain. I had been to Cafe Opera once 8 years ago. Both experiences have been wonderful and I was pleased to see it had not changed. The cafe overlooks the Mediterranean and the large outdoor seating area is surrounded by greenery. The tablecloths are decorated with sheet music and the menu, in four languages, looks like the program for an opera performance. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Inside the café, the walls are decorated with musical instruments and drawings of composers. But the best part is the food. I had a Beethoven salad eight years ago which was amazing. This time I opted for the Tchaikovsky salad and was not disappointed. I savoured every morsel. The bill came in a delightful small music box.
The meals on the Sound of Music were incredible as well. There was something for everyone’s tastes and so nicely presented. The highlight was always the desserts. Here are a couple of examples.
We love to search out cute little tea/coffee shops wherever we go. We found this adorable tea shop in La Manga, Spain
And we found many wonderful coffee shops in in Vienna, including one that served generous portions of ice cream.
Since we have returned home it has been difficult to not have dessert three times a day! We have been eating the fabulous gingerbread we brought back from Nuremberg, Germany sparingly, to make it last.
Writing this post has made me hungry. There must be some German chocolate around here somewhere.
