Kreuzberg in Augsburg

There’s something magical about those football nights. And I don’t mean the noise and the excitement around all those public viewing spaces and places. In those nights you can have some amazing places just for your own. Nearly no one is wandering the streets. I think except for sometimes around five-o’clock in the morning I’ve never seen the Maxtraße this empty. Also no car is crossing your view when you’re capturing the sundown at the lovely bridge in the Bismarkviertel. Almost looks a little bit like Paris. Almost.

I’ve heard the only the cheering from afar last night. My magical spot to spend this warm and swinging summer night was the ecological and vegan restaurant “Lokalhelden” in the heart of the Bismarkviertel. Finally I found matcha-latte in Augsburg and they might have the best hummus you’ve ever eaten in your whole life. It’s flavoured with beetroot which gives it a deep-red colour and a fresh and fruity taste.Served with naan-bread it’s just the perfect dinner after a long summer-day.

A vegan restaurant at the side of a street. good matcha and food – actually I’m used to that kind of spirit only in Berlin. It slightly felt like a warm evening in Kreuzberg…:)

Pad Thai / original

I killed you with all my japanese food, so now it’s time for something new: original Thai Pad-Thai. The well known and loved dish.

I tried to take some photographs while cooking for giving you a step by step guide.

You need:

main ingredience:

100g rice noodles

100g Tofu (not the glibbery one you put into miso-soup!)

100g chicken breast

100g sprouts

4 garlic cloves

2 spring onions

2 eggs

for the taste:

a spoonful of brown sugar, oyster sauce, fish-sauce, peanuts, chilli and one lime!

Depending if you’re using fresh noodles or dried rice noodles you need to put them into warm water and let them soak.

Then start out with heating up some sesame-oil (or any other neutral oil). Put in the garlic then the chicken and the tofu. Stir it for a minute and put it aside or take it out. Now put in the eggs, let them crumble and then put in the drained noodles. Mash everything together and season it with the fish.sauce, oyster sauce and brown sugar. Finally put in the sprouts and spring onions.

You should have ready everything in advance. If you wait to long between the steps your noodles will turn into some undefinable mass.

Put everything on a plate an decorate with peanuts and the lime!

Have fun! ❤
