Into the Doorway of Food, where it's all about Eating...
Let's start the journey into my world of food...
Different tastebuds with different tongues; you're the eater and you're the judge... What I share here is simply the passion towards food and drinks.

I'm a greedy eater that I want to try various meat dishes that they're serving here, thus we've decided to order the Rachi-Teller Für 2 Personen that consists of Schweinelendchen, Gyros, Suvlaki, Kalamari, Muscheln, Fleischpflanzerl dazu Pommes Frites und Salate. We're firstly being served with the Salad that is garnished with only the vinegar and olive oil, it tastes very refreshing. The main character in Griechische is the Tzatziki that is the yogurt and cucumber based sauce that tastes very creamy and heavy. The smooth texture and the freshness of the cucumber are urging people to taste it more and more... But, the Tzatziki normally makes people feeling very full easily.
Back to the big platter, my favourite is always the Gyros. It's the roasted meat on the vertical spit that is then sliced into thin, crisp pieces. The sliced meat is salty that it goes well either with the lightly grilled Pita Bread that has a nice aroma of the Oregano or only with the Tzatziki. Schweinelendchen is the pork fillet that has been marinated with plenty of herbs and being grilled to dryness that it has some "chewing" strength in the mouth. On the other hand, Suvloki is slightly different whereby the pork meat is poked onto the stick and I prefer Suvloki than the Schweinelendchen because the meat is more tender and the aroma of the herbs is stronger. The Fleischpflanzerl is the minced meat that has been mixed with a lot of onion and then being rolled alike meat ball before fried to the dark brownish colour. I dislike the minced meat as it has a strong smell. Both of the fried Muscheln (Mussel) and Kalamari (Squid) are quite tasty except that the flour coating is the soft type that they don't sound or taste crispy. Of course, the seafood is not as fresh as what we can get in M'sia but they're edible...
I've definitely an overfull stomach after the Greek food. As per the tradition, we're served with the digestive alcoholic drink that is called Ouzo. It's spicy but it's definitely the best timing! Over all, I'm not really amazed by the remaining dishes in the platter except the Gyros and my favourite Tzatziki. I think, it'll be another year before I've my Grischiche again.

The funclub is linked to the Madan's Gaststätte - Restaurant whereby they're serving mainly the Pizza and Pasta here. We're surprised by the Pizza Salame that is tomato-based and being garnished simply with Salami and Cheese. It's an authentic Italian taste of thin and crusty Pizza. Being topped with a very thin layer of Cheese that is sufficient only to satisfy the taste bud, the Chef is indeed using a good quality of Cheese that seems to be Emmenthaler. The Salami is not so salty or it's not the best Salami that I've ever tasted, but the Pizza is in over all very delicious. I'm really amazed that I've tasted a tasty Pizza at a small funclub that is really outskirt of Regensburg Town.
We've enjoyed the food at the funclub Grünthal and the best is we've spent a sporting time here with the kids.

Breakfast in the early morning, we've stopped by the Wurstshop at Globus to buy for ourselves the Leberkäse Semmel that costs only € 1.20 each. Leberkäse actually consists of meat that is usually beef and pork, bacon and onion and it's then made of by grinding the ingredients finely before being baked alike a bread loaf. In short, it can be called as meat loaf. The Leberkäse is baked till it gets a crunchy brown crust at the outer layer. It tastes quite salty that it should go perfectly with a plain bun. Senf or commonly being known as Mustard is recommended to go together with Leberkäse Semmel as it'll give some "juiciness" that the meat loaf doesn't taste too dry. I'm impressed by Leberkäse whereby the ingredients are so fine that they're "arranged" in organized lines that it's very tender and smooth in the mouth.
I've enjoyed the Leberkäse so much that I've a few more trials during my trip in Germany. I'm not so fancy with bun or bread that I've always eaten only the meat loaf with Senf and I'm completely satisfied with it. Leberkäse can be easily obtained in any stalls or shops throughout Germany but the recommendation is to visit the one that is selling meat products as well. The reason is because they're the expert in making tastier and more tender Leberkäse than any fast food stalls.
I'm missing to have Leberkäse in M'sia...
To fulfil my wish, we've ordered the Knusprig gebackene Ente auf Gemüse mit Soße nach Wahl or the Crispy Duck with Vegetable and Sauce of Your Choice that ranges from Sweet-Sour, Shacha, Gong Bao to Curry. The duck meat is not so salty or flavourful that it's actually quite tasteless while the skin is not the crispy type that I've always wished for. Besides, the fried vegetable is too soft and I don't like the over-use of bamboo shoots that the whole plate of mixed vegetable tastes alike. Tasting it once and I dare not to try again the Gong Bao Sauce that is extremely too salty. Oppositely, the additional dish of Schweinefleisch mit Morcheln, Bambussprossen und Knoblauch is delicious. The Pork with Morels or Black Fungus, Bamboo Shoots and Garlic is classified as scharf or spicy but it's indeed appetizing with the slight spiciness. I find the dish to be quite salty but luckily that it's tasty to go with white rice. I like especially the pork meat that is very succulent and juicy.
Not really amazed by the food, but I'm at least satisfied with the friendly service of the waitress. Moreover, the restaurant is just alike a beautiful panorama view that can be enjoyed while having a relaxing dinner. The greatest happiness of mine is actually the warm plum wine that is served at the end of the dinner. It's very smooth and refreshing.
