This Number 22 and a beer comes to us from Tobias Krämer. I am always happy to have non-asian 22s, if only to knock over the stereotype that only Asian restaurants use numbers. Actually I am currently thinking about calling my local government representative to have him sponsor a bill at the EU, that would require all restaurants to number their menus. Even the ones with really good food.
Tobias Number 22 and a beer is from a portuguese place in Hamburg, Germany. I know this area well as it is in my hometown, and being near the harbor this listing is particularly of interest for tourists who plan to visit Hamburg reading this site, I love my hometown but this quote from comedian Mike Myers as Dieter on the hilarous SNL-Skit “sprockets” sums up the atmosphere of this city best:” Ahh, Hamburg. A place where you can skate home on other people’s frozen vomit.”

My Nummer 22 & a beer comes from a nice portuguese Restaurant in Hamburg, Germany, which is called “O Pescador”. It is a two minutes walk from the S- and U-Bahn Station “Landungsbrücken” to the Ditmar-Koel-Straße, where a lot of portuguese and spanish restaurants reside.
Number 22 is a starter called “Tapas Chef Style” with ham, cheese, olives and pickles. This dish itself is nothing special, but the fish in that restaurant is awesome.
So if you like fish and don’t want to spend much money (6€ the starter, about 12€ the main couse), it is a good choise to go there. There is a nice atmosphere and decoration, but you should make a reservation if you don’t want to wait for a free table.
