I am glad to say that I am back and all bones are where they should be, and in as many segments as our maker intended.

The snow, sun and skiing were great, but sadly no 22s were to be found in the Austrian Alps. While I was away a few more did come in from faithful readers. This entry is from Jill Koglatis (text) and André Sander (photo) from Berlin. Thanks for your contribution!

Above all I would like to commend André and Jill for their bravery. Actually eating in a restaurant that uses dishes such as those pictured below, is a feat I would compare to willing yourself to jump off a bridge attached by nothing more than a rubber band. For some reason I can’t help thinking the restaurant owners must have picked up the china at the going-out-of-business-sale of this fine establishment.

(The actual menu and the one available online differ.)

Noodle soup with chicken, 5,50 €
(Beer: Saigon, 2,70 €)

We were a bit disappointed that number 22 was a soup, but since we skipped ordering number 22 at another place a few days ago because it was soup, this time we did not chicken out.
The soup looked very healthy, was a bit spicy and not the ideal dish for people who hate cilantro and the like.
The staff was friendly (in Berlin this always has to be mentioned).

Today’s Number 22 and a beer comes to us from reader Holger Boerner of Berlin. Thanks Holger for the dish and recommendation.

If you are travelling through Germany on a budget Berlin is a great bet. In no other German city will you encounter as many restaurants with good food and almost ridiculously low prices. In a Thai place in Friedrichshain I actually once had a vegetarian coconut soup that cost less than the beer. And the brew was domestic!

Holger opted for a german classic: malt beer. Not actually beer, this non-alcoholic beverage is sweet and dark brown and a favorite among german kids. “Zis iss a bier, zat makes us look like ze grone ups!”
I guess it is one of those things you have to grow up with to appreciate. I hate it, then again, I have never ever met a German who likes root beer.
