    Schlabbergass: Average taste but comfy

    by HanDam Written Jul 15, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I liked the interior, it was very woody and they had decoration trees around the tables.
    The waiter was nice and chatty.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered Schnitzel crumbed with Zigeuner sauce (red paprika sauce) and Schnitzel natural with pepper sauce. As it has been a long time, that I met a welldone delicious Schnitzel at a restaurant, I did not expect much. And so it was. The crumbed Schnitzel was a bit chewy and also the crumb and sauce just average. Schnitzel natural without the crumb was slightly juicy but also average.
    The side dishes were chips and a small portion of salad. The salad was drowning in joghurt dressing.

    But the dessert was a welcome rematch, we ordered homemade Tiramisu and a apple strudel with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious and worth the money.

    Chibiya: Japanese Fast food

    by HanDam Written Jun 8, 2014

    Chibiya is a cute japanese restraurant with a lot of posters, a original payment machine and small homemade decorations. The menu has a limited offer, which makes it simple.
    The kitchen is very open, so you can watch every step of the 2 girls preparing the dishes.
    Minus: the barstools are loose Big Plus: the second floor is comfortable and has bookshelfs for manga lovers.

    Favorite Dish: Dishes: The Katsudon ( Bowl of rice with a sweet asian omelett and schnitzel) was delicious, but needs to upgrade from the average level. The rice and the schnitzel were a little dry and the coating was a bit to soaked up.
    The Garlic Gyudon ( Rice Bowl with thin beef with sweet soy sauce) was good, had the right amount of sauce and also the meat was good.
    Dessert: Strawberry-Ricecake ( Strawberry coated in rice cake) for 2,50€ was a bit much, I did not like it much.

    All in all, a nice trip, if you don´t want to cook and want something homely and cheap.

    Sushi Trier: Best Sushi of Trier

    by HanDam Updated Jun 8, 2014

    There are a few Sushi restaurants in Trier, but this one has reached the perfect mix of quality&price.
    It´s a small place dressed up like a simple café.
    My favorite Sushi place here.

    Service:
    The only always changing waitress is busy doing her work, had never to complain about the service, but the orders are taking a little long.
    We always go for lunch and try to be there at 12, because the lunch time is from 12 - 14h and place is limited. The lunch menu only costs 10€! :)

    Favorite Dish: Can´t wait to tell you, the first time I was there, my happiness level barometer reached a 100% for an hour after we left this one Sushi treasure.

    The Lunch Menu..
    You can choose from 7 Menus and some rolls can be swapped with rolls of your choice.
    All menus are with Green tea and Miso soup included.
    What should I say.. just try it.

    Oh, and there are often trainees rolling the sushi, so sometimes they have small appearance lacks like different heights etc but.. it doesn´t effect the taste.
    And try the desserts too!

    Sad news.. it still is my favorite sushi here, but the service lacks a bit and also the dishes are not the same anymore. As I said, the makis are not cut with much love, last time I also got the end piece of my california roll, forced downward so I recognized later, why it was aslope.
    The Teriyaki Chicken Menu came normally with normal warm rice, last time we got the sushi rice, which was cold and sour. The Nigiris have a great amount of rice.
    The miso soup was not really warmed up, so the tofu in it was still cold. ..
    To sum up, they shoud pay more attention to the little things, that also decide over the taste.

    Dolce Cielo: Nice Café for Vegans

    by HanDam Written Apr 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cute Café is on the Neustraße, so if you´re tired of the chaos on the main street, the Neustrasse is good for a rest.
    Dolce Cielo is a good choice for Vegans, they have vegan cakes, chocolates and coffee varieties with milk or soy milk etc.

    Favorite Dish: Wraps (vegan)
    We had 1 wrap with Salsa because the one with humus was out of stock.
    It was delicious, fresh and healthy :) Btw, big portions.

    Waffles (vegan)
    Had one with Banana and one with Strawberry. It is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, tastes a bit oily, like it is fried.

    Cake Pops
    The cake filling is very smooth and chocolaty with nut bits.

    Coffee&Drinks
    Personally I´m not a big fan of sweet drinks and coffee, and there are so many variations with sirups ans stuff! But according to others, it tastes good^^

    Taj Mahal: Being on an Indian Train

    by HanDam Written Apr 18, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Location: at the end of Neustrasse on the 2nd floor
    Service: been 2x there, always nice and fast cooking time
    Ambience: It feels like I´m on an Indian train :D funky indian fittings

    Favorite Dish: At first, they serve you Papadam, a big thin crispy thing, with 3 dips ( Mango Chutney/ Mint Yoghurt/ pickled vegetables in a very salty red paste *put in order of personal taste*)

    Main Dish: They come with a real good fresh made Nan bread and a load of Basmati rice.
    Main dishes quite look similar, because most of them are covered with a thick curry sauce.
    The sauce is a bit heavy to my taste but I still like it!

    You can vary the spiciness level from Mild to Kinda hot to SUPER HOT.. for every meal.
    If you are always disappointed of the "European" Spiciness and want a real small nice firework on your tongue, try the SUPERHOT thing ;) I liked it!

    PS. And 2 main dishes need huge bellies, because the thick curry sauces need to go with a lot of rice and Nan, so we´ll try to take one main dish with several appetizers and dessert next time :)

    Fornelli: Kinda Italian

    by HanDam Written Jan 24, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The type of Italian restaurant, that doesn´t spend much money on interior design but has nice food.
    It´s divided into two parts, a smaller front room and bigger saloon behind, made my way back to the front room, which was kinda romantic, while the hall behind looked like the living room of somebody. If you want dinner for two, take the room in front.

    Service was gentle, toilets are very clean.

    We were given some bread, good olive oil and 2 good dips as a starter.
    Nice Prices.

    Favorite Dish: Spaghetti Capri:
    With white wine, seafood. I asked, if the seafood was fresh, it was, but depends on the day. The fish on card seemed to be delivered freshly too. The spaghetti was really good, had scored the discreet flavor of seafood spaghetti. Nice.

    Vitello Schnitzel with mushroom cream sauce:
    It came with a big salad and thin fries.
    Was ok, like an average good Schnitzel, but there are a lot of bad Schnitzels around.
    It might be too much, so think about taking the smaller portion for children.

    Dessert:
    Had a Threesome Cream Brulee, Tiramisu and Panna Cotta, the amounts were more little than I thought, but it was the right amount after dinner.

    Krim: Krim

    by antistar Updated Oct 16, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More mediterranean than Italian, this was some of the best pub grub I've eaten in Germany, or possibly anywhere. The food was top notch, the pasta was perfectly al dente and the aromatic pesto just sang through the beer. All I wanted was a simple dish, and I think it says a lot that they could make something so simple taste so good.

    The location is also excellent, on the busy Glockenstrasse, in the center near the Porta Nigra. You can sit in the snug at the back by the bar, or at the front near the large bay windows and people watch.

    Cafe Lecca: Friendly, cosy, free wifi, home-made cakes!

    by leics Updated Feb 28, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A super little bar/cafe in a very convenient location, right by the railway station.

    It's quite small inside (there's a covered patio area outside for smokers, with space heaters) and the staff are extremely friendly.

    I was drawn by the home-made cakes and I wasn't disappointed: the huge piece of cheesecake in the photo was superb. And very reasonably-priced as well: 'kaffee und kuchen' (coffee and cake) came to less than 5 euro.

    And games too: they have a regular chess night (Mondays), bingo, backgammon..and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays they show Champion's League football matches live.

    And free wifi and W-LAN, of course.

    This is a very comfortable place with absolutely no pretensions to being anything other than it is. Highly recommended for a cake or a light snack (toasted sandwiches, baguettes, light breakfasts etc).

    If I lived in Trier, I'd be a regular. :-)

    Cumvino: pleasant evening

    by iaint Written Dec 14, 2012

    Our seminar dinner in December 12 was held here. I’d walked past plenty times as its on the way into town from the ERA, so my curiosity was satisfied.

    I looks nice from the outside, and its fine inside too apart from being (as far as I could see) a series of private dining areas - presumably for for tourists mostly.

    We had a fixed menu and the potato soup, fried chicken & tiramisu were good - not exciting, but then if you’re catering for 30-40 foreigners best to pay safe.

    The place is owned by a local vineyard so in different circumstances we might have been tasting quite a few. We were each rationed to 2 glasses. Enjoyed them.

    Company was good too, so a pleasant evening.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken, I suppose. Or can I go for the wine?

    Zum Domstein: enjoyed it...

    by iaint Written Dec 13, 2012

    If I remember correctly this place is labelled “touristy” by my guide book. Well last night I was so cold by the time I’d walked into town from the hotel, I wasn’t too choosy.

    It was busy. I didn’t see many locals in there. My food was good, and so was the service.

    For €26 I got a main course, dessert and coffee, plus a beer and a glass of (excellent) local red. Yep, red wine in the Mosel.

    Pretty good value. With the £ at €1.30 its a bit difficult to judge, but still.

    Favorite Dish: The mixed red berries for dessert.

    Pizzamanufaktur Pellolitto: special

    by iaint Updated Sep 20, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Is it Italian if it sells pizza? Not sure. Pizza with chanterelles?

    The place is tiny. 4-5 tables outside. About the same inside.

    Well, the pizza was small & expensive (€8) but really good. Truly home made. Served with garlic, chilli & anchovy oils.

    The wine - Kräutwingert Riesling. Also not cheap, but great (and I'm not a Riesling drinker, at all).

    Two exceptional extra elements. First, sitting outside to eat at dusk in late September. Second, doing that "in the shadow" of the cathedral as the setting sun shone on it. Wonderful.

    The German word for it is Gemütlichkeit. It doesn't translate well.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza, I suppose.

    right there, on the right.

    Cafe Calchera: Cosy yet crowded

    by Maria250 Updated Aug 26, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Calchera is an Italian Ice Cafe, and a cosy location yet very crowded with almost every seat taken. Haven't had ice cream there but a very tasty sandwich and coffee. Calchera is known as the oldest Italian Ice Cafe in Trier.

    Cafe/Restaurant Hauptmann: Lovely place on pedestrian zone

    by Maria250 Updated Jul 27, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If the weather cooperates, Cafe/Restaurant Hauptmann's is a perfect spot to have breakfast at their outdoor tables. Very nice area without any traffic. Their buffett provids with a nice selection of different juices, fruits, breadrolls, cereals, yoghurts, scrambled or fried eggs etc.

    Cafe Sim: Creamy coffee

    by Maria250 Updated Jul 27, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Been there for just a cup of coffee which was quite good, hot and creamy. Cafe is comfortable close to Porta Nigra Gate what means it's the perfect spot for that see and to be seen thing, for those that are into that. Near by is also the tourist information, train and different bus stations.

    Ratskeller Zur Steipe: Good food right on the market square

    by Husker_Jeff Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has a nice outdoor area right by the cross on the market square. We enjoyed beers and wine befire having dinner. Nicole had the nudeln, what seemed to be a fusion of German and Italian. I had the Wiener Schnitzel. Both dishes were good and the service was better than average. Two glasses of wine, two beers, two dinners for 46 Euros.

    Favorite Dish: Wiener Schnitzel
