I had such a busy weekend! Here is what I've been up to...
This photo should have been part of my previous post "Thursday". I tried the So Vegi burger from the So Food Truck. I had high expectations but I found myself a bit disappointed. There wasn't enough cheese on it and there could have been more sauce. A bit of a dry experience.
On Friday evening I met with my sister's girlfriends in order to plan her hen night, which will happen sometime in spring 2015. We had dinner at K116 in Esch. I didn't really know the girls; I had only seen them briefly once or twice before but it was fun to hang out with them and get to know them better.
This is what the K116 café gourmand looks like.
116, Rue de Luxembourg
My Spanish friend was visiting from Saturday and as it was his first time in Luxembourg, I took him to cosy Juegdschlass, a Luxembourg restaurant, for lunch.
They have Kachkéis on their menu and I wanted him to try this Luxembourg speciality.
It is cold cooked cheese. I personally love it but eat it rarely.
As a main I chose tagliatelle with prawns.
It was really nice to eat at Juegdschlass again. It's becoming part of my favourite restaurants in Luxembourg City.
400, Rue des Sept-Arpents
After lunch we drove to the City to look at the main sights. We were so lucky that the weather was absolutely superb for early October. The sun was out and it was hot.
In the evening we went to a Diwali celebration organized by the Indian Association Luxembourg. Friends of mine were there as well and together we had Indian food and enjoyed a show including Indian dancing and music.
After dinner we had more drinks at Urban and then we left for Kayl, a village in the south of Luxembourg, where I wanted to attend the Oktoberfest. Unfortunately, when we got there the tent was full and we couldn't enter. The party looked really amazing from the outside. The tent was rocking! Disappointed we then went to a village pub for drinks before going home.
On Sunday my friend and I visited the Vianden Castle. It's one of the touristic highlights of Luxembourg.
For lunch, I had booked a table at Aal Veinen, which is the number one restaurant in Vianden according to Tripadvisor.
We shared garlic bread as a starter.
My main course was a mushroom omelette. Overall the restaurant experience was very positive and I would eat there again.
After lunch we took the chairlift to enjoy the view over Vianden.
When you reach the top of the hill, this chalet awaits you. We didn't have much time to stay up there and have a drink because my friend had to go to the airport to return home to Madrid.
I spent the end of the afternoon at the Lët'z go local market where Luxembourg designers, creators and producers were presenting their services and goods.
I ended the day by having a glass of wine with F to conclude this busy but memorable weekend.
