Before heading to the Art2Cure event (see my previous post here), I had lunch with AN at AKA. We sat by the sushi train and while the food was really good as usual, I found that the selection was lacking variety. But I really don't have any reason to complain because in the end we weren't charged for all the plates we had since AN knows one of the chefs there.
The crispy breaded prawn maki were my favourite.
I wasn't planning on having any alcohol that day but when AN chose to have a glass of Auxerrois after dinner, I joined in. After AKA, we attended the Art2Cure opening where Juliet joined us. We then moved on to Vinissimo in Gasperich.
AN had previously been there and had done a wine tasting with a sommelier. We got there and asked for such a session and it took ages until someone looked after us. No sommelier was available and we were given a wine credit card, which let us get wine samples from the machine below.
One wine sample cost one credit and our card had a total of 23 credits. I tried four different kinds. All were very good, I have to say.
There was some food as well; the cheese was sooo good.
While the welcoming wasn't very impressive, it was nice to hear at the check out that the wine tasting was actually free.
The store doesn't only sell wine, there are tons of Italian delicatessen that you can get there: fresh pasta to take away, dry pasta, cheeses, juices, cakes, and so on and so forth.
