Part II - The Restaurant - Fish Club!

Before I talk about my dinning experience, I would like to declare that I am not a food blogger so I would not able to describe the food as precise as the normal food blogger, my food pictures were not as attractive as the elite food blogger out there.

Ok! let start the food journey. After a 40 minute long walk down the hill, finally we reached this yellow floating boat restaurant.

As you can see from the photo below, this restaurant is exactly a boat park beside a wooden platform that hold them steady from the current of the river, but trust me sometime there was a big container liner pass thru this channel and you can fill the push of the current that move this floating restaurant.

According to Rosmann, this restaurant was once hit by a container liner and cause a big damage, unfortunately the owner was able to claim from the insurance and rebuilt them again.

The yellowish color was the symbol of this unique restaurant and you can locate the restaurant from the far on the top of the hill.

Internal deco is simple but cosy enough to give you a good dinning experience

You see!! this was I mean, the container liner actually shipped thru this channel from Hamburg harbour. That is my Taiwan colleague hand not mind!!!

This is the menu - it was written in both German and English.

This drink is actually a red wine cocktail that contain less alcohol content in the drink, it kinda sweet and still have the good taste of wine.

This bread is make fresh from the oven with some rough texture, it was mix with some dry fruit and grain eat with the soft butter but I like the Italian way of serving the bread with olive oil and vinegar .

The appetiser - some smoke salmon and some fresh bean sprout- nothing to shout about!

Ok! this is the most interesting soup, it was cooked the Chinese way - steam or double boil method and the ingredient is cherry tomato, sweet chili, chicken slice and some unknown spices. It is very sweet and taste fantastic, it was more like a Chinese herbal double boil soup serve hot from the kitchen.
Lobster cream soup...strong lobster taste but can;t find any lobster meat inside the soup, nothing special.

Rosmann main dish - frankly speaking, it is just a simple dish with one big scallop and some small sweet potato cook the Italian way. Sorry forget how it was taste! It was the first item on the menu I shown above. ( Euro = 18.50= Rm85.00)

Ha! this is my main dish. Fish fillet grill to the perfection serve with some sweet potato and sour pickle...unique combination. The fish fillet is very fresh and it was not over cook with balance of spice use in this dish that give the good aroma serve in a hot plate. 8/10 rating from me. The dish name was :Grilled fillet of wolf fish with zucchini, tomato ragout, potato, second last item on the menu. ( Euro 18.50 = RM85.00, expensive or not!!!)

My Taiwan colleagues order another dish which was Poached Fillet of Catfish in mustard sauce and Potato! Can't recalled what was the taste but my colleague think that it is kind of good with a lot 'wok hei" ha! ha! ( Euro 15.80 =RM85.00)
Nobody want to order desert but I am a sweet tooth so I decided to order this wonderful strawberry dessert cook with red wine and sugar. This dessert come with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Taste wise not too sweet and the sour was balance by the sweetness of the sugar!!
Generally, I enjoy the cosy dinning environment of this fish club restaurant, although there don't have any special dishes to shout about but ingredient was fresh and cooking method is simple! Most important the journey to get there is wonderful, frankly speaking I don't mind take another 40 minute walk to visit them again.

My next blog entry, I would want to talk about my company HQ in Hamburg! The working environment is so good that worth to share will all of you, of course I can't review the name of the company but I can show you the building, the cafeteria, the wonderful coffee corner etc.
