Slovakia - Bratislava

Bryndzove halusky:
The first impression I had was.... what the hell is this?!
Disgusting, I'm really not going to eat this!
But still I agreed for myself to look for traditional recipes and I have not regretted it!

It consists of potato pasta with liquid feta-cheese and bacon cubes.
I can't compare the potato pasta with anything in my experience.
The structure is very soft and the taste is quite neutral.
This dish mainly has his benefits from the slightly sour, liquid feta and the saltiness of the bacon cubes.
I definitely recommend this for lunch. It is not very filling, but enough to get through the afternoon.

Price of dish: 6.20 EUR

What the name actually says, Pork Dumpling Sauerkraut.
It's kind of strange that everywhere I go, I eat dumplings?
Is this very common in other countries, or is this just a coincidence?
Well, to get back to business...

To be honest, I'm not much of a fan of this dish.
It was tasty, that's for sure, but I wouldn't order it a second time.
But without talking very negatively about Slovak cuisine, I was very charmed by the combination.

The sauerkraut itself tasted very sour and salty. In combination with the bread (dumpling), which was quite airy and neutral in taste, this was a perfect combination to eat together.
The pork, on the other hand, was a little tough, but together with the home-brewed Kláštorný Pivovar this wasn't as bad as it looks like.

The name of the restaurant is Flag Ship.
This restaurant is located in the center of Bratislava.
In this restaurant they're not only serve food, but also brew their own beer.
Thanks to the locals I got to taste this delicious home-brewed beer!

In total I paid 15.50 EUR.

Wine bar Winenot!?:
Did you know that while I'm writing this text, I'm enjoying this typical Slovak wine white a lovely plate of cheese & meat? This wine bar is located on the square of the Old Town Hall.
After a simple walk with my laptop and sober thoughts I came across this bar by chance.
I found out that Slovakia is not only made up of beer, sauerkraut and pork, but that it is also rich in its tasteful wines.
It is not wrong at all to only taste the French, German, Chilean and South African wines, but try the Slovak wines, you will be surprised!
