What I ate in LUXEMBOURG – A Food Journal

Luxembourg Gastronomy, I wish I had more time to dive into it. This was another country that I need to re-visit with a more serious focus on their cuisine. I only had a couple of days out in Luxembourg City because I had to play catch up with a bit of writing. Everything worked out though, and what I ate was pretty great.

Greetings from Luxembourg!

From lunching at one of the city’s highly rated restaurants, to eating a huge plate of Spaghetti Bolognese at my hotel. My short list of “What I ate in Luxembourg – A Food Journal”.

Lunching in Luxembourg

Prior to my eight weeks in Europe excursion, I researched restaurants in Luxembourg for a nice lunch on my first day there. My specifications were an upscale restaurant, serving traditional food, and good regional wine.  I decided Café Restaurant Um Dierfgen was the place for me, and it did not disappoint.

Kniddelen mat Speck was on my list of dishes to try while in Luxembourg, and I found it at Um Dierfgen. I loved the little flour dumplings served with cream and parsley. I had the option to have it with bacon, and of course I chose that option. It was accompanied with a side of fresh bread, and my delicious meal was the perfect “Welcome to Luxembourg” lunch.

If I am anything, I am choosy on my Riesling. I have tried excellent ones, and others that do not hit my palate right. I have found that German Rieslings from the Mosel Valley, are quite perfect in my book. With that in mind, I was excited to try one of Germany’s neighboring country’s Rieslings. I was very impressed with Luxembourg’s Riesling, as it was similar to Germany’s. Just saying, if someone gifts me with a bottle of Luxembourg Riesling, I will be your friend for a lifetime.

Ohhh Oberweis!

I am very glad that I came across Oberweis in Luxembourg. This boulangerie is also a patisserie and restaurant. It sounds perfect, does it not? I decided on a couple of savory items; a toastie topped with prawn, pate, egg, and vegetables. Also a delicious flaky roll filled with a generous serving of pate. It was a nice treat to eat while I was typing a way in my hotel room.

A Couple of Tasty Things

I am a definite pastry-type lady. Pastries are another food that I have to stop, sniff the doorway, and do a bit of window licking. I was fortunate enough to have Fischer bakery next door to my hotel, which also came in handy on that writing day.

A heavenly cinnamon roll with pistachios, and a luscious sweet tartlet.

So Much Spaghetti Bolognese

My hotel in Luxembourg was above an Italian restaurant. Can you guess what was for dinner? I cannot complain though, as my gigantic Spaghetti Bolognese was great comfort food on my work day. It was very similar to what I used to make for family dinners now and then.

Another great thing was that I also given a free welcome cocktail, and a bowl of bar nuts. It was a decent deal.
