Saturday’s Austrian Dinner Club at Art Bistro Agora was really a belated birthday treat for myself - I had celebrated ‘my special day’ on Thursday. The drinks on the day itself at the same venue had been absolutely lovely with many dear friends stopping by my new venue. I enjoyed catching up, sipping sparkling wine and nibbling on chips.
On Saturday it was time for something more substantial and as I told some friends, in Austria we eat Goulash year round, hot or cold out. Goulash with dumplings to me is always a special treat even though considered quite ‘common’ food back home, to me it’s a real birthday meal. To the guests it was also a treat and both the vegetarian potato version and the beef version were much appreciated.
I had been undecided about starters and when my physics teacher from looong ago with whom I have recently reconnected asked via Facebook about it I told him so.
