[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Wenigstens scheint die Sonne, es ist warm draußen, ich hab‘ einen Balkon (den ich jetzt doch nicht verbessern kann, weil @obi_baumarkt_ meine Bestellung storniert hat und ich jetzt nur Erde und ne kleine Schaufel bekomme, haha! Bin euch aber nicht böse, kann’s ja irgendwie verstehen - bin nicht die Einzige, die den Plan hatte...), höre den ganzen Tag Musik (draußen für mehr Konzentration beim Lesen gerne mit Kopfhörern, zum Beispiel den praktischen In-Ears von @sudio und ganz viel @listentolambert), ich kann in bequemer Kleidung rumgammeln (der Hoodie war eine limitierte Geschichte von @jessybarden zur wunderbaren Serie „The End of the f***ing World“ auf @netflixde und er könnte grad nicht passender sein!) und allgemein könnte so eine Quarantäne ja wirklich schlimmer sein. Ätzend ist es trotzdem, vor allem so allein. Aber ich hab‘ Spucki. ♥️

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Monday Mood - when your favorite bar provides you with an Argyle Punch premix for the quarantine. ♥️ Ich hab‘ jetzt schon so viele Memes gesehen, dass es nach dem ganzen Mist zwei Gruppen geben wird: perfekte Köche oder Alkoholiker. Ersteres ist definitiv die bessere Idee, auch wenn mein Pulli meine Gedanken zu all dem am besten ausdrückt. „Social Distancing“ oder wie ich es lieber nenne „zusammen allein“ erfordert für uns alle spezielle Maßnahmen, um mit der Einsamkeit (oder auch Zweisamkeit, die einem sicher auch ganz schön auf den Sack gehen kann!) klarzukommen. Der ein oder andere Drink schadet da nicht, aber ich möchte euch gerne nochmal dran erinnern, Alkohol bitte in Maßen zu konsumieren, denn Alkohol ist keine Lösung (sondern ein Destillat, höhö!), auch bei Corona nicht. Und bei Einsamkeit erst recht nicht. Gönnt euch vielleicht mal ein Gläschen beim FaceTimen mit Freunden oder halt, weil dann wieder Samstag ist und ihr im Normalfall ausgegangen und euch einen Cocktail genehmigt hättet, aber übertreibt bitte nicht. Habt euch lieb und #stayathome 😘

• Rio de Janeiro | Dinner at the FASANO al mare | FASANO Ipanema •

I can’t even say how much I enjoyed going out for dinner in Rio. :) Those two luxurious dinners we had (find my post about our dinner at the “Mee” → here), were definitely two highlights of our vacation. Not just because it’s luxury, the food was simply delicious! And this is coming from someone who’s normally not very interested in Italian food (gosh, many people will think I’m crazy, right?). I don’t really care about pizza and pasta, but this time I wanted to give it a try, especially because the FASANO is known for its great food, including sea food. But if there’s something that I’m even less interested in, then it’s sea food (well, except for oysters, haha!) and cooked fish (but please give me anything raw – one day I’ll become a sushi myself!). So I chose a few classics from the Italian cuisine and I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, this was one of the best dinners I ever had and I can definitely recommend booking a table and enjoying dinner at the “FASANO al mare” – maybe even the same dishes I had. ;)

So, I made a reservation for our table the same afternoon, it was pretty spontaneous and luckily no problem – when we arrived, the restaurant was almost empty but got pretty packed during our dinner. Still, it didn’t feel that loaded since we got a nice big table for us and it somehow felt private, even though we were definitely not alone. Reserving a table, I’d say, is still a must to make sure to get one. :)

The waiters were extremely courteous and quick, we never had to wait long between our meals and the service was great – also when it was time to choose, when we requested some help with what’s recommendable. At some times, I kind of felt that the waiters were a little too professional, I was missing a bit of a smile, but that’s actually nothing to complain about. At least, one of them was pretty funny and had some stories to share about the food.

About the food: the burrata was the best thing I’ve ever had in my entire life. It was creamy and incredibly delicious, especially in combination with the tomato cream – I actually have no idea what it really was, but it was sweet, a bit like tomato jam. I wish the FASANO team would have answered my mail asking for some more information about the food I had, but I guess that’s the point where I have to criticize the service – not answering mails is definitely a lack of courtesy and respect towards the guests, even though everyone was very kind and courteous on location and on the phone.

I also had the freshly home-made tortelli and they were great. Fresh pasta is always a good choice and they definitely did a good job with it. The filling was delicious, the sauce intensively cheesy, so if you love cheese, you should go for it!

Of course, my favorite right after the burrata was the dessert. We had the tiramisu, which actually has a story behind it – the waiter told us that it’s made using a recipe of the grandmother of the actual first chef of the FASANO in Rio, who’s now in São Paulo, which is a bit different and is where its look comes from. It’s crunchier and made with Marsala and oh-so-tasty! It’s no wonder that this tiramisu is considered the best in Brazil – so you better not miss it! I wish we hadn’t shared this little piece of deliciousness, but I was actually pretty full after our dinner! ;)

So all in all, this was amazing. We had a great, elegant and luxurious dinner, with extremely delicious food and a service that was absolutely flawless. Guess we’ll come back whenever we’re in Brazil again!
