Henssler at Home
I really appreciate a great sushi delivery service. And unfortunately, to be honest, this one is not the one for me yet because we had to get the box ourselves. That’s because they’re located in the south and our home is not in their delivery area. Of course, takeaway is also a good option, since I actually prefer eating casually at home, watching my current favorite series and not having to look like I was ready for the red carpet (oh, the drama!), but this means I’m still searching for the sushi delivery service of my dreams.
By now, we’ve tried a lot but usually end up picking up our food ourselves because our favorite restaurants either have no delivery service (Sushi Lô) or it’s just way too expensive (Raw like Sushi) and in the end cheaper to just drive there and get it. Sounds pretty pragmatic but that’s us – living the casual way. ;)
Last year, we tried one of Steffen Henssler’s restaurants here in Hamburg – the sushi restaurant “Ono” (which actually needs a review up here, guess next time I’ll have to take a few pictures!). The second one is “Henssler & Henssler” and nearby the new delivery service “restaurant” (it’s not an actual restaurant, just a reception and the kitchen). I actually wanted to get my food driven up here to my door, but unfortunately they don’t serve all of Hamburg yet. Normally, we wouldn’t drive so far to get our sushi, but I was way too curious, so we made an exception. You can actually pre-order your food for takeaway on their website, but that didn’t work – so we made a call (and had to wait quite a bit – actually, the service is good but veeeery slow, so don’t try to hurry!) and ordered by phone. And this is what we got…
If you’re a sushi lover like me, you’d better not skip a visit to the → east Hamburg for some uber-yummy sushi.
A few weeks ago I was invited to a “Sushi Tasting” and believe me: this was one of the most delicious evenings ever!
I really enjoy sushi and already visited a bunch of restaurants, from cheap to expensive, here in Hamburg, in my hometown, all over Germany and even in Brazil (by the way: that’s where I grew to love it!). One day I’ll probably transform into a tiny little nigiri and eat myself. ;) Fact is: wherever I go, I like to try sushi when I’m hungry.
That’s why the Sushi Tasting was extremely interesting for me and, of course, my expectations were high, as I knew that this was going to be a great experience. The east is well-known for its gastronomy and a place to be in Hamburg. The restaurant offers not only sushi, but to be honest: after this great menu, I don’t even want to eat something else there. ;) But I’ll definitely give it a try (there are some nice dishes on their menu)!
When you enter the hotel, it’s more like entering a stylish restaurant, with a big lobby, Yakshi’s Bar and two lounges. It’s a pleasure to walk in, walk along the bar (or even stay for a little cocktail – I can highly recommend the non-alcoholic “Green Manga”!) and go downstairs to take your seat in the restaurant. The location is extremely beautiful, based on an old iron foundry, the façade of which was maintained and which gives it a very special touch, cozy and still luxurious. It reminds me of a wine cellar, which is a perfect association, as their wine card includes a wide selection of wines and champagne. This evening, I stuck to one of their east exclusives, which was the perfect choice for my sushi.
…mit meiner Bestellung bei → Ayurstar. Vor Kurzem wurde mir angeboten, den Shop zu testen – zwar gibt es dort auch Kosmetik, aber ich dachte mir: warum nicht eher – passend zum Wetter – auf Entspannung setzen? Mit Tee, einem interessanten Snack, duftenden Seifen und natürlich auch ein bisschen Pflege. :)
