Mihaela and I set out for downtown Trier for day two of our annual “birthday week” yesterday. Having plopped down in nearly every eatery in Germany’s oldest city these last 7 years, finding a new hidden gem was our mission on a perfect summer’s day. Relegated to the side alleys of the pedestrian zone, choosing from off the beaten path seemed logical. So confronted with the typical schnitzel garden, or a classy looking Italian cafe/restaurant, we gave Deutsche cuisine “the boot” on this cheery day.
In news from Malta, the Tourism Authority there has begun clamping down on the number of illegal restaurants. Already this year the authorities have made 613 inspections, compared with 608 made in all of 2013. Establishments without proper licensing and in breach of other regulations are being forced to either close or remedy their situation.
To start with, I’ll admit my own inefficiency in not having reviews Olivenbaum before. The Greek restaurant is, after all, right next door nearly. Making amends today, I hope your next trip to Trier, Germany puts you in the mood for Mediterranean.
