Fangfrisch – Bringing back the shrimp cocktail

Fangfrisch - Bringing back the shrimp cocktailFangfrisch is a nice restaurant in Lubeck that serves some really great dishes. We got to visit this cozy place and had a really nice lunch. From the outside, it doesn’t look as great as it is. The sheepskin on the seats is a great detail that we both liked a lot. Read all about our experience of visiting this great place in Lubeck.

Fangfrisch – Shrimp cocktail and homemade lemonade

During our last day in Lubeck, we had lunch at this lovely place. I started with the homemade lemonade and a shrimp cocktail. Boy, was it long time since I had a shrimp cocktail to eat. I would say that during the 80s and at the beginning of the 90s everyone was serving that as a starter. Sure, they all tasted different but at the same time, it was “same same”. A shrimp cocktail is a shrimp cocktail – or at least that’s what I thought.

I believe that my sister was pretty late with changing her appetizer – she was always serving a shrimp cocktail in a glass as a starter. So, when I saw that Fangfrisch was serving the Shrimp cocktail, I just needed to try their version of it. And it was really good. Loved that they served it in a glass jar! If there is something we could have changed – it would have been the waiting time for the food. We were heading to the Festival in Travemunde and we waited a long time before we got our food.

Cauliflower on toast

Mini ordered the
and he was happy with his choice. I went for a roasted cauliflower sandwich with avocado and a spicy curry cream. I could have eaten that sandwich for days in a row! Oh, how much I liked it. And the best part is that I was inspired to make such a sandwich at home too.

A tip is to fry cauliflower with some chili. Fry it in a mix of butter and olive oil. I sometimes add some chili flakes and cayenne pepper. But we had never had cauliflower on a piece of bread and since then, we have had that several times. And another tip is to add garlic – oh how great cauliflower fried in garlic is! Both Mini and I were really happy with this place and we recommend it to everyone that’s visiting Lubeck. We also recommend you to order the sandwich with cauliflower.
