Rhian19's Qype profile
Heiligengeistfeld, 20359 Hamburg
This is fun! Great atmosphere to watch the football in, even if you do have to pay silly money for beer and 50 cents to use a toilet that doesn't have a proper sink. Controversial vuvuzela ban as well from what I've heard. Nice big screen though, so you can see your face in biggg. Happy slapping not encouraged.
Vereinsstraße 47a, 20357 Hamburg
This is a lovely little wine shop that I fear won't get a lot of passing trade. I think there was another wine shop here before which might have closed down for these exact reasons. The man who runs it (Andino perhaps?) is absolutely lovely, one of the friendliest people I have ever met, and will give you an honest recommendation, a good deal and probably a half hour conversation :)
The shop itself is very quaint/cute for want of better adjectives - you go down a few stairs through a low doorway and the interior is small but cosy, and, whilst styled old, impeccably tidy and well-ordered.
I hope everyone goes here and gives Andino the custom he deserves.
Grindelallee 144, 20146 Hamburg
This shop is exactly the breath of fresh air Grindelhof needs with a record-breaking 4 below-average supermarkets within about a 7 minute walk of each other. Might be a bit pricier for fruit and veg here than it is at Netto, for example, but sometimes I think eating that plastic fruit and veg that you play with when you're playing shop as a kid would be tastier than the stuff Netto sells. And less likely to make you ill. The staff in here are a joy, SO friendly and very helpful at answering questions like "Wie heißt "parsley" auf Deutsch?" (replace parsley with any other word as applicable). Everything here is top-notch AND inside they have wines and a deli counter with everything a food snob could ever want. Go here :)

The only thing that gets me through a lecture, on the rare occasion that I even attend, is the thought of crossing the street afterwards to Olives and stuffing my face with a gourmet baguette. Reasonable for what they are and the ingredients are fresh and taste amazing. Always go for the specials - they know what they're doing :)
Schanzenstraße 111, 20357 Hamburg
I can't believe I've never reviewed this place!
Falafelstern has, hands down, the best falafel in Hamburg and I KNOW I've said it before but hey, it's a rolling contest and I'm leaving Hamburg in 2 weeks so it's pretty safe to say, at this point, Falafelstern is living up to its name.
Authentic falafel which they actually make in front of you (try to look at the falafel mix and not the deep fat fryer they throw it into) - and every permutation of falafel you could imagine - in bread, with schafskäse, with this, with that, in a box, on a box, behind a box - ok the last few are made up but it was a long list. I haven't been in a while which is a sad fact but if you want a €3 authentic falafel that will fill you up for days then you should come here please. That's an order.
Yum yum yum falafel....
And they have a really cute raised seating area, so you could happily sit in here and munch away - doesn't feel at all like a kebab house. Falafel joints clearly attract classier customers :)
Grindelallee 83, 20146 Hamburg
This shop is absolutely awesome! It's like something out of a film! The guys who run it are almost so friendly that you'd have to go there to believe it. I felt like I'd stepped onto the set of Harry Potter - clambering over piles of books, pushing past ladders, sliding past shelves...it's like a treasure trove. It's like Aladdin's Cave but for a film buff!
And THEN you've got the stuff they have in there - you could spend years in there, you really could. Posters, black and white film stills, books relating to all aspects of films, authentic film postcards, VIDEOS (as in VHS - who knew they even still existed??!) AND it's all sooo cheap - you can pick up some supercool "look-at-my-bedroom-wall-I'm-really-alternative" postcards for 50 cents a pop.
Or, if you're like me and not cool at all, you can pick up a still from André for 50 cents.
You HAVE to go here.
Stadthausbrücke 1, 20355 Hamburg
I have mixed opinions on this place, and 4 stars is probably a bit generous but hey, I'm a generous girl.
The German food here really is excellent - you wouldn't expect it but it IS and there's no escaping it. I've been a couple of times and everything I've had has been great.
On the other hand, the service leaves an awful lot to be desired. In a big group here you can expect especially begrudging, slow and inaccurate service, which is a shame.
My other complaint would be that it's a bit on the pricey side. So make sure you're not paying :)
Jungfernstieg, 20354 Hamburg
Always long queues here which is a bit of a pain but the frozen yoghurt with raspberries in is worth waiting a year for.
Well, maybe not a year. But it's really nice.
Am Brunnenhof 2-4, 22767 Hamburg
The Moscow Mule has to be tasted to be believed. How can they make a drink that cold? The ice here seems to be colder than all other ice ever. And that copper cup is literally a joy. I would like one. And a personal butler to make me moscow mules ALL DAY EVERY DAY.
Don't try the Espresso Margarita though, that's weird. Just get a Moscow Mule and smoke inside JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN and you'll have a whale of a time.
Bei der Schilleroper 1-3, Neuer Pferdemarkt / Ecke Stresemannstraße, 22767 Hamburg
AWESOME pizza, one of the best I've ever had in fact. Made fresh while you wait as well. Only annoying thing is that every time I've been there they've run out of SOMETHING, and 2 out of those three times that thing was dough. Which is obviously an issue, where pizza is concerned. And last time they also had no beer which is obviously more than a minor problem.
Best pizza in Hamburg, if they happen to have the equipment to create it.
