Stacja Pasibus – Wroclaw, Poland

I’m finishing off 2017 and welcoming you to our first post for Poland! I swept in here for a little pre-Christmas break to see what was what and basically eat my way through a few Winterry days. This is when I found Stacja Pasibus and I’m ruddy glad I did. In front of the entrance to one of the Christmas markets, this place was a frookin’ gem to walk into.  I did have a little fear of “WHAT IF THEY HAVE NO SEATS?!” but our accidental timing was fortunate, so we grabbed a table straight away.

Super Duper Burger – Castro District, San Francisco

Super Duper Burger is a ten location burger shoppe spread over San Francisco (6 locations), South Bay  (2 locations) and North Bay (2 locations).  They pride themselves on using ingredients sourced from just miles away from their restaurants to make the ‘perfect burger’ and ensure any product they use is of the highest standard – having travelled across the pond and being a burger fan, this made me curious!

Linked with the above, SDB say that their “slow food values” for fast food make for a higher cost but with a Super Burger (2x 4oz double patties) costing $7.75 I don’t think that’s half bad at all. You can customise your burger with a free selection of salad or bacon/cheese/avocado/egg for a maximum of $1.50 per item and with fries priced at a maximum of $3.25 it’s pretty reasonable.

Schwartz’s Deli – Trocadero, Paris

We were loitering around the Trocadero Gardens having a little look at the Eiffel Tower and watching some skateboarders do their thing and at some point hunger approached us. I had a quick google and Schwartz’s Deli popped up….checked out the website and the menu looked pretty HAWT so knew we had to go.

A lot of restaurants in Paris work in an ‘open for lunch, have a break then open for dinner later on’ kind of way and this one was no exception so we had to wait a dreaded half hour until the place opened at seven.  We’d had a look through the window though and the interior was pretty pleasing – done up in an American New York diner style without being too tacky and over the top.   There were lots of pin up girls on the walls – which I approve of – celebrity mug shots, old magazine covers and some Elvis thrown in. Bingo bango.
