My friend Martina and I (we’ve been friends since we were four years old) always meet up when I’m on a home visit. Our perpetual mission is to hunt down good food in Fürstenfeldbruck, the town where I was born, which is less than three miles from ‘The Village‘. It’s not exactly a challenge 😉
Breakfast at Vierwasser, a very trendy restaurant by the river Amper.
We’ve moved on to a fabulous ice cream place right next door to Vierwasser, called Al Ponte. It’s been there for well over 40 years. When we were kids, once a week, Martina and I used to get a scoop of vanilla ice cream each in a cone on our way from our primary school to the bus stop. Once, a pesky class mate of ours by the name of Manuel Krey, was hassling us. I lost my patience and cracked my precious treat over his head. I’m still pissed off about this today – he so wasn’t worth the monumental sacrifice! Should have kicked him in the nuts instead.
