Pg. 108: Cologne Food Pr0n


Sometimes the joy of not being able to read the menu means you end up with a pleasant surprise. Here, well-spiced pork strips, red peppers, zucchini, and gorgeous mushrooms surround white rice. I ate all the veggies first.



  • Weather: Pouring when I woke up. Hot, steamy and sunny about an hour later.
  • Mileage: I’m still walking.
  • Food: Today so far: iced soya mocha (yah!), brie and bread. Later: Whatever I come across that looks good.
  • Discovery: There is a Cologne meal called “Heaven on earth.” I must find this thing. And eat it.
  • Media: Story, Robert McKee.
  • Worst Thing: I am in the city of beer (Kolsh specifically) and have not been able to have a single one. FOUR more days of antibiotics! Jeez…
  • Best Thing: Walking the city in the sunshine, not a care in the world. Well, lots of cares, truly, but pretending for half an hour that I don’t have a single one.
  • Word of the Day: Halver Hahn. Translates to “half a chicken,” or actually, “half a cock.” It is, however, not chicken at all, but a bread and cheese plate. The Kavier isn’t really caviar either. It’s blood sausage.



Hm. I did say ‘no more ice cream’, didn’t I? But it was so hot, and it looked so pretty and I really, really wanted it.



Instead of more food porn, I give you porn food. Vibrators shaped like veggies from the Erotik Shoppe around the corner from the apartment. That’s what I get for asking for raw vegetables in Cologne, I suppose.

  1. I always eat my veggies first, having second thoughts now

  2. @Dean: Haha! That’ll teach you! Ice cream first. Always!

  3. The things people will do for veggies… Although given your *cough* dry spell, I’m sure that shop was fun. 😉

    And who cares how much ice cream you have. You’re on vacation…it’s allowed as much as you want. That’s a rule. Somewhere, I’m sure. Or at least it’s my rule!
