    Ok.ok. But Salat first, Strudel second.
    Styrian Salat-Dressing:
    1 coffee cup of pumpkin-seed oil,
    a half tea spoon of spicy mustard
    a half spoon of salt
    a touch of garlic
    one up to three spoons of cider vinegar (depends on personal taste)

    .. mix it .. and you get

    .. best styrian dressing for green salad (iceberg salad for example)
    .. add some potato pieces to the salad to get more substance if you like.
    :)

    Thanks @oldbert! Such a salad is also great food for the current weather conditions. I thing this salad including tepid potato cubes will also make the perfect companion for the original Wiener Schnitzel (made of veal, not pork of course).

    As the holiday season comes to an end for some of us (Dude-wise), it’s time to post some culinary impressions from a nice, quiet place on this planet some of us hold dear (also dude-wise).


    For starters, I like to begin with the all-time classics of that region (this time, tourist-wise, the locals will disagree on some of this most likely).

    As there is, a light not to strong flavored local draught (this might even be OK for those Miller drinkers). But I enjoy it nonetheless when it’s combined with a salty breeze from the ocean and a nice sunset.
    01_Tuborg.jpg


    Second, the Risted Hot Dog that can be found at every corner, with both fresh and fried onions and three types of sauce on it. This fellow looked already a bit wrinkled as the local Vietnamese chip shop owner put this on the grill way ahead of my arrival (look how the plate match her nationality).
    02_hotDog.jpg


    To round up a meal when on the road, try a local Soft ice (if you dare). They come with all kinds of toppings, from chocolate sauce or crumbles, nut or what you have. I took cocoa this time.
    03_SoftIs.jpg

    Last but not least, Danish pastry is a class of its own when it comes to bakery. Especially puff pastry in combination with butter, BROWN SUGAR and cinnamon. I guess @GingerByte and @DarthSnow would agree on this. Heaven!

    Bon Appétit! I still got those Vietnamese shrimp/salt/chili powder in the cabinet for dipping those fruits you got there...


    OK guys, ready for the second round of the Dude’s Holiday food adventure?

    So when talking about what you can grab for lunch at a road side diner, I’ve to single out one location I like to visit at least once a year.

    For the very very unlikely case, you find yourself close to the cozy town of Løgstør (Denmark, Europe that is - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Løgstør), I recommend to make a stopover at Hos Tetzlaff, homemade food with some really great burger on the menu. (@Luke's beard , any chance for you to be found in northern Jutland?)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Løgstør

    http://www.hos-tetzlaff.com/

    https://www.tripadvisor.dk/Restaura...rland_Municipality_North_Jutland_Jutland.html


    This year I had the pleasure of being served by the grand dame of the establishment, Birgitte Tetzlaff, herself – on her birthday.

    For the Burger, first choose your kind of bun made by the bakery next door:
    01_tetz.jpg

    Then be ready for some meaty delight. Burger patty, bacon, pulled pork and chicken, two kind of cheese, homemade sauce and no veggies!
    02_tetz.jpg 03_tetz.jpg



    Also fine to eat I found the pulled pork, resting on a bed of french fries/chips that were herb flavored which do go well with the BBQ sauce.
    04_tetz.jpg


    For those more into healthy seafood, I recommend the fish platter with smoked salmon, fried plaice, shrimps and mussels as per season.
    05_tetz.jpg


    Some of the eatables you can inspect upfront at the counter.

    07_tetz.jpg

    06_tetz.jpg

    All in all, a fine place to enjoy some really good food!

    What about a fine Indian Pale Ale @GreyLo? Does everything have to be dark?

    I have a very personal very strong completely subjective and non race based bias against indian things (its a chick thing). But thats not the reason i dont like fine Indian Pale Ale. The reason i dont like it is....I havent tried it :p not many Indians in Croatia...

    (And just for clarification by Indian you mean Hindu or Native American? We Croats use same name for both...i think :p)

    The ‘india’ (sorry, not ‘indian’! My typo…) of this Ale does not refer to any cultural group, but more to the used hop and the kind of brewing. And yes, it was exported mostly to India back in the days, but got a revival with the coming of the craft beer movement.

    Well, I don’t have personal experience with those but at least these brews are really high ranked fort here taste and quality.

    I’m sure you can dig up some at your place! IPA from Croatia:


    Nova Runda C4
    (from Zagreb): Orange, cloudy beer. Sweet, malty, caramel, some roasted malts. Aroma is of exotic fruits, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, grapefruit, orange, pine., hoppy bitterness (especially in the finish). Full bodied, well balanced.

    Vunetovo Aljaški Mrgud (Black IPA from Hvar): Black in color with beige head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, coffee, citrus taste. A bit earthy and woody. Maltiness in aftertaste with bitter hops present.

    Zmajska Pivovara Pozoj (from Zagreb): Pours a clear golden yellow with a fading off white bubbly head. Aroma is of citrus, melon, kiwi, pear, grassy. Taste is of citrus, peace, green apple, melon, kiwi, white grapes, elderflower. Light oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Sweet with a thick citrusy character. Lots of grapefruit and a nice bitter finish.

    Actually, they sound so good I should investigate myself! Maybe I’ve to drop by at some time ;)

    Here you can find lots more and also hints were to buy: http://www.frankaboutcroatia.com/craft-beer-in-croatia/
