What’s that saying? Precision German engineering?
I once saw this video of a German made weapons grade ball bearing and a Chinese one. The German one was about 20x as expensive. “Well that’s stupid” I thought. Until the guy spun them.
The Chinese one spun for like 10 seconds. Pretty impressive.
The German one spun for about a minute.
Affäre is kinda like this story. It’s more expensive than other places. But I kinda get why.
Precision German engineering.
Welcome to Affäre.
Katie planned a whole date night for us since she’s a modern woman that likes to woo me with food. That, and she had a gift card from Open Table that she needed to use. So we decided on Affäre since it’s been on our list so long.
It’s very modern and upscale on the inside but still very comfortable. We had a wide mix of people ranging from extremely well dressed to “I just got back from Walmart” dressed. Katie and I were mid-to-high on our dressiness. I felt that was appropriate for the place.
We were there for drinks and appetizers. I went with a nice German Pilsner.
And Katie went with a flight of wine. Which, FYI, was a super good deal. Usually they give you those short little glasses. But not here. Here you get the big ones.
For food, we went with the Sea and the Pig.
And holy shit were they a lot of food.
If you come here know that one appetizer is probably good for about 3-4 people.
The Sea comes with shrimp tempura, scallops over creamy mashed potatoes and topped with octopus bacon.
The Pig is a medley of sausage. Which, just so happens to be the name of my future prog rock deathcore band.
They came with amazing sauerkraut and these potatoes of the gods called Bratkartoffeln. I loved it. And have absolutely no clue how to pronounce it. Just pretend that you have peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth and try saying random words. They’ll know what you want.
And the bathrooms? Nice. Nothing special.
How would we rate it?
