The evening started well, sipping beer in the old town square of Leipzig and watching a recording of one ofÂ Jean-Michel Jarre’s concerts in China. After a stroll around the sights I came across a restaurant called “Goldene Kugel”Â on the Richard-Wagner Strasse near the main station. It advertised as-much-as-you-can-eat Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine for a very reasonable 17 Euros. I went in.
It started with a plate of sushi….
then came steamed dumplings with cauliflower and greens, with various dipping sauces….
thenÂ shrimp, chicken, pork and grilled dumplings….
by which time I was full. I washed it all down with a few glasses of dry Riesling, which I find one of the best wines to drink with Asian cuisine. The food was excellent andÂ the service very efficient, so I left aÂ generous tip.Â
