Spargel Season- Berlin

desylicious | May 26, 2008 12:26 PM

I'm almost sick of eating white asparagus in its many forms, but I'm willing to chow down a few more times before I can't even look at it any more, and then pine away for it until next year. I am willing to eat it in many forms, but I love the simple combo of asparagus, potatoes, hollandaise and ham.

In a previous thread I wrote that at Oderquelle...The hollandaise for the spargel is decent too, way better than the broken, heavily alcoholic crap I got at Borchardt recently, but not nearly as perfect as E.T.A. Hoffman's fluffy, buttery dreamy orgasm on a plate. For one last go at spargel season I would definitely hit that again (with the best schwarzwalder shinken and truffled boiled ham).

The spargelcreme soup at E.T.A Hoffman was also great, as was the whole meal, actually, and wonder why I haven't eaten there before.

Anybody else have suggestions before the close of the season?
