Ravenous but stumped for cash? Then “all you can eat” is what you need. At the Ginza Chinese Restaurant, 9.90 euros will go a long way. Visit between 11:30 and 15:00 and eat as much as you like. Or opt for one of the affordable lunch menus, which start at 6.20 euros!
Lunchtime, your stomach is growling. Going to the canteen? Big yawn. Change is needed! Maybe Turkish? At Sedir they serve yummy pasta dishes and other typically Turkish specialities. Large helpings and student-friendly prices.
Also delicious, and affordable: the daily specials at St. Stephanskeller, a magnificent old town cellar restaurant.
Or try Radieschen, which is also centrally located. They primarily offer Turkish dishes as well as pizza and pasta.
Don’t happen to be downtown? Then head over to Defne. For years it has been the epitome of delicious Turkish food at absolutely fair prices on the right side of the Seerhein (Don’t be deterred by the homepage design). All dishes also to go.
See and be seen: thanks to its large arched windows Café Pano on the market square is a wonderful place to do so. The prices are nothing for beginners, but the quality is very high. Hard to believe that Pano is a café chain. Whether it’s an espresso, tea, rhubarb cake, home-made ice cream or sandwiches with delicious spreads, everything here is made with great affection. Unfortunately it is frequently overcrowded due to its central location. In summer you might find a place outside.
Whether it’s Irish ale or twelve-year-old whiskey that you’re into – at the Stable you’re in for an authentic Dublin pub experience. And if you need an excuse for downing all that drink: between tarte flambée and burgers you’ll be sure to find something that requires washing down.
You can really get it if you want it! Soups and salads, that is a great choice if you’re looking for better food options. As quick and fuss-free as fast food, but healthier and involving more greens. Think lots of vitamins, nutrients and fibre. Daily soup specials make for great variety. Insider tip: ask for a “green card” and get your 13th soup for free.
The café-bar F.A.X. in Kreuzlingen is located directly next to the Cult-Lounge, is not open quite that late, but offers an excellent selection of wines and cocktails, which you can enjoy in the modern, but nevertheless cozy atmosphere. Another Brownie point is the newly established free WLAN hotspot. Both smokers and non-smokers are welcome.
The Kulabar is the restaurant above the alternative club ‘Kulturladen’. Bass guitars are jamming in the club below, while you can have a delicious dinner or play darts or pool up here. By the way, the bands performing later in the club downstairs often eat here in the early evening too.
