Tatemono Sushi Bar - Decent Food

I had been wanting to visit Tatemono Sushi Bar and Restaurant for a while. There used to be a Greek restaurant at that spot which I had visited (see review).

And finally I had the chance to visit it for lunch.
The interior is neat with a fusion of western and Asian design. It was crowded.

Spaetzle/Nockerln with Goulash

Spaetzle/Nockerln is one of my favourite dishes. I love it with a good plate of goulash. In Austria it is generally called nockerln though there might a slight difference between the two. 
Over the weekend I had made goulash and today I decided it was time to make spaetzle. I have some experience in Austrian cooking, so the last time I made spaetzle I went from my memory.
This time, however, I decided to check out a recipe but, as usual, I changed it slightly.

2 cups of durum atta flour  
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
¼ cup of water
A pinch of grated nutmeg
One teaspoon of salt

Eggenberg Dunkel Beer -- A Beer to Enjoy

I have always been a fan of the dunkel beer – dark beer, as translated from German. I grew this love during my stay in Vienna, Austria.
Not as dark as a Guinness, its dark reddish-brown fusion had an allure. But more than the colour, it was the taste – with a tinge of sweetness to it.

I had never managed to find its equivalent in Canada. Until recently.

I was poring through the LCBO shelves for something new when my eyes landed on the Eggenberg Doppelbock Dunkel.

I could not remove my eyes from the word ‘Dunkel’. After more than a decade I am seeing it.

Immediately, I grabbed as many bottles as I could.
