Eating out Exotic foods in a home from home
Rumbling tummies during lectures is nobody’s idea of fun. Words go in one ear and out the other as the brain screams one simple message: “Feed me!”. Never fear. In Aachen, help is at hand.
When low blood-sugar levels drive students out of the lecture halls they can quickly find a whole range of snacks, salads and hot dishes in the university refectories, bistros and cafeterias.
Just a short distance down Pontstrasse is everything a student could wish for: fast food, good prices and even table soccer and pool in a living-room-style setting. A home from home. Somewhere like that, essays pretty much write themselves. And, as we know, work is an altogether more relaxing affair in a decent atmosphere.
Cut to a different scene: a first date in the new city. Big excitement. But, oh no – the fridge is empty! Got to think of something quick – after all, home-delivered pizza isn’t the stuff many romantic dreams are made of. Luckily, though, Aachen’s full of choice whether it be sausage and chips with curry sauce from an award-winning chef, tapas and cocktails beneath a romantic painted ceiling or Vietnamese specialities in a truly exotic setting. Aachen has food for every mood. European cuisine, seafood, Oriental, Slavic or North African – just the job even when Mum and Dad spring a surprise visit, let alone a first date!
Eat, drink and be merry. Each district in Aachen has its own highlights, and there are people partying in Aachen all the time, whether organised publicly or privately. On an artificial beach or over the roofs of the city. In huge discos, clubs and lounges. International, creative and full of variety – a fitting description for Aacheners, their foods and their party life.
