Cafe Galao or: My first dinner outside in 2013!

Hi guys! I’ve spent my first evening sitting outside in 2013 – in March! And I have chosen just the perfect spot for it: One of the tables in front of the bar “Galao”, close to the Marienplatz.

The Galao is a lovely little pub which organises cultural events quiet frequently. Yesterday, the Singer-Songwriter Synje Norland was present, supported by a wonderful cello player. I fell in love with their music! Beautiful, relaxing tunes, strong voice, awesome artists. Everybody who has no plans for tonight: They will participate at the “Silent Friday” in the “Kulturwerk”!! Worth going!!

My friend Katja and I arrived around 18:30 – which we thought is early – and had to face the fact that the pub was already full inside. But as it was a very warm day in Stuttgart yesterday, it was still very mild in the evening. And as the Galao has set up some tables outside, next to the windows, we decided to have our first dinner in fresh air in 2013. And believe me, it was not that cold! OK, around 8 pm we asked for some blankets, which we got straight away. And like this we stood our ground until 10 pm, when the concert was finished.

We were both very hungry and thus eager to see what Galao has to offer. The selection is actually not too big, but everything sounded very nice and we both went for “Thali”, which consists of different curries and comes with chapati bread and basmati rice. Very yummy! I’ll definitely have that again the next time!

The Galao is really a special place, not mainstream, nice people and an interesting cultural programme. Maybe I’ve found a new favourite location in  Stuttgart… 🙂
