Saw Anselm post about Hackepeter so a good excuse to add it to the wiki.


Mett, also known as Hackepeter (Northern Germany, Eastern Germany, Bavaria and Berlin) is a preparation of minced raw pork seasoned with salt and black pepper that is popular in Germany and Poland. It is frequently spread on halves of a bread roll, with raw onion optionally on top.

Went for a coffee meeting at Revolver and introduced another person to ordering a duet:

Revolver Duet

Ordering a duet at Revolver gets you a macchiato with the half shot of espresso that’s left over in a separate glass, plus a side of water.

This lets you taste the flavour of the beans as a straight espresso shot, as well as having it with milk in the macchiato.

Quick lunch at Di Beppe Cafe. Margheritta pizza with fior Di latte, and an order of Cacio e pepe.

Doing some research, that’s one of the 4 Roman pastas:

Gricia, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe, and Amatriciana are all simple pastas that share the same big flavors of Pecorino-Romano, black pepper, and—in three of the dishes—cured pork.
