I am really picky when it comes to food. I don’t like capsicums, I don’t like tomatoes (raw, cooked ones are totally fine), I don’t like olives and I could go on and on with that list. But I am getting more and more “adventurous” when it comes to food. Ever since I started travelling I decided I should try new stuff. Stuff which is famous for that region or just stuff that everyone else seems to love.
And for people like me, who are adventurous when it comes to food, there’s this great Pizza place in Hamburg, called Mehl. (Yes, that just means flour in German.) Obviously, you can just try pre-made Pizzas, where you know what you are getting, but you can also just be surprised by the chefs of the day. So what you basically do is fill out a form, saying what you like, what you dislike and what you are allergic to. And you chose the dough. Then you give your Pizza a really cool name, draw a cute picture for the chef and hand this form in.
And honestly, whatever the chef is making out of the information given to him, it’s always delicious! I think I’ve been there four times and I was never disappointed. As if he could guess what I feel like eating that day.

So yeah. That’s basically what Mehl is about. And on top of that they have delicious special cocktails.
The inside is also really cool, wooden tables, great art work and a long bar full of beautifully looking bottles of liquor.
The prizes are a bit higher for anyone who is used to Hamburg-prizes (a pizza is 15 Euro) but for a nice dinner with the family it’s perfect!
Make sure to make a reservation. It’s not as busy during the week but if you’re unlucky, you might have to wait a bit. So be a bit Germanly efficient and make a reservation beforehand 🙂
It’s a bit hard to find for those who don’t know their way around Hamburg because it’s located inside the car park of the Thalia Theater in Altona, but if you put it in your GPS system, you should be just fine!
