The whole world comes to the new market hall in Ulm

Ulm's city center has a new gastronomic attraction: the "Ulmer Markthalle" opened on Friday. In the former Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah's Witnesses' Religious Community, eleven stands currently offer food daily from nine to nine p.m. under the motto "homemade, sustainable, regional, seasonal". Dzenis Drinjak, a gastronome known in Ulm - for example, an operator of the Sucasa Bar or founder of Damn Burger - is the initiator of the whole thing.

The idea behind it: To open an uncomplicated realization possibility to the fresh ideas of restaurateurs. "We need more trial and error mentality," says Drinjak. If everything is always thought through down to the last detail, creativity falls by the wayside. For this reason, he only enters into lease agreements with the stand operators that can be terminated on a monthly basis. If a concept is not running, then a new one should be tried out. The project is scheduled to run for two and a half to three years: Because it was clear that the building would be demolished in 2021.

More applicants than places

This pop-up approach did not harm the rush in the run-up: there were more applicants than stands. And yet one is empty. He had been deliberately released to ensure constant variety. Producers or restaurateurs can also rent in here on a daily basis. A lot of work is involved in transforming a prayer house into a market hall. From morning to evening, the store manager has been working on the stands and building services over the past few weeks.

Drinjak itself developed a concept for the market which - as a franchise, so to speak - is managed by an acquaintance: The "NY Cab Food Bar" offers a specialty from the cosmopolitan city with a regional touch in the design of the famous New York taxis: Pastrami-sandwiches with meat of Allgäuer outdoor cattle.

The culinary arch, which is stretched in the market hall, reaches almost around the whole world. With a picture of her Peruvian granny (Abuelitas's) in her portrait, Diana Rapp offers Empanadas. The stuffed dumplings are available in two ways: baked as they are preferred in Peru. Or fried the Colombian way. Rapp serves with it, for example, causa, a potato and tuna casserole. Espresso then extracts diagonally opposite its partner in the "Kaffenio" from an original Faema machine, which is considered to be the Rolls-Royce among the strainer carriers. But yesterday's opening day revealed some pitfalls, as could be seen from the heavy screwing of the good old piece.

Not only North and South America are represented culinarily, but also Africa and Asia. Thuy Duong, who also runs the Asia Van restaurant in Ulm's Hoheschulgasse, serves fresh Vietnamese summer rolls. The Vietnamese woman wants to concentrate on street food in the market hall, as is eaten in the home of her family in northern Vietnam.

Offers also from Africa

The offer at "Eri Soul" is particularly unusual. Here the Eritrean-born Harnet Brunner-Tesfazghi wants to introduce the Swabians to East African cuisine. She has already gained gastronomic experience with her partner Teben Eyob at Café Omar in Ulm. And in the preparation of monthly Eritrean buffets. "The cuisine in Eritrea is very spicy," says Brunner-Tesfazghi. The center of the meal is always Injera, a flatbread made of sourdough. "Homemade, of course." You can also try timtimo, a lentil dish with tomatoes, fava beans or cigni, a beef specialty in a spicy sauce.

European cuisine is represented by Italian Mario Brizzo. His specialty: fresh pasta. The wraps at Fresh-Sub, a small chain with branches in Ulm, Stuttgart, and Karlsruhe, are also fresh.

Annabelle Glaser also serves salads and homemade smoothies. Gerhard Illenberger is responsible for cheese at the Markthalle. The Heidenheim-based cheese sommelier also organizes cheese seminars at its parent company Käse & Mohr. In Ulm, the gourmet offers artisan cheese and other selected dairy products.

    • In 1971 I fasted for 90 days and lost 100 pounds … a pound a day … with the IBWH, “I’m broke, and what the hell” diet. The first week was uncomfortable. Not recommended if you are over 40 years old, or are not chubby to start with. I did drink a lot of water.  
    • In real life “Maria” is probably really someone that looks a lot like Danny DiVito with a skin rash.

    • Maria followed me on Twitter one fine day and she was drop-dead gorgeous. No, I did not follow her back for that reason. Trust me on this: drop dead gorgeous women throw themselves at me all the time; it is a great nuisance because all I want to do is think about God. In fact, I didn’t follow her back at all, not even for the reassuring profile photo she displayed, consisting solely of “Jehovah” in gold-embossed letters. However, I did scroll her timeline and found a suitable place to leave a comment. She soon replied that she had just texted me. Sorry, I told her, I don’t do DM. I stay on the public side of Twitter. “Why?” she wanted to know. “Because if I do so I am immersed in dozens of private chats and I can’t keep up,” said I. She responded that, in that case, I could contact her on WhatsApp. I didn’t reply to that one. Next thing you know she has disappeared and all her notifications with her! I searched out her username: “Account suspended for violation of Twitter rules.” Hmm. I searched for the name on Facebook. It links to a certain bit-coin trader, also drop-dead gorgeous. No, Maria, my dear, I have all the bit-coin I need, thank you very much—even though you are drop-dead gorgeous, even though your profile does say ‘Jehovah’ so I know you are one of us, probably belonging to the congregation right next door. I’ve no doubt she has a separate profile that says Jesus, another that says Buddha, Dagon, Moroni, Baal, and a dozen others.  It is called ‘Affinity Fraud,’ winning someone’s confidence through feigned common roots. It factors into the making of E.T—The Sequel, a movie you may not have seen. In the original, cute, adorable, toddler E.T. charms all who are pure enough to let him into their hearts. But in E.T.—the Sequel, he returns as a surly teenager. He curses, spits, brawls, swears, and in the end destroys the earth with his white-hot power beam, starting with Wall Street.  Steven Spielberg, the movie’s creator, had just lost an ever-loving fortune to the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. Both were Jews. Virtually all of Madoff’s victims were Jews. It was affinity fraud. Not that Maria’s scheme is a fraud, necessarily, but her means of contact certainly was. She’s probably not even drop-dead gorgeous. She’s probably an old hen. And even if she is not, so what? Is not Mrs. Harley also drop-dead gorgeous?

      "Let us hold firmly the public declaration of our hope without wavering, for the one who promised is faithful.  And let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works,  not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near."
      Love you, dear ones! 💖🥰

      "Grace" means "undeserved kindness".
      "For we all received from his fullness, even undeserved kindness upon undeserved kindness."
      "Speak to one another with psalms, praises to God, and spiritual songs, singing and accompanying yourselves with music in your hearts to Jehovah,  always giving thanks to our God and Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
      As you reflect on the blessings (superabundant blessings beyond all we could ask or conceive!) made possible by Jesus' precious blood this Memorial, may you continue to rejoice in the undeserved kindnesses of our beautiful Creator and Friend, Jehovah! Praise Jehovah💖☺️
