  • Yong Yong

yong_yongIn Trier, my friend Yong, who designed my website, and his wife, Esther, have recently opened their newly expanded space called Yong Yong. (See their Facebook page for photos.) Over the years, many of you have eaten here with me when it was just a tiny joint.

Along with delicious Indochinese soup, salad, and cake, they now also have design classics (lamps, chairs) and a selection of Mosel wines from Joh. Jos. Prüm, Weiser-Künstler, Hofgut Falkenstein, Willi Schaefer, and Maximin Grünhaus, among others. Full disclosure: I consulted on the wine list.

Their place is in the Neustraße 39–40, near the Trier pedestrian zone, and is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. On weekday evenings, Yong Yong serves homemade tapas and dishes to go along with the various regional wines on offer, both by the glass and bottle. Their wine prices are moderate. For the bottle, they only charge a 6-euro corkage fee on the price you would pay at the estate. ♦
