Tuesday was largely more of the same and I was more than happy with that. Walking, food, drink, walking food, drink.
Oh yes and the beautiful buildings and the sea, the Black Sea which I had seen as a child on a 1970s Bulgarian beach.
Our first destination was Odesa’s famous Privoz Market, a riot of colour, sound and smell.
And at last, finally, the Black Sea.
We found the City Food Market by accident and I’m very glad we did as the pop-up bar was serving beer by a small local brewery called Odd Brew.
We asked for one each…and then another, the beer was magnificent, easily the best beer I’ve drunk all Ukraine.
We also ate, I had a plate of meat, it was excellent. The City Food Market could have been hideous but it was quite the opposite and comes highly recommended.
I had marked Friends and Beer as a place to check out and it was well worth the effort to find.
We sat at the bar and chatted to a friendly drunk youth, the bar was cozy, had football on the box and a huge selection of board games. Oh, and the beer was pretty damn good.
I like the place so much I bought the t-shirt.
