Long have I admired the beauty and taste of a good pina colada, and through my adventures I have discovered both wonderous, and also disastrous pinas. To help other pinas admirers, I have created this handy blog, giving my very own rating of pina coladas in various locations. The journey begins in Frankfurt...

Eat Drink Man Woman

Eat Drink Man Woman - what an odd name for a place! I had always assumed this place was just a bar, and it is, but it turns out it's also a thai restaurant too! Important note - the menu has a section devoted to coladas! The bar area is very snazzy, and features one of the longest aquariums I've ever seen - very hypnotising too. So, onwards to the review...

Eat Drink Man Woman - 7.50 euros.

Appearance - 4.5/5 - Heart shaped pineapple chunk? A bar of chocolate resting on top?? I felt like I was sampling a pinas that had been plucked from my dreams! It's a refreshing form of presentation though - in the classic glass shape too, and great, after the recent bout of Ikea style glasses I have had to deal with. It took me awhile (due to gawking at the novelty) to realise half the glass was filled with foam...

Taste - 4/5 - I know I complain of pinas that taste too pineappley, but this could have done with more. I found it to be a 'grower'; was unsure at first how I felt on this...and then it blossomed into a beautiful flavour! A friend informed me the rum used was Malibu - well done Malibu, your contribution was much welcomed. There was a caramel taste to it, so nice.

Texture - 3.5/5 - Well, the foam was thick and lovely (reminded me so much of my mum's homemade pina coladas, back when I was 10...) but underneath it, it was very watery. I liked that there were no land mass sized chucks of ice bobbing in it though.

Finish - 4/5 - Lovely, smooth, and with a slight caramel aftertaste. Completely inoffensive. :)

Overall - 4/5 - A strange and unusual pinas from recent reviews, but well worth another visit! (Worth noting, that it took roughly 10-15 minutes for the drink to arrive, AND it arrived after the food had been served - don't you just *hate* that? : | Thankfully, it was worth the wait, so my feelings of rage subsided. :)
