Yup... he was a Greek tech, who told me that he had to move from Greece to Germany to find a serious job. I don't even have to make this stuff up myself.... people bring it to meToo bad your tech friend hung out with the wrong crowd ... here in the states you can literally enjoy any type of food from around the world at a local neighborhood restaurant in just about any city.
I know that there is great food everywhere - if you look. Same here in Denmark, but we also have the type of food for a given crowd, closest to where that crowd hang out - relevant to what they want to pay. I can see a Michelin restaurant from my apartment... but I never went there.... but my boss did.
I fairly believe that he might just encountered the fact, that in a huge industrial area, at some maybe late hour... it can be difficult to get something to eat - I admit, that his story did not provide that level of information.
