Good eats in Germany
“Essen und Trinken in Deutschland”
CAUTION: The photos you are about to see may cause unstoppable drooling. If you get the case of the noms, I claim full responsibility.
Over a two-week interval in early-fall 2011, I went up and down the length of Germany. I started in Frankfurt, a short hop to Köln, north to Hamburg, back to Frankfurt, east to München, south to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and finally, back to Frankfurt.
That was about 1900 km (1200 mi) of traveling on the train, but there was some food in between …
Foreground: Wiener veal-schnitzel with fries, lemon slices, capers, sardines. Background: Flammkuche with feta, green chiles, olives, onion : RheinZeit, Köln – 29 September 2011.
Döner sandwich with cilanto, onion, red hot peppercorns; Ayran yogurt-drink : Oruc, Köln – 29 September 2011.
Lunch starter, thin bread with spicy red dip, sour cream with carrot, sour cream with cucumber : Mangal, Köln – 30 September 2011.
Lunch main, grilled lamb over wood/coal grill : Mangal, Köln – 30 September 2011.
Künefe, baked dessert with angel hair, cheese-center, cream and walnuts on top, all on thin layer of honey : Mangal, Köln – 30 September 2011.
Currywurst (spicy), fries, Fritz-Kola : Edelcurry, Hamburg – 1 October 2011.
Hamsi (Sardellen) fried-fish sandwich, fresh lemonade : Meral’s Imbiss (döner boat on the river Main), Frankfurt am Main – 3 October 2011.
Jägerbraten (hunter’s style roast pork in mushroom sauce), homemade Spätzle : Gasthof Werdenfelser-Hof, Partenkirchen – 8 October 2011.
Even with this small sample, I do think food throughout Germany can be colourful and tasty, and can offer variety outside of the traditional “meat and starch” fare. Now and again, I do want the latter; the final photo above is evidence of that!
What’s timely is this post on Käsespätzle (from Nov 11) : please go read Laurel’s post, and tell her how fantastic that photograph of Käsespätzle looks.
For your interest, here’s where I described my travel plans and my rail itinerary with a RailEurope pass:
- Yet another trip with German Rail, 23 Aug 2011.
- Saving money with a (German) Rail Pass, 15 Sep 2011.
- Flexibility with a German Rail Pass, 19 Sep 2011.
I made the eight photos above between 29 September and 8 October 2011. This post is published originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
