I started this series of food pictures in 2011, and the collection of photos has grown to something more. I think food throughout Germany can be colourful and delicious, and can offer interesting variety outside of the traditional “meat and starch”.
The photos you are about to see may cause drooling.

Bakery chains are not in short supply in Germany: left, Rosinenschnecke (“raisin snail”) and right, Mohnplunder (danish with poppy seed filling). Also, it’s cheaper to buy breakfast from a local- or chain-bakery than to take part in your hotel’s breakfast. From one of many Kamps in Berlin, 27 Nov 2014 (6D1).
Panierte Hähnchenbrust auf Pilz-Zwiebel-Gurkenragout mit Gemüsenudeln in Kräuter-Sahnesosse (breaded chicken breast on mushroom, onion, and cucumber ragout, with noodles in herb cream sauce). At Auerbachs Keller, Leipzig – 2 Dec 2014 (6D1).
In Berlin, I finally drop by the “Curry 36 Am Zoo” currywurst stand I’d been eyeing next to Berlin’s “Zoo” train station. I ordered a double currywurst (ohne Darm/no casing), scharf/spicy, and a side of pommes (paw’-mes) with a dollop of mayo. A heart attack special on a paper plate: it was nomtastic. Photo on 9 Dec 2014 (6D1).
From left to right, respectively: a standard breakfast”, with Mohnkrone (poppyseed filling), latte macchiato, and Puddingbrezel. Dresden Hbf – 22 Apr 2015 (6D1).

Dönerteller with Döner beef, fries, salad, spicy sauce on the side: Lokanta, Berlin-Westend – 14 Oct 2017 (iPT6).
A Döner(teller) is complete only with an Ayran yogurt-drink. The regular is very acceptable, but I do like the mango. Berlin – 16 Oct 2017 (iPT6).
