“Leckeres Essen in Deutschland”
I began this 2011, and the collection of photos has grown to something more. I think food throughout Germany can be colourful and delicious, and can offer variety outside of the traditional “meat and starch” fare.
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.
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.
In Berlin, I finally drop by the “Curry 36 Am Zoo” currywurst stand I’d been eyeing next to the “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.
