Germany 2015: Snacks11/01/2015 08:39:00 PM
More Germany posts! Today, I wanted to share with you some of the snacks we had in Germany - by which I mean takeaway, food court meals, and other casual snacky bites. Fun fun!
Huge Turkish population in Germany. This means excellent döner kebabs!

One night Sandra was craving Asian, so we got some takeaway from the local Lampertheim Chinese Restaurant, Restaurant China-Town. Chinese food in this part of Germany is, well, not great, and certainly not authentic. But this Kung Pao chicken was salty and sweet and spicy and just fine for a quick dinner. (More interesting for me is the German-language menu. A lunch buffet with sushi and ice-cream!)

Below we have some grilled fish with chips from Nordsee, a seafood chain. We came here for lunch one day while shopping at the Rhein-Neckar-Zentrum in Viernheim.
Next up we have what I think of as more traditional German snack food - sausages, fried potatoes and so on - things you can get at an Imbiss (snack house) or in those stalls next to the big supermarkets. This is the stuff I crave when I'm away from Germany!
The first few photos are from the local Imbiss, Grillhütte. We came here for lunch one day when Margit was working and couldn't cook us one of her amazing lunches. Check out this giant vat of Bratkartoffeln (fried potato slices with onions). Get in mah belly!

I can't quite remember what this was, but I think it was a pork cutlet covered in sautéed onions and served with Bratkartoffeln.

Another day, we took advantage of the gorgeous summer weather and went for a swim at the open air pool in Bürstadt... where I was thrilled to discover they had a great snack stand!

Currywurst mit Brötchen, Pommes, Wurst und Pommes, Frikadellen im Brötchen...
That's sausage with curry ketchup and a bread roll, fries, sausage and fries, and burgers in a bread roll. Perfect bikini diet, amirite?

Finally, I wanted to show you a quick meal we had at Gusticus, which is a chain of German servos. This particular one was on the way back from Amsterdam. I thought we were just going to eat something small, but the portions here were huuuuuge, even by German standards!
I had some Fleischkäse mit Spiegelei und Bratkartoffeln - pork meatloaf topped with a fried egg and served with more of those delicious Bratkartoffeln.

Sausage with Bratkartoffeln! Incidentally, that drink on the side, "Mezzo Mix", is popular all over Germany. It goes by many other names, including Kalter Kaffee (cold coffee) or Spezzi, and is basically a mix of coke and Fanta. I don't get it, but each to their own!

Gulaschsuppe mit Brötchen! (Spicy goulash soup with a bread roll).
I'm sure you can see why I've been trying to eat more healthily since we've gotten back!
