Guten tag, y’all! So I was in Frankfurt, Germany for literally one night yesterday. Given such little time, what way to best experience Germany than through its cuisine?! So here’s my second time eating German food, ever (the first time was in Solvang, California, surprisingly…which was actually a little Dutch town).
I was recommended to try schnitzel and spatzle from my personal food connoisseur (aka Christina). In the end, I tried one of those two – the schnitzel – which was fried pork cutlet.
Oddly enough, the fried pork really reminded me of tonkatsu (the Korean version of fried pork cutlets!). It tasted pretty good with the “green sauce,” which was made with herbs & spices. Of course, no German meal is complete without a big mug of BEER.
That night, I was waaay too stuffed to try strudel for dessert. But no fear! Today we stopped in a small village when passing through the Black Forest to Switzerland. There, I seized the opportunity to try more authentic German food:
You know what else German meals are incomplete without? Potatoes. I’ve had literally meat and potatoes for every meal in this country and in the countries before (Belgium & Amsterdam). In the end, I thought that the sausages were aight…like, they tasted like a normal hot dog wiener. I thought it’d be like bratwurst (or are wieners and bratwurst the same thing?) that would be way more tasty like the ones I had in Solvang. Luckily, I was consoled by my apfelstrudel!
It was dee-lish. Seriously, get it whenever you can in Germany! It’s like how you must get crepes or macaroons in France. Simply put, the hot apple pie + cold vanilla ice cream = heaven.
Have you ever eaten German food before? What are your favorite German dishes?
