Europe 2013: Rick Steves, can you publish a German Food Tour Guide?

Why didn’t anyone tell us how delicious the food is in Germany? In all of your defense, however, we stayed with a friend of ours–a local– so he knew the best places already. Which makes it easier being a tourist–he pretty much did the hard part of already weeding out the not-so-great eats.  (We eventually had to confess to Patrick that we had McDonald’s. We can be complete suckers for free wi-fi sometimes.)

In all honesty, some of the most delicious meals in Europe thus far were in Germany. We already mentioned the pot roast from the brewery.  There were also some amazing pieces of cake from Suli’s in Dusseldorf. We’re cake people, so you have our word on how delicious the cake was. Mine was Apple, and Jess had a Cheesecake-topped Chocolate Cake. It was one of those times when you want everyone else to taste how great it is, but at the same time you want the entire slice all to yourself. So maybe get two pieces. One to share, and one to devour on your own, haha. While you’re there, get a Mint Tea, because they serve the most legit Mint Tea we’ve ever tried.

And then there was the Turkish “doner”. Maybe we’re totally messing up the translation, but if doner translates to donair…then Newfoundland is doing it wrong. Plain and simple. Because we inhaled these things in Germany. And we’ve never ever had a donair at home because they just look, well, nasty. (Again, maybe they’re not meant to be the same). Let’s just say the German/Turkish doner was one of the best things we’ve ever eaten. We can’t even properly explain what it consisted of. Bread, lamb meat, veggies, sauces, and perhaps sheep cheese. AMAZING.

I’ll just stop here. Writing this has made me hungry. I wonder if Paris has a doner equivalent.
