Frankfurt, Germany

I was in Frankfurt for a couple of days for business. Did not have much time to go around, but was able to try a few typical dishes and sone local beers...

For lunch, Herring. I think this is more a Dutch speciality but this one was excellent. Very buttery texture.

Typical platter: sausage, sauerkraut, meat loaf, haxe (pork knuckles), etc... With lots of Kartoffen (potatoes)

All this washed down with a couple of glasses of applewein (German cider)

Some curiosities, a german mobile bratwurst vendor:

Many stalls selling chips and pretzels(very popular around here) and for some reason, popcorn too is quite popular.

Hefeweizen beer...had a few of these ...

That's all the time I had here. Til my next trip...Auf wiedersehen!! Prost!

i love german cider! oddly, it can be enjoyed piping hot on a very cold winter day, perfect with bratwurst and sauerkraut!

This one was mixed with sparkling water or something. It was quite good and refreshing
