|Snitzel sandwich w/ french fries|
I've been eating REALLY badly since I got to Germany.. luckily we don't have our car yet so we've been walking/taking the bus everywhere.. so I've been walking atleast 2 hr. mininum a day.. sometimes as much as 8 hours just touring the city. These snitzel sandwiches are CRAZY delicious.. I've noticed that the meats here taste a bit more gamey then in the US.. ie. the chicken tastes more chicken-y and the pork really tastes more porky here! The Germans REALLY love bread and they have the most delicious bread I've ever had in my entire life. The french fries are also fried well.. I actually think they taste better than American french fries and they sprinkle the french fries with paprika which is SO GOOD!! I've never tasted french fries with paprika before but now that I've had it I don't want to eat french fries without it anymore hahaha.
Touring our local grocery store called Norma.
Further proof that you can take the girl out of Hawaii but you can't take the Hawaii out of the girl!!
I'm amazed at what you can pick up at your local grocery store.
Produce, check, Meats, check, Hub cap, check!
Weiner's in jars! They have them in all sorts of flavors - original, chili, spicy, onion, garlic and many other crazy flavours. They take their sausage VERY seriously here and for the first time I don't feel guilty when I eat a hot dog hahahah. But I do think there hot dog tastes a lot better then the american counterparts and I think they're also a lot healthier. They taste "cleaner" I don't know if that really makes sense but they really do!
The word "Eis" pronouced "Ice" is actually ice cream. They don't have ice in Germany they don't carry it in the resturants and you can't buy it in a bag at the grocery store like you would in the US. When you ask for "Eis" they ask you what flavor you want and when you try to explain that you want ice cubes they look at you like you are crazy.
I can't wait to move into our new place because I miss having a kitchen and I'm mostly crazy excited about trying all the different pre-packaged and conveniance foods from the grocery store hahaha.
Currywurst is very popular in Germany it's essentially a cut up bratwurst in a ketchip sauce w/ curry spice sprinkled on top.
They really love cold cut meats and cheeses here. Most of their breakfast's include some form of cold cuts and cheeses with some of their fantastic breads and rolls.
The drinks I've noticed are much less sweet than the american counterparts and are significantly less in calories. A large soda here is normally at the most around 100 calories.
Cold cuts from your kiddies!! Cold cuts in the shape of bears hahaha I thought this was so adorable!
See they are really shaped like bears!!!!
They take their prepared deli foods very seriously!
I feel like in the US the prepared foods section is usually like roast chicken, fried chicken and mac & cheese. Here the foods are very fresh and the colors are very bright and vibrant.
Halfway through our stay at our last hotel they ran out of hotel rooms!! We thought we would have found an apartment much sooner but we didn't. So we had to move (our 10 pieces of luggage and 2 dogs) to the Mecure hotel. You have NO IDEA how much of a drag that was.. but atleast the new bathroom was pretty HAHAHA.
I don't typically like to order room service food because it's so expensive but sometimes after a long day I have to admit there's nothing better and more luxurious than donning pj's and picking up the phone and having food delivered to your hotel room and then letting someone else clean it up :p
