Those of you who know a little German may know that kartoffel is potato, so basically the name of the restaurant is the Potato House. In the title of the post I simply referred to it as Kartoffelhaus, but the number one is also part of the name. This is a small chain of restaurants, with at least seven locations.
The first time I ate here on my trip I had the Bauernfrüstück, this translates to Farmer’s Breakfast. The dish is a large potato omelette with egg, roasted potatoes, onions and bacon.A very delicious combination.
I thought about focusing on the rustic decor of the restaurant, but I will save that for a future post. What caught my eye while looking at my pictures tonight were several paintings on the wall, ceiling and doors.
The little cartoon above was on the ceiling. Here we have a potato, and egg and an onion together. The words mmm… leckere Bratkartoffeln translate to mmm… delicious roasted potatoes. That they are.
The most interesting paintings however are on two doors.
It is often confusing to know which door to choose when you need to go to the bathroom in Germany. The common titles on the bathroom doors are Herren and Damen. If you are not thinking you might see Her and think it is the ladies and men and think it is for the men. You would be wrong 🙂
The Kartoffelhaus has a visual solution.
Can you figure out which door is which?
