Some Food in Germany

Tonight I will share some of my dinners from the past week. Take a look at all five and let me know which one you would order.

Pork Steak, Potatoes, Kartoffel HouseMy first dinner was at The KartoffelhausI had the Thuringer Rostbratel. This is one of the regional specialties for Thuringia. If you look closely you will see a pork steak buried underneath all the grilled onions.

Lasagna, Jena, Germany, The Tavern

The second dinner was at a restaurant that I had not been to before. Two of my students took me to a combination Italian/Greek restaurant. I decided to go with a lasagna. It is a bit different that what we expect in the US, but more like what you get in Italy. It was delicious.

Birnen-Pfanne, Restauration Stilbruch, Jena, WagnergasseNext came a visit to Restauration Stilbruch for one of my favorite dishes.  Doesn’t the Birnen-Pfanne look delicious . This wonderful dish of potatoes, pears and pork was really nice comfort food on a cold wet day.

Farmer's Breakfast, Potato House, Kartoffelhaus, Jena, Germany, German Cuisine

On Friday night I went back to the Kartoffelhaus for Bauernfrüstück. This farmer’s breakfast is another of my favorites.

Last night I made it back to Restauration Stilbruch again and had Rote-Pfanne or Red Pan. This is my second favorite dish there and if I make a second visit during a trip I have it instead of the Birnen-Pfanne.

I hope to make it to another of my favorite restaurants this week. I tried to go there last night and the wait for food would have been over an hour. I was too hungry to wait so went back to Stilbruch.

Which of these dishes would you pick?
