its a speciality that germans eat maybe once a year!
I have no clue what you people are pancaking about, over here I havent seen anyone make pancakes
Schnitzle and salad especially potatoe salad is delicious and their german gravys are delicious too.
Metbroetchen is also good, its grinded raw meat with spices.
I'm not a fan of the sausages, but i've come to like the german food. Infact after my weekend trip to Rome, german food over here is indeed better quality.
Germans also dont eat bacon like the english.
I'm glad you clarified that, Fran. Germans find it hysterical that they're referred to as "Krauts", because they really don't eat much in the way of sauerkraut. IME, Americans and the French eat far more.
There are lots
of different kinds of sausages here, some quite good, and others a bit disgusting, like "Blutwurst". What's to die for is the bread
here. There are so many different varieties of breads and rolls (and soft pretzels, of course). People who visit Germany really rave about the bread, and those who live here really miss it when they're abroad.
German cuisine is very big on salads, egg noodles, and dumplings of many varieties, but pancakes really aren't a regular part of the diet. Schnitzel (cutlets) are, but the same is true of Austria, and former Austrian territories, like Hungary and the Czech Republic.
