We’ll start with the good stuff…. today’s cake comes from the Backerei Ludwig and the girl said it was a Himbeer-Schokolade mumblemumblemumble. So something with raspberries and chocolate, which is enough to sell me.
Something sweet was quite necessary for me this afternoon, as I went to the Altstadtfest today for lunch, and had a bit of a food fail.
Nürnberg’s Altstadtfest has all sorts of food, drink, and the usual round-up of German sweets. I was also told it’s a great place to meet yourself a “rich German farmer” (whatever that may mean). But I went there for some lunch today and found myself at a bit of a loss when checking out the menu. I’m not sure if there were a lot of local/regional specialties, or what, but not too much was easily recognizable. And having the dictionary didn’t help much either. So I just ordered one of the Vorspeisen (appetizers), and hoped for the best. This is what I got….
Here is the menu description:
hearty red onion vinaigrette, radish and bread
