For professional reasons I’m very often in Cologne. From time to time it then also happens that my German colleagues or my Belgian colleagues who joined me to Cologne, feel like going out for dinner. As you guys may know by now, my motto is when in Rome, do as the Romans, so … in Cologne this doesn’t change.
Who thinks of Germany, thinks without any doubt of huge glasses of beer and heavy food.
The place where you can find this for sure, is art Päffgen, you’ll be getting a looooooot of beer. As they won’t stop serving until you put your beverage coaster on your glass. This is served with some “Haxen & Hämchen” (knuckles & ham), but watch out this is no food for beginners J because you get a lot of meat!! I could show you pictures from colleagues of mine stuffing and putting all their weight to eat that piece, but out of respect for them I will not put those pictures on this blog . Oooh and 1 advice, don’t take an appetizer as you won’t be able to finish your main course.
We always go to the city center Salzgasse bierhaus (as it is close to everything).
No better way to taste the real good German food!!
Hope you’ll get the change to try it. Let me know how it was?
