Food and dishes from your region

Recommended Posts

I've seen a high interest in the "American food" thread and people describing their desparities for each region. (aka Bild from Texas and Bane from NY)

Since we are very international I thought we could share our regional food and national food in general. Perhaps we can just create a foodporn thread.

 

I'll start then.

So here in North Germany and especially Lower Saxony we have rather hearty and solid meals containing potatoes(huehue).

The regional dish is inofficially "Grünkohl mit Bregenwurst und Speck". I hope to find the best translation. It's like curly kale with a special hearty sausage and bacon. When feasting you go for a regional Hannovarian beer.

It usually looks like that

I'll add a special dish from the region of Spain where I lived later.

I don't see any grill marks on the sausage, is it cooked? And why even live in a world where we have to eat boiled potatoes? This is the reason why Germans never smile.

Yes, those are cooked within the curly kale and bacon. Only the potatoes are seperately cooked.

So its like wurst and greens?

 

I can dig it.

 

But for real, them taters look bland, and wouldn't spatzle be a better choice for a starch with this dish?

Ahahaha you call that a potato dish

i was born in potato

molded in it

BEHOLD the cepelinai made from potatoes in special secret machines that only Lithuanians have access too that specifically cut potatoes to transform into this its inside could be a number of different things but most common are meat stuffing or curds (the lithuanian curd type that only poland and baltics have accesses to) with sour cream on top

Yea, pretty much.

I guess they look not very delicious because of the image. I just used the first one I found on google. And spätzle is Schwabic food (South Germany but not Bavaria). We barely eat those over here, we have potatoes.

Ugh, fucking oranje. That's the most German food over here.

There's an enclave of Southern Germans/Austrians about 40 minutes from where I live so I'm somewhat familiar with the food from those regions due to all the restaurants/bars there. (It was really strange drinking warm beer.)

 

Can't say I have any experience with North Germany though.

Warm beer? That's very unusual over here.

Time for the Yids to enter the fray:

 

Chicken Schnitzel with Latkes and Paprika Gravy

A Corned Beef sandwich with Latkes in place of bread.

Cask Ale? That's been starting to gain a lot of traction around here, most "beer bars" will have one or two cask options. The restaurant I work at (Owned by an Englishman) has one as well. Very hit or miss with people

 

Everything was served at room temperature it what I meant by "warm".

@Potatoe_Head, you probably stole it during the war, just like our bikes. Go eat sauerkraut and drink your inferior German beer. @Bildsturmer, the beer must have been English. That's the only country I know of where they drink 'warm' beer.

Lived there. That's about it... not much better food down there.

Actually theres much more better food, spain has a mix of mediterranian-atlantic and continental clima so we have a lot variety when it comes to food.

Yep, but it seems so monotonic whereever you go. Spanish food was always hyped and considered the best among my family, but I was just very dissapointed after having all of that for over a year.
