Beside the usual street food offerings, a variety of other food carts were offering their wares because of the Christmas Market (which was sadly more like a flea market selling most of the same items you could find in the souvenir shops). These included freshly fried potato chips (yum), honey wine or mead (eh, so so), giant chicken kabobs (J enjoyed these), plum pies, a variety of sausages, big hunks of ham roasting away, langoše (deep fried dough with pizza like toppings- very yummy), and the famous Trdlo or trdelník.
This year for Christmas J and I headed to the most Christmas-y place we could think of, Munich. We were hoping to have a white Christmas, but as per our typical vacation standards the weather hasn’t been cooperating much. That aside, the food has been fantastic (and the beer is great too!). Because we’re staying in hotels, I’m not doing much, or, any cooking this week. But hey, I’ve still got delicious food news to share with you! Munich should be called the delicious food capital of the world.Oh my, the food, the food, the food. Instead of planning where we would go and what we would see on this vacation, all I have thought about is food. Forget the museums or the history lessons, for two weeks I’ve “researched” what delicious treats I’d like to try!
Handgemachte (handmade) treats are for sale at little booths all over the city at various Krindlemarkets (Christmas Markets). I can’t wait to get home and start trying to make some of these goodies myself. Rather, I suppose I can wait…because that means I get to enjoy more of these delicious treats!
Not only are the traditional snacks at the Christmas Markets absolutely delicious, but I’m sure if you were here any other time of year there would be just as many scrumptious choices.
It seems like every corner has a deli, bar or food stand with a plethora of easy, on the go food options. The Hauptbahnhof, or Munich Central Station also has a wonderful cafeteria, where they not only serve good eats, but you can also enjoy a beer. Yum!
