The food or das Essen here is delicious. There has been some really tasty food that I have tried. Although my eating times are off and I am not used to them at all. In fact the day we got here I was so hungry and by the time we actually ate lunch which was pretty much dinner, I felt as though I had a mini-fast. Anyways they make super soft, fluffy, rich and heavy tasting pretzels and some of the bread is hard on the outside and more airy on the inside. The pastries are flakey, sometimes messy and taste very buttery. I have had some filled with jelly which are a bit sweet for early morning class and some more dense made with nuts or nut spread. I ate these tart pomegranate-like seeds that look like mini grapes and were a nice sweet fruit to try. The Fanta tastes different supposedly because oranges here taste different and it doesn’t taste as rich in fake extract. Its lighter and somewhat less bubbly but I am a fan! Also lemonade in London was less lemony and had bubbles which made the taste a bit like sprite or 7-up. The salmon I ate the first night was smooth, easy to cut using only my fork and was quite flavorful. It was served with hollandaise sauce, which I haven’t really had before but I liked it, as it topped broccoli which was steamed fresh. The potatoes were pan fried and reminded me a bit like country style potatoes but less fried. I have also tried Turkish dunno kabobs which are like big pita sandwiches with salad and meat or in my case, falafel. Its also on the cheaper side of food and quite tasty. I even tried some fresh baklava which was also probably one of the best and was a small sweet square that I almost struggled to finish. Back in the states some food I can’t handle because it’s too fried or too rich and makes me feel sick but I have not had that experience yet. Thank God! Well maybe its just my stomach realizes much of this food is similar to food I have eaten before and my stomach recognizes this is really my home. All that German running through my blood is finally paying off!
