Comment your town, link(s) and eventually some thoughts below this post here.
Something special in Bonn? Thoughts about Bochum? Some words:
Yes, the “Rheinische Küche” exists with very specific dishes, but it’s just a nostalgic wish, that it reflects Bonn’s soul or gives this area an own identity like “Schweinshaxe mit Sauerkaut”, because it is not practised regulary.
The ordinary food (especially in public) is Currywurst/Pommes, Pizza, Salad, Döner, Icecream and of course McDonalds, Subway, “mobile” Crepes and so on, like in nearly every German town. And lunch with “International cuisine” in the canteen.
SAUCISSE AU CURRY: Saucisse au curry en plus pommes de terre avec mayonnaise.
SOUL FOOD: ‘The knight in shining armor.’
AID: Since 1998 the Wattenscheider Tafel e.V. gives aid by distributing food to the indigent, by collecting spill-over groceries from supermarkets and donations. Further they support people in need by clothes, furniture and language courses. One of Germany’s first organization which uses the spill-over-distribution principle (if I’m not wrong, I think it wast he first !).
