I eat pizza and chips and pretty much the most unhealthy foods you can possibly think of, and all i drink is soda or uhh...alcoholica beverages. Lucky for me I have a fast motabolism, and i skateboard till I'm ready to pass-out everyday. The typical america teenage diet, that's why so many people here are fat, cause we have such bad eating habits.

Lets see... these are typical "schwäbisch" (swabian, southern germany) ones.


1.Maultaschen & Potato Salad
Maultaschen -> Look like huge raviolis filled with a mixture of meat and vegetables

2. Sauerkraut & Potato cream or Sauerkraut & Schupfnudeln
Sauerkraut -> "Kraut" in vinegar
Schupfnudeln -> Kind of thick noodles, you don´t cook them in water but fry them in a pan

3.Bretzel
I think you know the word, but our bretzels are differen´t from those that you know. I think american bretzels are more like crackers, ours are like bread.

And beer of course wink5
I think we also have quite good chocolate, although not as famous as the chocolate from switzerland

We are quite fond of meat, but not as much as the french
Fish is very seldom eaten

wow tapir! that German food has got me hungry!! colgate

We eat Sauerkraut here too, and we often put sliced pieces of hot dogs in it and call it "Sauerkraut and Weenies" ^^ It's usually ate as a side dish with a meat focused dinner.

I've never heard of "Maultaschen" but it sounds delicious!! :D Mmmm, raviolis! I don't really care for potato salad though, but it's served here very often.

I also think American's spell and pronounce their "Bretzels" as "Pretzels" wink5

YES! Germany has good chocolate!! I have a tin of Gernman Chocolates I got a few days ago. I think the company is called "Stoilwerck." I don't usually like many sweets or candy, but I have already ate half of the tin! grin

My personal favorite food is Pizza!

But what is more usual here is probably:
Fishballs"made out of fishmeat wink5", all kinds of other flavors of fish, Meatcakes
and even whalebeef"some hate us for that" wink5

I noticed that as well! A few years ago there was an explosion of culture (or something), and every mall in the country opened at least 1 sushi place. I can't say I hate the stuff, but it's unusual to see it appear so quickly.

I wouldn't say Kangaroo was eaten commonly here. Well, at least not anywhere I've ever lived. I had it once (novelty dinner at the state show one year), but I don't recall it being particularly different to a lot of other more common meat.

A popular style of food here is barbecue. It seems standing around outdoors burning various kinds of meat while you're distracted by your mates with a beer in your hand is something of a tradition. It also requires a lot of effort, and I’m not a huge fan of the outdoors. So, I generally eat things that require 5 minutes in the microwave.

I hear meat pies aren't too common in other countries. I suppose that surprised me a little, given how popular they are here. It's just standard pie pastry with mince beef inside - how can you go wrong with that? smile

Is meat pies like Shepards Pie, Chicken Pot Pie, or Turkey Pot Pie? If so, we eat a good bit of meat pies. It's usually during special occasions or on good nights. smile My favorite is Sherpards Pie, but a good home made chicken pot pie is great too! :D

Isn't it a bit stringy?

I honestly couldn't remember.

To be truthful, I really don't understand man's desire to taste every single type of animal they possibly can. "Look, what's that little furry thing? Let's see what it tastes like!"

I don't think it's worse to eat Kangaroos (if there are a lot of them) than eating cows or pigs.
