each year, i visit germany for a trade show and each time i look for a restaurant that will serve good old fashioned nuremberg sausages, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes. even though friedrichshafen is less than 3 hours drive from nuremberg, i still have not found.
and so it is quite ironic that i must come here in guangzhou to find this delicacie. indeed, at "1920", the name of the restaurant, you can find an extensive german "octoberfest" food & beer menu that is actually as good if not better than what i had in munich some years ago.
they also have a pretty decent wine list and the food quite varied and tasty. on the menu are have "wine" platters, one consisting of cheese, grape, and rye bread, the ohter cold cuts, lettuce, cheese, and rye bread.
maria and i arrived late and even though, their small outside terrace was full and we had to wait a while so we had a ‘paulaner weissbier’ and reviewed the day. the wait was well worth it as when our meal arrived, it was delicious and exactly as expected. Maria had a new item on the menu which was "munich" meatballs on a bed of mashed potatoes which was a bomb of flavour at the bite. of course i had my nuremberg sausage and sauerkraut and it brought me straight back to my student days when i backpacked across europe and stop in nuremberg on my way somewhere else.
a little bit of germany right here in the heart of guangzhou.
