Walking past this venue this evening, they have a board outside announcing that they are having an official opening evening on Thursday 15th October at 6 pm with free food and a genuine German Oom- Pah band.
May be worth a look if anyone is in the area.
Thanks to posters in this thread. I went past on the bus and saw the signs but couldn't see any details and came on to the web to find out information and as always SE1 Forum provided. I love German beer and food and to have somewhere so close (Zeitgeist in Lambeth is excellent but this is 10mins on the bus from me....) is excellent, I will be dragging people willingly/unwillingly to this place very soon!
I'd be glad to be put in the picture about German food. I don't know much about it at all, although my little experience of it has not been good (starting with being poisoned by a bratwurst in Langhans in 1978!). I always think of ghastly fatty sausages. I can take or leave sauerkraut, although red cabbage with juniper and apples I like. The only other thing I think I know is that that Bavarians have carp for Christmas. Oh, and there's a nice onion tart with caraway seeds and bacon which is good!
I've tried the specialities of lots of different cuisines and, without a doubt, Germany's is the wurst.
I'll get my coat.
That made me laugh! I do enjoy the occasional hotdog but never buy any from those dodgy sellers on Bankside. That German delicatessen near the Market Porter on Park Street does nice Frankfurters, although a bit pricey.
