    Love that you got to experience a true Hessisch moment. My mom lives in Darmstadt, just south of Frankfurt. Never been to Atschel but we will be going when when back in the area… oh … btw .. that food! Looks great!

      I liked the tavern and the litte one-roomness of it. Didn’t realize it was a ‘true Hessisch moment’ though.
      We went to a local place in Freiburg that makes Green Sauce and it wasn’t as good as Atschel according to Ali, so that is certainly a recommendation. The atmosphere was cool.

    I think I’d like Apple Wine. Yum! The whole place is like a work of art, from the serving pitchers, to the food presentation to even the chalk board. Looks lovely.

      The apple wine was very good. Definitely something I would drink more of here if they had it.
      The place was really cute and felt traditional. A lot of the local taverns in Germany try to have that kind of decor. Some are more successful than others. This one was good.

    Looks like some pretty good German dishes! I’d love to try the apple wine sometime.

      It was the standard German idea of meat and potatoes, just with some other sauces.Humble ingredients presented differently.

      It tasted better than I expected given the ingredient list. It does look very pretty though.

    […] interesting combination that worked really well, and I especially enjoyed it because of the onions. Andy doesn’t like onions so this wasn’t his favorite dish, but I love onions. The apple wine was brought out in a […]

    I will definitely have to try these regional specialties next time I am in the Frankfurt area.

      Yes, definitely the applewine. And really even this was just a slice of the menu, there were other things including some form of ribs on the menu.

    I really liked the hand cheese with onions and the green sauce, a lot more than you did. Surprised me that I liked the green sauce so much. I’d order it again if they had it here, but I’m sure I’ll have to wait until we’re in the Frankfurt area again sometime.

      They have it at the Kartoffelhaus in Freiburg if you ever want to try that place again.
