Food Advice

by Pepper14

Jallo! I'm going to Dusseldorf to take a short course at the IIK (Univ. of Heinrich-Heine) and will be staying with a host family. I heard that supper is a "cold meal" and being from Manila, I am used to having warm meals for dinner (i.e. rice, pasta, meat, etc.) Are there places in Dusseldorf that sells inexpensive take-out food? Would you recommend buying at local markets or stores and cook at home? How costly is food in Dusseldorf? Any info would be appreciated! D anke!

Re: Food Advice

Supper has been a cold meal in the past but I think a lot of families have changed this, as most family members are working the day over. So most German families are having a warm supper too.

There are some Asian cuisines that sell take out food for a good price too. Düsseldorf itself is more of the more expensive cities in Germany.

Ask my sister Sabsi for more info, she is living there!

Yours,
Bigs

If you are staying with a host family I think the last thing to worry about is the food. It is rarely to have cold dinner. There is usually meat too. One thing that you can ask your hosts is that if its possible to have rise or pasta instead of the more common potatoes.

Hello:
As part of the general experience of a new culture (and if nothing else, then for the sake of politeness to your host family) why don't you try sharing whatever meal it is? Then on the second evening, perhaps you could offer to prepare them a 'typical' Philipino dinner.
Guten Appetit!

Re: Re: Food Advice

Yes, I agree on this and I do like to eat always the local food where ever I am visiting. But also part of culture learning is for the host to respect his guests. When we have in our company guests from East Asia we always give instructions to the chef that lunch & dinner must include also rice. Rice is like bread there, without it, it's like having no food at all, so if you can provide it you make your guest happier. Also, I do not expect Jewish or Muslim guests to eat the Schnitzel that is pork before you verify how religious they are and if they eat such or not.

I would add that many Germans take hospitality very seriously. My advice as guest in Germany would be that refusing hospitality is a bad idea. Politeness will get you a long way :)

Re: Re: Food Advice

ps Gili's view is also a useful one for those with guests from elsewhere.

Hi Pepper!

for dinner i don't think you need to worrie :)
for lunch, what'«s more certain to happen is for you to go out with your new colleagues to eat.
In Altstad you get a lot of restaurants with the mittagKarte or menus for 5 euros (food + non-alcoholic drink), or 8-10 euros on a non-menu thing. it' s just a matter of looking for it.
Recommend for instance in Altstad (5Eur menus) the restaurant HAM-HAM and the Swan (huge plates).
oh! and they understand you if you try to speak german or don't speak it at all ;) but the purpose is to speak german ;)

Travel Tips for Düsseldorf

Internet Access

by sabsi

When you are in Düsseldorf and need to check your email or want to check what's going on on VT there are several places to do this. I am trying to find out where they are and will list as many as possible here.

On the third floor of the department store "Kaufhof" at Königsallee there are several computers that have internet access. I think the sign said that it's € 1 for half an hour. Königsallee is right in the city centre, subways and trams stop at Heinrich-Heine-Allee, the Kaufhof is right next to the stop.

The g@rden is a bar at the Rhine (close to the Burgplatz in the old town) which apparently has an Internet cafe as well. Unfortunately I don't know any prices, sorry! Their website is http://www.garden.de, the address is Rathausufer 8, 40218 Düsseldorf.

Some more Alt???

by Bigs about Frankenheim Brauereiausschank

The Frankenheim is one of the typical brewhouses in Düsseldorf.... Sabs always enter the place before and after her Finnish course, so I have been there too...

The staff is friendly and it´s not so hectical as in the famous brewhouses in the old town... None........of course!

Bagels for Breakfast

by sandysmith about Bagel

Dusseldorf now has a bagel bar and we popped in here for breakfast one morning.
The shop assistant was very helpful explaining all the bagel choices to us - in perfect English - not surprising as he came from Manchester! The chargrilled chicken with apricot Salsa was delicious as was the smoked salmon with dill on a multigrain bagel - well I had to have nore than one with all the choice on offer.

ALTSTADT

by Lalique

ALTSTADT
Has a lot of nice old houses and cute narrow streets as well as full of bars and pubs which gave another name to this part of the city - Die laengeste Theke der Welt (the longest stand in the wolrd). Here you can have the most funny and merry time staying in Dusseldorf. But it gets the most exiting during the Carnival (February-March).

The new city gate

by DanielF

Just like the medieval cities used to have their gates, D?sseldorf let recently build an impressive building on the entrance of the tunnel under the Rheinpromenade. This building is inspired in a gate and is a stunning piece of architeture.
