Don't tell me that you didn't consider this. Yep, I had a hamburger in hamburg. Although Hamburg is jokingly said to be the birthplace of the hamburger, this is just a myth. The hamburger was named after Hamburg. Original Hamburg dishes are "Birnen, Bohnen und Speck" (green runner beans cooked with pears and bacon), "Aalsuppe" (eel soup), "Bratkartoffeln", "Finkenwerder Scholle" (fried plaice), Pannfisch (fried fish), Rote Grütze (something similar to summer pudding consisting mainly of red berries) and "Labskaus".

Drink the local Beer - Astra
Whilst in Hamburg i would have to confess to drinking my fair share of the fine local beer, Astra.
A refreshingly light lager which is readily available and relatively inexpensive throughout Hamburg.
The consequences of having say 5 or 6 pints show that although light tasting the alcoholic content may be quite high.
Check out their rather bizarre website, better if you speak German but still amusing regardless.

You know Germans look quite...
You know Germans look quite strange zometimez and they eat strange stuff ... but this is the strangest I've ever seen !!! After this bad pic we went for eating this colored fruit (cause u have to know Frau Fraedrich cannot avoid shopping when she gets in touch with strange stuff :-) and it was not so bad ... I guess Germans are not so bad as well choosing their food ...
Arriving November? Enjoy Traditional Roast Goose!
During the month of November you may notice an abundance of fresh geese and roast goose in your local supermarkets, bistros, and pubs. Very popular in Germany, traditional roast goose is not only served for forthcoming Christmas celebrations, but also in honor of St. Martin's Day on November 11th (though you can find it nearly everywhere on menus far and wide for the entire month). Given the ready access to and large popularity of the dish, you can often find it served for about 12 Euros (depending on the restaurant) with traditional side dishes of knödel (large dumplings that slightly resemble Matzoh balls) and red cabbage (often mixed with diced pieces of locally grown apples). It's a wonderfully rich and filling way to begin the culinary part of the winter holiday season, and helps to jumpstart getting in the mood for Christmas.

Try 'Labskaus' Hamburgs...
Try 'Labskaus' Hamburgs national dish. It looks not really like something that can be eaten, but made by a cook who knows what he's doing, it's delicious!
