    The Swabian kitchen is well known for their Maultaschen (German Ravioli?) and Spätzle (Nooddle or Maccheroni?). You know already, the national food of the Swabians, Alemannen and Bajuwaren, which may be missing in all of Swabia in no kitchen. Genuine Gourmets says, who had her once on the fork, comes never again of it loosely.
    Since Swabians a poor country was always, the inhabitants had to be content with that, which there was. But emergency makes as well known inventive - a circumstance to which we now tasty foods owe.

    Spätzle, also known as Nockerl are little dumplings. They’re often served like pasta, as a side dish to accompany saucy dishes.
    Maultaschen resemble giant ravioli with a filling traditionally made of minced meat, spinach, bread crumbs and onions and flavored with various spices.

    Favorite Dish: Gaisburger Marsch - Linsen mit Spätzle und Saitenwürschtle - Maultaschen in Steinpilzrahmsauce
    Zwei-Gang-Menü mit Vorspeise less than €15. read more

    Neckarmüller Gasthausbrauerei: Brewery

    The brewery from the bridge

    This is a nice brewery with a great view of the river and a biergarten/beer garden. The beer garden is self service. You go up and order and pick up your food. You take your dishes up to the table also when you are finished. You can sit inside or out on the deck and get waited on also. Only downfall is they only had 3 types of beers to choose from. I had the wheat. There was wheat, radler (lemon infused) and a keller beer.

    Favorite Dish: I haven't eaten dinner there yet. We had a plate of beer cheese w/ onions and bread. A good snack to go with beer for sure!

    Stuttgarter Staeffele: The Complete Swabian Experience

    by tericee Updated Apr 4, 2011
    The Wine Cellar dining room
    4 more images

    Their menu, which is written on parchment, offers almost every Swabian delicacy you could ever want. From swabian onion soup (served in an actual onion!) to maultaschen (swabian raviolis) to Kässpätzle (swabian pasta and cheese), and every meat dish you can imagine, it's all there! And it's all good.

    Favorite Dish: I like the onion soup served in an onion. It not only tastes good, but it's the reason I noticed this restaurant. I could smell their great food as I walked past their "wine alcove" during the Stuttgart Wine Village. This caught my attention, which was when I noticed the onion soup being served in an onion. Since I didn't have time to sit down right then and there, I decided to find their restaurant and try it as soon as I could. I'm so glad I did!

    Hondler Vaihingen: Super Food and Inexpensive

    by seoulgirl Updated May 9, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant makes you feel like you are sitting in someones house. And the food is wonderful as is the service. The daily specials are 4.90€ and are served all day as long as they don't run out. You get a salad, meat and starch.

    Favorite Dish: I had the steak with the onion topping which is no. 25 on the menu, wonderful. The onions are caramalized and the steak tender and caramalized on the edges. Served with loads of pan fried golden potatoes. We had a special once that was a piece of tender roast beef with horseradish gravy, excellent. Plus the sauerbraten special on the weekend is excellent!

    This is a fun place to go. It is family run, husband cooks and wife is the waitstaff. They are hippie types with a farm. You will most likely be eating there own pork, butchered by them recently. They have a nice outdoor garden which is surrounded by their farm and a walking path behind. They also have a nice assortment of vegetarian dishes.

    Favorite Dish: My friend had some tofu cakes that were a special one day and we were all jealous. The jagreschnitzel is excellent. Everything is very good.

    Schnitzelhaus Post: The biggest and best Schnitzel in Stuttgart!

    If you want the local German experience, complete with a giant schnitzel, visit Schnitzelhaus Post. The proprietors are friendly - and will even share in a round of schnaps shots every once in a while. My friends and watched a couple of world cup games here and had a great time!

    Favorite Dish: The kinderschnitzel is best, as my friend Ian tells it, because it's only the size of one frisbee instead of two... but if you want a more Swabian dish, the Maultaschen is also great!

    Swabian Food: A Great Place to Eat

    by Beograd Written Sep 25, 2005

    Beer sharing

    The food in the beer tents is of very good quality and not to mention quantity. Most of the food, if not all, is fully natural without any bio modified additives that are so prevelent in the world these days. It is a point of pride for the Germans to use only naturaly raised and fed food stuffs.

    So, my suggestion would be to come to Wasn hungry (the thirs will follow!) and forget about calories! here are too many of those to be counted in their food but it's fantastic!!!! Just take a look at portions on our plates! Though they match the beer stiens :)

    Hans im Gl��ck

    It was nice to sit on the square and watch the people pass by. It was a nice summers evening and so the many tables of the numerous bars and restaurants were filled with people. It had a lively atmosphere and I could sit there for ages.

    In the middle of the square like place there is the fountain of "Hans im Glück".

    Favorite Dish: I had Käsespätzle of course, a very typical swabian dish. Spätzle are traditional self made noddles. And these come with melted cheese. The side salad also has been really tasty.

    Despite the good food, the beer also has been very delicious. They serve the Bavarian "Löwenbräu" brand here. I tried the dark beer and it was very delicious, so that I had three huge ones :)

    The traditional Food

    by keeweechic Updated Nov 20, 2002

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The traditional food of the Stuttgart region relies on beef, sausage and root vegetables in good wholesome dishes. The 'national dish' is 'gaisburger marsch', a stew of diced beef, potatoes, vegetables, fried onions and spätzle. Spätzle is a Swabian 'staple'; a flour and egg dough dropped in boiling water that forms itself into noodles. Served as an accompaniment to many dishes or on its own, in' kässpätzle' (noodles in cheese), as a main course. Other local dishes include 'schwäbischer rostbraten' (slices of roast beef served with fried onions, sauerkraut, maultaschen and spätzle), 'maultaschen' (small pasta squares filled with meat, spinach, eggs, onion and parsley, served with potato salad) and Wein zwiebelkuchen (onion tart with sour cream and diced bacon), which is eaten in the autumn with a glass of new wine. I had lunch at a restaurant somewhere in the photo shown where a number of restaurants and boutiques are. There were other great restaurants I was taken to in the other areas I have talked about (including Italian and Greek) but I can't remember them.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favourite restaurant is at home. Don´t wanna come to my place? No problem, there are a variety of traditional restaurants around town. Actually there is one at every corner. I can recommend you to visit the summerfest where you can get all delicacies at ago.

    If anything, you have to täste the dishes which make Stuttgart!!!!

    Favorite Dish: 1)Schwäbischer Rostbraten: slices of roast beef with lots of fried onions, usually served with 'Sauerkraut', 'Maultaschen' and ' Spätzle' (Swabian noodles).

    2)Maultaschen
    Small pasta squares filled with sausages meat, ground meat, spinach, eggs, onion, parsley and seasoning.

    All dishes are best with a glas of Stuttgart wine

    B��rse

    There is some very nice Swabian Food that is served in many restaurants and pubs in Stuttgart.
    Very typical German food.

    Swabia (German: Schwaben) is the area of Germany where Stuttgart is located!

    Favorite Dish: 'Maultaschen' or 'Käsespätzle'
    Maultaschen are a bit like Tortellini and you get them in different variations. Käsespätzle are egg noodles with cheese and onion.
