A clich?, but really german is to try german beer in large beerpuls and eat juicy bratwurst (German sausage) or try typically german sauerkraut (sauer cole with sausage on bread).

Well my limited German suggested half a chicken - not in Cologne - its cheese with black rye bread, very tasty too.....
As in other places around this area, they mark up your bill simply by making bars on a beermat. At the end, they add that up and mutiply by the price of a beer. Simple.
