A great many restaurants recommend their own menu with original Thüringer specialities. Of course it's always a gamble what the quality will be (although in Germany generally, the quality of food and drink is excellent). Here at the Thüringer Hof in Leipzig we had a great meal, timely served.
Favorite Dish: I had the "Luther dish" (Luthergerichte) with "Eisbein" (pig's knee), Thüringer Klösse, sauerkraut and horseradish sauce. It was delicious and way too much.
My friend had an excellent, succulent lamb dish.
As a starter we had some nice smoked salmon with salad (good olive oil!) and rösti, for dessert coffee and cakes.
My Luther dish was a mere € 11.90.
Founded in 1838 by the Thuringia barman Friedrich Pietzsch. Completely destroyed in World War II, rebuilt in 1996. Today the Thüringer Hof offers Thuringian and Saxon specialities.
