I love potatoes so you can imagine how delighted I was on our recent trip to Germany to learn that one of the villages we visited had a restaurant in Rothenberg ob der Tauber that had nothing but potatoes on the menu. I know what your thinking. That is was just a potato bar or a mashed potato bar, but it wasn't! Everything on the menu was a unique potato dish so we decided to order different dishes to that we could taste different things. Here are just a few examples from the menu of Roedertor.
A Diner and His Potato
1) Potato Pizza. Just imagine a delicious thin crust with cheese, onions, tomatoes and cubed potatoes.
2) Cordon Blue Sandwich. This was INCREDIBLE! The "bread" was actually mashed potatoes and in between the two layers of potatoes were the cheese and ham. It looked as if the potatoes were put in both sides of an omelet pan and topped with cheese and ham. Then toasted to a golden brown. YUM!
3) Potatoes and salmon. Okay, can't complain about smoked salmon and crispy hash browns with sour cream and capers. It didn't have an amazing presentation but it was yummy.
4) Potato spinach souffle. On the menu there was a long list of souffle options but we selected the spinach and it was delicious.
The menu was so creative and it made me think about hosting a potato party. BTW-have you ever had Potato Candy? It's one of my childhood favorites!
I didn't take food pictures (my pictures of food are generally unappetizing), but I did take some pictures in the restaurant. Not only is the food great, it's adorable inside the restaurant.
Well, I'm off to make some hash browns!
