After the walking tour, we were all pretty hungry so I suggested going to Leib & Seele – a German restaurant near to Hauptwache that I’d been to once before.
You can find it behind Sports Arena in town, so it’s pretty easy to get to. Despite this, it’s never really a go-to place, and I think it should be!
The menu is pretty varied – last time I was here I shared a fish platter with my friend. This time I had the shrimp schnitzel, which is (believe it or not) my first schnitzel since moving to Germany a year ago. I was imagining the shrimps to come on top of the meat, with some sauce maybe and some salad. But, as I always fear, it was a big plate of stodge… of well! This IS Germany! The shrimp was inside the meat. My friend had the baked potato which looked lovely. They also have various other things like chili con carne, meat dishes and other German favourites.
They had my favourite beer, as well – fruit Schofferhofer. This time I went for the prickly pear.
I am all for campaigning for this to be the new go-to German restaurant. It’s mostly outside seating so it’s awesome in the summer, the staff are pretty good, the food is great, and the prices aren’t that bad. What more could you want from a German place?!
“My city. My beer: Binding” – given the number of expats here, is Frankfurt really anybody’s city?!
You can find Leib and Seele at Kornmarkt 11 60311 Frankfurt, behind Sports Arena.
