The Pretzel is Convincing me to Move to Germany

My mom and I decided to walk around the village this morning and early afternoon. Obviously our trip included lunch. There are a myriad of cute (often overpriced) restaurants in that neighborhood, so I often find myself in a pickle. I want to find the best bang for my buck making sure to not sacrifice flavor for price.

So I woke up early today to do my homework meaning, looking for a place to eat. I first performed a google search: “good restaurants in the village nyc,” however, I was not satisfied with any results. Now onto plan b which proved to be very successful – Menupages. I came across a German café called Landbrot which caught my eye. At this point, I had been on the internet for a good 30 minutes and was growing impatient, so I stopped my research and concluded this just had to be the place.

I was very happy with my choice. Landbrot had a very nice, well-lit, welcoming atmosphere. Best of all, the food was delicious! I started with a sesame seed pretzel which was so much better than the pretzels sold on the street. The pretzel was warmed and served with butter on the side. Let’s just say I was already smiling.

I then ordered a sandwich with black forest ham, smoked gouda, pear, and mustard on grain bread. The sandwich was absolutely delicious, and it came with a side of German potato salad, mixed greens, and cornichons (the only type of pickle I like).

I was plenty satisfied, but my mom convinced me to order a Berliner which is a German jelly doughnut. Ok, I guess “convince” is a strong word. How can I say “no” to dessert? The doughnut was very delicious and the strawberry jelly inside was delightful. My one complaint is I wish there was more of it – I hate biting into a jelly doughnut and getting no jelly whatsoever.

But I must say, this meal makes me want to move to Germany, especially the delicious pretzel!
