Frankfurt Restaurants

Many international cuisines are represented in the financial hub of Europe. For vegetarians there's usually at least one meatless dish on a German menu, and substantial salads are popular, too (though often served with speck, or bacon). The city's most famous contribution to the world's diet is the Frankfurter Würstchen—a thin smoked pork sausage—served with bread and mustard, but not with sauerkraut like the American hot dog also called a frankfurter. Grüne Sosse is a thin cream sauce of herbs served with potatoes and hard-boiled eggs. The oddly named Handkäs mit Musik (literally, "hand cheese with music") consists of slices of cheese covered with raw onions, oil, and vinegar, served with dark bread and butter (an acquired taste for many). There is the Rippchen, or cured pork chop, served on a mound of sauerkraut, and the Schlachtplatte, an assortment of sausages and smoked meats. All are served with Frankfurt's distinctive hard cider drink, Apfelwein, by the glass or ceramic pitcher.

Smoking is prohibited inside Frankfurt's bars and restaurants, but allowed in most beer gardens.
