If you are on the hunt for some traditional home cooked German food in Cologne, be sure to check out Gaststaette Bei Oma Kleinmann. Roughly translated as “Aunt Kleinmann’s Diner”, Bei Oma Kleinmann features a menu of home crafted recipes from the legendary local cook herself. Although she doesn’t work in the kitchen anymore, during Carnival every year she arrives to a packed restaurant of raving fans that kneel and bow in respect. Crazy? Wait till you try out the oversized Schnitzel that is so large it can’t fit on your plate. Although traditionally an Austrian dish, the Oma schnitzel here is especially local due to Oma’s special mushroom sauce.
Another recommended dish is the Kassler mit Sauerkraut und Kartoffel puree. The Kassler or salted smoked pork is so tender and perfectly complements the Sauerkraut and potatoes very well.
Wash down your food with a few glasses of KÃ¶lsch, the local beer here in Cologne. Either way you look at it, a dinner at Gaststaette Bei Oma Kleinmann is your best bet to having a true German experience. See you at the bar!
