[Bitburger Wirthaus, Trier]
The grand Bitburger Wirthaus located in the centre of Kornmarkt overlooks the most beautiful Rococo fountain ‘St George fountain‘, and on this particularly sunny day-it was perfect!
Roy & Liezel [Royzel, leroy] were down for a [too] short visit, so we ventured out to check out the local breakfast.
This place is great for locals and tourists as it provides a menu catering for both! – super!
Roy has taken to virgin marys for breaky, so I had a little taste too… to be honest I’m not a tomato juice fan, but it was pretty good I have to say! I’ve since gone and become a avid tomato-juice-with-pepper-in-the-morning drinker!
I believe it was a sunny saturday midmorning/afternoon, we soaked up the glorious sun [which was quite unusual for this time of month in Germany] and went on our merry way to order some of the yummies for our tummies.
We all had the ‘eyes are bigger than our tummies’ syndrome and ordered a tad too much!…
so heres what we ordered…
Lydel: Apple strudel with ice-cream… YUM!
Ham and onion Flammkuchen…which is basically a light and crispy Pizza type number. The crunchy outside bits are my favourite!!! 🙂
I ordered possibly the largest serving of Smoked salmon and swedish hash browns with a dollop of horseradish sauce. I pretty much shared my salmon with the whole restaurant b/c there was so much. I was worried for the salmon population in Sweden…
Paul ordered a light and fluffy pancakes with a serving of heart attack. OH sorry I mean cream and ice-cream. *giggles*
and lastly and leastly [hehhe] Roy aka Pedro, ordered a salami sandwich. In true German form, the portion was large and filling. The presentation was actually quite lovely – lots of colour and a interesting selection of salady sides.
As per normal German standards, we left feeling like we ate for 4!!! truly so much food, and it was all delicious!.
Service was a bit slow, but there were just soooo many people it was totally understandable.
So this place deserves a big tick!!
* Great outdoor space..TICK!!
* Lovely and sunny…TICK!!
* English menu… TICK!!
* Friendly and good service… TICK!!
* Good coffee…TICK!! [not better than Cafe Lecca, but still pretty good!]
* Delicious fresh food with portions big enough to share amongst 4 people… TICK TICK and TICK!!!
Can’t wait to come over winter where it is all nice and cosy inside watching the snow dance outside… *sigh*
