“Die Kartoffel”

One of the pleasures of visiting my former home town from time to time is, no doubt, eating and drinking what I cannot get here in the Mid-West. Over the years, “Die Kartoffel” at the east end of the pedestrian mall in Saarbrücken’s downtown area has been a great place for all sorts of potato-based dishes. On Thursday, the day before my departure, I had the “Lyoner und Bratkartoffeln” — what a treat!

    Don’t know if it is a franchise. The restaurant has been around for at least 20 years, though not under that name. The menu has always been potatoes: Reibekuchen, Bratkartoffeln, Dibberlappes etc. – nothing unusual such as potato lasagna. So perhaps the similarity in names is just a coincidence.
