Germany doesn’t necessarily grab my attention year after year. The menu hasn’t really changed since 2012 (with the exception of prices), when the Schinkennudeln replaced the Goulash Soup served in 2011.
This year, however, the Apple Strudel has been ousted by a Berliner – a Yeast Donut filled with Apricot Jam.
Since it was a new item, I was game to give it a try, naturally, despite my general feeling towards sweets. Matt wasn’t with me, so I wasn’t able to get his opinion, either. The Berliner is fairly small and light, especially compared to the previous Apple Strudels served. It comes topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
