A Taste of Deutschland

Just another Geschmacks site

About the Author


Schnitzel.  Spätzle.  Sausages.  These are some of the things people typically think of when it comes to German cuisine.  But this wonderful country has so much more to offer!  If you are a tourist visiting Deutschland, you won’t be stuck having to eat the same type of Wurst every single day or visiting the local McDonald’s or Subway for something familiar to eat.  No! Germany offers a wide variety of different types of cuisine that will surely satisfy your cravings and appetite. 

I am a student and aspiring cook from California, currently studying abroad in Heidelberg, Germany.  I have a keen interest in sampling dishes from different cuisines from around the globe in order to further develop my palette and appreciation for food.  

I created this blog as a means of sharing my culinary experiences in the various restaurants found in Deutschland.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi,

    My name is John Edmonds. I love your reviews and photos and would love to make them available to a wider audience. I am starting an entertainment, events and nightlife website for Americans living in the Rhineland-Pfalz area, including Mannheim and Heidelberg. It’s a hobby of mine, I suppose much like your blog.

    I have written several travel guides for the area which you can view at http://www.scribd.com/buzzoffbase. I would love to include your work in my guides and on my website. Since you have a love for food, perhaps you would like to review restaurants in more cities around Rhineland-Pfalz and sharing them with my audience?

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi John,

    First, I would like to apologize for my late response. I have been so busy lately with other projects. I have taken a look at your travel guides and I must say that I am enormously impressed with your work. It would be an honor to have my work included in your guides and your website.

    I would review more restaurants in the surrounding Rhineland-Pfalz, however I will be extremely busy over the next few weeks. My semester at the university is wrapping up and, sadly, I will be leaving Germany at the end of July. Thus, my ability to travel outside of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region is severely hampered by time constraints.

  3. Hey there. Amazing website you have here! I’ve been planning on putting up a “best places to eat in HD” sometime on our site too, but I’ve been a bit lazy.


    You have an AMAZING website. Love it so much! A goal of mine is to eat in as many HD restaurants as well. Hehe. Then cook the food myself. :p

  4. Hi David,

    I truly appreciate your comments.. they keep me motivated to keep working on this site. I have visited your ‘PhooD’ journal and it is marvelous! The photos are of such high quality, they are definitely professional looking! I also love the recipes!

    By the way, I noticed you are from the Philippines – have you found any Filipino restaurants in the area? I am from Los Angeles, so we have our fair share of Filipino places. I truly miss Lechón kawali, lumpia, and adobo, as well as baked goods like ensaymada and Ube buns.

    Best wishes,
