Going To Market For Lunch…

In this archive post about our travels to Legoland Germany, it’s time to review the food available in the park and if it’s possible to keep our fussy offspring happy.

Although the results were mixed as far as the food is concerned, none of us could fail to be impressed by the continuation of the Lego themed decor inside.

The restaurant / café is “signposted” with not only a large Lego chef figure by the door but also four smaller extra ones around the sign above. We are smiling already.

Yet again many of the figures inside are mechanical, which is excellent amusement for your children whilst they wait for you to finish your meal, but less amusing when trying to get your excited Little Mr to stand still and  focus on making a choise of what he wanted to eat.

My persistance and his hunger eventually helped to beat the distractions and we settled in to eat lunch. I’d ordered Schweinshaxe and although it was edible it was a poor imitation of what this amazing dish usually is.

Little Mr was delighted to find spaetzle on the menu here, especially since there was nothing else that took his fancy (too many things with sauce, mixed veggies etc.

Kiwi Daughter settled also struggled to find something she fancied and settled on a sort of hash browns (that weren’t particulatly brown) a desert and fries.

The desert that Kiwi Daughter chose looked like it had a chocolate componant on the top but ti was something completely differnent once you dug down into it, and whatever Kiwi Daughter assumed she was expecting, she was disappointed.

It’s the down side of trying new cusine in a different country, it doesn’t always work out as you expect it too, but I praised her for having a go and assured her that dessert at the hotel in the evening would make up for things. By the same token it might have been the hit of the holiday, so at least she tried it to find out.

Himself prefers to eat a very large breakfast and skip lunch on days out like this, saving  his appitite instead for a hearty meal at the end of the day and a good beer to wash it down with. The coffees were all his.

There was a corner for lego building for smaller kids and since no small kids were using it, Little Mr got his fidget fix building “something nice for the little kids to find later” whilst I finished my lunch.

Hmm, it’s a theme park lunch, made for the masses and it tastes like it. Probably enough said. It filled a gap.
