The Worst German Food – Mett

The Worst German Food – Mett

Mr. Faultier has told me that my transformation into a German will be complete when I try Mett for the first time. I’m afraid that I will never become German. Thankfully the Ausländerbehörde doesn’t not require Mett consumption to get a residency permit. For those who don’t know, Mett is raw, minced pork that for some reason people like to consume without cooking. I’m not completely against raw meat. I’ll eat raw fish and rare steak. Heck, I even like…

Never Pay Full Price For Pizza

Never Pay Full Price For Pizza

Mr. Faultier refuses to pay full price for pizza or any other delivery service. This is probably not a surprise for anyone who knows him.

German Barbecue Sauce is Subpar

German Barbecue Sauce is Subpar

Another Lidl America Week has come and gone, and I almost felt like I was becoming desensitized to it, until I saw this new offering. I first saw the Cheese & Onion fish filets and thought, well that’s a bit odd, but then I saw the Barbecue variety. What are these shenanigans? Maybe it’s a regional thing, but I’ve never seen someone pair a breaded fish filet with barbecue sauce before. But it has the Statue of Liberty on it,…
