Cologne/ Koln: assistance appreciated

Recommended Posts

Would appreciate assistance with restaurants from the simple or local places, to the area specialty foods, or the very best in the area. Thank you in advance.

The best:

- Restaurant Vendôme in Bergisch-Gladbach (about 20mins from Cologne), modern three star with Germany's best chef these days, Joachim Wissler. Outstanding! A review from Nov is up on my blog.

- Restaurant Dieter Müller, also in Bergisch-Gladbach, where Nils Henkel is gradually modernizing Dieter Müller's cuisine. Solid three star. Excellent!

- Le Moissonier in Cologne. Frnch bistro style, very unique and interesting cuisine where a dish is served with many elements all having a certain function. Clever and good price/value, two star.

Local places: check out the traditional Kölsch (the local beer) breweries which serve rustic and local specialties - Früh in the city centre would be an example.

I know you are asking about restaurants - but while in Cologne - you need to visit the fabulous patisseries/chocolate shops of eG's on Schneich. They are called Tortschen-torstchen - I believe he has three now. Here is a link to his website

Thank you very much. They have three, plus one in Dusseldorf.

If anyone tries to look this up, I suggest the spelling "Törtchen Törtchen".

Goulash (and only goulash) and Koelsch (no better combination on a cold day): Puszta Huette, just off Neumarkt.

Flammekuchen and Koelsch, sat outside overlooking the Rhine (nothing better on a hot summers evening): StaeV

A Brauhaus outside the centre (good food, good and friendly service): Brauhaus Goldener Pflug - easily reachable by tram line 1 (stop: Merheim).

A Brauhaus in the Altstadt (serves Paeffgen Koelsch for those who like a slightly stronger taste): Brauhaus en d'r Salzgass

On my last trip to Koln, we really enjoyed Weinhaus Brungs. It was Carnival and that might have added to the fun but the food was good and the wait staff was somewhat like watching a British sitcom.

Here's the link . . . http://www.gasthaus-brungs.de/

Try Peters Brauhaus (in the Altstadt) - which is a traditional "tavern". Good Kolsch and seemed to have all the staples of cuisine from this part of Germany on the menu. We enjoyed it.
