For a Funpark as big as Playmobil, restaurants and eating joints are fun because they’ve integrated it in a playful environment as how the park is. Playmobil food is traditionally German. The Burg café is castle inspired, following it’s name (Burg=castle). You can see Playmobil guards stationed up the walls as they would in real life castles of old. As we were having lunch, we opted for the bigger restaurant which offers a wide selection of food and desserts. It’s lovely with glass roofs and a second floor but we opted to dine below, al fresco.
It was a charming setup of tables in a garden full of flowers and greens. Shutterhappy me was taking photos of the flowers while waiting for the food. There were petunias, cosmos and other flowers I’ve yet to know the names of. Despite having light rains earlier on, the benches and tables were wiped dry and comfy for us to sit on.
Knowing that the kids would be happy to be back playing, hubby bought them what they could easily eat without forcing them. Chicken fingers and fries…to justify, we’ve been eating healthy at our parent-in-laws house. Always with fish and meat, and a serving of veggies so having this for once is okay. teehee! Also, mom-in-law is a great cook, the kids would always have second servings!
Food for the More Experienced
Dad-in-law had Schweinshaxe or roasted ham hock (or “pork knuckle” and called Stelze in Austria) served with potatoes and a special sauce.
Hubby and I had the Turkey Schnitzel with fries, would you believe we shared a plate? The serving is good for two and because I have this habit of eating after the kids are done I’m good with it, most of the time, the kids don’t finish theirs. I’ve always done it like this – to not waste food. I’m glad that condiments as ketchup and mayonnaise are free to take and would not cause an extra 0.20cents each…the kids love dipping their fries in them.
Food for Young Palates
For dessert, son1 had chocolate pudding while dawty had Milchreis. It’s rice cooked slowly in milk making it sticky. It is eaten hot or cold which would remind me of Champorado back home, rice with cocoa powder and sugar – especially when we put Ovaltine on top. Milchreis is served with that, or either chocolate powder, applesauce or a combination of cinnamon and sugar.
That’s son1 with his fries (and unseen chicken fingers) and chocolate pudding , he kept annoying his older sister. That’s annoying C plastered on his face and on the right is the face of an annoyed sister….
