Muenchen on Potatoes

On the recommendation of Laurel Robbins of Monkeys and Mountains, my husband and I indulged in tasty potato dishes at Schwabinger Kartoffelhaus in Munich (Muenchen), Germany — a  restaurant that gives the magnificent potato center stage. With the pleasant company of Laurel and her husband, we chose from a menu where every item featured potatoes.

Our Savory Selections

Laurel's husband and I chose the French casserole which had turkey, fresh vegetables, mushrooms, fried potatoes and sour cream. It was a delicious hearty dish and quite abundant, so I couldn't finish it all.
