Wilhelminenstrasse Street is the location of one of the main gastronomic landmarks of Darmstadt â€“ the historic Braustuebl brewery. Nowadays, there is one more popular establishment in the brewery building, one of the best restaurants specializing in the regional cuisine in the city. In this restaurant, visitors can not only try unique sorts of beer made in full accordance with the unchanged traditions developed centuries ago but also enjoy the most popular regional food. Despite the everlasting popularity of this restaurant, it remains quite affordable even to budget travelers. A large plate of meat with garnish costs approximately 10 euro.
Besides traditional restaurants, there are many pubs in the city. Needless to say, this is where Darmstadt residents like to relax and have fun in the evening. In addition to popular regional beer and other drinks, local pubs offer many interesting dishes, for example, various sausages, ham, and bacon.
Despite the fact that the regional cuisine mostly features classic German dishes, the serving method of some of them is completely different in Darmstadt. For example, meat is often served together with the green sauce made of spicy herbs. This sauce contains such ingredients as parsley, borage, dock, rhubarb, and different kinds of kale. This sauce is not only a mandatory addition to boiled pork but also a typical addition to all kinds of potato dishes.
