Burger King offer for ADAC members

Burger King in Germany are currently offering members of ADAC a discount of 1 Euro on their “King Menus”.  All you have to do is show your ADAC membership card when ordering.

The offer cannot be combined with other offers, and I do not know if every branch is taking part, or how long the offer is on for.  But with student membership currently starting at 19 Euros per year, if it runs long enough then I am sure that for some, the membership may pay for itself!

Gaudi am Tisch

Gaudi am Tisch is the name of a dish for 4 people at the Brauhaus in Oberursel.

Served in a massive iron frying pan, it contains:

  • Bratkartoffeln (fried potato)
  • Salad
  • Sausages (“Bratwurst” and “Nürnberger Art”)
  • Kassler (smoked and salted pork)
  • Sauerkraut (shredded cabbage)
  • Fleischkäse (meat packed into a loaf and baked)
  • Small Schnitzels (breaded meat)
  • A leg of pork

At the time of writing (March 2010) there is a special offer on Saturdays: Gaudi am Tisch for 4 people includes a 300ml drink for each at 10EUR per person.

Children are welcome…

… as long as they can be seen.

That was the impression left by a visit to one of our favourite service stations on the way from England yesterday.  The sign on the door says “Kinder sind hier gern gesehen”, meaning “children are welcome”, but actually translated as something like “children are gladly seen”.

Anyway, we like this particular stop because they have good value family meals and it is at about the right place to have a break on the 6 hour journey from Calais to Frankfurt.  As usual, we stopped there yesterday and ordered our meal at the warm food counter.  We then let our daughter go to play in the childrens’ area which is located between the food section and the seating.  This was our mistake.

When we came to pay at the cash desk, we were charged the full price for our drinks because the cashier could not see our daughter from her viewpoint.  This all made very little sense, as she was still prepared to charge the food as a family meal, so accepting that we could have the deal on the food but not on the accompanying drinks on the same tray!

Strangely, my offer to go and get our daughter to “prove” to her that she really was with us made her change her mind and she duly removed one of the drinks from the bill.  Perhaps she didn’t want us to hold up the queue anymore?  (Sound familiar?)
