Scarlett and I took a train to London in order to explore the more quirky foods that Soho had to offer, we were recommended to try out the menu at Herman ze German, something that we both were excited for.
We arrived in the typically busy Soho, to where we navigated ourselves to the restaurant which was a short walk from the Tube station (Tube Stations that are close are – Charing Cross/Embankment/Covent Garden).
After not stepping foot in London for around a month I realised I had missed it and was looking forward to our day out exploring the huge shops, scenery and most importantly the diverse restaurants and what they have to offer.
When walking into the restaurant we both got the instant hit of the spices and amazing smell of food which definitely got the taste-buds working over time. The menu was simple, however it had all you could want from a German food based restaurant. That being Schnitzels, Bratwurst and Pommes Frites, all served up in a variety of ways, from Hot-Dogs to Burgers.
The drinks (Fritz kola in my case from Hamburg) were of vast variety however, they were different, however so tasty and refreshing, I wanted another straight after finishing my first in about 5 minutes. They were good! the selection of flavours were anything from orange to cola and so on – there must have been 10 different flavours, all served lovely and chilled.
After we had ordered our food and sat down we both started looking more in depth to what made up the restaurant, it displayed images of previous visitors and unique pictures from Germany for an authentic look. The seating arrangement was spacious and clean, simple you could say but it worked well. I feel that Herman ze German had created a decent set up which wasn’t too cluttered or busy and at the same time not lacking character.
The chefs and waiters promptly delivered our food, something we had both been excited for. It was as you would expect from German styled food, the food was Chilli Bratwurst, Chicken Schnitzel, Fried Onions, Bockwurst and Chips – flavours which I don’t think I could recreate at home.
The Herman ze German experience is one I would definitely like to experience again, the food was filling and tasty, without being sickly in anyway. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the food was presented and the quality of it.
