Happy 2012!! I know I've been away, I'm on a visit back home for the holidays. And I'm having the absolute best time, this year has been amazing so far. I finally managed to get some time in to do this post, which has been pending since forever. Back when I was still in the UK, I went over to the German Christmas Market in Birmingham, after hearing a lot about the food there. Frankfurts make me happy :) After getting some shopping done at my paradise, the Bullring, we went over to the Market.
It was so so much fun. I had the best food and beer there, even though I'm not a fan of beer. It wasn't a very big thing, but the stalls that were there, were absolutely amazing.
The steakhouse, that had one of the best beef burgers I've ever eaten. It was moist, juicy, and their homemade sauces just took it to a whole other level.
So many different types of frankfurts, supersized :)
And ofcourse I had to try out the desserts. These crepes were fantastic, rivalling what I'd eaten in the streets of Paris. They had a ton of options.
I had the Nutella Marshmallow one - messy food is always more fun - and the Bailey's one, because I just had to try one of the tipsy ones :) The Nutella Marshmallow was delicious, but it's the one with Bailey's that hit it out the park, it was so good, and completely a new taste for me, I hadn't seen crepes with any alcohol before this.
A line up of all my favorite men. After the Bailey's I wanted to try every other version too. :)
So many options here too. Can you tell that I absolutely loved this stand?
This stall was all about the nuts. In every flavor imaginable!
There were a ton of other stalls, for German chocolate, some great tasting fudge that I pigged out on for an entire week, for various crafty things and for some great popovers, that I didn't get a chance to try. I didn't manage to click too many pictures of it though unfortunately, we were tired after a long day of shopping, holding a ton of bags, and just too exhausted. But on the whole, the Market was absolutely amazing, and if it weren't for the damn exams, I'd have easily spent a whole day there, gaining tons of weight :)
With that thought, Happy New Year again!! This year, I've resolved to not make any weight loss resolutions :D
