Proper German food in FRA

Hi,

I was watching Bourdain in his Berlin episode last night, and I’m flying through FRA in a couple of weeks.
Does anyone know if there are any restaurants in the airport that serve the German food he’s eating here:


It looks delicious !

Because Eisbein ist an acquired taste you are unlikely to find it in restaurants at public places that cater to faster dining at airports. The Paulaner in the Squaire above the railway station opposite FRA will have the Bavarian grilled version of Eisbein called Schweinshaxe.

The second thing that Bourdain mentions is called a "Wiener Schnitzel". You can get the real version at Paulaner's mentioned above (made out of veal meat), or the cheaper pork meat variety called a "Schnitzel Wiener Art".

But if you find the time, get out of the airport, take the S8/S9 from the airport to Hauptwache and then take S3/S4/S5/S6 to Lokalbahnhof and walk a few meters to Germania/Kanonesteppel/Feuerrädchen and order a "Frankfurter Schnitzel", which is a Schnitzel Wiener Art with baked potatoes and the Frankfurt green sauce out of seven local herbs. Delicious.

The one and only place for Wiener Schnitzel at FRA is the FCT ((c) every FT trip report).

Edited to add: Wagner Apfelwein in Sachsenhausen has all the pork you need (and then some): http://www.apfelwein-wagner.com/en/menu/menu.html

But even they don't have 'Eisbein'

Frankfurter Spezialitäten


Gegrillte Schweinshaxe mit Bratkartoffeln und Salat
14,80
Gegrilltes Schäufelchen mit Sauerkraut
15,50
Gegrilltes Leiterchen mit Sauerkraut
10,50

I think Eisbein is so 'special' that hardly anyone dares to offer it.

Boiled pork knuckle aka Eisbein is gross. Only East Germans or (at a stretch) Berliners eat that sort of stuff. Grilled pork knuckle on the other hand is lovely.

Boiled or grilled - it‘s crap...

Haha, yes it's delicious there! But I'm also partial to Figlmueller in Vienna (natch), however touristy it might be.

Steigenberger Hotel at FRA has a great German restaurant directly behind the hotel. (Restaurant Unterschweinstiege)

I use to go there all the time with my Air Marshal buddies when they were flying in/out of FRA.

I would also second the Paulaner's at the airport as well.

Also recommend Paulaner across from airport terminal by DB long distance train station or if you have time hours available, take S-bahn to Adolf Wagner at Schweizer Strasse 71, 60594

Wagner is my favourite too. Plus they take Amex (unheard of for most German restaurants of this type!)
