A small little town between Frankfurt and Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg has a small downtown and a Palace. And a nice place to eat in the Ratskellar.
The cuisine is close to typical Bavarian, but here it is Swabian style. It contains a lot of egg noodle dishes, consisting a lot of Spaetzle and noodle sheets wrapped around meat. Which are commonly known as Maultaschen, and also known as Swabian Ravioli.
Of course I had to try it all. At the Ratskellar they have a dish that features all of the specialties.
Of course, I got this.
The Pork was nice and tender, the Spaetzle as filling as ever. And the Maultaschen was quite interesting. A lot of minced meat inside pasta rolls. Quite good. Not as heavy as I thought it would be.
There are other items, the specialty of Schnitzel.
And a huge Chicken Salad!
Good and typical German fare. I did find out what Swabian food is though!
