Aachen - between cathedral and city hall




Nov 2010
The christmas market was already there, as you can see on the picture showing the city hall. We bought some local dish to warm our fingers and bodies (it was already pretty cold). Salty fried sliced potatoes covered with some kind of cooked mashed apple. I have nothing against the food mixing the sweet and salty in one dish, but sweet apple and salty fried potatoes really don't match each other ! At least according to my french taste and also to my chinese wife's taste.
Le marché de noël était déjà en place, comme vous pouvez le voir sur la photo de l'hotel de ville. Nous avons acheté de la nourriture locale pour nous réchauffer (il faisait déjà plutôt froid). Une sorte de beignet de pomme de terre émincées et salées couverte de compote de pomme. Je n'ai rien contre les mets sucrés/salés, mais la compote de pomem de pomme et les beignets salés de pommes de terre ne vont vraiment pas ensemble ! Au moins selon mon goût de français et celui de chinoise de mon épouse.
