My word!  You've never seen one?

I've just got to know what a Quonset hut is Daniel.

We did 2 Alaskan cruises, & Royal Caribbean had wonderful food, not over-cooked, but lousy coffee. Celebrity had really good coffee, but most of the food was not so great, & portions ranged from large to microscopic form meal to meal.....we just never knew.

Our table mates were mostly from the US & I was amazed at how many shoved the vegetables aside, no matter how well cooked & tasty, only ate the ''meat & potatoes'', pigged out on dessert, & asked for seconds, men & women alike.

Randy, what a disappointment in the food department. 

Comment by sk8eycat on April 25, 2015 at 11:48am

Randall...I thought those river cruise ships were supposed to feature local specialties of whatever region they were sailing through.  That's what their glossy brochures say, anyway.  Whatta bummer. 

(Of course, I have also heard that the cruise ships themselves are not always as advertized.  A friend went on a French river trip that had been arranged as a group tour by a single travel agency , and she said the boat smelled like it had previously been a garbage scow, and the "staterooms" were tiny. The water was rationed. She wouldn't talk about the food; she just made a face.  Of course that was more than 20 years ago....)

There used to be a "famous" hoffbrau haus-type restaurant in Los Angeles, and the food was pretty much like what you've described....  Maybe that IS "local" German-style cooking.  Gah!

Randall, did you have any spätzle? They're one of my favorite foods in the world.

Cruise ship food (on the Danube) is pretty much "Americanized", catering to the tastes of old people. Lots of "meat and potatoes", breads and rich desserts. I mean, it was really good, but not exactly foods of the region. Vegetables were sparse and over cooked.

On the last day, we ate at the famous Hofbrau House in Munich. We had bread for "appetizers". Then nothing but a slab of overcooked pork and a blob of potato something or other--very gluelike. It was awful. The beer was the only saving grace.

You've got lots of stamina, Daniel, to attack such a big project when you're not feeling well! My hat off to you!

Daniel - there's another Chucks on Hwy. 99 in Hazel Dell.
