When dining in Hamburg restaurants, the local cuisine is strongly influenced by its northerly location, where the food tends to be meaty or fish-based, very rich and featuring many root vegetables. But those not keen on German cuisine will find plenty of other international choices. For those craving traditional German cuisine with a contemporary touch, a must-visit is the Landhaus Scherrer. Once a brewery, the Landhaus is now a citadel of gastronomy on the Elbe at Altona. It has gained a reputation for impeccable service and imaginatively prepared cuisine. The chef's inventive cookery combines northern German and international flavors with stunning results. A special dish for two is crispy whole north German duck with seasoned vegetables and au gratin potatoes. An unusual variation might be roast goose with rhubarb in cassis sauce.
For sinfully tasty and tantalizing food, check out Tarantella. Fashionistas, models, and the media elite flock to this restaurant in the Casino Esplanade. The open-to-view kitchen hides no secrets of the chefs as they concoct such plates as lobsters plucked from a tank or crispy suckling pig with creamy sauerkraut.
Fusion, located inside Hamburg's Seaside Hotel, is truly a fascinating place to check out. As the name suggests, the food on offer is a fantastic blend of different cultures from around the globe -- Asian dishes meet European cuisine that is combined with South American delights. A journalist once even compared the dishes to Picasso's paintings. The cocktail selection is as diverse as the food: from fruity banana cocktails to exotic lychee creations, this restaurant/bar will definitely leave an impression. Whether you go for traditional German or international cuisines, these German restaurants will leave you begging for more.
