  • We had time to find our own place to eat, and Damon and another friend and I ended up in a nice little cafe outside of the busiest area of town, where we enjoyed Saumagen, pizza, and Toast Hawaii, respectively.

  • Damon's dad was with cane as he'd recently twisted his knee, but we still managed to drink our way through half of the vineyard trails, including a stop for the same Saumagen we enjoyed last year.

    Life is back to normal!

  • Currently Google's early prototype can only translate German to English; so where it will save the unsuspecting tourist in Bavaria from a slice of gefullter Saumagen (stuffed sow's stomach) the green-faced vegetarian in Paris will be left prodding his plate of pied de cochon (pig's trotters).

  • It isn't called the "chancellor line" because it runs under the city center - it's called the "chancellor's line" because Helmut Kohl wanted it to be built, presumably so he could get his Saumagen sent directly to the Kanzleramt from the Adlon kitchens (at least that was one theory at the time).

  • Sau would also suggest a sow's stomach.
    I suppose the sow's babies get made into trotters, and other suckling delicacies.

  • This example seems to suggest it's specifically a sow's stomach:

  • A fine German dish; sort of a pig haggis.
    From the examples: "Saumagen is the stomach of a pig filled with chopped up bits of the pig that won't go into any decent meal, plus some spices and onions." What if one doesn't care for spices and onions?
