It was a last chance to eat pork knuckle before leaving Dusseldorf. So I found a place near my hotel, and sat nicely outside and enjoyed the warm afternoon over a glass of unfiltered beer and one schnaps. Pork knuckle arrived. Part of the meat...More

Zum Schiffchen has been serving Schweinhaxe and Altbier for more than 300 years and they have it figured out. Being late in the lunch service, the waiter offered us a bigger, more comfortable table. The Rindertatar (steak tartare) is a good-sized serve of quality beef...More
