This crowd favorite had some big menu changes in 2011 – and came out a winner! Many of the items from last year are back for 2012, and there are a couple of nice additions that I loved. Let’s take a look!
With the popularity of Mexico’s La Cava del Tequila, we’re seeing the first introduction of tequila shots at the Food and Wine Festival (score!).
And while the Tequila Flight, featuring Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo Tequilas is a bit pricey, it’s a great presentation and a fun way to compare different tequilas alongside terrific eats! This was a winner for me!
I absolutely loved the ribeye taco last year, and this year’s Taco de Filete, featuring beef tenderloin and a medium-spicy Cascabel Pepper Sauce does not disappoint. The wilted scallion provides a nice punch of color and taste as well.
The Crispy Shrimp Taco, back again from La Hacienda de San Angel restaurant, was a clear winner in 2011. It continues to impress this year with that punch of color and mix of textures!
The Natilla de Cajeta is a lovely, rich flan made with cajeta, a Mexican delicacy similar to (but oh-so-much yummier than) sweetened condensed milk. This is a big portion comparatively, too, so it’s a good one to share.

A stop on the Festival trail at the Germany Booth is always a must-do! And getting to visit during Oktoberfest? Double points. The lines can be long here, though, so go early!
In 2012, we welcome a new version of an old favorite: Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll. Add a little bit of mustard, and you have a fun “hot dog-esque” item. I enjoyed this offering, but the pretzel roll felt a bit stale to me.
New to the Germany Marketplace this year is the Schinken Nudel, a pasta gratin made with ham and cheese. This is a twist on the ham and cheese spaetzel that’s been served in the past.
The construction of this layered dish is a bit like a casserole or a lasagna. It comes to you in a solid square — kind of weird, but easy to eat! The strong, sharp cheese flavor fits a grown-up palate, but the kids should like this, too, given its mac-and-cheese texture.
The always-popular Apple Strudel is once again accompanied by a Werther’s Original Karamel-Vanilla Sauce. Love it? Find the recipe here!
The flaky pastry and multiple flavors of vanilla, caramel, and apple make this a huge winner for me.
