Magdeburg eatery recommendations
« on: 28.05.2012, 15:28:09 »

I don't think I had a single genuinely good meal last year while at Eurofurence (not counting visits to this fun ice cream bar not far from the hotel). This year I'd like to remedy this by tracking down a few good and interesting eateries in advance.

So, anyone have any recommendations?

There was such a poll last year, not sure why it has been closed though. -> https://forum.eurofurence.org/index.php/topic,3290.0.html

Well, atleast I can recomment you the small café near Kaufland with every morning a very cheap breakfast! (fresh out the oven-bread!!!)

If I may be as rude, as to push another question into the thread; Is there anything inherently bad about the food at the hotel? In regards to the quality.

Not at all, the food at the hotel is really great and worth its price (try the burger!) However, if you are on a rather tight budget, prefer a different style of cooking, or just need to get away from it all for an hour or so, there are plenty restaurants in the direct vicinity. I enjoyed the Italian ("La Piazza", if Google Maps is right) next to the fountain very much.

Oh? Do you know what it was called?

I didn't eat there much. I think the breakast buffet was okay-ish, but expensive. The burgers they were selling in the middle of the lobby were pretty bad though (big and dry, without much in the way of condiments, veggies, or fries), and the opening day barbecue looked pretty underwhelming (but I didn't actually try any of it).

Hmmmmm........ the name of the place near Kaufland? That's a good question, never looked at the name though.... but it's very near KL so you can't miss it. I've seen more furs eating their breakfast so maybe another fur knows the name?

Any places that offers German food? Or is it all burgers and Italian?

Strange as it may sound, finding decent German food at a reasonable price in larger cities in Germany actually tends to ocasionally pose a challenge even for natives. ;3
One website which I found to be useful on occasion (although I haven't yet tried its Magdeburg version) is prinz.de, with the major downside of it being that it is only available in German.

Two places I found worth noting, the Currywurst stand in the station was absolutely amazing... will be waiting all year to get more of that delicious noms! Secondly, if you do venture down to the steak house (out the hotel, turn right and along the road). Be prepared for a long wait, we had to wait ages for food and it really wan't worth waiting so long for.

To be fair, that steak house gets a lot of mixed reviews. Myself I've been there 5-6 times now over the last years, and never had to wait long, nor was disappointed by the food itself. Quite the contrary. We usually buggered 'em with 6-10 people as well. I have heard other opinions similar to yours, though. In the end, as the food isn't expensive there to start with, I'd suggest giving them a try yourself.

If you are planning to give a close-by restaurant a visit as a group, it is a very good idea to give them a call some time ahead and reserve enough seats for all of the participants. It's likely you're not the only one with the glorious idea of grabbing a bite, and they won't be as surprised by the onslaught, which might help waiting times, too. Ordering in advance would be even better, of course.  ;D
