Reibekuchen – also known as Kartoffelpuffer – is one of the most common
breakfast entrées in Germany. Made of delectable German potato fritters, every
bite of this potato pancake can bring you a taste of what breakfast in Germany is
like. You can find this food in the street stalls that is located in the famous
Cologne railway station.
Best served with a savory seasoning sauce or apple sauce if you’re feeling a
sweeter breakfast and some pumpernickel bread. Reibekuchen is a dish worth
giving a try.
