Scampi!

This culinary treat happens once every year around the same time, so if you find yourself in the Sindelfingen area and want to try multiple European foods this is the place for you.  The festival is usually a four day affair from Thursday to Friday, and sometime in June.  It’s located near the Stern Center which is also the best place to park if you’re unfamiliar with the area.

This was our second time to this street festival and it was just as great as the first time around. We went once Friday evening and again on Saturday afternoon.  There is simply too much food to try. Along the way are several band stages with entertainment program throughout the day. 

Our personal favorites are:

- Grilled fish / calamari

- Indian

- more grilled fish

- grilled meat sandwich

- fruit punch bar – with and/or without alcohol

Other food spotted at the festival:

- Candy stands

- Chocolate covered fruit

- Croatian specialties

- German bakeries

- German beer (obviously)

- Hungarian specialties

- more grilled fish

- Swiss specialties (mostly cheese related)

- Swabian specialties ( Spaetzle and Flammkuchen)

- Spanish paella

- Thai

- Turkish Doners

This one's nearly done - The line was 30 people long
. .

I know I’m forgetting about several stands with other food. Let’s just say you will not starve. If you see a long line it’s a good sign that they have something good. Come back later or get in line.

Along the way you can enjoy the various “Fachwerk” houses of the area. You know, those wood framed houses, typical for old Germany.

Anyways, we came, we ate, we enjoyed. Too bad one of us has to drive otherwise we could stay here all day and then wobble home. ;)
