Germans crave their American burgers

The 5 Foods Germans Crave the Most

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Want to eat like a German? Don’t go reaching for that bratwurst and schnitzel… instead hop in your car and get yourself a nice juicy burger, an order of fries, and don’t forget the Coke.

Much like other parts of American culture, our food has left an impression on the taste buds of many Germans and our cuisine is the go to choice for quite a few in the country according to Dalia Research. Germans want more American restaurant options over any other cuisine, and the classic burger and fries is the driving force behind the trend.

German food loyalists and those thinking this is just another sign that Germany is loosing its culture need not worry too much though. Local cuisine comes in at a close second and is joined by Chinese and Greek food in the ranking. Mexican food is the 5th most craved cuisine.

Check out this chart of the top 5 in Germany and other key European markets to see just how different — or similar — our food cravings really are.
