Best Recession Menu


The Great Recession sucks, no doubt about it. But some good things are coming out of it. Speisekammer has introduced a smart Recession Menu. Yay! Marketing ploy? Hardly. Chef Peter Kahl takes a chunk of his most popular dishes — kartoffelpfannkuchen, Wiener schnitzel, jägerschnitzel, sauerbraten, bratwurst, schweinebraten, weiskohlrolade, cürry wurst, and gratinierte käsespätzle — and halves the portions and slashes the prices. What German-food lovers wind up with are plates that are truly single-portion-size — or at least ought to be, because recession-size portions still feel hefty. This reduction in size and cost is perfect for the budget, and it's a very smart way to eat. Hello, waistline. On top of all that, diners feel like they're getting such a deal they'll order that extra beer, add an appetizer, and splurge on dessert. In the end, they'll actually spend about the same as they would pre-recession, but they'll feel like they're getting a lot more, and in these times, that's something.
