New items[edit]

Please only add new items if you can explain them and add a comment if they are local specialities. --Flip666 19:04, 8 April 2006 (EDT)flip


Bavaria is not really a vegetarian-friendly country. If you want to add a dish to this list make sure it is really Bavarian and not something a restaurant manager decided to be hip at this moment. --Flip666 19:10, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

Bavarian beer[edit]

For a discussion whether this should be a separate article see the Bavarian Beer discussion --Flip666 11:55, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

I don't think that is an article according to our policy. Information relevant to travellers should probably be placed into the Bavaria article instead. Otherwise, it'd possibly fit Wikipedia best. --Ricardo (Rmx) 18:00, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Yup, I made a comment regarding this and Bavarian food on the contibutors talk page. So much good info, it would be a shame for it to be outside the guides. Majnoona 18:12, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Ok, but I would like to continue writing it as a separate article an when it is nearly finished decide, if I put it on the Bavaria or the Munich article. The problem is, often Bavaria is reduced to Upper Bavaria and Franconia is forgotten. The local specialities are often different. If we cannot find someone who writes about Franconia maybe we should put it in the Munich article because as I live in Munich I cannot say much about Franconia... --Flip666 11:52, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
I think there's definitely a place in Wikitravel for this kind of article, especially for types of cuisine and food. I'd say it's a localized travel topic targeted towards a specific group of people -- people who take beer seriously. I'd compare Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine as another example. I think it's travel-related. I think we could have a summary on Bavaria#Drink, but for the nitty-gritty details move them to another page. I'm not sure it would make sense for every destination or region (do we need Guadalajara beer? Yemeni beer?) but it may be useful here. Let's see how it develops. --Evan 12:13, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
As the main author of Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine I don't disagree entirely, but there's a definitely slippery slope here and I think this article is sliding a bit too far down it. Could we just standardize on allowing a Bavarian cuisine, or any other "X cuisine"? Jpatokal 12:20, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
Jpatokal makes an excellent point. Bavaria as a whole is quite unusual as far as German states go. Bavarians have a strong connection with the past and traditions and even have some unusual foods that are a bit harder to find in other German localities and states like Oxenscwanzsuppe (Ox tail soup). I think this would best fit under Bavarian food, because these beers and cuisine are Bavarian originals and specialities. Sapphire 12:24, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

political correct[edit]

Quote: Neger (meaning "Negro" and it is politically correct to use this word in Germany) Weißbier mixed with coke

It is not political correct to say "Neger" in germany. anyway, it is used in some regions (bavaria...) and by some type of people... "Diesel" is another name for that type of beermix.



I should have written "in this context it is political correct". "Diesel" is never used in Bavaria. --Flip666 04:25, 9 April 2006 (EDT)
