Octopus, fettuccine in Grana Padano
And, of course, every now and then, a beer
Our second night, we dine in a restaurant at the Herrenhausen Gardens, starting with buratta and assorted vegetables, followed by salmon and gnocchi. And, of course, a beer (or two).

For our final dinner in Hannover, we visit a Bavarian beer garden, Paulander am Thielenplatz, and enjoy some old German atmosphere and hospitality. We start with a pretzel (and lots of butter), followed by schweineschnitzel (thin-cut pork chops, breaded and fried), accompanied by champignons, and schweinebraten (slow-roasted pork shoulder in a rich sauce) with sauerkraut.

For lunches, typically a small sandwich with great fresh-sliced charcuterie is tasty and filling.
