The California Bay Area Survival Kit for Germans

Food

  • CostCo has the occassional German cuisine
  • Award-winning Dittmer’s gives you German sausages a-plenty
  • Esther’s Bakery, also located in Mountain View, offers German bread
  • There is the Crossworlds World Market
  • Saag’s Bockwurst is (decent) Weisswurst; get it at Whole Food’s or Andronico’s
  • And if everything fails, just mail-order from German Deli

Socializing

Restaurants

Shipping

  • AccordX: Dirt-cheap, proficient, unfriendly (don’t be distracted by the run down website and office exterior; they are great)

    You need to add Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City. Good beer, and a very easy to choose from menu. Plus the additional iphone prototype.

    Nice list. I learned about some restaurants I didn’t know before in the comments. Thank you!
    You should definitely try the Suppenkueche in SF. It’s awesome, but be ready for a wait. Best way is to be there before 5 and be one of the first ones in line 😉
    Only one year old, but worth a visit is Ludwig’s German table in San Jose downtown. https://www.ludwigssj.com
