One of the cities I first set foot on in Europe is Nuremberg/Nürnberg. Thanks to my mother-in-law who lives in Fürth, visiting her would also mean being able to walk around this historical Bavarian state. Thanks to her too, we were treated to this yummy lunch out during our recent visit.
S’Baggers is one of the few automated restaurants around the world. There are servers, yes, but they are not there to serve you food but instead guide you on how the restaurant’s system works.

S’baggers have metallic tracks from upstairs that send food and drinks directly to the tables. Customers order on touch screens, swipe their cards on built in readers, select food and drinks which are extensively described too for easy picking. The kids find this really cool! Customers can then wait for their food with a read-out that shows when the food is expected to be delivered…and whenever there’s food coming down, you’d see diners looking up!

Food comes in pots like the one above and are strapped neatly…they’re truly hot! S’baggers’ menu borders from traditional German cuisines of seafood, poultry, pork, beef, vegetables, soups and side dishes to pasta, sauces and unique German desserts.
What I got is a dish so close to my heart and palate – baked, super tender pork escalope served with ham, cheese and pineapple on top! Yumm! It’s a really fun experience and the food so yummy, I’m left speechless! ^_^
