I'll find it! I now have over 6 million files on my PC, so only God knows where I put it. I'll find it though! I'll drop you a PM when I've posted it.

The standard is to get a couple curry wurst and kartoffelsalat and pommes frites with mayo.

It took me awhile to get used to having a big glob of mayo on my fries, but it's actually quite good once you get used to it.

German potato salad is to kill for!

I'm confused. A Berliner seems to be a filled pastry while a currywurst is a sauced sausage.

I assume when you put the two terms together you are saying Berliner meaning a sausage in the Berlin style rather than a filled pastry/sauced sausage combo food of some kind.

A "Berliner" is someone who is from Berlin.

"Berliner Pastry" might be a more appropriate name for the desert.

"Berliner Currywurst" or just "Berlin Currywurst" is a well known phrase and will result in many bellies growling if said in public...

I've just posted the recipe:
Berliner Currywurst

I would name my place "Vittles." It would be southern country cooking.

Breakfasts would be things like buttermilk pancakes (offered with seasonal fruits,) biscuits and gravy...or maybe fried apples, fresh eggs, seared ham on biscuits, etc.

Lunches would be things like red beans and rice, pimento cheese sandwiches, blts, seasonal soups and salads, beef and gravy on bread with mashed potatoes, etc.

Dinners would be things like chicken and dumplings, meatloaf, roasted turkey, fried catfish, etc.

Desserts would be cakes, pies, seasonal cobblers, puddings, sundaes, etc.

Basically, the menu would change through the week and through the seasons. Somethings would always be on the menu though! Pinto beans with cornbread, for example. :D Coca-cola products, sweet tea, etc. As for a take out menu, it would offer picnic type of fare, and be slightly different in that one could get an RC and moon pie for dessert.

People all over the world love "Filled Pastries".

I know I do! Too much!

I could *live* in any German Bakery. Of course if I did, I wouldn't be able to leave anyway, because they would never fit me out the door again!

A lot of food could qualify as American, from all the good evidence presented; a whole cornucopia.

if you want to serve American food, you'll need to write a cook book / develop a menu based on native American's recipes. native Americans occupied New England to Florida, west thru the Plains to the desert south-west and north from there to the Pacific north-west. may as well move right along into Canada and talk to those native peoples because the native Americans didn't diddle squat about a latitude parallel.

everybody else that is "American” today brought their "food dishes" with them.

this is the issue with a few billion internet questions that start off “I want to make an authentic (fillintheblank)”

dishes originate in an area - and have multiple thousand variations with a single generation.
add a couple hundred generations, a bit of human migration, and it is exceptionally difficult to identify a “dish” that is unique to one area/geography/population/nationality.

and then one has to adjust for the time frame in question. pretty much “everybody” thinks of pizza as Italian. tomatoes come from the new world - so pizza is Italian only if you date forward from the 15th century. limiting the discussion to “written documented recipes” doesn’t work either - there’s this problem with chocolate . . . .
