I thought that it might be helpful to describe other typical dishes, although I don’t have photos at the moment (and some dishes I might not get photos, as I don’t like their taste).
Versoffene Schwestern (translation would be “drunken sisters”) is a very lovely dish but only for the ones who don’t drive or stay somewhere near for the night. It is a clear soup with white wine and sliced pancakes inside. For those who have been in Baden-Württemberg, it is something like the Palatinate version of Flädlesuppe.
Very typical for autumn,when fruits and vegetables have been harvested, is Krumbeeresupp (German = Kartoffelsuppe, potato soup), usually a thick soup, often with herbs or mushrooms or tomatos. If the soup has a suffix “sauer” (sour), then it contains a bit vinegar. This potato soup is often served with Quetschekuche (German: Zwetschgenkuchen, damson cake), see photo of a stall at Speyer’s Bauernmarkt.
Also typical for autumn are Keschde (German = Kastanien, chestnuts) which are served as vegetable and often also as filling for stuffed goose or duck in late autumn.
The proximity to France’s Alsace is showing again in the dish Bäckerofe. For a detailed description of the French version of Bäckerofe, please see Jean-Louis' Baekaoffe at Kintzheim
Traditionally, Dampfnudeln (no real translation, even Wikipedia calls it like this in the English version) are served on Fridays, as they don’t contain meat but are a kind of yeast bread, served hot with vanilla sauce or wine sauce (haha, what else).
As snack in restaurants, Straußwirtschften and the Palatinate Forest hiking huts you can also eat Weißer Käs (German = Weißer Käse, white cheese, although it has nothing to do with typical cheese), a creamy curd (Quark) with onions, bell pepper, pepper and chives, served with thick bread and butter. Oh yummmm…
