I loved it but it wasn't the same as German food in the states. I didn't eat in friend's mother cooked for us every day and the food wasn't heavy or fatty at all. (I was in Munchengladbach near Dusseldorf) She served lots of vegetables and fish (there was some beef) and we ate a heavier meal at lunch and a light meal at dinner. (She did sneak some vacuum sealed dry sausages into my luggage though.) Now because you were near Alsace, the food you had was very different from what one might get in other parts of the country because of the French influence and technically that isn't considered German food in the culinary world, it's considered Alsatian. Also overall, German cuisine, as with many other cuisines all over the world, is changing as new technology and knowledge comes to those countries as well as new ethnic influences, so it was just a matter of time before the cuisine lost it's stereotypes and advanced.

I also like German cuisine. I live in "Oberschwaben" in southwest Germany and have for over 20 years. I don't like everything, but a lot of it is good and it has gotten to be a lot lighter over the years.

I like German food - it's too heavy to eat every day, but I regularly rotate something from a German cook book into our menus.

Firstly, German food in the states is not German food. Not quite. Keep in mind also that this category is "Dining Out", and how can you fairly answer this question if you only ever ate at your friend's house? Moreover, the term "Alsacian" refers to the region of Alsace, a province in France. On the German side, the state is Baden-Wurtemburg and the food or cuisine is referred to as "Badisch". My opinion of German cuisine is that it is incredibly good.
