We start our first weekly funny/awkward German word article with the word Blitzessen. Even though we speak German at Goethe-level, this is a word we haven’t read or heard of until a few days ago. What a relief that even the Duden (the Duden – www.duden.de - is a regularly updated dictionary of the German language) said: “Unfortunately we haven’t found ‘blitzessen’, or did you mean ‘bemessen’”, no we didn’t.
You can have a nice Blitzessen at the headquarters of Munich’s Schneider-Bräu-Dynasty, the famous Weisses Brauhaus (Tal 7, 80331 Munich). The word is supposed to mean “fast meal” (Blitz-thunderbolt, Essen-meal), and you can have one of them at the Weisses Brauhaus daily until 5pm. It’s their word for a fast served daily dish. It costs about 7 Euros and can for example consist of a schnitzel with potatoes or creamy spinach and fried egg.
