Rindermarkthalle, St Pauli

Food courts are a perfect way to sample multiple cuisines and still stay within a budget. The Rindermarkthalle in St Pauli was a quick 10 minute walk away from our hotel at Superbude, St Pauli.

Coming out of Feldstraße U-bahn station, the shopping centre is right next to it. Many people drive to the centre as there is a choice of three supermarkets. Edeke being the largest. In addition to the food stalls there are also small shops and bakeries.

Our first port of call was a Thai food stall named ‘Thai Pauli’. After watching noodles furiously being tossed in the wok, we opted to try a plate of Pad Thai (€7.60). Interestingly, there is no fish or meat in this. Only tofu for protein.

That didn’t detract from this plate of noodles. The sauce was nice and everything well cooked. Not a Pad Thai to win any awards but a good, solid effort. The garnishes of peanuts, a wedge of lime and the selection of kecap manis and chilli flakes were all well used to enhance the dish.

After that tasty plate we had a wander around the market hall to see what else was available to try. A stall named Bobby & Fritz specialise in loaded hotdogs, fries and schnitzel. A BBQ schnitzel at Bobby’s comes loaded with onions, bacon, chilli cheese sauce and hickory smoked sauce. We had to try it.

There is an option to make the schnitzel into a complete meal by adding fries and a drink. We grabbed a soft drink with ours and declined the offer but still had fries served with the meal for a cheaper price. It’s definitely worth doing this to save a few pennies.

The schnitzel was anti-diet food personified. A breaded and fried chicken steak slathered with BBQ sauce and toppings on a bed of fries topped with a cheese sauce – oh yes. The schnitzel in general was tasty but for me the chilli cheese sauce on top just wasn’t to my taste. A good option for the money but they do have other versions such as Japanese style.

There are a superb variety of places to eat here at the market hall but also places to shop. A top quality butchery, mediterranean delicatessen and range of supermarkets really do enhance your options. If I lived nearby, I would be here most days.

Edeka is by far the biggest supermarket that we have ever set foot in. A huge range of literally anything and everything is sold here. Ideal if you are self-catering in a nearby hotel or hostel. The prices are also very fair which meant we were regular visitors throughout our stay in St Pauli.

With a location right beside a U-bahn station in a colourful and vibrant area like St Pauli, The Rindermarkthalle is well worth a visit. Travellers on a budget can really take advantage of a variety of good food at a good price. A firm favourite with us.

      That supermarket, no joke, was the biggest I’ve ever seen! The street food stalls were good too – thanks for your comment!
