The Food World Cup: Germany Versus Argentina

Read on to see how the foods of Germany and Argentina stack up against each other.

Wurst vs. Chorizo

In Germany, wurst is the best, but in Argentina, chorizo rules. Which is better? Both sausages are delicious representations of their country, but only one can win. We may have to go give this one to chorizo just because of its versatility. You can enjoy chorizo in a variety of savory dishes like eggs, pastas and stews.

Sauerbraten vs. Asado

Sauerbraten, meaning 'sour' or 'pickled,' is a beloved German version of pot roast, but in Argentina, asado is a popular way of cooking meats for a barbecue. Since asado is so well-known worldwide, it beats sauerbraten.

Schnitzel vs. Milanesa

Schnitzel (with noodles) is one of Fräulein Maria's favorite's things in the classic song from The Sound of Music, and we'd have to agree. The breaded meat is really hard not to like. Milanesa is a breaded eggplant or meat that gets sprinkled with cheese, kind of like an eggplant or chicken parmesan, that's popular in Latin American countries like Argentina. Schnitzel wins this contest not just for being delicious, but for also being mentioned in a musical. Sorry, milanesa!

Brezel vs. Faina

Brezel kind of sounds like 'pretzel,' which is exactly what the brezel from Germany is. In Argentina, they eat faina, a nutty flatbread made with garbanzo bean flour. Brezel wins here because it's kind of the perfect snack to enjoy while watching the World Cup.

Eintopf vs. Locro

Both Germany and Argentina love their meaty stews. Eintopft means 'one pot' and often contains broth, veggies, potatoes and pork or chicken. Locro is made of meat and corn, beans and sometimes yellow pumpkin. We're calling this stew contest a tie.

Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte vs. Dulce de Leche

Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte, also known as Black Forest Cake, is a rich chocolate cake made with tart cherries and whipped cream. Dulce de leche is a popular in Latin American countries like Argentina, and is a dessert that caramelizes sugar in milk. It's actually pretty popular throughout the world, which is why it wins the dessert category here.

Beer vs. Fernet

Germany has been making beer for three thousand years. Meanwhile, Argentineans love the spirit Fernet, which comes from Italy but has grown to be a liquor of choice for many in Argentina. Still, beer is a choice drink for sporting events all over the world, which makes it our winner here.

The World Cup has the power to captivate the entire globe with a game, and even though the U.S. is out of the competition, we'll certainly be watching when Germany and Argentina duke it out in the finals. But in the meantime, we're thinking less about how the teams' football skills compare, and more about how their regional cuisines stack up against each other. What's better, the foods of Germany or Argentina? For instance, is wurst better than chorizo? Does milanesa beat out schnitzel?
