The Therme Erding is the largest spa/therme/sauna establishment in Europe. It recently built a spectacular hotel, the Hotel Victory, connecting to it, which I reviewed a while back. You can walk to the Therme from the hotel in your bathrobe. Food in the Therme itself is your usual spa food - some OK Italian and Thai food, a 'culinarium' where I had a mediocre duck dish a while back. You can also get 'healthy' food. This time I decided to go back to my room, put my clothes back on and go to the Empire Restaurant in the Hotel Victory. You can use the buffet in the hotel in your bathrobe, but you have to wear street clothes in the Empire Restaurant. The restaurant itself looks like Taillevent in Paris looked like 50 years ago. A high-ceilinged room, damask tablecloths, sparkling crystal. Quiet. I had an excellent foie gras as a starter, a piece of gently grilled duck liver surrounded by various tidbits of fruit and nuts - not a pate, sitting on a white sauce that I liked but couldn't recognize. I had a rather good Pfalz cabernet/merlot. Second course was a rare, 3 chop rack of lamb, perfectly done, again with delicious small bits of vegetables. I had a glass of an excellent South African pinotage. I ordered the cheese course for dessert - instead of pieces of cheese from a cart they served two small warm cocottes, one with melted vacherin covered with slices of white truffles, the other with perfectly boiled small potatoes with chives. It was like a fondue, with potatoes and truffles instead of bread. "This is a crazy dessert," I thought. I needn't have worried. It was fabulous. And I turned down a Valrhona chocolate cake for it. The meal was 39 Euros, each glass of wine 6 Euros. You can hardly get out of an autobahn Movenpick for this price. I would have not complained if I had paid twice as much. I could actually imagine this as a destination restaurant, vaut le voyage, with a couple of hours in the world's greatest sauna establish thrown in as a bonus!
