The beer kegs are flowing. It must be Oktoberfest! Lucky Joy sits down to a German beer-tasting at the Concordia Club, and both hosts tuck into festival favourites: Beef Rouladen, Pig’s Tail and Apfelstrudel.
At Denninger’s, Joy learns how the Pretzel got its shape and what’s new in sausages from Belinda Murray. Ali takes on a hungry man’s portions with Jägerschnitzel and Schweinhaxe (deep-fried Pork Hock) at The Musket. He knocks it all back with a swig of schnapps.
But the party’s not over yet. The hosts are called to the dance floor for the traditional Schuhplattler courtship folkdance. It’s literally a shoe-slapper!
