Cincinnati: Gotta get a Goetta

Ryan Horan | | Mar 29, 2004 02:28 PM

For true fans of the cuisine of the Queen City (and yes, Cincinnati does have a very distinct cuisine), goetta holds a place utterly unchallenged. It is one of the great unifiers of the city; East and West side, local kitchens and city diners, name brands and secret home recipes, goetta can be found in nearly every corner of true Cincinnati society. For those of you unfamilliar with the product, I strongly recommend you familiarize yourself with what has thankfully remained one of the best kept secrets of the city.
Among the devotees; where do your loyalties lie? Do you have a secret breakfast spot or a favorite butcher's counter? Do you take it plain with eggs or do you dress it up with syrup or ketchup? Better yet? Anyone have any recipes? For my money, there is scarcely a comestible on the planet better than Eckerlin's Best at Findaly Market and I sorely miss it here in Boston...
