Goetta news flash

Because you can't get ENOUGH goetta in a town that has not one, but TWO goetta festivals, MainStrasse Village is thrilled to announce that they've added an extra day to the 7th Annual "Original" Goettafest - Friday, June 15, on top of June 16 and 17. Wow. That one's in Covington's MainStrasse Village.
The other one is Aug. 3-5: Glier’s Goettafest at the Newport Riverfront. How do you choose which one to go to?
Haven't tried goetta? Get hoppin'. I'm a big fan of the tasty oatmeal/pork mixture as part of an all-day breakfast at the Anchor Grill.

Glier's Goettafest is the better of the two. It just never made any sense to link the Covington goetta festival with a renaissance festival. It would be like having a combination sauerbraten / Charles Dickens festival.

I have lived here for 25 years and I've yet to eat goetta...
It's on my to-do list!
Maybe this will kick me over the edge.

i am very amused and glad that there is at least one other "foodie" in the Cincinnati area that embraces the charm of The Anchor Grill.

I love the maritime theme, and the hedge of waitresses, and I love their goetta dishes,
specifically the GLT- a double stacker goetta, lettuce, and tomato. But 86 the heaps of mayo.

Their onion rings have soul, and their macaroni salad, while lacking macaroni, has diced up bell peppers, and is my favorite side item.

I'm originally from Louisiana, and i get anyone southerner who visits to try goetta.
In a weird way, it is not wholly dissimilar in its cultural role to our "boudin."

Mokka in Newport, however, is my favorite goetta stop.

The one in Covington is the better of the two, and the original location. I wonder if it'll ever come out as to why we REALLY have two Goetta festivals in the first place??? Hmmm.....
