The Ever-changing Senator Lounge Menu
In the past month, I've passed through Frankfurt on each of my intercontinental itineraries, and so had the chance to visit the Senator lounge four times in four weeks. Besides being a pleasant place to relax and take a shower, its menu is surprisingly varied, with hardly a repeat between visits.
In August on my way to California, there was spaetzle with poultry and mushroom sauce, and a vegetable gnocchi(?) dish. The frankfurter does make a frequent appearance.
The cakes are always delicious, and this season seemed to have a rotation of mini bundt cakes.
On my way back from California, a spicy chicken curry with almonds...
... and an almond cake stood out.
There was also a Thai chicken soup. Love all of the spicy food!
On my way to Colombia, they offered a vegetarian Greek orzo dish, Argentinian beef stew with rice, blueberry muffin, a different cake, and one of the "summer" drinks they have on offer, a lavender pear lemonade.
I got a second helping with the frankfurter and pretzel roll, and a tomato soup that was basic but hearty and comforting.
On the way back, there was yet again a new spread.
They had a rice with chicken in leek-cream sauce, and some kind of boring vegetable wheat berry dish.
I really enjoyed the soup - beef consommé with "Swabian dumplings" filled with vegetables. What was funny was that there was a "vegetarian" sign next to the dish, but adjacent to that sign was a "beef" sign, because of course, the broth is not vegetarian!
It's always a pleasure visiting the Senator Lounge in Frankfurt. It's actually a lounge where you can make a full meal of freshly prepared food (not just crackers and cheese, cocktail mix, or prepackaged sandwiches, as some lounges offer), and on top of that they vary the menu so you're never faced with the same spread.
