The Allgäu offers a wide range of good places to eat, from cozy little Gasthöfe serving traditional Swabian or Bavarian cuisine to upscale restaurants with good ratings in gourmet guides. Local specialties include many varieties of Swabian Maultaschen, large ravioli-like squares of pasta with a meat, spinach, or cheese filling, and Allgäuer Käsespätzle, little flour-and-egg dumplings boiled in water, then mixed with grated local cheeses and garnished with browned onions. Allgäu cheeses turn up as an ingredient in many dishes and on cheese platters at the end of a meal.
