Beethoven Diabelli Variations Op.120 - 23 Variation XXII.
Allegro molto. Alla Notte e giorno faticar di Mozart. (Maria Yudina)

I do not recall any German restaurants in Hong Kong serve this dish. Maybe because this is too simple for serving in a restaurant. When I was living in Germany, it was like an every family dish. Also, the names and ingredients are vary from South to North. "Ilona" a friend of mine who lives in Germany. Just sent me her own recipe today. She said this is a perfect German recipe ... especially Berlin : )
