I haven't adjusted my internal value for money assessment to the new prices yet. I find myself silently screaming "How much?" whenever i see the prices for anything these days, particularly food. I guess we will all have to reconcile ourselves to them eventually though, as even if inflation goes back down next year, the prices will not, this is the new benchmark.

Just a couple of quick questions, you mentioned that the cost of your lunch included a tip. I lived in Frankfurt for a year from 2021 to 2022. Just as it is in my own country, Australia, tips are, I thought, rare. My questions are: (1) were you raised in North America? and (2) is tipping in Germany an accepted custom of which I am not aware and thus should have been aware when I lived there?
