I haven't ever had German food really, so when my cousin told me there was an authentic hole-in-the-wall restaurant near us, we had to go immediately! After a grueling, mud-filled run through the ROC race, we were ready for a huge meal... and what better way to fill our stomachs than with tons of sausage, German pancakes and spaetzle.
I didn't have my camera on hand, so I hope these Instagram pictures will do - what would the world do without our ever handy cell phones huh? Anyways look at that gorgeous thing above! It's the traditional German pancake, served simply with powdered sugar and lemons. It was beyond! Unlike any pancake because first, it was ginormous, and second, it was deliciously crispy... still dreaming about it.
I chose to get schnitzel with a mushroom cream sauce and spaetzle. It was definitely what I was craving - full of flavor and carbs. The spaetzle wasn't the best I've tried because it tasted like it had been cooked and re-heated but it still hit the spot.
My dish also came with a side of sauerkraut. I thought I would have like it but I've come to the conclusion that I don't enjoy sauerkraut as much as I'd thought. My sister enjoyed it so it was probably some damn good sauerkraut.
This place is famous for their homemade plum jam so I knew I had to steal some from my friend since my dish didn't come with any. Good idea on my part because it was AMAZING. So fresh and not too sweet. Wow, plum jam, I'm just in love with you.
Yum, yum. Overall, I really enjoyed this place. It's home-y, no frills at all, which I enjoyed a lot.
