One of my local favorites in now closed: Brummis for German classics. It was an unlikely hit selling the heavier German dishes to a Southern California town but she made it work because she did it with love and picked the best of the best German home style favorites.
My own was Bockwurst and strong German mustard with her version of potato salad and sublime home made sauerkraut.
This place will be so missed. Thank you Brummis for those years of dining pleasure.
