DJ's Bistro in Concord

pane | Mar 18, 2012 11:17 AM

A colleague and I decided to try out all the Polish/German/Eastern European places near Walnut Creek and Concord. Recently we visited DJ's Bistro on Sutter Street in Concord.

I ordered the small portion of jaeger schnitzel, a breaded pork loin with spaetzle and red cabbage for $8. That this was the small portion was almost unbelievable--the loin covered most of the plate, as you'll see in the attached photo. The quality of the pork was good--it was tender, with a lovely flaky fresh-fried crust. The loin was parked on top of a small pool of mushroom sauce, which was nice--I appreciated that I could try the crust before it was drowned out by a cream sauce en route to the table.

I love spaetzle in general, but didn't love this one. The texture was off, with some hard knobby bits. I suspected that it had been cooked earlier in the day and quickly pan-fried again before hitting my plate. The cabbage was just OK--I like cooked red cabbage, but like a little more spark to it. The texture was nice and silky, though.

Overall, the pork was great, and the meal itself felt like a good value. Very friendly service. I would visit again.
