Good German in Glendale-VonWesternhagen

K | Feb 27, 2006 03:17 PM

Dear Chowfriends,
Wanted to share a pleasant experience from yesterday. We traveled to Glendale for German, but rather than Zum Stamtisch we tried VanWesternahagen which is just a few blocks away on Cooper Ave. (71-28)
The food was quite good - real sauerbraten, real Jager schnitzel, real dumplings, real spaetzle. We can say this since we lived for a year in Munich.
The owner, Ernie, is the butcher, the bratwurst maker, and the bartender. His wife is the excellent cook.
We found it to be the real deal, and look forward to returning. You have helped us so many times in the past; we are happy to share this with you.
