More roast goose (Speisekammer report)

Ruth Lafler | Dec 9, 2002 12:27 AM

My family had dinner at Speisekammer in Alameda tonight.

One of the specials at the moment is roast goose. I had a bite of my mother's and it was really delicious. In fact, I liked it better than my venison, although the venison was also very good.

In general we all enjoyed out meals. One complaint I'd have is that they could use more variety in the accompaniments -- although we ordered three different entrees (my dad and BIL had the sauerbraten), they all came with the identical pile of red cabbage and spaetzel. Surely the Germans must eat vegetables other than red cabbage! (Okay, maybe they don't, but Californians, do -- surely there could be something in keeping with German food they could do with California veggies -- I'd settle for Brussels sprouts.)

Still, it's a nice addition to the Alameda/East Bay dining scene.
