At a friend's suggestion, I visited Schnitzelhaus last night. I don't hanker for German food that often, but when I do, this is the place. My friend and I tried the schnitzel with anchovy sauce. I expected a brown sauce but it was served with a mildly anchovy-flavord cream sauce. The portion of schnitzel was enormous, and greaseless. The accompanying red cabbage and potatoes were tasty, but the carrots were overcooked to my taste. This is an old-fashioned place where each plate comes garnished with a parsley sprig and soup or salad are included. I enjoyed the buttery potato soup, and tried not to think of what it was doing to my arteries. She got the salad, a basic coffee shop salad with iceberg lettuce and shredded veggies. The German chocolate cake was entirely ordinary, and cold, to boot. But the warmth of the host and the enormous steins of beer will draw me back when I'm in the mood for schnitzel, smoked porkchops and spaetzle, or sausage and sauerkraut. I also liked the row of kitchen tables that line the sides, as though all parties are big parties. It truly reminded me of German or Austrian beer halls.
I included a link to a previous thread below. Here's an article that includes more menu items with prices: http://www.inetours.com/Pages/Dining_...
