We are living in a small German town and you can count the area restaurants on your fingers. Since the kids were out-of-town, we decided to try this more expensive restaurant in town that we haven’t been to before. It was gorgeous inside with old pictures of the place from way back when – talking about black & white pictures with horses still pulling carts. It was a really cozy little place. We had nice deer-place mats in front of us made of a thick felt and the brown metal napkin rings had a little deer poking out at an angle – dang, I wish I took my camera.
The waitress came with the menu, and I ordered a hot tea, since we got a good bit of snow again over night. As I opened the menu and read through my choices. I started to get a bit worried, because most of what I saw had Spaetzle, Dumplings, fruit sauces and all kinds of carby stuff with it. But then I found a dish of roast in a mustard coating on cabbage with home fried potatoes. That was a definite option, I just had to do something about the potatoes. I asked the waitress if I could have broccoli on the side (saw it on the meal above), since I cannot have potatoes. ” No problem at all!” she answered. Hey, that was easy! Because I’ve been to a bistro-style place a few weeks ago, where they would not swap anything for the fries, so I stole one and gave the rest to hubby. But this time, I figured, if they charge that much money, they have a decent cook who is willing to accommodate his guests.
Oh, my gosh, the food was soooo yummy! The meat was tender and the veggies soft and buttery. Oooh, to die for! When I was finished, I had the waitress pack the rest of the veggies to take home so I can have some for lunch again today. We did pay a pretty penny to eat there, 31 Euros for the two of us, but it was well worth it!
