Philadelphia once again has a German Restaurant - great
wursts and a bunch of other authentic dishes.
The wursts include
bratwurst, knockwurst and weisswurst. All are
served with an excellent German potato salad.
That's their knockwurst above, to the right. I've
heard a lot of raves about their bratwurst.
sandwich is topped with a horseradish sauce, tomato
slice and romaine leaf. OK, but either the
schnitzel was pounded to thin, the schnitzel was
overcooked or both.
The fries that came
with the sandwich were fresh cut and ok. They
would be even better if they were cooked to order.
Small plates - get
that, a German restaurant with a menu section labeled
"small" - are worth eating through. Shown to the
right herring rollmops, a laugenbrezel (giant fat
pretzel) and leberwurst on rye. Also an appetizer
and done really well, potato pancakes with apple sauce
and sour cream.
The draught beer
selection is amazing. I counted twenty, including
a bunch of German imports.
I can't wait until
Oktoberfest. There is a balcony that will be a
perfect bandstand for an oompah band.
