With Deutsches Haus closed off to the public, there really isn’t a German restaurant in Vancouver until I came across this place. As Sheepie and I took photos of the restaurant from the entrance, he said that it really smells like a German restaurant.
A low-key, relaxing restaurant with German decor. The server wasn’t all that friendly, though I guess it was alright service.
We both ordered the Jäger Snitzel $15 and soda pop $2.50. The dish includes 2 sides. I ordered red cabbages and potato salads. (potato pancakes are extra $2 and sausages are $3). Just a little note about the price. On the website, it says the dish is for $18, while on the menu it’s $16, but our receipt says $15.
Sheepie requested the Snitzel to be unbreaded, while I kept it the way they regularly serve as breaded. The Snitzel was quite thick, and quite chewy, not flattened and thin like they are in Germany. The cold potato salad was very good. Sheepie had gravy with his Snitzel, but there wasn’t much sauce. He complained that the Snitzel should be drowning in sauce. I also recall seeing that Snitzel dishes in Germany were as he described. However, the portion was quite large and we were quite stuffed after the dish.
Overall, I thought the dinner was pretty good. From Sheepie’s point of view, it may not be even be a ‘good’ German restaurant, however if we wanted some German once in a while, we would have Katzenjammer to go to now.
