To clean your palette, do try their Apple Cinnamon Parcels, a traditional German dessert. Cinnamon apple strudel is basically a pastry made of refined flour filled with sweet and tangy filling made of apples topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with icing sugar. Perfection!
Baked Hassleback Potatoes has two potatoes sliced but not all the way and then cooked, placed on toasted pretzel bread which is topped with cheese and a drizzle of fondue cheese sauce, and served with chopped bell peppers and chives.
German Soft Pretzel is a German soft bread in the shape of a knot. 3 pieces are served in a bread basket and garnished with chopped parsley.
Chicken Schnitzel is another delight. Schnitzel means a thin slice of meat usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderiser. Crumb fried chicken schnitzel is served with a sunny-side up, accompanied by sauteed green peas, pan-tossed cherry tomatoes and German potato salad.
