Schweinebraten (roast pork)

A classic Bavarian dish, schweinebraten can be made with a variety of pork cuts, like shoulder or even loin. It’s traditionally roasted with dark beer and onions.

Schweinshaxe (roasted ham hock)

A beloved beer hall classic, roasted ham hock or shank (pig knuckles) are crispy on the outside with tender meat.

Traditional German Sausages

o Bratwurst (Grilled Sausage)

o Knockwurst (Boiled Sausage)

o Weisswurst (Bacon Sausage)

o Currywurst (Sausage with Curry Sauce)

Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes)

These potato pancakes are served with a salad or sweet apple sauce.

Brezen (pretzels)

Large and soft, they’re the perfect accompaniment to beer.

Käsespätzle (cheese noodles)

This is a savory, cheesy version of spätzle, a traditional egg noodle.


Cabbage with sweet apples and aromatic caraway.

Würstl (sausages)

Würstl refers to a variety of classic Bavarian sausages, sautéed in a skillet with bacon and apple sauerkraut. Serve with plenty of mustard.

Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick)

Simple and fairly self-explanatory, steckerlfisch is marinated, skewered and grilled fish.

Roast Chicken

Chickens are spit-roasted until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Rubbing a lemon-and-thyme butter over the chicken before roasting ensures superbly crispy skin.

Knödel (potato or flour dumplings)

These are large, dense, ultra-comforting dumplings.

Obatzda (spiced cheese-butter spread)

Aged soft cheese, like Camembert, mixed with butter, a small amount of beer and spices including paprika, salt, pepper and garlic. Or with crème fraîche and Dijon mustard along with farmer’s cheese and, of course, butter.

Meat Dishes

Sauerbraten (Roast Beef Stew)

Rinderroulade (Beef Roll)

Schnitzel (Breaded Cutlet)






Gebrannte Mandeln
