|Looking Up South Street|
A German Brauhaus is basically about two things - beer and meat. This place delivers that and more. We started with a selection of cheeses (and beer) with and interesting array of asides to heighten their flavor. Traditional German breads as well. Pink kraut, a sour cherry compote, hot mustard and honeyed almonds were included. Besides traditional camembert and gouda, I even sampled some limburger! For our main Meal, Frank had a "Schinken - meat platter" (usually an appetizer) and Kev and I split a "Schlachtplatte - butcher's plate" with a mix of traditional sausage, cured meats, and kraut. No-one went hungry! After enjoying our meats, we couldn't resist some desserts - Strudel, Black forest cake, and Hazelnut tort - along with coffee and conversation. Afterward, we enjoyed walked down to Front street and the overlook for Penn's Landing.
Great Night out!
