The schnitzel is a big thumbs up from us. Great noodles and awesome gravy on top really add to this dish. However, the pork actually tasted like a chicken patty to us. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but when you’re expecting pork and taste something similar to chicken, it’s a little unexpected. Although the schnitzel may taste a bit like chicken, the gravy alone is enough to give this dish a really good review.

Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl with Fresh Steamed Baby Vegetables and Marble Potatoes – $8.25

Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl with Fresh Steamed Baby Vegetables and Marble Potatoes – $8.25

Served in a bread bowl with steamed baby vegetables and marble potatoes, this is the most amount of bread you’re going to get at the Festival and it’s a great dish to share. The cheese was good, but perhaps another half-ladle more would have helped finish off all the bread.

Linzer Cookie – $2.50

Linzer Cookie – $2.50

The Linzer cookie is very soft and very sweet! The jam inside is a bit tart, but it works well to offset the sugary top. The powder on the top does make it a little bit messy, so maybe grabbing a fork and a knife might be the best, and cleanest way, to go about enjoying this treat.

Possmann Pure Hard Apple Cider, Frankfurt, Germany (5.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

Possmann describes their Pure Hard Apple Cider: “Possmann Pure Cider has a perfect balance of rich apple flavor while not too sweet and finishing dry. The flavor comes from our unique source of apples which are harvested exclusively from our 800+ farmers in the Hessen region of Germany. Our typical framer has 3 to 15 naturally occurring apple trees on their land that are not part of a cultivated orchard. These country apples provide a uniquely rich apple flavor.”

*NEW* The Tank Brewing Co. Prost! Fest Bier, Miami, FL (5.9% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

Cody R. on Untappd says that this beer is “dry” and “hoppy” with a “musk aftertaste.”

Ayinger Brewery Celebrator Doppelbock, Bavaria, Germany (6.7% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

Ayinger Brewery describes Celebrator Doppelbock as “a beer that has a dominant malty taste. This beer’s origins in a monk’s recipe are reflected in its heartiness. The Pope of Beers, Conrad Seidl, describes it as: ‘Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard. The first taste is of mild fullness with an accompanying coffee tone, which becomes more dominant with the aftertaste. There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer.’”

Glühwein: House-made Hot Spiced Wine – $9.00

Glühwein: House-made Hot Spiced Wine – $9.00

This wine is absolutely horrible. We managed to get a few sips down but it was one of the worst drinks we’ve tried. It tastes like really cheap wine that was warmed up, and possibly, even worse than the cheapest liquor you could find at your grocery store.
