German cuisine has been neglected in Southern California for a number of years but not at Jagerhaus Restaurant in Anaheim.
Here for over three decades this restaurant has been serving authentic homemade German food. The decor and ambiance, as well as the imported wines and beers, add to the feeling that you are on a visit to Germany.
We were at Jagerhaus last evening and met with Owner Sandra Schwaiger to learn of her success at this restaurant and taste some of the classic German dishes on the menu.
Sandra proved to be the perfect hostess as she told the history of the restaurant and how she took over as owner sixteen years ago when the original owner retired.
Our lavish spread of food opened with a tasting of Bratwurst, Knackwurst and Polish sausage. Then things got serious with platters of Szegediner Goulash, Sauerbraten, Wiener Schnitzel and a roast ham hock with the home made Sauerkraut.
In fact almost everything on the menu is made in house including the breads and desserts.
Our beverages included a German draft pilsner served in a classic mug, a German red wine and a prized ice wine.
Our desserts included apple strudel and bread pudding with a Vanilia sauce.
We were amazed with both the superior quality of everything we tasted but also what we thought was very modest pricing.
