Since moving to Euless, TX, I've missed many of our favorite restaurants, like Addis Abeba, Joe's Italian Cafe, and Kostas Cafe. However, I was happy to discover one excellent new restaurant, Everything German, and it's so delicious we can hardly go two weeks without eating there.
As you might imagine, Everything German serves German food, including an amazing variety of Schnitzel, brats, and other authentic German dishes. My favorite dish is the Rahmschnitzel, which is Schnitzel topped with a delicious brown gravy and served with red cabbage (Rotkraut) and Spatzle. The Schnitzel is crispy on the outside, but tender on the inside, and the gravy is rich and flavorful. The Spatzle are buttery little pasta dumplings that are wonderful on their own, or mixed into the extra gravy. The Rotkraut has a delicious tangy flavor that's a very satisfying accompaniment to the richer food. Plus, it's healthy.
My husband loves the Zwiebelschnitzel, which is topped with sauteed onions and a fried egg, and he also like the Schnitzeltopf, which is topped with Black Forest ham, Swiss cheese, and a creamy mushroom-leek sauce. In fact, none of us has tried a schnitzel at Everything German that we didn't really like.
Recently, we decided to order the house sampler so we could try a large variety of other things on their menu. It started with a selection of their salads, including a fantastic cucumber-dill salad, a sweetly delicious carrot salad, and a shredded cabbage salad. All of them were good, but the cucumber salad was a real treat.
For the main course, the sampler included two Schnitzel, a Roulade, a Krautroulade, a Kaiserwurst, a Weisswurst, Spatzel, and Semmelknodel. The Schnitzel and Spatzel were as wonderful as always, but we hadn't had a chance to try the other dishes until now. I enjoyed the Semmelknodel, a type of Austrian/German bread dumpling immensely. It had a texture I loved, and great flavor. The Krautrolade was a cabbage roll stuffed with ground pork. It had good flavor, and I really liked the sauce it was served with. The two wursts were quite excellent as well. The only disappointment was the Roulade, a beef roll stuffed with pickles, onions, bacon, and ground pork. The beef was too dry, and the stuffing tasted too briny for my taste.
Our meal was accompanied by Rotkraut, Sauerkraut, and Jagersosse. The Rotkraut is always excellent, and I enjoy the homemade Sauerkraut as well. I'm not a fan of mushrooms, so I let my husband eat the Jagersosse, a type of mushroom gravy. He liked it very well, and liked dipping his Schnitzel in it.
For dessert, we shared a bavarian cream, which is a cold vanilla cream topped with warm fruit compote and whipped cream. The combination of the cold cream with the warm fruit is absolutely amazing, the perfect end to our meal.
