Ms. Chou Shu-Ying, owner of Schwarzwald Deutsche, used to live in Germany and studied at an authentic German culinary school. The menu provides a wide variety of choices, from German soups, salads, appetizers, specialties and handmade noodles, to German chocolate fondue, cakes and pastries, German beer and herbal teas. With this selection, you won't have to travel abroad to enjoy authentic German gourmet cuisine. --Written and translated by Diva Yang
A. German Pork Knuckles with Sauerkraut and Mashed Potatoes (small NT$500, large NT$600) is a very well-known German dish. The knuckles need to be marinated five days before grilling, and are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Those with smaller appetites may request an a la carte order (NT$520). In Eastern Germany, these knuckles are cooked differently--with steaming making the texture softer and less greasy. While you're at it, order a glass of Warsteiner dark beer (NT$180 330ml) to go with your meal. Rumor has it that this is Formula One driver Michael Schumacher's favorite beer.
B. Chicken Cordon Bleu, plus Potato Salad or Garlic Butter Rice, plus a Mixed Salad (NT$300) is a common German family dish. The chicken filling has three layers--chicken, ham and cheese--and cutting it open releases a combined fragrance that is irresistible! The daily afternoon tea special (NT$180, 2-5 pm) consists of a piece of cake and drink, with apple pie and German herbal tea being the most popular combo.
C. Schwarzwald Deutsche recently moved to a new location and will soon celebrate its 15th anniversary. Its new dining room is comfortable, cozy and more spacious.
