German cuisine is famous worldwide for its hot and spicy and yet warm, hearty and delicious meals, which always include lots of proteins. The first thing that comes to mind when you think of German cuisine are the famous sausages of all shapes and tastes (including the popular bratwurst), sour-kraut (which stands for the shredded cabbage that has been salted and fermented in its own juice), potato salad and, of course, a frosty mug of beer (or two). Germans appear to love their meat, be that smoked, boiled, fried, baked, stewed or raw. Naturally, German butchers in Australia have over years become increasingly popular among the local population and well as among the descendants from the good old Europe.
Needless to say, however, that any nation's authentic food is hard to come by if you look for it in another continent. German cuisine was no different … until … we discovered this place in the heart of Fremantle, offering exactly what you'd expect to be served in any decent Berlin or Dusseldorf restaurant (or any other local German restaurant, for that matter)!
Huge, warm, delicious meals look absolutely amazing on the plate. But their look is nothing compared to their tastes. If you were hoping for a doggy bag, forget about it – your plates will be empty by the time you have to make a move.
Soups taste exactly like your granny used to make – with absolutely nostalgic home-made flavour. Kids were delighted, emptying the plates.
The "tasting plate" of sausages has all the varieties that the restaurant offers along with all the matching sauces to complement the palate. With the exception of the thick chicken sausages, the rest were quite spicy, cutting the kids out of the competition. But what a pleasure we've had enjoying all these traditional mouth-watering servings.
With the slightly hidden away entrance, this amazing restaurant in the heart of Freo's cappuccino strip, is not to be missed by anyone, and especially not if you've been especially looking for some great German food in Perth.
Every table is equipped with a stack of cards, a set of Jenga blocks and there are also tables with crayons and paper for the younger connoisseurs in waiting.
The restaurant also features a massive balcony overlooking the main street. On a warmer day, you can absolutely opt to dine there.
Another special feature of this place is its huge plasma screen television, visible from every table in the restaurant (except for the balcony perhaps) that broadcasts a life journey of a train, showing all the snowy scenery, which looks European (potentially German, which would be logical). For some reason, little boys (and their fathers) are especially fascinated by this type of entertainment, watching the train move - mesmerised…
