The German Butcher’s Restaurant


I neglected to mention that in addition to his shop of fresh and smoked meats, the German butcher has a very popular restaurant right next door. Jade had an enormous smoked pork chop with potato pancakes, applesauce and red cabbage.


And when we thought dessert would be impossible, she ate a city block of Black Forest Cake. We need to go back to France soon 🙂


My husband and I had Reubens with beer and wine. Lord help us!

Today we’re going over to the house to see what we can see. I’ve found an adapter for my IPad and can take some serious pictures today.

    I actually really love german food, lots of potatoes and butter, my godmother is german and I love her food, but goodness it can pack on the pounds!! glad you are having fun. c

  2. Oh, the thought of tiny Jade making her way through all that food is so cute! I can see the appeal.. that cake.. oh my goodness! xoxo

  3. How come no one in the US has spotted the problem or do they just have a surplus of material to make very big clothes?

    The pork chop looks very tasty. The cake looks extreme but manageable, at a push. The vast fried sandwich is a step too far for me. Looking forward to your return to Sens.

    That’s awesome! Sadly, our German butcher doesn’t have a restaurant, but we do have a revival of very authentic Biergartens in the area. There are lots of light, healthy options in Germany I wish more people knew about (wonderful fresh trout and delicate butter lettuce salads, for example, not to mention spargel!) I know you will be cooking some of those for us soon. 😉
    In the meantime, I am looking forward to seeing your new house…

  7. Looks terrific! Love German food, but yeah, can’t eat it too often. Glad the food experience here is on the upswing. 🙂

  8. Looks like a wonderfully porky spread! That smoked chop looks divine covered in apple sauce. Swoon! Is this the butcher close to your new house?
