Every time we ordered a schnitzel, it came with a wonderful green salad, and the restaurant's own sweet/tangy dressing, many times made with yogurt. (That drink in the background looks like beer, but isn't. For us non-alchohol drinking folk, a yummy German drink is apfelsaftschorle; apple juice mixed with sparkling water.) At one restaurant, my daughter ordered a kleine (small) plate of käsespätzle. Spätzle is mixed with cheese, sauteed onions, and ham. This was soooo good, and super rich. And this plate was not very kleine! (I made a homemade version of this a while ago, but I didn't use a recipe and didn't really know what I was doing; it tasted like nothing compared to this!)
We were always too stuffed in restaurants to order dessert, but we did have our share of Germany pastries at other occasions. No wonder I came away from Germany with a little extra poundage!!
