Cafe Europe

We went to Cafe Europe on Tuesday night. It's located at 104 Calistoga Road, in the Safeway shopping mall.

For Restaurant Week, they offered:

Sausage Platter for $19--German bratwurst & Nurenberger sausages, grilled, German sauerkraut & apple red cabbage, warm potato salad.

Hungarian Goulash for $19--Top Sirloin beef, seasoned, cooked to perfection, with onions. Finished in a mild paprika sauce, served with pasta. I loved this dish. The meat was tender and the pasta was actually spaetzle. The carrots were sweet. I'm not a carrot fan but I actually liked these. The sauerkraut was delicious--not too sour.

Roasted Pork Shank--Schweins Haxe for $29--Seasoned and roasted to perfection, its own gravy, mashed potato. This fell off the bone but had a nice crispy skin. I gnawed the bone clean. The dish came with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and carrots.

Butcher Platter--Schlachtplatte for $29--Pork Schnitzel, smoked pork chop, Nuremberger sausage, sauerkraut & apple red cabbage, warm potato salad.

Each entree came with your choice of:

House salad with dill sauce. The dill sauce was delicious--it was slightly sweet but the sweetness was not overpowering.

Potato & Leek soup--creamy but not too heavy.

The dinner also came with dessert:

Austrian Apple Strudel a la mode with salted caramel ice cream.
