Dinner at the Gablerbräu

After a long day of exploring the city with Franny and friends we found the Gablerbräu, a restaurant for the "everyman," according to its website. I chose a special and unfortunately can't remember the name of the dish. Because it's a special I can't find it online. It bore the name of Salzburg though, and I do remember what was in the dish.

Clockwise from the top: dumpling, blood pudding, bacon, bratwurst, roast pork and sauerkraut.

I was so excited to begin eating that I forgot that I might want to take a picture for the blog before taking a bite. Luckily Franny reminded me before I took more than a bit of the dumpling and pork roast. I think the pork was my favorite part of this dish with its caraway crust and natural tenderness which paired well with everything else on the plate. The blood pudding, which is tucked underneath the dumpling, was delicious and the sauerkraut was so good that Franny took as much "untainted" kraut as she could. Franny's friend Jenny even picked up the check! Thanks Jenny, I loved meeting you and Lindsey!

This tasty looking treat was tasty! Made of lots of eggs, a little flour, and some whiskey and cream this was a perfect accompaniment with an afternoon coffee which was a welcome rest breaking up all of the site seeing we had been doing and would do. The texture was crisp and soft at the same time, like eating Tiramisu with meringue. And the added bonus was that it was enjoyed with wonderful friends.

Indoor Picnic

Olives, pickled artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh peppers, mozzarella, bergkäse, grapes, pears, wonderfully fresh bread, and some salami for me. This was a perfect indoor picnic to wait for the crazy mountain weather to pass.

Am I eating the ice cream or am I thinking about it?
