Sausages, schnitzel, WHIPPED PORK FAT and kaiserschmarrn? Grüß Gott!
My first bites at Bernhard Mairinger’s BierBeisl…
Grammel Schmalz: Whipped white pork fat sprinkled w PORK CRACKLING.
Oh, I wasn’t supposed to eat the pork fat with a SPOON?
The Potato Cheese spread was so creamy.
Grapefruit Stiegl Radler: Half Goldbrau/half all natural grapefruit soda. I need this at home for pool-side sipping this summer!
“BierBeisl” Carpaccio, thinly sliced roast pork and bread dumpling, “Styrian Gold”, pumpkin seed vinaigrette.
So beautiful, light and refreshing.
Awesome Käsekrainer Sausage: Swiss cheese infused, light peppery, similar to “Polish”. Served with with tarragon mustard and fresh horseradish. Continental Gourmet Sausage (Glendale) custom-makes these for the chef.
Cheese inside the sausage.
The BEST veal schnitzel I’ve ever had (even in Germany). Make sure you order the vinegary potato salad. NOTE: This is a half-portion. Peter & I split the order.
I usually don’t order dessert, but when it’s made by pastry chef Lissette Rodriguez (she’s worked at ink & the Bazaar), it’s a MUST.
Classic Kaiserschmarrn (like a pancake), with warm plum compote.
Poppyseed Parfait, crispy chocolate tuille, raspberries… so GOOD!
Peter chatting with lovely Lissette!
Grab a seat at the “stammtisch” (communal table) along this wall. It’s the perfect spot to watch the action in the kitchen.
The talented Austrian himself, Chef Bernhard Mairinger!
