Carving for authentic German food? Then make it a point to dine at Stammtisch Restaurant in Monterey County. Owned and operated by husband-and-wife team, this quaint restaurant which has a timeworn décor makes you feel as if you're eating a home cooked meal in someone's home.
It's worth dropping by just for the brews alone. The various kinds of brews on tap and the sausages are imported all the way from Germany. If you're hungry, an advice is to eat without regard for your arteries as food on the menu is fried in butter. Though prices are steep, the food is worth a try.
Go for the hot, rich and thick cream of vegetable soup for entrée. It's almost buttery in consistency, enriched with sweet carrot, potato and onion. For something very German, why not try the sausage trifecta with side dishes? The sausages are served atop a mound of warm sauerkraut garnished with little mustard seeds and a heap of fried potato coins and crispy onions. Be warned that food portions are hug, so be prepared to leave the restaurant filling full.
