Most Blissful Wiener Schnitzel 


If you've ever lived in Germany or Austria you know the joy of good Wiener schnitzel, the melt-in-your-mouth, buttery, crisp veal or pork cutlets that have been pounded thin, breaded, fried, and served with a slice of lemon. It's a dish of subtle flavors, and at Speisekammer, whose name is German for pantry, it tastes so good it might have been made by your own personal Austrian grandma. The meat is always tender, and the breading crisp and golden brown. Owners Peter and Cindy Kahl don't try to leave their own trendy mark on German food. They stick to tried-and-true recipes, turning out a consistently blissful schnitzel. Don't miss their sauerkraut, either, tender and bursting with caraway seeds. You can wash it all down with a glass of riesling or one the German or Belgian beers from a selection of nearly twenty. Pure bliss.
