Dish: The Schnitzel Sandwich
Where: Deutschland Downtown, 411 William St., Fredericksburg
Taste: Schnitzel is a large slab of boneless meat thinned with a meat tenderizer before being breaded and fried. At Deutschland Downtown, the meat is pork and during lunch the schnitzel is a sandwich. The pork is juicy, but not at all greasy even though it’s been fried, with the sweet and spicy red curry ketchup giving it a kick. Served on a sourdough-like dinner roll called brotchen, it holds the pork, lettuce and tomato in place. Sides include red-potato salad with pickles and vinegar and potato chips, the only item listed here not made in-house. Pair with a draft of Warsteiner Pilsner and order a side of the sauerkraut, made with apples and white wine.
