Some Oktoberfest items from Huber's Butchery Bistro
The Oktoberfest menu for Huber's is available. Here's a bunch of stuff we had.
That's the leberknedelsuppn - I don't even know how to even pronounce it. Anyways, it's a veal liver dumpling in a beef broth. Awesome cheesy and livery tasting dumpling. I'd eat this again anytime.
The obazda is a cheese spread with beer. This was topped with paprika and chives, something to go with bread or pretzel. The spread was pretty pungent - it tasted like there was perhaps blue cheese or something aged and slightly funky in it. Not for the cheese-squeamish.
We had grilled pig's ear. Nice crunchy chewy pig ears with sweet mustard.
Dessert was known as zwetschgakuacha on the menu, but after a little searching online, it would probably be a zwetschgenkuchen - a traditional German plum cake. While it looked like it might have been a heavy tart, it was actually a pretty lightweight cake topped with cooked plums with a nutty crumble top. Pretty good stuff.
