It was Oktoberfest and my friends and I wanted to go out and enjoy ourselves. We went to my neighborhood biergarten for some food and beer.
We were ordering nice tall glasses of beers first. Then, some food to wash it all down.
I was feeling a little cold that day so I ordered some beef goulash ($7.50) which is a chunky beef stew with spaetzle pasta. The soup was good. I like the warm spices and thickness of the soup. The noodles were lackluster. But they weren't huge part of the dish so I didn't miss it much. The bread helped sop up all the goodness.
We also ordered the sausage party platter ($20) which came with 5 different sausages, spaetzle ($6), and potato pancakes ($6). The sausages were good. They sliced them into smaller pieces then cooked them until the skin was crispy with a nice snap. The spaetzle, again, was lackluster. It looked too similar to plain spaghetti. Completely forgettable. The potato latkes were okay. They were very fried and had a nice crisp to them.
