I am not a big fan of eating out. I feel that I could cook a meal that is equal to, or better than most of what you find in local restaurants.
I make a few exceptions to the rule and sometimes I am very glad I did.
My family and I went to The Bavarian Chef, in Fredericksburg, VA. The restaurant is located next to the train station, in the old ticket office. It is wonderfully decorated, and you feel like to you have stepped into a Gasthaus in Germany!
Our trip to The Bavarian Chef was to celebrate my Father’s birthday. He passed nine years ago, but we have celebrated his life every year, by eating out and sharing a glass or wine or two in his name.
Our dinner was wonderful, our waiter was attentive and we had enough food for two days!
Please pardon the fingers and cutlery in the photos – everyone was hungry and didn’t have patience for me to take “good” photos!
My Mother had the Pork Shank with Onion Strips.
I had a wonderful Salmon with tomatoes, artichokes and olives.
Big had the Chicken Cutlet and wild rice.
We got a choice of multiple sides. We chose the glazed carrots, purple cabbage, potato dumplings and creamed corn.
If you are ever in the Fredericksburg, VA area, I would suggest you stop by The Bavarian Chef and give it a try. You will be glad you did!
Oh yeah, let me know you are in town and I will join you!
