From traveling on my birthday, we discovered how wonderful Eastern Europe food could be so we were excited go to Bragg Creek to try Bavarian Inn Restaurant. We were here around 3PM and they had to turn people away as they were too busy and booked up! We would never have guessed but we were lucky we were ahead of that little rush.
Once we got seated by the window, we browsed through the menu and saw a few items we would love to try. But, since this was a late lunch/early dinner, we could only eat so much. We started with Goulash Soup which they called it “ungarische gulasch suppe” which was like a hearty beef stew with more liquid component – so it turns it into a soup. The flavours were really developed as you can tell a lot of time went into this awesome soup.
I decided to try their Schnitzel Krustchen not only for their pork loin schnitzel, but for smoked salmon as it’s something I really love! This lovely dish is also topped with a fried egg with red cabbage and potatoes on the side. It’s a hearty meal and to my surprise the red cabbage was relatively sweet, so I really enjoyed it as I don’t love all types of sauerkraut; I was a little worried. I actually cleared everything off on my plate and I was impressed with myself!
My husband enjoyed a Jager-Schnitzel which was also a pork loin schnitzel, but what caught his eye was the creamy mushroom sauce that accompanied the dish! On the side was some spatzle, which is really short noodles or dumplings made of flour. Till this day, he still raves about this dish so obviously he truly loved it!
We had such a fabulous time here as the food was amazing, we even tried to order a slice of their Homemade Black Forrest cake, but they ran out. I was shocked that they ran out at that hour as dinner service hasn’t even started – so hopefully they started baking again! I know I will be back to try other amazing dishes here and even their desserts!
