My first taste of Loreley was actually at the Get Real NY Craft Beer & Food Festival, but it had been on my list for a while for a few reasons: it's just a short walk from my apt, it's a beer garden (these are popular in the Burg), and they have spaetzle and sausage! Who doesn't love some good sausage? And beer? I'm not a beer connoisseur, but I'm getting better with it, and thank God because I ordered a LITER. Pics below – I literally felt like I was getting a workout trying to lift that thing.
The food at Loreley was good – maybe a bit on the salty side, but I like salt so it could have been worse. Hal and I got soups, wings and pretzels as appetizers; an odd combination, but WINNING nonetheless. Can't go wrong with a soft German pretzel and some mustard, and the German-style hot wings, which were really good. More sweet than hot, but I liked them.
I tasted the sausage platter (shut up) when I was at the festival and I had about three servings of it, so I knew that was what I wanted again. Helping no. 4 perhaps? I let out a little giggle when the waiter put down the plate because well…I have the sense of humor of a 12 yr old boy. Hal got the spaetzle, which you can get with or without bacon. Umm. I will let you take a stab as to what we chose for that one. Oh and there was cheese too. Mmmm. Spaetzle is like an egg noodle/pasta typically served with meat. Only downside here was the cheese – it should have been a little creamier.
Shocked that I could still fit more food inside me, we got dessert, which was Apfelstrudel mit Vanille sauce. I hope I don't have to spell that one out…I think it's pretty obvious. In terms of taste and looks, imagine a GIANT McDonalds apple pie drizzled with a sweet vanilla cream sauce. Don't take the McDonalds comparison as a bad thing, I actually always kind of liked their apple pie. Was it a sugarbomb? Totally. But if you can handle it, go for it. I plan on going back when the weather gets warmer since they have a nice outdoor area. Sunshine, spaetzle and sausage…I can't wait!
Remember the best love is to love others unconditionally rather than make demands on them.
IT’S RALLY A VERY GOOD ARTICLE, I LEARN SO MUCH THING FROM IT, THANKS. YOU ARE REALLY A NICE PERSON!!!
everyday for tomorrow
We met at the wrong time, but separated at the right time. The most urgent is to take the most beautiful scenery, the deepest wound was the most real emotions.-
