Retired & Loving It
- Sep 5, 2019
I am going to Hot springs this weekend with my son and his girlfriend. He says there is a pretty good German restaurant there, I am looking forward to it. I would try going to one in New New Braunfels but it would be over a 6 hour drive for me so that is out.Funny you mention the pretzels. While I was working the renfest years ago a guy was all excited about the soft pretzel that my boss was the only vender to sell. (Protected food items, no one else can sell) This old guy was from Brooklyn, NY and was a beat cop. He ate them on the beat & since retiring could not find a decent soft pretzel. I gave hime the name of the pretzel company Texas Twist & the wholsalers information. I grew up eat hard pretzels and not a big fan of soft.
When I became an apprentice meat cutter I had t start out in the slicing deli & seafood. We were bringing in Unsinger brats & knockwurst, which I grew up eating. We also had Boars Head brats & knocks. The big difference was Insinger products were bulk in 5 pound boxes& went bad fast compared to Boars Head in cryovac packages.
I to like red cabbage &German Style potato salad. Jars of either are sporadic at best. I'm really jonesing for bagels from the New York Bagel & deli. Houston is famous forit's internation food scene. but always lacked German places. Everyone rants on the German food in New Braunsfel, but I never had it.
