For today’s Magical Dining Month recommendation, how about some German fare? Let’s go to Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe in lovely downtown Sanford.
As lover’s of German food know, we have an unfortunate dearth of restaurants that do it well, but Hollerbach’s is one of them. And the cafe’s MagDngMo menu is on the $20 list, which means you get three courses of hearty — and filling — food for a song sung to oom-pah-pah.
My recommendation is to start with potato pancakes, which come in two versions: basic, with sour cream and applesauce, or “gourmet” with smoked bacon and cheddar cheese.
For the entree, two of my favorites are among the choices. I love the wiener schnitzel, here made with a pork cutlet. But I also like the sausage platter. If those don’t appeal to you, have the sauerbraten or the Jaeger schnitzel.
Apple strudel or Black Forest cake are your choices for dessert. (There’s a cheesecake, too, but whoever heard of German cheesecake?)
Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe is at 205 E. First St., Sanford. The phone number is 407-321-2204. You can view the restaurant’s Magical Dining Month menu here, or select another restaurant at the main Web site.
