I didn't expect to do much of anything for my birthday, but in the early afternoon [personal profile] loracs asked whether I wanted to go out to eat and if I did, where would I like to go? [personal profile] loracs and I have a list of five or six restaurants we would like to try at some point, so I picked one or two. We settled on a place in Alameda called Speisekammer (don't ask me to pronounce it.), we shared a half order of Reibekuchen (potato pancakes) and a half order of Semmelknödel mit Pilzrahmsoße (a dumpling stuffed with bacon in a mushroom sauce). Both were a hit, although I enjoyed the potato pancakes more.

For the entree, [personal profile] loracs ordered Bratwurst Gegrillt (a sausage) with all their veggie sides; butternut squash, brussel sprouts, a broccoli like vegetable that I can't remember the name of and another vegetable I don't remember. She also ordered Spätzle (a pasta) because we both wanted to try it. Of course when I say [personal profile] loracs ordered this and I ordered that, it doesn't imply ownership. We both pretty much ate from each other's plates as we always do.

I got the pork Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein with roasted potatoes and a small salad that went with it. [personal profile] loracs ate most of my salad which was just beets and cabbage. Not my favorite things. I could have had veal Wiener Schnitzel, but since I don't eat veal these days, I stuck with the pork.

Because it was my birthday we did manage to cram down some dessert. [personal profile] loracs ordered an apple strudel with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. I got some crème brûlée. We brought home enough food for at least one more meal maybe two. [personal profile] loracs washed it all down with iced tea. I got a dark beer that was pretty good. I wish I remembered what it was called.

All in all we had a really nice time. A fun, unexpected, sort of adventure for my 55th birthday.
