I tried schweinshaxe (sometimes also known as eisbein, as I understand it) when I was in Germany last August and it was really good. Now here I am, months later, and I could really go for some more of that stuff. I haven't seen it on the menu at German places I've been to in NYC (which, granted, are limited to Lederhosen, Heidelberg, and Zum Schneider), nor is it listed on the online version of the menu at Zum Stammitsch (which people seem to agree is the best German food in the city). Any help about where I might find some?

  1. The Heidelberg Restauarnt lists it on their menu.

    I've never been, so I can't vouch for their quality... but they do serve it.

      Weird - I must've just plain not seen it somehow. Thanks!
