Oktoberfest Menus,Events,Food Parties...
I'm looking for Bratwurst,Bierwurst,Bockwurst,Rouladen,Red Cabbage,Potato Salad,stuff simmered in beer,seasonal Oktober beers,Black forest cakes etc.
Of course a bonus would be being served by German girls in "traditional garb" but if the food's good I can stomach having it brought to table by a husky German man named Horst...but only if the food is exemplary.
The Oktoberfest menu for Bakehouse may be found here: http://www.austinbakehouse.com/images...
The site confirms that they have several German beers and wines, and have added more for Oktoberfest, but the only draft option mentioned on the homepage is Spaten Oktoberfest (four dollars, 20 oz.).
Having never dined there, and having read mixed reviews, I'd be curious to hear if anyone tries the Oktoberfest offerings.
I did Oktoberfest at the Bakehouse last year. Had the Wiener Schnitzel. It's like all the food there. It's OK, but not great. I got my $12 worth. The red cabbage is very sour and the warm German Potato salad was just OK.
If it gives you any indication, the Bakehouse was a finalist to be put on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares but did not get picked.
figured this was as good a time as any to bring up Oktoberfest specials in/around Austin
