[quote=“olm”][quote=“sandman”]I wonder if he does bretzels with the salt crystals on them. And some weisswurst. And some sweet mustard. And a glass of weissbier.
Best. Breakfast. EVER.[/quote]
So definitely next time I’ll try Wendel’s Weisswurst instead (I asked Michael what’s the difference, and it’s mainly that the veal is replaced by pork for cost reasons, same as with the Canadian stuff I bought) and check how his Bretzeln are when fresh (I only had several hours old so far, when a coworker brought some for me - and they were good, but not very good). I’ll report back with news - also on the service [/quote]
Oops, forgot to report back. So I only got the white sausage they had packed in the store, didn’t try the one in the Bistro. In my opinion it was way inferior to the Canadian ones you get at CitySuper. I hope I remember this one right, though, since I don’t see any white sausage for sale in their online shop
The Bretzeln I bought there were the real deal with salt, although they were not really fresh - at least by the time I arrived home and tried one. I fear the only way to get really fresh Brezeln in TW is to make them ourselves…
Recently I also happened to have a nice dinner there, and had a very positive experience. The service was good, so was the Bratwurst & Sauerkraut & Kartoffelbrei that one of us had. The cheese platter and cold cuts platter were excellent! I don’t really like the standard bread that comes normally very much, though (TWese obviously prefer it), but the server suggested that I order a Kosacken Loaf from the bakery to go with the plates. This, together with the dark Warsteiner (thanks god I had a driver who doesn’t drink), was pretty damn good I don’t need western food often, but once in a while a good bread with meats & cheese is nice. (The rest of the bread I took home).
Also it seems Wendel’s updated the webiste: wendels-bakery.com The German version is still not working, though. And I wonder if the page under “Bistro” claiming that in 2006 they opened another branch in Takashimaya… Japan I guess - or is it referring to “Takashimaya department store” in Tienmu that Google seems to know?
Anyway, I heard from a friend that Wendel’s is soon opening a new shop near SYS Memorial Hall - which would be great for those people who want to get the bread, but not travel to Tienmu every time. I didn’t see anything about that on the website, but I’ll keep my eyes open
