If you want incredible schnitzel, make the pilgrimage to Milwaukee and go to Maders and Karl Ratzsch's. There's no better schnitzel in the country.

It's a popularly held notion that Americans simply eat too much. Last year in Germany I ordered something called "farmer schnitzel" at a restaurant in Frankfurt. The server brings it to me and it's an absolute mountain of food- heaping schnitzel, covered in cheese, sauteed onions, and of course, (why not) bacon. I ate about 1/3 of it. The server at the end of the meal said, "What, you Americans don't like our food?" I replied that it tasted fine, just that it was enough for two people, perhaps three. Upon hearing this, the server scolded me, pointing to her left, where two angular young ladies had cleaned their plates. Since then I've been more observant, and I disagree completely that Americans eat any significant food volume differences than other nations.

Just got back from Austria. Had Schnitzel in a couple of different places and it was fabulous. I was also surprised to see how much they eat. Way more food than I was used to.

Whenever I am on the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix I try to stop at the Winzerstube for lunch or dinner. This past weekend I had their Jagerschnitzel Hochwald with spaetzel. The schnitzel came to the table piping hot and the crust was perfect. The seasoning spot on. Huge portion served with red and white saurkraut. I ordered their goulasch with spaetzel to take home for another day. There is no cuisine better than freshly prepared German food with a big glass of beer.

Years ago as a student in Wien I enjoyed wiener schnitzel every Sunday prepared in the neighborhood restaurant on Gentzgasse where I lived. I'm waiting for the food truck in Minneapolis that will serve grilled wursts, pickles, mustard and a hunk of brown bread. Alas, I've found no restaurant in the Twin Cities serving real Wiener schnitzel and not pork. I did see Aldi'scarry pork schnitzels produced in Germany. Not the real thing, but I can hope.
