Münchner Sauerbraten

Slices of tender roast beef topped with a gingery sauce, with a large soft Bavarian bread dumpling and homemade red cabbage. Indulge in a frosty mug of Späten Oktoberfest on draught and finish with a warm apfelstrudel topped with ice cream.

Hard to find. Navigate to the right, up the hill, and around to the back of Granite Hills Center in Hooksett.

Plan ahead, cash only.
