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.

Mandelhörnchen

Gooey chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside, these tasty pastry crescents are made with marzipan and sliced almonds---then both ends are dipped in dark chocolate. Buy their award winning German soft pretzels to snack on in the car.

Plan ahead, cash only.
