Jagerhaus – Das Schnitzel

by Franklin on May 24, 2013

German’s are known for many things, but food, I think, isn’t one of them. Every time I go to Disneyland and exit Ball Road, I see Jagerhaus on the corner of my eye. I always wanted to try it, and ever since I saw their huge slabs of jager schnitzel and ham hocs online, I was bound to go. Never really venturing into German food, trying was an experience. The interior seemed dated, but it added to the old school charm I guess. It was a fun experience, and the amount of food was overwhelming.

Bread was served — regular dinner rolls and what seemed to be pumpernickel to be somewhat exact. Both seemed microwaved to appear steaming hot from the oven. I still ate it because I was hungry. Not much to talk about here…

Jager schnitzel should definitely be Germany’s national dish. Everything about it from the name and taste just oozes Germany. A good jager schnitzel should start off with really good schnitzel. Theirs was perfectly chewy, yet light. Each morsel of dough had the perfect al dente feel. The large slab of pan fried pork steak was perfectly seasoned and tender. Topped with a rich gravy like cream sauce, the dish was heavenly. The addition of the sautéed mushrooms was a nice touch.

I ordered the biggest they on the menu. The haveschweine haxe was it. It was a roast ham hoc with a side of schnitzel and red cabbage. The ham hoc was huge, and the size was quite daunting. Bone in, the meat practically fell off the bone. Though the meat wasn’t too dry, I was sick of it after a few bites. I definitely needed some kind of bread or rice with this dish. This could easily be perfect for a couple, and you’d still have leftovers. The ham hoc was full of flavor, and eating it with the pickled red cabbage and sauerkraut was necessary.

To end things, we opted for the bread pudding. It sounded good and tasted good in my head, but this was better off left in the kitchen. The bread pudding was a cold, solid block of wet bread. The vanilla sauce was basically just milk with a hint of vanilla. The raisins in the bread pudding was unavoidable. The bread pudding at Golden Corral was looking quite nice right about now.

I never really have German food. Jagerhaus has really been on the radar for quite some time for me. Now, whenever I pass by this place when I go to Disneyland, I can finally say I’ve eaten there. It wasn’t really the best I ever had, but it certainly was an experience. The schnitzel was the star here, and the old school charm just makes this restaurant what it is.

Made a special visit here with my friend Marion and drank a glass of Wine before ordering the Chicken. It was a perfect visit on Wednesday for Lunch.
