Saxony House: "Let the Saxon way of life simply melt in your mouth."

Tonight I ate at the Saxony House, which has been beckoning to me from across the water in the Stanley Park Rowing Club all weekend.

Live mountain folk music was provided by the house band, which has a German name that there was no way I was going to remember, which according to the Saxony House menu translates as "Legacy-Hunter".

My intention was to compare the Saxony House roast pork and sauerkraut with my dad's, but I ended up eating marinated pork steak on a bun with fried onions and hot mustard, while shifting my focus between the band, speed skating and figure skating.

I was surprisingly still hungry after this, and they let me have a half-order of Bacon "Bemmchen" (breadslices) with onion rings and Schlettauer gherkins. Served on a spread of creamy bacon fat, this is most definitely the star of the Saxony menu. (Also relatively cheap; a half order of three slices was only $3.50.)

I washed these down with a pint of Köstritzer Black beer. It was $9 for a pint, but it's ok because I was also paying for the discovery of a Really Good Beer.
