Five best restaurants for a schnitzel fix

You're darn Teuton! Schnitzel at Cafe Berlin.
With seventeen years and three homes under its belt, Café Berlin (which I review this week) has become synonymous with German food in Denver (the jagerschnitzel is particularly noteworthy). But this restaurant is not the only place in town serving spaetzle and sauerkraut.

Here are several more options for getting your schnitzel fix (listed in no particular order).

4. Golden Europe
(6620 Wadsworth Boulevard, Arvada)

At Golden Europe, you might feel like you're on a whirlwind bus tour of Central Europe, with three large platters -- the German plate, Austrian plate and Czech plate -- showcasing the greatest culinary hits from each country. Look for wiener schnitzel, roast duck and veal bratwurst on the German plate, along with German potato salad and sauerkraut. If it's spaetzle and red cabbage that you're after, try the Austrian plate, which features identical proteins, minus the duck.

Just a nomenclature note.  Wiener Schnitzel is by definition made with veal.  Many of the places mentioned here replace veal with pork (Sobo 151 and Budapest Bistro, for example).  Thus, they are making very tasty breaded pork cutlets but not true Wiener Schnitzel.

Why isn't Cafe Prague listed?  It has a nice menu and the food is well-prepared.  Much as I like Karl's, how many of us can get there for lunch on a weekday?

I grew up with schnitzel, it's my number one comfort food, especially if it's accompanied by spaetzle and red cabbage. I second Sobo 151, and am disappointed that Budapest Bistro wasn't included, their's is just as good, if not better than anyone on this list.

 

Euclid Hall's is good in a pinch, but just not real schnitzel with its panko crumbs.

I hope you didn't limit your search to German places only. Schnitzel is well known across Central Europe. You'll find it on Polish menus listed as "sznycel". I would think Cracovia, Polished Tavern, Belvedere and Cafe Prague would be contenders as well.

No mention of Sobo 151?  That's a huge miss!

 

Oh, and davebarnes is a douche.

Jägerschnitzel and not Jagerschnitzel

Umlaut is important

 Agree that Sobo 151 has to be on this list. I think Cafe Prague in Morrison also belongs on the list.

 @theglobalguy Yep, I clicked through the pages expecting to see Sobo 151. Sad fail for Gretchen.

 @davebarnes

 If you can't use an umlaut, then the American spelling is Jaegerschnitzel.
