Once in a month I ask my colleagues, which is their favorite dish from the Domklause. But, how is it, when you work in the Domklause? Do you have one favorite on the menu? These questions our restaurant manager Kim Stender will answer.
Kim, how is it with you? What do you eat as a restaurant manager in your own house? I'm sure you already tried the menu up and down or is this a rumor?
Of course I tested every dish on the menu. I need to know exactly, what our guests have on their plates and how every single dish tastes.
If you know all the food, then a favorite has surely relatively quickly crystallized out.
It took a while till I tasted the whole menu and somehow I get stuck in the knuckle.
And why just the knuckle?
The portion is really huge and the meat is very tender and juicy.
But the whole dish is pretty hearty and rich…
This is precisely the delicious and from time to time I like that. I wouldn’t eat knuckle every day for sure, above all this wouldn’t be particularly healthy. But just on these days, when a lot is going on here and I run around all the time, such a big, tender meal is exactly the right.
How does it look for you with the side dish? Which one do you like the most with the knuckle?
I eat the knuckle best as well as you can find it on the menu – with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes. You see it often for example with split pea soup or fried potatoes, but this you find usually more in the south of Germany. The authentic GDR variant tastes best to me. In my opinion it’s just the optimal combination.
That’s, how all dishes in the Domklause, a typical GDR dish. Did you nevertheless know and eat knuckle before?
Yes, of course. We ate this often at home, in North Rhine-Westphalia we know knuckle, too. My parents and siblings also always loved to eat this
And, when did you eat knuckle the last time?
Oh, if I think about it, then it’s nearly half a year ago. And while we talk the whole time about it… I get hungry on knuckle! I’m already sure what I will order later.
Did you get hungry while reading? Maybe you will find a new favorite dish. The cooked pork with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes you find for 10,50€ on the menu of our DDR Restaurant Domklause.
