Zierholz re-run

——-10/02/2012——-

Ok, yes yes, I have been to and posted about Zierholz several times so I’ll make this quick. I really wanted to try their pork knuckle (only available Fri-Sun), although I was still hesitant to order it because I didn’t want to be disappointed just in case it wasn’t as delicious as the mixed platter, which I’ve enjoyed multiple times before.

Kids menu~

Chicken Schnitzel with your choice of either mash potato, garden salad or potato wedges ($12.50). A nice small portions for children, although he still didn’t finish it, I was tempted to help him out. 

Mains~

Slow Cooked Pork Belly – pork belly oven roasted in porter served with red cabbage, mash & jus ($23.00). This was a bit disappointing considering it’s my favourite part of the mixed platter. It looks like ordering just the pork belly, it doesn’t come out as crispy and delicious as the smaller pieces on the platter. The skin was more fatty and chewy rather than crispy.

Zierholz Sharing Platter (min.2 people) Chef’s selection of sausages, pork belly & schnitzel, accompanied by salad & mash ($22.00 p.p) Everyone’s favourites all on one platter, the hard part is trying to get your ‘even’ share when it’s a free-for-all, one platter and one pair of tongs situation.

Pork Knuckle served with sauerkraut, braised cabbage, mash ($26.00). No regrets! So yes, since I’ve had the platter every time I’ve been here I convinced myself ‘this is what I was here for’- oh and the good company . The skin was sooooo crispy that I had to hold my steak knife like a murder weapon and stab it several times before I could penetrate through the top layer. A lot of people told me this was big, but I found myself still a little hungry even after salvaging all the meat from the bone. 

Dessert~

Because I am behind in some of my posts and I forgot my blogging notebook on this particular night, I’m not exactly sure what this was. I think it was a sticky date pudding but instead of the traditional butterscotch sauce, it was served with chocolate sauce with some sort of alcohol… It was ok but I preferred the traditional butterscotch sauce or the apple strudel that I had previously.

The food comes out in a timely manner and the staff is friendly. I can imagine this doing very well at its new location @ University of Canberra.
