The Germans really have the art of intense eating down pat, and with Oktoberfest upon us, we thought we'd scour the city for the best locations you can find a quality fix of sausages, schnitzels, and perhaps some pork on your fork for good measure.
The German Sausage Hut
Not just limited to sausages (either served in a bun with lashings of cheese/onion/gravy or on a plate piled high with potato salad), you'll also find goulash pies, rissoles and, on Thursdays and Fridays, go all in and get a pork knuckle.
Black Forest Café
This is the real deal. Every traditional dish you could think of, and them some, features on their menu, and it's all pretty darn good. The menu is massive AND they have home made Spätzle, which, FYI, is the delicious love child of egg noodles and dumplings. Note: If you would like a pork hock you do need to give them four hours heads up, but we hear it is well worth the wait.
The German Club
Clearly this is a given. But for something different look to the Sauerbraten. It's a beef pot roast cooked in red wine vinegar, and it is rather good. It's also a bit of given that they'll be going hard in lederhosen clad glory at The German Club this month.
Barvarian Beer Café
Holy dooley there are a whole heap of options on their menu, and, from the classic to the contemporary, you will not be starved for choice. Actually, you won't be starved at all… roasted pork roll with spice apple slaw and crackling anyone? Yes. It comes with fries.
Urban List Note: On the weekends beginning October 11 & 18, head to the RNA Showgrounds for Brisbane's Oktoberfest. There'll be too many savoury and sweet options to choose from, as well as those tasty little Harribo gummy bears too! Check out our full Oktoberfest line up of events here!
