Hofbrau Munchen

Belgian beer hall/cafe in Lincoln Road.

What we had:

I had wurst platter #130--fresh pork sausage with homemade sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. The wurst was nicely flavored and juicy, the kraut was mild and a little like heaven, and the potatoes were buttery and creamy.

This was just what I needed. Food to comfort the soul. I don't know if it's my ancestry (heavy on the Polish and German), or if it was my Midwest childhood, but the second the mercury dips below not burning, I crave potatoes, sausage & cabbage down to my core. This meal (along with the pierogis I had last week) hit the spot & filled that void.

My DH had the bratwurst sandwich with fries, which he enjoyed.


I've said it before, and I'll say it again--Lincoln Road is a great place to go for a leisurely people-watching lunch.


Not bad. They make the servers wear Bavarian beer girl garb.

Overall impressions:

Not bad at all. It's Lincoln Road, so a bit on the expensive side for a lunch (both the platter and the sandwich were $14). With soft drinks, we ended up spending about $50. Average for Lincoln and still exactly what I needed.
