GERMAN DINING IN CALIFORNIA IS NO PROBLEM!

In Newbury Park, CA you can enjoy real German food, the restaurant is called Edelweiss and really lives up to its name. In the evening, the old-fashioned German-Americans from the area meet there to play cards at the regular's table and drink beer on tap!
The food tastes great, there are many German dishes such as bratwurst with sauerkraut or goulash with noodles. For dessert you can order German pancakes or a piece of German cake, which are freshly prepared by the pastry chef every day.
We were really impressed with the quality of the food, if you are in the area and want a bit of home. have a look.

On our last visit to California, we made another detour to Germany, without a long flight and time-consuming passport control. In Thousand Oaks, CA, there is a small business called Alpine Deli, with a good selection of imported goods from Germany and Europe. The refrigerated shelves are stocked with a wide range of cured meats such as cooked ham, hunting sausage, yellow sausage and even liver sausage.
Of course, a selection of sweets is also available. Milk and Ritter Sport chocolate, children's chocolate, gummy bears and other German sweets can be found there.
There are even real Nuremberg mulled wine and marzipan.
Oktoberfest is very popular in California!
When we visited the deli there was a sign in the window that you get everything you need for an Oktoberfest party. Since my son lives there (and sometimes misses German food), we decided to surprise his family and some of his friends with such a party. We bought sausages, sauerkraut, rolls and a selection of bread for about 20 people. In addition there were different kinds of mustard and German potato salad.
There is also a nice selection of beer there!
Our party was a hit, everything tasted fantastic. The German potato salad, the sausages and the sauerkraut were delicious and quickly eaten, you just love delicious German food in California.
Of course you can eat in the deli, the selection of sandwiches and salads is plentiful. There are about 20 different varieties, the prices are very reasonable, the sandwiches are huge and they are really fantastic.
I had a sandwich with Black Forest ham, Swiss cheese and German salami on rye bread and Klaus had one with tuna, both were delicious.
The address for the deli is:
Conejo Valley Plaza Shopping Center, 1530 N Moorpark Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360
Of course there are other German stores in the US, maybe Aldi.
But I like the charming flair of a mom and pop shop, as you know it from childhood, that I find at Alpine Deli Thousand Oaks.
