I ate at Ala’s German Restaurant on North Charlotte Street in Pottstown this evening for the first time. It was so good I wanted to help get the word out about this authentic German restaurant. There is nothing like Ala’s any where in the Tri-County area, that I am aware of. Our waitress was from Germany and I gathered all of most of the staff is from Germany.
The menu is fairly extensive and they do have other items besides German cuisine. There is a kids menu; sandwiches, soups and salads for lighter fare and even German Pizza :)
I ordered bratwurst which comes with sauerkraut and buttered potatoes. Our server asked if I wanted the potatoes or another side so I substituted spaetzle. I received two perfectly grilled brats along with generous portions of sauerkraut and spaetzle. Our server asked if I wanted any sauce on the spaetzle and I opted for a mushroom sauce. All this for $10.99!
My girlfriend ordered Zitronen Schnitzel. Zitronen Schnitzel has a light lemon sauce over it. You can have your choice of pork or chicken schnitzel. Pork is the traditional meat in Germany so she had pork. Shortly after we placed our order you could hear the chef pounding the pork so apparently it’s made to order. She also had a side of spaetzle. This was $11.99. She could not finish all her spaetzle.
Since I made a happy plate, I had to try a dessert crepe. The crepe was made to order and I opted for ice cream and chocolate sauce. It was delicious as well. The crepe was $5.99.
The service was good, the place is clean and the food is amazing. We are certainly going back, sooner than later, to try more items on the menu.
If this sounds like something you would be interested, please help support this local business.
