I have the good fortune to be working in the area near Düsseldorf, Germany and I found this wonderful restaurant in the town of Kempen.  Das Ercklentz is a culinary jewel in the middle of the German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen.  We were walking down the street one night and we decided to have a look at the menu outside the restaurant.  My wife noticed right away that the restaurant offered some vegan choices so we decided to go in and give it a try.  Fabulous!

Ercklentz_SauerbratenOne of my favorite German dishes is Sauerbraten and they make a really good “niederrheinischer” Sauerbraten complete with Red Cabbage (Rotkohl) and potato dumplings (Kartoffelklöse).  I was in my element: my favorite German meal in a lovely restaurant with great service, a nice glass of wine and my wife by my side.

My wife had the Celery (Sellerie) Schnitzel served on a bed of mashed potatoes and endive (Endivienuntereinander).  Wow – what a great dish.  I was able to get a taste before my wife cleaned her plate and it was really good.  Ercklentz_Celery_Schnitzel

If you ever get the chance to visit Düsseldorf, do take the time to drive out to Kempen and enjoy a meal at Das Ercklentz.  I hope you are as charmed by this lovely town and this great restaurant as I was.  Chefs Patrizia, Sascha and Uwe will deliver a great dining experience for you in a warm, friendly atmosphere.  Enjoy!
