German-Style Crispy Pork Shank at Bergblick

German-Style Crispy Pork Hock

We were in Pagudpud today and we couldn”t leave without eating at Bergblick. Sometimes it’s not just about wonderful food, but the warmth and realness of the people behind a restaurant.

Chef Detlev Cotte always springs new surprises. He suggested baked pork leg which is crisp on the outside and beautifully succulent on the inside, a bit like crispy pata minus the grease, and more like lechon, but sweeter and tastier. This German-style crispy shank is a must-try. I like the meat that sticks to the bone, I ate last:)

His sauerkraut platter, besides the Bergblick pan, is always on our list, but we only had room for a snack. And that snack turned into a big meal. Who can resist strawberries in this sizzling weather?

Sauerkraut PlatterUntitledWaffles with Strawberries

His waffles are so nice, dense, unlike soft cake, with a teeny weeny bit of chewiness to it. He made me a fresh strawberry soda:) Thanks, Bergblick!
