Hahndorf is in the Adelaide hills area a 30 odd minute drive east of Adelaide city. Traditionally a German village which was established when the area was first settled, it has now become a bustling weekend hotspot for locals and tourists alike. It has one main street which is choc full of specialty shops and eateries, mainly with a German theme.
I was actually super surprised at just how many people where in Hahndorf with many of the restaurants having lines out the door. after walking up and down the street in the stifling summer heat, we ducked into the German Arms Hotel for some tasty German dishes.
Zigeunerschnitzel - Chicken Schnitzel with onion, red pepper and paprika sauce on German rhine potatoes -$22.90 - The most memorable park of this dish was the potatoes and the sauce. The Potatoes was so soft on the inside with a crispy skin on the outside - seasoned perfectly. The sauce thick, rich and tangy with real chunks of tomato, onion, and capsicum. Delicious.
Spencer Gulf mussels - 1kg pot of South Australian mussels with chili, garlic, white wine, tomato, onion and herbs served with crusty bread - $27.90 - A seriously huge pot of mussels. The sauce was of course the best part and I'm pretty sure I soaked up every last ml of that with the bread.
