The best food place in Haymarket, VA is a tiny carry out place. Jack and I go there frequently when we want great tasting food at a very reasonable price prepared in the European continental style. We get the food which always includes an entre complete with a starch, vegetable and hard roll. Then we take it home and serve it on china plates with a nice glass of wine or bottle of beer.
When the weather is nice we like to dish up the food and drinks and head to the patio table to dine by the flower gardens. Here is a plate of roast porkshenk with sauerkraut and roll that I had recently. (That day they ran out of the potatoes so I got a double helping of sauerkraut that has whole peppercorns.) Here Jack has just finished off one large weiswurst (white sausage) and is about to dive into that remaining wurst which is a bratwurst (red sausage). Oh, so good! Here are Jack and Jack saying hello to Fritz, Heinrich Hoffman's brother, before they enter the double blue doors to get our take out food which surely is not your typical take out food.
Jack Aidan likes going inside to visit with the two chefs: Heinrich Hoffman from Austria and Anna Hoffman from Brazil. I think Anna has adopted Jack Aidan as her grandson because she always wants to give him a big hug and kiss and a big homemade cookie! Our Jack also just loves the Black Forest chocolate cake that is sometimes available. I hope I have made your mouth water since it now close to lunch time here in Haymarket. If you are a local person reading my blog go to this site to see what is on today's menu: http://www.alibicatering.com/weddings.html
You will learn that Heinrich is a classically trained chef from Austria who operates not only this take out business but a famous and long running catering business that caters parties for the Washington D.C. power elite like the Mars Family of the Mars Candy Furtune. (Several Mars family members make Forbes 'List of the top ten richest Americans.)
Now I'm going to give you all fair warning. This blog post I would like to hook up to Fishing Guy's My World Tuesday Meme which has its grand kick off today. Whether I accomplish this or not remains to be seen. I'm glad this post doesn't have sound or else you may hear a few uh-ohhs or something a little stronger being said in the process.
Great balls of fire! Grandma figured this out without consulting Grandpa who by the way was making a run to Alibi Catering for lunch. Jack got the stuffed cabbage and I got the pork loin from today's carry out selection. Got to go photograph the food before Jack eats his and mine!
