Two Goblets

I've been reading Jewel Staite's food blog ( lately, and it's inspired me to try something I've been toying with since I started this blog: writing a restaurant review. And so, I'd like to introduce you to my favourite restaurant: Two Goblets.

Two Goblets is a tiny Austrian establishment in the Downtown Core of Kitchener, taking up the main floor of a house. They are open for lunch and dinner, and it is a good idea to make a reservation, due to the limited seating. The walls are frescoed with scenes of the wine-making process: planting, harvesting the grapes, etc.

The menu consists of various European dishes, especially schnitzel; they have a million different kinds of schnitzel. Slices of delicious marbled bread are provided while you wait for your meal. Most meals come with your choice of either the salad or the soup of the day. The soups are always incredible, with lots of dill. The meatball soup is my favourite. The salad, simply made of iceberg lettuce with tomato and cucumber slices, is divine thanks to to the dressing; they won't tell me what it is, but I suspect it's just oil, vinegar, and sugar...

Portions are generous here; you'll often end up with leftovers. Aside from all the schnitzels (I haven't yet tried them all), they do some great perogies. My favourite dish there, however, is definitely the Hungarian goulash: a mild (or spicy, if you like) meat sauce poured over delicious spaetzle.

Yummy bread.

So good!

The 'Prague' schnitzel, a classic schnitzel covered in scrambled eggs and ham.
