Helga's German Restaurant and Deli-Aurora Colorado

 
14197 E. Exposition Ave Aurora, CO 80012
 
 
German food is a treat for the tongue.  Although I've only eaten it a couple of times, it's been a delightful sensation each time.

 
Shiloh and I just happened to run across Helga's when we were out an about the other day, so we decided to give it a try.

 
This beautiful mural greeted us as we entered the parking lot.

 
Setting the scene for a delightful lunch date~just me and my girl ;)

 
The staff was friendly.

 
The atmosphere light and cheery.

 
Just right for a lunch out on the town(much better than peanut butter and jelly at home).

 
Even a coo coo clock.  Such fun!

 
Shiloh waited so patiently

 
I decided to have Sauerbraten with Potato Dumplings and Red Cabbage, on the recommendation of our wonderful server Chris(Thank you for your wonderful service).  Who was so kind as to explain in great detail how it was made.  The meat is marinated for 4 days, then braised for 4 hours, then served with this delicious sauce.  Quite a delicacy.  The potato dumplings were a new sensation.  I've never eaten anything quite like it. 

 
Shiloh had grilled cheese with spatzle.
