The Sandwich Diaries ~ Das Good!

Oh, Dunderbak, Oh Dunderbak,  How could you be so mean? To ever  have invented the sausage meat machine? Now all the rats and pussy cats will never more be seen, they’ve all been ground to sausages in Dunderbak’s machine. Back in the late 80’s I ran Mr. Dunderbak’s,  a German Delicatessen in Marietta. I adored the place. It was cheesy, kitschy, and everything you’d expect in a “Disney-gone-wrong” kind of theme restaurant. But, for everything that was wrong with the atmosphere – we had excellent food… an extensive deli.. and at that time…items you just couldn’t get anywhere else. I carried authentic German meats and sausages, superior cheeses and a full line of imported beer. I still think about our Reuben Sandwich sizzling on the griddle and a slow cooked pot of German Potato Salad…and drool. I thought today I’d just treat us all to a trip to Germany – ish  … So crank up the polka music, donne your Lederhosen, and dust off that tacky beer stein you bought in Helen. Es ist Zeit …
