Prostit to Waltraud and Albrecht Breig!
The plus side is that their daughter and Waltraud's two sisters will be working there, so some continuity. Time will tell how things go. Many Canadians knew it well during the Canadian military days in Lahr. Quite a few have returned for a visit and headed to that same Gasthaus for their well-remembered chicken. On one occasion, three Canadian men ordered two half chickens each and I think one of them, a third!
Oh, how I would miss it--as would many others if it were not to be served! For now, though, it will continue to be so as far as I know.
My table below in the foreground with a view of the corner table where Hans and I always sat when we went together.
Three Canadian friends visiting from the USA, Holland and Nova Scotia, Canada: Jo, Chris and Jean. They all loved the chicken and the wine.
Below, Hans' choice one evening: Wurstsalat and Bratkartoffeln
I always ordered their green salad, but many ordered the mixed salad which included various salad ingredients.
Waltraud makes the dressing for the salad herself and also sells it. She will continue to do so. We use it at home and buy no other now. One can purchase it at the Edeka in Ettenheim and also in several other Edeka stores in the area, including in Lahr. It is called "Salatsosse Zur Linde." The green tree on the label, of course, is a Linden or lime tree. Whether the label stays the same only time will tell.
Below, a perfectly poured beer for Hans. The family-run brewery in Schmieheim is situated just down the road from the Gasthaus in Wallburg.
Occasionally, as shown below, I have a Weissherbst Schorle--half wine and half sparkling mineral water.
Happy retirement Waltraud and Albrecht!
