Lunch @ Zierholz UC

Zierholz is a Canberra success story. After a long career as a scientist Christoph Zierholz took the plunge into small business about eight years ago, starting a microbrewery in Fyshwick. You can now buy his beautifully crafted European-style beers at a range of venues around Canberra, and the family also runs two restaurants, one adjacent to the brewery and one at the University of Canberra (UC).

Andrew and I have been taking German classes lately (why? why not!) so we took ourselves to Zierholz UC today for a delicious and hearty German-themed lunch. You can download the menu here. We went with two friends, and we all enjoyed our meals!

Two of us ate:

Crackling roast pork belly served with creamy 
mash, braised red cabbage and apple sauce

while the others had:

Pork belly pizza (yes, really), and

Footlong kransky roll (uh huh!)

The food was fabulous and the portion sizes were generous ... perhaps a bit too generous, given that lunch was about seven hours ago and I still feel full! We're lucky to have this great local business in our midst.
