Main course: German-style Roasted Pork Leg
The owner of Home Steak learned western cuisine in Germany for more than 10 years. Roasted pork leg is a special dish he adjusted from the german Schweinshaxe after he returned to Taiwan. Carefully selected pork leg marinated, simmered in pork bone soup, and then speedily roasted after being cooling. Every step requires precise timing. The crispy skin and soft, tender meat are gourmets’ favorite.
Salad (comes with the main course)
Selected seasonal carrots, tomatoes, and other fresh fruits and vegetables. Drenched with thousand island dressing or Japanese sesame dressing. It’s refreshing and appetizing.
Soup: onion soup (comes with the main course)
Golden and sweet fried onions simmered with beef bone soup for a day. The ingredients are simple but with chef’s fine skills, the taste is exceptionally rich. Best to enjoy when it’s hot.
