This German grocery store has a bunch of things on its chalkboard menu - brats, smoked chops, sauerkraut, etc. - but if it’s your first time here, there’s only one thing you need: The Schinkenwurst. It’s a salami, bologna, and Swiss cheese sandwich that weighs approximately three pounds, and the one thing we eat every single time we’re in Big Bear. It comes with their mustard-y German potato salad on the side - which you will make room for, because it’s also fantastic. After your meal, get a bunch of brats to go. They’re $3 apiece, pre-cooked, and just need to be put on the grill to char - they’ll make you seem like a much better grillmaster than you actually are.
