Learn these, or you'll order schnitzelbank

The menu at Hofbrauhaus is full of "Sch" words. Make sure you get them straight before you order. You certainly wouldn't want to get a schnicklefritz instead of a schnitzel.

Match the German word with its translation:

A. Schnitzel

B. Schnitzelbank

C. Schnickelfritz

D. Schweinefilet

E. Schmankerlplatte

F. Schweinshaxe

G. Schweinsbraten

H. Schinkenbrot

I. Strudel


1. A naughty boy (see the words to Ist das nicht ein Schnitzelbank)

2. Roast pork loin

3. Pork, pounded thin, breaded and sauteed.

4. German dark rye bread

5. A cobbler's bench that rather mysteriously provides the inspiration for a children's song

6. Pork shank, roasted with the skin on

7. Tasting plate (At Hofbrauhaus, it's a smoked pork chop, roast pork, roasted half chicken, mashed potatoes, fried cabbage and sauerkraut)

8. Pastry of apples rolled inside thin dough

9. Pork tenderloin


A: 3

B: 5

C: 1

D: 9

E: 7
