Alpine Villege (Torrance)

By in 17: South Bay, Shopping

DSC00747.jpg German mugs! Went to Alpine Villege today, a little-German+Swiss+Austria area with market, shops, restaurant and cultural events at Torrance. Turns out it’s Oktoberfest right now! The waitress in the restaurant gave us a pack of coupons for 50% discount but as we don’t care for beer so we didn’t go/nor plan to. So why the sudden urge to go there? Because we’ve been cursed by German sauage recently (we’d explain that later ^^;;)…


The Beethoven head statue is quite absurdly stick out there. One of the restaurants is inside the inn, where there’s dance hall and bar. As seen from the photos, the visitors are majority old people.

DSC00738.jpgThe pate (can’t tell what it’s made of) is so good that we ended up eating too much bread. Though it looks like a scope of icecream…


Polish Sausage with Potato Salad and Sauerkraut (fermented cabbage that taste sour) $7.95
Very fat and juicy and quite good


Knackwurst with mashed Potatoes and Sauerkraut $7.95
Taste rather normal…

Alas, the market! Pates, European chocolates~

Giant tin barrels of beer…


More big fat sausages and mustard. What we bought at the market. Haven’t tried yet. ^w^

    The Polish sausage looks extremely good! Sausage definitely tastes better fried/grilled than boiled. Wasn’t there any desserts? Oh you bought so much chocolate, haha.

    Yeah no dessert because we’re too full already, I couldn’t even finish the sausage~ T_T The cappuccino I had was very good though.
