Schimdt’s (San Francisco: Mission)

By in 04: SF+Bay Area, Favorite Food Entries

Schimdt’s is the other popular German restaurant in town (the other being Suppenkuche). It is in the Mission area hence the younger and hipper crowd.


Their interior has a colder and slick look, as compare to Suppenkuche‘s warm and cozy modern rustic tavern vibe. But I found Schimdt’s having a more of a opening space because of its high ceiling. Their menu has more smaller plates (including cheese plate, sausages) and less heavy dishes.


Pea Pancake with house cured salmon, chive sour cream $9  Wow this is really delicious! It’s more interesting tasting than Suppenkuchen’s potato pancake (albeit yummy way). The pea pancake was not pasty nor beany at all, it’s light and crispy. The house cured salmon is meaty and tasty.


Veal Schnitzel à la holstein $16 fried egg, white anchovy fillets, capers, cauliflower and leeks überkrustete. My fried egg didn’t turn out as pretty as some other table’s, but the Veal Schnitzel is very good – tender, juicy. Though it does get a bit same-y after awhile if you eat this all by yourself.


Smoked Pork Loin. One bite of this and you’d opened your eyes and go ‘wow’! It’s incredibly tender, flavorful and juicy. It has a nice smokey depth that you won’t get bored with it.

I love this place much more than Suppenkuche. The vibe here is fun and lively despite the black, slick interior. I came back here three times with friends and always go for the Smoked Pork Loin.
