“Nice, traditional German food & drink near the Duesseldorfer Volksgarten”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

Gangels Hof sits at 202 Oberbilker Allee on the corner of Emmastrasse in southern Duesseldorf. Reopened by the current management in August 2010, it's a dark, woody and cozy German pub with stunning food. Their baguettes with krautbutter are enough by themselves, but they're only the beginning.

The house beer is Schluessel Alt, and a fine alt it is Koenigs Pilsener is a draft alternative for those who want something lighter.

I had the Duesseldorfer Senfrostraten - a nicely aged Argentiine steak smothered in crisp onions and a mild but flavorful mustard sauce, with bratkartoffelen and salad. The potatoes were a perfect blend of soft inside and crispy outside, and thoroughly perfused with the bacon they were cooked with.

I also had the Argentinisches Rinderhueftsteak - a little less sensational but still a delight.

The restaurant's manager is behind the bar, pulling beers and engaging with her customers equally in German and English. The food, drink and atmosphere are all outstanding and, at about 3/4 mile walk from the Auszeit Hotel at 71 Aus'm Hennekamp, a reasonable bet for dinner without the guilt of wearing all of it around your waist the next morning if you're a guest there.

Caution: if you're a non-EC citizen, bring cash - as of my visit on 1 November their credit card machine wouldn't honor non-EC cards.
