Salz is located on 115th street and 105 avenue. It’s a block north of Oliver and there’s tons of parking on the street. I don’t often visit this particular area of the city unless I’m going to the bottle depot that’s nearby, or picking up an entire case of hotdogs from Fat Franks. (Protip: their warehouse is in the area and a case of their regular hotdog is I think $65 dollars for 40 last I bought one and you can buy their sausages from there too!).
I came on a Sunday where they tap a cask and have feature menu items. That week their feature was a pork belly and house terrine banh mi, served with pickled carrots, cucumbers, jalapeno, and cilantro.
I got their Brat Supper with their spicy brat, which comes with cheesy spätzle, caraway slaw, & marinated tomato salad for $18. The best part of the supper by far was the spätzle and the brat. It had a mild kick to it and was pretty good. The spätzle was cheesy and delicious. I did find that I was still wanting a bit more after eating this. I saw some other people order the Nurnberger which comes with 6 lil brats, mustard, and pickles for $10, and also people who ordered a side of spätzle which was quite sizeable as well! Next time I go, I’d opt to get those two which amounts to the size price.
I had a bite of the banh mi which was not bad. The baguette was from District which was by far the best part. Nice chew and delicious. I thought that the banh mi could have used a bit more terrine and the carrots could have been a bit more pickled but overall was pretty good.
Sundays are also $1 pretzel days! I had to get one since I’ve been experimenting making my own at home. Comes with house mustard, this was a nice treat and a nice snack.
Overall, I had a good time at Salz. I liked the atmosphere and could definitely see myself coming back to eat some brats and get some drinks with some friends.
