Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 24 of 121: The Stein Haus — on eastern Portland’s 82nd Avenue just north of SE Division Street — offers an unusal food item: a German burrito. According to their menu:
“Our burritos are made with sautéed onions, garlic, spätzle (knöpfli), kraut, mustard aioli and Muenster cheese wrapped in a whole-wheat tortilla with your choice of meat — bratwurst, chicken schnitzel, tofurkey, smoked bacon sausage, sauerbraten.”This burrito is made with one of those extra-large tortillas, so it is pretty big and quite filling. I had mine with bratwurst. The kraut is not sauerkraut, but red cabbage that seemed to pickled but was still crunchy. The burrito had a pretty dominant garlic taste from the aioli and additional garlic. I think the spätzle has a green tint from the aoili, or else it was cooked with herbs. I’m pretty sure the orange-colored substance on the very right is the rind of the cheese. The strange combination of ingredients worked a scrumptious magic — I’m looking forward to enjoying it again!
