Essen Zum Fressen

MEIN NAME IST . WHAT'S IN A NAME

ROTER HAHN is German for Red Rooster. SCHWEINSHAXE is german for Pork knuckle which is another word for Eisbein. and FRESSEN is german for gulping down the best food in Clarens!

In der Sage steigt ein roter Hahn aus den Tiefen des Stechlinsees herauf, wenn der Fischer an einer ihm nicht genehmen Stelle fischte, 'rot und zornich', 'und  schlägt mit den Flügeln bis er schäumt und wogt, und greift das Boot an und kreist und kräft, daß es die ganze Menzer Forst durchhalt von Dagow bis Roofen und bis Alt-Globsow hin' 

The legend has it, that there exists a red rooster in the dark depths of the the Stechlinsee. Should the fishermen disturb him in his nest, he starts flapping his monstrous red wings to stir up the waves and drive them back to dry land. Many a man has decided to ignore his warnings, making him furious! The red rooster then comes up to the surface to blow dust and smoke and crow so loudly that it can be seen and heard on all the sees and Menzerwoud, as far as Glosbow.  Since Theodore Fontane, German literary Nobel winner, has written about it in 1898, many scientists have braved the sees to research this legend. Their findings show that it would not make sense in our topography and reality, but in 'another world' the small town on Clarens, at the foot of the mighty Maluti's and Rooiberge, and the Stechlinsee could actually be connected!  From time to time, the same red rooster's noises, smoky clouds and strong winds can be heard and experienced from this small community throughout the surrounding mountains, sending mountain climbers back belolw!

Eat, drink and be merry

At Roter Hahn, our focus is on giving memorable experiences. Annie-the brains behind the food, has been cooking and loving it since 1984. She has put together a mouth-watering german style menu. We serve crispy eisbein with potato fritters, Bratwurst prepared Thuringer style with Rotkohl and Rahmspinat and thick Pork Belly Ribs with home made apple compote. Well, everything is home made, because that is how Annie creates the 'good stuff'!

Peet, the brains behind the Beers, has a collection of fine European drinks to accompany your food. He and Annie has travelled to Bavaria and Belgium to experience the Trappist Brews as well as the Erdinger Beerfest. You can order anything from Paulaner, Erdinger, La Trappe, Liefmans and Belgium Kriek on tap, to a bottle of Rekorderlich, Duvel, Bitburger and DePoes Pilsner, to name a few.
