Paola – Beethovens #9
Beethoven’s #9 is a musical masterpiece. It’s also a pretty darn good place to eat! This fantastic mother/daughter-owned, German restaurant is Located at 2 W. Piankishaw St., Paola, Kan., and is open Thursday through Sunday for lunch and supper. I like this place so much that I’d consider it one of my top picks for pork dishes in Kansas!
The menu features no less than seven pork schnitzels (thinly breaded and fried pork loin), and several sausages. They also serve a multitude of homemade desserts and a full menu of Bavarian beers! A visit to Beethoven’s #9 is like a trip to Europe at your table!
I stopped for dinner during a motorcycle trip through Eastern Kansas, and I’m sure glad I did. My meal consisted of the Cordon Blue schnitzel (because what goes good with pork…ham, of course!), two sides and a delicious over-sized roll. I couldn’t finish it all, and nobody has ever accused me of being little….so that says something about the colossal size of the meal. Next time I’ll be sure to eat dessert first, so I have room to enjoy it, and then will try a sausage sampler.
I cannot wait to make a return trip. I hope to see you there!
Until next time,
