Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Many good parties are the result of a wedding and Oktoberfest is no different. It all began on October 12, 1810 with the Royal Wedding of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.
To commemorate their marriage, the prince and princess organized a great horse race and other festivities around that event. The decision to repeat the horse races in the subsequent year gave rise to the tradition of the Oktoberfest.
Oktoberfest has taken place in Germany almost every year since then, unless they stopped because of war. Today, people all over the world delight in this event - and that includes Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
The festive Oktoberfest menu includes:
• Potato Cream Soup with Mushrooms, Fine Herbs and Dark Bread Croutons
• Spätzle (homemade) with Duck Confit, Cheese and Austrian Onion rings
• Smoked Sausage with Sauerkraut and Sautéed Potatoes
• Celery Salad with Mushrooms and Sautéed Veal Sweetbreads
• Roasted Duck with Red Cabbage and Dumpling
• Veal Gulash with Spätzle
• Cottage Cheese Strudel with Vanilla Ice Cream
In Germany, special beers are brewed just for the festival, so Kaiser Maximilian is offering Erdinger Weissbier, HB Oktoberfestbier, Benediktiner Weissbier and Bitburger, along with Holandesa and Heineken, Dutch beers.
They also have a fine selection of German wines to accompany your meal, just ask your waiter for suggestions.
This special menu is featured for the entire month and is served from noon to 11 pm at Kaiser Maximilian's Espresso Bar and in the restaurant's main dining room from 5 to 11 pm.
