Last night, before going to the baseball game, we went to the Flying Saucer for dinner. I’d never been there before, and the food (and beer!) was really good!
I tried a flight of German beers, all of which were new to me, by brewer or variety (or both!). I liked them all, but the kölsch was my favorite.
I ordered something off the appetizer menu for my dinner: the Hungry Farmer. You can choose either three or five selections of meat and cheese–I went with three. I had black pepper salami, brie, and cotswold…it was delicious! It also came with a selection of crackers, apple slices, tapenade, mustard, and almonds, which I wasn’t expecting, but complemented the meal perfectly. The menu offered a beer pairing suggestion for each selection, but since I already had my beer flight, I didn’t need to try any of those…maybe another time.
It was the perfect place to eat before a game. It’s literally within a stone’s throw from the stadium, and the types of food offered are just what you want to eat on a game day. We got there before it got too crowded, which I prefer, but it was nice to see that most of the customers there were in their Cardinal red just like we were. I would definitely like to go back and try something new!
