The Salty German is a family owned food trailer that specializes in bringing truly authentic German (street) food to Wimberley. Deanna Ayres and her husband Luke, a Wimberley native, take great pride in not only bringing authentic dishes but also insist on sourcing ingredients from local, German bakeries and butcheries. About 90% of the food served is made from scratch and cooked fresh daily.
A little history:
Deanna grew up in a small town of 3000 people in Neckarburken, Germany. Her father is a American Soldier and her Mother a German Mental Health Nurse. She grew up with her parents, 2 sisters, and grandparents in a multi-generational house where she learned to cook traditional foods from scratch by both her Oma and her Mama whom she credits for her inspiration after rediscovering her love for cooking when she started making traditional foods from home for her children and local family like her family taught her.
Her family has always grown their own fruits and vegetables that were used to cook fresh food daily. Her family taught her the importance of fresh ingredients for health and taste reasons. While she does not have her Opa's green thumb, Deanna also believes in the importance of fresh ingredients and will continue this tradition at The Salty German.
So what's the good food?
Some of Deanna's favorite foods (that you'll also find at The Salty German) are Schnitzel & Spätzle, Fleischkäse with onions and a sunny side up egg, Currywurst, and German potato salad. In the future she wants to bring more German foods she grew up with like Kartoffelpuffer, Rouladen, and Gulasch.
Other favorites include Green Bean Salad, Cucumber Salad, Brotchen, and German Apfel Strudel for dessert.
Stop by, say hi, meet the family and eat some home cooked food and experience a little taste of heaven.
