The other day I did a post about the Dutch Kitchen, a Mennonite-owned and operated full-service restaurant tucked away within a larger business outside Bainbridge, Ohio. I think the restaurant is a real find. I forgot that I had picked up a full-menu, so I wanted to post it here. Even if you never get to go to this place, the menu offers some great culinary cultural insight into the Old Order Mennonites. Very basic food.
The biscuits and gravy are probably amazing and look at that Thursday special: ham balls.
Some good, good looking stuff there and what is not on this menu, but offer it: pie. Lots of pie varieties to top off your meal.
As I said in my original post, this isn’t a place to drive 3 hours to go eat, BUT, well, take that back…the whole area around SR 41 is worth driving a long distance for. I would’t drive 3 hours just to eat at the Dutch Kitchen, but to take in the other stuff around it: the Mennonite produce auction, JR’s General Store, and Country Crust Bakery, absolutely!
