EDELWEISS GERMAN RESTAURANT - 34 E. Ramona Ave., 633-2220,   $$  ★  
This enchanting restaurant serves excellent renditions of German favorites in a fun setting. Portions are hearty, and the housemade tortes are great. Try the Flammekueche. 

MB'S PICK: SCHNITZEL FRITZ - 4037 Tutt Blvd., 573-2000,   $  
The small, strip-mall store is bright and clean, but on the plain side. The food, however, is much better than a place this size has any right to be. The German specialties are savory and scrumptious, beautifully complemented by the baked goods from the Old German Bakery. Dishes not to miss: Hungarian goulash ($7.99), rouladen ($9.99), bratwurst platter ($8.99) and cherry crumble cake ($3.79).

SCHNITZEL KING - 5644 U.S. 85/87, 638-4974   $
This one-man German restaurant reigns locally for its sheer number of schnitzels, including a Hawaiian version topped with pineapple, and the decadent Robber Schnitzel, which is covered in crispy bacon and hollandaise. 

UWE'S - 31 Iowa Ave., 475-1611   $$  
The best place to dig into fried, breaded meats slathered with gravy. Uwe's is short on atmosphere, long on German comfort food. Try the Jaegerschnitzel.
