New German food stand opening at Public Market

The Bellingham Business Journal

A new German food stand called Schnitzel Haus will open Friday Sept. 17 in the parking lot of the Bellingham Public Market along Cornwall Avenue.

Owner Ilse Bublitz, a grandmother who has spent her whole professional life cooking in restaurants in Germany, came to the United States seven years ago to be closer to her two daughters and five grandchildren. She decided to open the food stand because of her passion for food and her desire to share the food she loves with the people of Bellingham.

“I have the recipes and a cooking style that has been passed down from my grandmother, to my mother and now to me,” Bublitz said in a news release. “They are part of a family and cultural tradition and I can’t think of anything I would rather do than create these foods and share them with others.”

This will be her second foray into owning her own restaurant; the first was a two-year stint on Capitol Hill in Seattle.

The menu will be all traditional German foods such as bratwurst, currywurst, German potato salad, gulasch and applestrudel. All of the sausages are gluten free and from animals that have not been given any hormones or steroids. Most of the sausages are imported from Germany.

Schnitzel Haus will be open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m to 6 p.m., Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and then from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
