No-doubt sauerkraut

Bavarian goulash, La Trattoria Bohemia

3649 J Street, (916) 455-7803.

It’s heating up, but there are cold, overcast days to savor yet. One of the best places to get comfy and warm up your soul is the casual and charming La Trattoria Bohemia—a hearty soup will soothe any fried-brain-related workday traumas. The Bavarian goulash is a wholesome heap of pork chunks stewed in tomato broth and sauerkraut, and the sides of Czech dumplings and sour cream add some wonderful options for sweetening and sopping up stray juices.
