A lot of people have been excited for the latest opening in Wichita. The new authentic German restaurant, Prost, officially opened at Revolutsia today. My family and I stopped by on to get a first hand look at what you can expect on your visit.

When someone thinks a restaurant in a shipping container, they probably envision a place really small. But the folks at Revolutsia did a great job of putting it all together. It’s made of several shipping containers that provide plenty of seating. There’s capacity for around 100 people and a second-story dining area with a beautiful patio that overlooks Revolutsia.
The menu features many items with names we didn’t even try to pronounce. Who am I kiddding, we gave it our best shot and failed.
Since my nephew was with us, we started off with the pretzels and spundekäse. It was a Bavarian style pretzel with creamy garlic/onion dip and a mustard dip. Everybody really enjoyed the creamy garlic/onion dip. I’m such a huge mustard fan so I opted for the latter of the two options.
For lunch, we had the bratwurst meal, jägerschnitzel (bread and fried pork, cutlet, topped with creamy mushroom gravy served with homemade spätzle & warm red cabbage), and the fleischkäse (grilled slice of Lyoner sausage topped with a sunny side egg served with bratkartofflen and sauerkraut. As for my two year old nephew we ordered a side of pommes aka fries.
The food was great. And a few bites in, we all agreed we would go again. We won’t fake it and act like we know what really good authentic German food is supposed to taste like because we don’t. All we know if the food we had was delicious. The absolute favorite was the jägerschnitzel. It was like a chicken fried steak with a delicious gravy poured over the top – comfort food at its best. The noodles (spätzle) that came with it were the perfect compliment to he pork. I gave a little bit to my family and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
The fleischkäse is also known as baked German sausage and had the texture of spam. What made it much better was the sauerkraut which my brother really loved. I too enjoyed the sauerkraut. The bratwurst meal was alright and very basic. We would definitely recommend a different dish though if you’re wanting to try something a little different than what could be had around town.
We somehow had room for dessert and ordered the apfelstrudel which was a traditional Viennese pastry filled with apples, raisins, cinnamon, and sugar, served with Little Lion Cafe’s vanilla ice cream. Between the four of us, we couldn’t stop and should have ordered two. The apfelstrudel had nice chunks of apple inside it with the cinnamon and sugar elevating the dessert. Having Little Lion Ice Cafe’s vanilla ice cream was like the cherry on top.
It’s great to see another restaurant in town offering food that can’t be had elsewhere. We love unique dishes that can only be found at one restaurant. Prost hits a homerun here and we can’t wait to go back. This was my nephews first foray into really digging deep and trying all sorts of different foods. He pigged out and said “Mmmmmm” more times than I could count. I was so proud of him this afternoon. We had our eyes on the sauerbraten but they didn’t have any this afternoon so that gives us a reason to return.
…..and the final touch:
Here’s their menu.
