Food: Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant @ Bangsar Shopping Centre

German food is one of my favourites because I'm a big fan of sausages. Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant is definitely not a foreign name for German cuisine in Malaysia and they have outlets at Mid Valley, Sunway Pyramid and Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC). 


Last weekend, I was delighted to be invited for a review at the BSC outlet and I was introduced to so many different German food. It's not all about sausages only at Brotzeit. For the unitiated, 'brot' means bread and 'zeit' means time, therefore when put together the restaurant's name stands for bread time.



The bar where you can enjoy your glass of fine German beer while admiring the beautifully decorated bar counter.


The outdoor space for those who prefer to dine under natural sunlight or moonlight.

We were served items from the breakfast menu, lunch specials, bar bites, core menu and of course, desserts. So, feast your eyes on these picture perfect dishes. Well, just make sure you have a handkerchief with you to wipe away those drools. :)

BREAKFAST MENU



Brotzeit Signature Breakfast (RM 32.50) - available daily until 3pm
This is a good choice for those who prefers a filling breakfast. It comes with a combination of hot and cold; hot (two farm fresh fried eggs, strips of streaky bacon and two nuremberger sausages on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes) and cold (two open sliders of honey baked ham, belly bacon, emmenthal and cream cheese on a bed of multi-corn bread). This breakfast set comes with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea.




Hangover Breakfast (RM 30.50) - top up RM 5.50 for a short glass or Radler
This choice of breakfast is pretty special as it is only available on Sundays & public holidays until 3pm. It has a cheeky name and as the name suggests, the combination is great to cure a hangover especially after a party night out on Saturdays. This set consist of farm fresh fried egg, smoked salmon, strips of gypsy belly bacon and a bowl of beef goulash soup with a laugen bread roll. 

LUNCH SPECIALS

The lunch specials are served from 11am to 3pm daily except on Sundays and Public Holidays. Each comes with a free ice lemon tea and prices start at RM16. There is a lunch card promo and every lunch ordered is entitled to one stamp and after the 4th, 8th and 12th meals, there is a food favour reward! 


Pork Chili con Carne with German Egg Noodles (RM 16.00)
Personally, I found the egg noodles are pretty similar to our regular 'pan mee'. But, the difference is that, this has a slightly stickier and bouncy texture to it because its made from eggs. It's a bit bland to eat just the noodles on its own, so mix it with some pork chili con carne and it will enhance the flavour of the noodles.


Gypsy Belly Bacon Carbonara (RM 17.50)
This was a milder, less creamy version of carbonara. It was made using the same German egg noodles and some bacon was added in it. You may choose to add on a soup for RM 5.00 or green salad for RM 7.00. With any add on, you will enjoy a free dessert of the day.

BAR BITES


Mini Brotzeit Platter (RM 35.00)
A good choice for a mid day snack; when you're craving for something to munch on, this is great. I love cheese, so I really enjoyed this platter which comes with Gouda & Ementhal Cheeses, cold cut cuts of belly bacon, and honey baked ham plus 3 spreads, bacon, cream cheese and pork liver pate, topped with some pickles and olives.



Pigs In Blanket (RM 20.00)
These pork cheese sausages were wrapped in gypsy belly bacon and seared to perfection. It comes with a side of spicy wedges.


Spicy Chicken Sausage (RM 17.00)
Spicy chicken sausages sauteed  with onions and peppers in a spicy chilli/tomato marinade

CORE MENU


Crispy Chicken Salad (RM 44.50 - regular, RM 30.50 - large)
Crispy chicken strips on a bed of salad greens with potato salad, drizzled with house dressing and garnished with sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumber and semi dried tomatoes. This bowl of heavenly goodness is a great appetizer before your main course. The greens are imported and of the highest quality, so it's freshness is guaranteed as well.



Signature Pork Knuckle (RM 99.00)
This is known as Schweinshaxe in German; with either a roasted ham hock or pork knuckle and this is pretty popular in Bavaria. Here, at Brotzeit, their pork knuckle are oven roasted till crisp and served with homemade beer-infused gravy. As we were snapping away, we could hear crackling sound all over the dish. It is made with lots of detail especially the flower design from the pork skin. There are some sides of potato salad, pickles & sauerkraut to go with the pork knuckle. The meat was quite tender and the skin was so crispy, perfection indeed!

DESSERTS


Sweet & Savoury Duo (RM 29.00)
Chocolate coated bacon with cream, served with sliced strawberries and kiwi. This is something different, especially with combination of salty and sweet from both the bacon and chocolate.

For an authentic German experience, I would recommend you to look no further and head over to Brotzeit.
