Brotzeit - A Place to Indulge

Brotzeit is a Bavarian expression which depicts a cozy meal complemented by pints and pints of fresh beer. 

With its contemporary new residence along Mid Valley Megamall's outdoor boulevard, Brotzeit serves the specialty cuisine all the way from Germany as well as an assortment of beers from Paulaner. 

I first heard about them from MHB blogger babe Michelle. She loved Brotzeit so much she frequented the outlet and helped boosting their business and publicity. 

Just like what was written on the board, the Schweinshaxe or Pork Knuckle [RM 85] - a term more fondly known among the Malaysians, which is one of the unanimously voted and agreed as Brotzeit's ultimate specialty, set expectations even before I stepped into Brotzeit.

I wasn't disappointed. It's a must-try, especially the DAMN AWESOME & SINFUL crisp deep fried skin. Then again, most of the dish in Brotzeit were like that - awesome yet sinful, but who really cares about it being sinful right? ;)

The Brotzeitflade Speck [RM 30] was a very addictive snack - consists of belly bacon, onions, vine ripened cherry tomatoes, chilli and mozzarella cheese on a thin crust fladenbrot. 

The Käsekrainer aka pork cheese sausages [RM 27] oozes out generous warm melted cheese into your mouth at every bite. They were so good.

Knoblauchwurst aka garlic sausages [RM 38] were served with roasted potatoes and sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is actually braised white German cabbage, quite sourish in taste. Supposed to help with all the sinful meat digestion. 

After blabbering about FOUR sinful dishes, here's one to ease the digestion, besides the sauerkraut (OMG these German names -_-")

Meeresfrüchtesalat (omg omg I had a hard time typing this word) aka Seafood Salad [RM 46] is one damn awesome mixed salad with generous amount of smoked salmon, tuna and prawns.

We also had these, less sinful but equally as good. Loved the eggs and ham :)

As for the desserts in Brotzeit, I'm appreciative by the fact that they are not overly sweet. I simply hate desserts with pounds and pounds of sugar in them. My favourite would be the Bayrische Crème [RM 12], a Bavarian vanilla Cream with chocolate sauce and almonds has texture similar to a panna cotta.


I also find the Kaiserchmarrn [RM 20] awesome. It's a German pancakes cut up, served with sweet plum sauce with real plum bits in it. This is fluffy and taste just right, not too sweet.

The food pricing at Brotzeit is undeniably on the higher end and since this outlet is one recommended place for awesome sinful food and beers, go in a group. Sharing is caring and would definitely save your pockets.

Psst psst. Many asked how us girls managed to maintain our figures when we often indulge in sinful stuff like all the above. Secret will be revealed next so stay tuned!

I'm thinking of making schweinshaxe for my next food adventure. It looks pretty simple.
