Our porky feast continues, and this time fall on Deutsches Haus German Restaurant & Bar, a cozy and small restaurant & bar located in Jaya 33. Here, you got to sit back and enjoyed a superb meal with a pint or two of your favourite beer, mood unaffected from the hassle of the street nearby. Not to forget, they also have a very big TV screen for you to enjoy the most awaited sports in 2012, the Euro Cup.
Schinken Salad (RM19)
We started off with some healthy greens which was the Schinken Salad. The mixed greens were appetizing from the honey mustard dressing, and topped with grilled streaky bacon, tomatoes, onions and gherkins for extra flavors and texture.
Farmer’s Soup (RM19)
We were then served with the Farmer’s Soup, which was the potato and leek soup with crispy pork bacon and sausage. We actually felt grateful as we had the chance to get a twist from the normal mushroom soup, and more importantly was, the soup was really nice. Thick, creamy with chunks of bacon bits and a long sausage that surprised you with the high quality Emmentaler cheese filling.
Sausage Platter (RM88)
One of the highlights in the porky feast would be the sausage platter served with sauerkraut, potato salad, senf, garlic mayo, and habanero mayo. Needless to say, the portion was huge enough for two person, or more if your groups were small eaters. Came in 8 types of sausages namely the Bauernwurst, Knackwurst, Weisswurst, Hahnchenwurst, Thuringer, Bratwurst, Nurnberger Bratwurst, Bockwurst, and Chorizo, they were all of different size, colour, flavor and texture, but all sinfully delicious.
Bauernwurst – German Farmer’s sausage, which was also called “German Kimchi” by the restaurant.
Knackwurst – Smoked garlic pork sausage.
Weisswurst – White sausage made with veal and pork. It had a smooth and soft texture, very suitable for elder people.
Hahnchenwurst – Spicy chicken sausage.
Thuringer Bratwurst – Thuringer pork sausage.
Nurnberger Bratwurst-Original Nurnberger pork sausage. The sausage was rough, very ground, very homemade.
Bockwurst-Smoked Pork with Emmentaler cheese sausage.
Chorizo- Spanish pork sausage. Goes well with German beer, with preserved spiced like taste.
For those who fancy only a certain flavour, you can order accordingly, and will be served with side dishes of sauerkraut, potato salad, potato dumplings, horseradish mashed potato or pan fried potato. For those who want to try all, this platter would be your choice.
How could we leave a German Restaurant without trying their pork knuckle? So we tried out two types of pork knuckle, the Bierhaus Pork Knuckle and Garlic Herbed Pork Knuckle.
Bierhaus Pork Knuckle (RM59)
Bierhaus Pork Knuckle was the traditional version of pork knuckle, to fulfil the palate of those who like original taste. It was served with sauerkraut, potato dumplings and senf. The meat was moist, smooth and mind blowing with the crispy skin. Another thing that caught our attention was the meatballs-like potato dumpling, which actually tasted like a tougher and chewier version of Malays’ ketupat. =)
Garlic Herbed Pork Knuckle (RM59)
Garlic Herbed Knuckle was the “enhanced version” of original pork knuckle as it was roasted twice, where the second time was roasted with garlic and herbs. The pork knuckle was equally delicious, with extra aroma from herbs and a garlicky taste.
Baby Back Ribs 2 Ways (RM82)
After the sausage platter and pork knuckle, we were continued pampered with Baby Back Ribs 2 Ways. Again, we wanted to say that it was very very big portion. The pork ribs were beautifully barbequed in two way styles, which were the pineapple BBQ sauce and jalapeno peach sauce. The lighter side was done in peach sauce and was heavier in taste, while the darker side was done in pineapple BBQ sauce and was sweet, tangy with softer texture. Do lift up the giant size pork ribs and balanced your porky meal with seasonal vegetables hidden beneath, to kill some gluttonous guilt.
We were quite stuffed by the end, but still, we grabbed on a piece of Apfelstrudel, which was a traditional Austrian pastry. The puffy pastry was brimming with cinnamon laced apple fillings, and we enjoyed every mouthful of it with the vanilla ice cream.
Also, thanks to Deutsches Haus German Restaurant & Bar, we got to enjoy the feast with a pint of chilling Asahi, the Champion Beer from the World’s Oldest International Beer Competition.
