UPDATED: Pork Medallions, Sausage, the value SET LUNCH at RM28++ – HERE !
Brotzeit opened with a bang on its 1st day yesterday.
And I’m not the only one who thinks it’s GOOD ok! Here are some people who went to try the food during dinner..
For me, I happened to be in Mid Valley for a meeting during lunch & was given the opportunity to sample some of their signature dishes, thanks to Leonard Foong & the outlet manager Mr Mohan. 😉
My focus was more on the FOOD of course. Super hungry after my meeting, I personally polished off half of this “fladen” , a special baked thin crust dark dough bread with toppings. The dark dough actually imparts a different flavour than the normal pizza dough. I loved the brittle crust and the gourmet toppings of PORK bacon, cheese and vined-ripened sherry small tomatoes. The chillis (bird eyes chillis!) packs a nice fiery punch. Definitely a great snack to go with beers!

Understandably, the PORK KNUCKLE is Brotzeit’s signature dish. I’m no German food lover; yet I enjoyed it heaps! It helps of course, to douse the tender meat with the full bodied, rich gravy.
Portions are huge & definitely meant to be shared. The sides were delicious on their own; the Sauerkraut (braised white German cabbage) was well balanced in taste – something commendable, as most Sauerkraut I’ve eaten either had way too much salt (and not necessarily good salt at that) or it’s too mushy. The lovely potatoes salads/mash was sourish appetizing & the fragrant fried onion rings on top were a nice added touch.
The pork knuckle itself? Lovely crackly skin sheathing tender meat & melt-on-tongue fats within. Not bad for the 1st pork knuckle to be served at Brotzeit!
Good food with fine beers are one thing, comfort & ambiance is another.
But no worries about that at Brotzeit as the management has devoted necessary attention for that aspect.
Brotzeit’s interior is welcoming with a ‘feel -good openness’ cleverly achieved by low tables and comfortable long chairs, unlike other restaurants that favours high back chairs and round tables, which tends to obscure the ability to see the whole area at once.
Dining tables are well spaced out too, providing ample walkway between the dining area & the bar for patrons to move about and socialise. Cute drawings on the wallboards added an element of playfulness, enough to elicit a grin & remind oneself to chill & relax.
Al fresco area outside the outlet.
High chairs & tables at the open air walkway, a much better choice than having it inside.
Brotzeit seems to be the place-to-be in Mid Valley for its variant amount of German brews, great sausages and authentic German cuisine. I’m aiming for the goulash and sausages next! 😉
