Just happen that my sister has the Groupon to get Brotzeit Platter that serve for 4 to 5 pax. Without the Groupon, this platter cost about RM200++. So I went here with my family for this meat feast. Before this, my colleagues mentioned about this restaurant and she can't praise enough of the food after she had some kind of pork knuckle.
Little Hidden German Bar in a Big City
Established in year 2006, Brotzeit is one of the many German bar bring world-class German beer into our nation.
Brotzeit has been a special gem among other bar in Mid Valley. During day time, it seems like an ordinary restaurant for usual diners; At night, many would enjoy the great bar feeling after a long day with lively ambience.
Brotzeit German Bier Bar (or Beer Bar) is famous of their pork platter and various German main courses, side dishes, and of course, German beers. I don't have the chance to taste the beer as me and my family going at lunch time, and we not fancy about beer.
You can choose to sit indoor or outdoor. In my opinion, indoor is a little noisy during night time when many diners are around. If you wish to have some quiet time while enjoying some German beers, you can choose to sit outdoor.
The waiters & waitress are quite friendly. Lots of them are around so we don't need to get to wait too long calling them to take our order. We just show our groupon and they immediately know what to do without much question.
Environment wise is okay, the place kind of giving me the feeling I'm eating in an old fashion pub, with the mexico-like background music (I'm not sure that's German song or other languages).
One of the Greatest Pork Platters in the City
The only problem is that, the Brotzeit Platter that we order need a lot of preparation time and we got starved for like 20 minutes.
When the platter is finally served, here it is:
The signature pork platter contain of large portion crispy pork knuckle (the main source of stuffiness), some of the best sausage and pork schnitzel.
Upon ordering this pork platter, you are allow to pick 2 side dishes which is available in their menu.
There isn't much veggie on the plate so picking some veggie for the side dishes would be a good choice.
Here come the best part. After we eating it, I gotta say the Pork Knuckle is AWESOME!! The meat is soft, nice to chewed, and the taste just right. I can taste the meat and the flavor together, and the flavor doesn't take away the taste of the meat. It's well cooked, and same for the rest of the meat.
Not as awesome as Pork Knuckle, the other-pork-meat is cooked in a different way, not too much of flavoring but with the original taste of the meat.
The sausage is slightly spicy but that's giving a great taste for each bite (My stomach growl really loud now *drool....*). But the meats are served with something BBQ sauce and other dressing, so it's kinda jelak after taken huge portion of it.
For the side dishes, we order roasted potatoes and potato salad. The potato salad is a little stuffy because of the dressing, but it taste great. A bit like smashed potato. The roasted potato is crunchy but not over fried. I can still taste the potato in it.
I also order a cranberry juice that cost me around RM10. The cranberry taste is not that much but at least I think they don't add extra sugar in it. So it's quite a nice feel after having all those meats.
Brotzeit is not located inside of Mid Valley, you need to look for Maybank and the police office that facing the road between Mid Valley and the Garden outside of Mid Valley.
If you are outside the center court, you need to go straight to the direction where you can see Delicious Cafe, Antipodean, Chillis... and keep moving straight towards the end until you see Brotzeit on your right.
Haven't tried most of the foods, but the authentic German style cuisine is there. As promoted, their Brotzeit Platter is really unbeatable. Definitely memorable and mouth-watering whenever I think about it.
Considering the main meal that we had is a platter for 4-5 pax, the stuffiness is kinda overkill but truly satisfying for a meat gourmet.
Cost is a great issue that prevent me from dining here. Although I wanted to try many foods, but the average price for appetizer is quite high, not to mention about the main meals.
So make sure you are ready enough to poke some holes in your wallet before dining in.
You'll receive a warm welcome when you reach the door step of the restaurant like they are ready to serve you anytime. The waiters and waitress are around most of the time so it's not an issue if you need anything from them.
The only drawback is the waiting time. If you are super hungry, better eat something before dining in.
Not too fancy, not too ordinary. It looks more like a drinking bar as many people are there for the beer, but many people are there for the foods as well. So it's suitable for any diners and drinkers despite being a beer bar.
Music during day time is just right, kind of lively with good atmosphere. But when the place is crowded with people, you might be feeling stuffy and noisy.
YES! Provided that budget allow. My next visit will definitely involve at least the pork knuckle platter, at least a smaller and less costly one.
