Say German cuisine and most people immediately think of meaty food like sausages and pork knuckles. Brotzeit’s hopes to change all that. Its recent updated menu encompasses the all-time Brotzeit’s favourites dishes plus a new category Brotzeit FIT, offering well-loved traditional German classics together with refreshingly healthier options. With a total of 24 new delectable dishes, there is surely something for everyone and anyone!
Take the Gegrillter Ziegenkase Salat mit Beeren (Grilled Goat Cheese Salad with Berries), one of the five sensational salad on top of the DIY salad selection in the Brotzeit FIT category. Loaded with anti-oxidant-rich pomegranates and cranberries over a bed of mesclun greens and baby spinach, the salad is further topped with grilled goats cheese, strawberries and pecan nuts for added crunch. The salad is well-balanced in flavour and bite, and the goat cheese gives the salad a smooth, creamy texture over the crunchy greens.
It’s a riot of rainbow delicious for the Violeter Bluemenkohlsalat (Purple Cauliflower Salad). Rich in antioxidants and flavour, the purple cauliflower not only elevates the taste of the salad it is packed with many wonderful nutrients. Inside the plate of delightful hues are cherry tomatoes, capers, marinated olives, fresh basil and parsley, drizzled with a special home-made white balsamic dressing.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a visit without digging into the traditional German food. Pfandl is one that touches my meat-loving fancy. The savoury pan-seared beef, Nurnberger sausages, pork patties, smoked Kassler, roasted pork collar and meat loaf goes well with the delectable mushroom sauce. The fresh sauerkraut and creamy mashed potatoes that come with the dish balance the strong meaty flavour.
Another dish to love is the Klassisch Gekochtes Rindfleisch (Classic Boiled Beef). Deceivingly light in appearance, the Australian grass-fed beef ribs and oyster blade is tender and flavour rich. Served in a succulent piping hot beef broth with seasonal vegetables, it is the absolute comfort food – all in a bowl.
For those who craves for fried chicken and authentic German sausages, the Bayerishches Duo (Bavarian Duo) is the one dish that combines the best of both worlds. The unique combination features fried chicken over a fresh serving of potato salad, together with juicy Weisswurst sausages, served alongside freshly made pretzel and mustard. The best part, however, is the fun part where you got to either test your cutlery skill to peel off the skin or suck the filling out German style.
