And just like that, a year has passed and Brotzeit turns one...
And there's no better way to celebrate a successful first year than in true Brotzeit style, with wheat beer and pork. Lots of wheat beer and pork (for more on Brotzeit, check out my previous posts here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2013/04/prost-good-times-at-brotzeit-german.html and see how Brotzeit does Oktoberfest here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2013/10/oktoberfest-at-brotzeit-german-bier-bar.html).
To celebrate Brotzeit's first year anniversary, start with a tall, cold glass of Paulaner Weissbier and a Wurstelplatte, or Sausage Platter (P 980), a selection of authentic sausages including Weisswurst, spicy chicken sausages, Nurnberger sausages, pork cheese sausages, and garlic pork sausages with a side of sauerkraut. Brotzeit's homemade sausages always hits the spot, with all-natural sheep casings and a variety of stuffings. A delightful snap comes with every bite, with each sausage offering different flavors. Perfect when paired with any of Brotzeit's Paulaner beers, no meal at Brotzeit is complete without its authentic sausages.
Continue your pork feast at Brotzeit with a hefty Ripperl, or Honey Bavarian Pork Ribs (P 1,050), beer-infused Bavarian pork ribs, served with potato wedges and sauerkraut. Tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs with a sweet honey glaze that pair so well with a tall glass of Paulaner beer.
And finally, sample Brotzeit's newest dish, Schweinbauch (P 550), thick slabs of braised pork belly with roasted potato and red cabbage. The pork belly is tender and juicy, layered with a crisp skin crackling for contrast in textures. The thick slabs are perfectly cooked, and the roasted potatoes and sharply flavored red cabbage complete the dish. Another beer? Absolutely. Beer and pork, nobody does it better than Brotzeit.
End your feast with Nachispeisen Teller, Brotzeit's Dessert Platter (P 650), featuring a sampling of Brotzeit's desserts, including apple strudel, chocolate cake, layered crepes with sweet filling, and homemade ice cream. Just can't get better than that.
Congratulations to Chef Ivan Maminta, Malvin Ang, Edward Cheung, and Rossana Unson for Brotzeit's first year anniversary, and here's to even more success, Prost!
