The arrival of Spring in Bavaria is the perfect time to enjoy a cool glass of Munchner beer along with grilled pork and sausages. At Brotzeit, you too can enjoy fresh spring flavors with dishes inspired by the traditional Bavarian celebration of Maifest. A cold beer, grilled pork, and sausages...enough reasons for a celebration at Brotzeit.
And for a limited time, you can enjoy one of Paulaner's seasonal spring brews, the Paulaner Original Munchner Marzen, a strong yet smooth lager made from dark roasted malt. Named after the month of March, traditionally the last month of the year to brew lager before summer, Paulaner's Original Munchner Marzen has a refreshingly smooth body with a rich caramel hue, and just the right brew to pair with Brotzeit's signature pork dishes and sausages.
The Brotzeit staff, dressed in traditional Bavarian costumes, welcome guests and diners as Brotzeit's month long Maifest celebration is officially launched. As part of the Maifest celebration, Brotzeit's staff even performed the traditional Bavarian Maypole dance adding to the festive mood.
The Maifest celebration is also significant, as it is a celebration not for the change of weather for us locals, but for the "awakening" of out taste buds for new and refreshing flavor experiences. And leave it to Chef Ivan Maminta to bring you on culinary journey to the Bavarian Spring with some of Brotzeit's newest dishes just for the Maifest celebration. Like the Maifest Platter (P 2,400), a mouthwatering spread with tender slabs of grilled pork chops, Schwenkbraten or schnitzel skewers, spicy chicken sausages, grilled pork sausage, pork cheese sausage, garlic sausage and veal sausage, served with potato salad and mixed vegetables.
Grilled thick slabs of pork chops almost an inch thick that's juicy and tender, grilled chunks of pork perfectly seasoned and grilled on skewers with vegetables, and a selection of Brotzeit's signature sausages all in one platter. The mere sight alone is impressive, a Bavarian spring feast best paired with Paulaner's Munchner Marzen.
The tasty Schwenkbraten, grilled pork with vegetables, is tender and juicy, and the addition of fresh vegetables is tasty proof that spring has arrived. This, and new lunch specials inspired by the traditional Maifest will be available for a limited time only.
Breaded Camembert with Cranberry Sauce, one of Brotzeit's popular appetizers, provides a rich and creamy break from the pork and veal sausages. The crisp outer layer and soft camembert combine for contrasting textures, perfectly finished by the sweet and tart cranberry sauce.
And the Maifest celebration goes into high gear, with beer drinking contests and games, as you down more beer and go for another one. And as the night progresses, having yet another cold Munchner Marzen seems so right.
Then, cap your meal with Brotzeit's signature Dessert Platter, a medley of indulgent Bavarian desserts including Apple Strudel, warm Chocolate Cake, grapes, homemade ice cream and layered crepes.
Brotzeit's Warm Chocolate Cake adds a sweet touch to the Bavarian spring feast, Add some of Brotzeit's homemade ice cream for a classic combo. Then go for the layered crepes with a sweet custard filling for a one-two punch.
And definitely leave space for Brotzeit's Apple Strudel to complete your Maifest experience at Brotzeit. A fun and successful Maifest celebration in cooperation with the Goethe Institute, Brotzeit's inclusion in the 2014 EU Culinary Season line-up and some great new dishes for Maifest. Good reasons to celebrate with beer and pork at Brotzeit...Prost!
