Brotzeit - German Bier Bar & Restaurant @ VivoCity

Our friends (CK and Kenny) from KL came for a visit recently and we met them for lunch. We decided to meet at Vivocity because they will be traveling back to KL via coaches in HarbourFront Centre later in the afternoon. Meeting here would be much more convenient logistic wise.

CK & K had eaten earlier (in fact, they have been eating non stop since they came to Singapore) so they shared a Currywurst. ($17.50) That's German pork and curry sausage with chili-curry sauce and potato wedges. It smells really really good.

You know the dish is coming because you can smell the whiff of curry in the air.
(in fact, I think many people ordered it because we keep smelling it!)

Momo and I shared a Würstelplatte. ($32.50) This was one of the many platters for two. The reason we had this was because we wanted to try the different sausages available!

There were spicy chicken sausages, Nürnberger pork bratwurst, mini pork-beef cheese sausages, weisswurst sausage and garlic sausage. It was also served with sauerkraut and mustard. Their version of sauerkraut surprisingly is a version I would eat! It's not as sour as most places and it tasted rather pleasant.

I am not a beer drinker, but our visitors were. I can't remember what was this beer they ordered. ;-p
Many people come here just to have beer. It's after all called a Bier Bar!

We were joined later by LadyIronChef and Camemberu.

While the rest were chatting, I had the toughest game of Scrabble ever with CK! Oh man, this guy was damn good. I was later told he plays scrabble online with sometimes 8 or 9 people simultaneously!  You guessed it, I lost!

If you are wondering, we played it on the iPad and used iPhones as the tile deck.
If you got an iPad and iPhones around, download it!

After CK, Kenny and LadyIronChef left, I had a 3 person game with Camemberu and Momo. It's addictive!

Camemberu and Momo got a little hungry after a while, and they decided to order more food.
They ordered the Riesenschnitzel ($45).

It's really a big huge gigantic breaded escalope of pork served on a wooden board. It comes with 2 choices of side dishes. That's the usual size fork for your comparison.

Haha, I was tempted and joined in to eat as well. Not bad! How can you resist schnitzels.
These schnitzels special sets are only available on Sundays.

(When I was studying for pre-U long long ago in Melbourne, 3 out of 5 days, I had schnitzels for lunch!! I shudder now thinking I could eat them so often then!)

The sides, this was the Kleiner Salat (Mixed Salad).

The Kartoffelhappen (potato wedges).
These wedges tasted really good!

I need to stop visiting this website so late at night because it always makes me hungry. :(

I should only come here after dinner.
