Food: Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant @ Mid Valley Megamall

I went to Brotzeit German Bier Bar with my girlfriends once, all because of the refreshing mango beer which they raved about. 

A good sizable dinner crowd for a Saturday night
Having heard that the food was supposed to be pretty good, I decided to suggest to Adam that we patron Brotzeit one Saturday night. He agreed, and off we went!

Of course we had to have the Affensaft, the mango beer I mentioned earlier, which is actually Weissbier with mango juice (RM 29 for 0.5l). You can also opt for your Weissbier to come with banana, but I don't like banana and Adam wasn't feeling adventurous so the mango it was. This was as good as the first time I tried it. The sweet mango juice takes the edge of the beer, and retains a slight beery aftertaste. Definitely not one for beer purists because adding mango juice to the original form of beer is likely to be a blasphemous act in their eyes :p

We headed straight for the Sausage Platter / Würstelplatte for 2 (RM 78) because Adam loves his gourmet sausages. We got quite a good mix with this platter at Brotzeit, I reckon - there were spicy chicken sausages, garlic pork ones, a cheesy pork one, Nürnburger pork sausages, and a huge Weisswurst which is traditionally made from finely minced pork and veal - and served with sauerkraut. All were meaty and juicy and went well with the tart, albeit a little dry, sauerkraut. Not much to fault if there would be one gripe, it would be the price; we couldn't help feeling like it was a tad too steep.

We also ordered a Crispy Chicken Salad / Backhendlsalat (RM 24 for a small one) besides the Sausage Platter above. The salad came with thin strips of deep fried chicken fillet on a bed of greens, sun-dried tomatoes, corn and potato salad. It sounded like a really yummy concoction when we read the description off the menu, but we weren't won over by the actual outcome. The chicken, although still crispy, was cold and tough, and while some might applaud the many flavours and textures in this salad, we weren't fans. I thought there was too much going on, and Adam is even harder to please when it comes to salad so this was left unfinished. Reviews elsewhere wax lyrical about this salad though, so perhaps Brotzeit was just having a bad night.

Saving grace - spotting a tall Kimi Raikonnen look alike behind the bar.

Adam and I left Brotzeit with a pretty big bill and feeling a little unsatisfied. Perhaps we might one day return for the more lauded dishes like the pork knuckle!
