I have always been a huge fan of German food because the table will always be filled with plenty.
A standard German meal will usually consist of a variety of meat such as pork, beef and poultry. The meat is usually in a form of sausages. You would often see diners pairing it with beer. I was recently invited by Brotzeit to experience their Summer Menu located one of their outlets at 313 Somerset. I was filled with excitement as it has been awhile since I last had German food.
Würstel Ringelspiel mit Brezn (Sausage Tower)
Introducing the Sausage Tower with pretzels. Ordering this, you can have the choice of choosing between between their 1m long Smoked Chicken Cheese Sausage or Farmer’s Sausage (Pork) which is served on a wooden tower. If you wish to try both, you can also opt for their half and half option. This platter is also accompanied with two Bravarian pretzels. You may wish to know that their sausages are served with chilli sauce and two types of mustard of your choice.
Top up with sides to pair with your sausages
With more than 12 different sides to choose from, you will definitely be spoilt for choices. Each side is only an additional $6 served in a decent bowl size for sharing amongst 2-3 people. My recommendation is to not over order the sides as they are very rich in carbs, hence your tummy would feel full fast. My suggestion for a family size would be about 3-4 side dishes.
The 12 side dishes are as follows (highlighted ones are the ones I enjoyed during the tasting):
- Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
- Seasonal Vegetables with Thyme (Recommended by me)
- Mashed Potato (Add $2 for truffle mashed) (Recommended by me)
- Potato Salad
- Home-made Butter Spätzle (Recommended by me)
- Spicy Potato Wedges (Add $2 for truffle wedges)
- Small Mixed Salad
- Fries (Recommended by me)
- Braised Red Cabbage
- Roasted Potatoes (Add $2 for truffle fries)
- Braised White German Cabbage
Bauernwurst (Farmer's Sausage)
If you prefer having a smaller portion instead of ordering the 1m long sausage tower, you can opt for a single portion instead. This dish is served with sliced roasted potatoes and braised red cabbage salad. Amongst the different sausages I've tried during the tasting, this was my favourite as it was delectable. If you enjoy having a coarse texture sausage, you will enjoy it.
Ger ä ucherte H ü hnerk ä sewurst (Smoked Chicken Cheese Sausage)
How could I possibly miss out cheese sausage! It was also one of my top favourites behind the german sausage. The sausage is infused with bits of cheese that will ooze in your mouth once you take a bite. The dish is also served with sliced roasted potatoes and braised red cabbage salad. The size of this sausage is 1m long, hence my recommendation is to share between 2-4 people. For cheese lovers, you will defintiely enjoy it.
The mackerel fish is a recent addition to Brotzeit's menu. I feel that it is pretty uncommon to find a fish dish served at a German Restaurant. Hence, I find it unique as it is definitely something new for diners. I enjoyed the fish skin as it was crispy and the fish did not had a fishy taste which was pleasant.
In summary, I had an enjoyable time spent at Brotzeit. I feel that it is definitely a spot you can come with your friends to chill and have drinks at the same time. Thank you for having us! Do check out their other outlets located at Vivocity, Raffles Place, Katong as well if you are in the hood. I look forward to my next visit here with my friends.
