This March, Brotzeit’s newly-appointed Group Executive Chef Wolfgang Ranner, an award-winning culinarian whose career in spans over 30 years, will wow Singapore with his new contemporary German bier bar and restaurant’s awaited menu revamp. Enhancing the menu with a larger variety of authentic German favourites, Chef Wolfgang is excited to showcase even more of his native culture’s cuisine to Brotzeit’s fans and guests, many of whom have loyally supported the born-in-Singapore brand since its first outlet opened at VivoCity.
Brotzeit’s much-loved meat platters – overflowing with generous helping of sausages, pork knuckle and a myriad of sides – are (as many have declared): Legendary. Chef Wolfgang continues this truly Brotzeit tradition with the new Wunderplatte (Wonder Platter $128, serves 6 or more) featuring a whole 1.5Kg Rotisserie Chicken with Crispy Skin, Pork Knuckle, Bavarian Honey Ribs and new menu addition of the ubiquitous German snack Berner Sausage (pork sausages stuffed with sliced German Emmental cheese, wrapped in a blanket of succulent streaky bacon and finally finished on the grill). Sides including French Fries and pickles complete the drool-worthy feast, especially when paired with Brotzeit’s hefty 1-Litre steins of draft German beer.
Chef Wolfgang’s menu refresh also includes several home-style recipes familiar to those who’ve enjoyed a German family dining experience. The ‘grandmother’s style’ Creamy Chicken Soup ($12) is chock-full of tender cubed chicken, potatoes and a variety of seasonal vegetables, simmered in a tasty cream broth.
Another German family dish Chef Wolfgang imports is Bandnudeln, typically from southern Germany, where the long and flat egg noodles are a staple all year long. At Brotzeit, guests will get to slurp up Bandnudeln ($24) in a hefty main dish topped with Meatballs made of beef, pork and onion. A rich Mushroom and Mustard cream sauce is ladled over generously to complete the taste of home cooking.
True to his promise of creating a menu for everyone whilst staying authentic to German cuisine, Chef Wolfgang’s vegetarian offerings are a reflection of Germany’s contemporary dining culture – there’s a Superfood Salad ($19) with over 15 different healthful ingredients such as avocado, blueberries and mandarin orange, feta cheese, mixed nuts and seeds tossed with Chef’s tangy house dressing, and a trio of Savoury Tarts ($20) made with a delicious buttery shell, and then baked with fillings of sautéed mushrooms, tomato, and spinach and cheese.
For those who prefer a lighter main course, try the sustainably-sourced Pan-seared Barramundi ($32) served with fragrant herb sauce atop a bed of German egg noodles.
Brotzeit is excited to launch its revamped menu offerings at all outlets from Wednesday, 8 March. Make your reservations today!
