Brotzeit at The Star Vista

Bringing a taste of Bavaria to the West, Brotzeit recently launched its fourth restaurant—with plans to open two more outlets, at the brand new Star Vista Mall at Buona Vista. Chic and contemporary, Brotzeit at Star Vista dominates its presence with an enormous five meter high glass shop front, featuring murals and oak paneled walls with a stunning beer bottle display.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heading the kitchen will be head chef Dominik Oesterreicher and executive chef Claus Schwarzmann, providing guests with a wide array of fladen pizzas (freshly made with Brotzeit’s thin rye crust fladenbrot base), an extensive selection of sausages, not forgetting, of course, Brotzeit’s signature pork knuckles marinated in a secret spice blend—slow roasted over three days.

If you’re heading down in a group, be sure to try out the Brotzeit platter ($88) consisting of Brotzeit’s signature pork knuckles, a selection of their best sausages, pork schnitzels and two side dishes of your choice.

Other meaty delights like the pork medallions ($29.50)—grilled pork fillet medallions wrapped in smoked bacon served with a side of fries and sautéed mixed greens, veal goulash ($26.50) that’s braised in traditional paprika sauce with buttered spatzle, and salmon fillet ($32.50) served with sautéed spinach and balsamic glace and parsley potatoes.

Dessert addicts, not to worry, there’s something to whet your after-dinner palette as well. There’s emperor’s cake ($12.50) that’s a shredded pancake with rum and raisins, drenched with a sweet plum sauce, and our personal favorite—warm chocolate cake ($12.50) with a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate center, topped with a scoop of Stracciatella vanilla ice cream. Time to loosen that waist band.
