The Bavarian microbrewery and restaurant Paulaner Brauhaus has now relaunched itself at Millenia Walk. Featuring a more contemporary look and menu, Paulaner Brauhaus embraces its south German character with international modernity. As Singapore’s only German microbrewery, Paulaner has been well known since the time it has opened its doors here as an establishment serving quality German food and excellent homemade beers.
However, to move on with the times and changing market trends, Paulaner has now refurbished its formerly beer garden and pub-like interior, and has incorporated a much more sleek and trendy décor. Brewing its own German style beer and serving authentic South German cuisine, Paulaner has relaunched itself into the local spotlight, by updating its menu and serving other German dishes such as Currywurst, which is from Berlin in North Germany.
Pretzel Tree – Basically a stand hanging with pretzels. Cute to look at and a rather innovative way to serve pretzels. Pretzels are a specialty of Bavaria, and diners will be happy to know that Paulaner bakes its own pretzels, on the premises, fresh every day. Warm and toasty, these pretzels serve as a reminder that even the simplest of foods can have amazing quality.
Paulaner ‘Trio’ Fish – Recommended by Paulaner to be enjoyed with its pretzel tree, a trio of marinated fish are served to delight the senses and taste buds. Diners will revel in a homemade smoked salmon with cream cheese, a tart herring salad punctured with apple, gherkins and onions, as well as a red radish salad with smoked trout fillet. The mishmash of sweet, salty, sour, fruity and rich is indeed a palate pleaser, and definitely a good dish to whet the appetite.
Pork Knuckle – A highlight dish of the Paulaner, An entire bone-in pork knuckle is marinated in a Bavarian spice blend before being brushed with Paulaner beer, and roasted until its meat is succulent, and its skin ever so crispy and crunchy. This hearty main course is served with homemade sauerkraut, and traditional bread dumplings. A feast by itself, this dish is definitely not for those with small appetites. I would strongly recommend that this dish be shared, as it is very heavy and hearty.
Pork Schnitzel – A bread crumbed pork escalope is fried in butter until crisp and golden. Served with a mound of French fries and ketchup, this dish is a definite pleaser for those who love fried meat and potatoes. Despite being a simple and basic dish, it is indeed very satisfying. However, out of personal preference, a mayonnaise or sour cream based sauce will make a good addition, instead of having simply ketchup.
Apple Beignets – Apple rings are dipped in a wheat beer batter and fried to perfection before being sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. This hot dessert is served with vanilla ice cream, vanilla sauce and berry compote. A truly sinful and indulgent treat. Crispy and light, these apple beignets have the perfect crunch and are delicious when blanketed with silky vanilla sauce and smooth vanilla ice cream. The berry compote adds a little tang to the dish, creating a myriad of textures and flavors.
Kaiserschmarrn – Apparently a former royal favorite of King Franz Joseph, thick-cut pancakes are caramelised with butter and sugar before being topped with fruit compote and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Light and fluffy, these pancakes are indeed a treat. And very much worth a try.
Overall, the dining experience was a pleasant one. This was very much a cultural and culinary experience, perfect for group dining so that more sharing and tasting can be done.
