After a two months of renovation, Paulaner Bräuhaus at Millenia Walk is re-opened again. Singapore's first and only authentic German microbrewery has a new stylish and dapper interior marked by a contemporary palette of light maple. tan leather, matt gold and royal blue. In conjunction with the re-opening, it has also updated its food menu.
We started with some beers from the tap. From left to right, we have the Paulaner Brauhaus Weissbier Wheat Bear, Paulaner Brauhaus Helles Pale Lager and Paul Brauhaus Drunkel Dark Lager.
Obazda with Pretzel 4.2/5
Kicking off the meal at Paulaner Brauhaus, we started with some light bites. First we had the Obazda with Pretzel ($16.90). The Munich-style pretzel, baked freshly in the premises daily is accompanied by a bottle of obazda (a Bavarian cheese spread). The cheese spread is made with fresh butter, camembert, various spices, chopped onions and topped with fried onions. The obazda is really very enjoyable that you may end up ordering a few pretzel to go with it.
Paulaner Trio Fish 4/5
The Paulaner Trio Fish ($15.90) is another good choice to go with the pretzel which comprises of smoked salmon in cream cheese, herring salad and red radish salad with smoked trout. My favourite is the herring salad which adds a sourish touch to whet up the appetite.
Pork Knuckle 4.2/5
A staple of German cuisine, undoubtedly is the Pork Knuckle ($31.90) served bone-in. The whole pork knuckle is marinated in Bavarian spice blend, brushed with Paulaner beer, and then oven roasted for 2.5 hours for a crackling and crispy skin with succulent flesh. It even comes with a traditional Bavarian bread dumpling for a hearty full meal. I like the sauerkraut side that helps to cut the richness.
Pork Schnitzel 3.5/5
For a meaty enjoyment, go for the Pork Schnitzel ($25.90). The pork escalope is coated in seasoned breadcrumbs and fried in butter until golden brown. It is then served together with lemon wedges, french fries and ketchup.
For diners who like to have some additional sides to go with their mains, an unique item on the menu is the Spatzle ($6.90), a homemade egg noodles. While the noodle has a enjoyable chewy textural bite, I thought the execution was a little bland. I also don't like the taste of the alfalfa sprouts.
Currywurst Hot Paula 4.2/5
Besides pork knuckle, German cuisine is also known for their sausages. Not to be missed is the Currywurst Hot Paula ($12.90) which is a six inch smoked pork sausage in a delectable curry tomato-chilli sauce, dusted with curry powder and paired with a side of fries. The addition of curry and chilli definitely made it more receptive to the local palate.
Apple Beignets 4/5
A warm and comforting dessert at Paulaner Brauhaus is their Apple Beignets ($14.90). The apple rings is coated with wheat beer batter, ddeep fried and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Paired it with some vanilla ice cream and vanilla sauce with berry compote for a sweet treat.
Guess I don't have a king's palate as I did not enjoy the Kaiserchmarrn ($14.90), which is heralded as the Emperor's Pancake because King Franz Joseph l is known to be very fond of the dish. The thick-cut pancakes are caramelised in a pan with butter and sugar. To enjoy, have it together with the red berry compote, apple compote and vanilla ice cream.
Every Sunday, Paulaner Brahaus serves up a sumptuous German Brunch buffet from 1130am to 230pm. A myriad of hot and cold stations teeming with sausages, Bavarian meatloaf, pork knuckle, salads and much more. The dessert station station also comprises a delightful chocolate fountain, warm apple strudel and an assortment of ice cream. Activities such as colouring or mask masking are available for children during the brunch too.
