Brotzeit German Bier Bar and Restaurant

The beautiful thing about Singapore is that you don't have to travel the world to enjoy authentic cuisines from the other side of the globe.

Hop down to Brotzeit German Bier Bar and Restaurant at Vivo City to satisfy your German cuisine cravings. I loved the cosy yet stylish deco and also the outdoor seating with a fantastic view of Sentosa.

Their draft beer is pretty good but what I really like was the range of German beers that you can’t find elsewhere.

The food is great too! We shared a pork knuckle accompanied by a spicy galosh and we absolutely loved it!

The pork knuckle flesh was moist and tender with an unbelievably crispy skin. A cardiologist's nightmare! Most brauhaus would pour the gravy over the knuckle and serve, but at Brotzeit, they serve it in a gravy boat at the side. So you can decide how wet you like your knuckle.

The spicy galosh is a dream... It's a German cabbage beef stew (i think haha). The soup is so rich and flavourful, it was wonderful to the last drop.

It’s definitely a great place for anyone who loves good quality beer with good hearty food. Good food, good beer, great view and even greater company. This place is a fantastic place for friends, colleagues and even families to hang out at the end of the day. Seating is definitely a problem with it's popularity, so go early or call to reserve seats to avoid dissappointments..

CoCo's Stone Soup

CoCo’s Stone Soup (Serves 2-3 persons)

2 potatoes – skin and cut into small chunks
2 carrots – skin and cut into small chunks
2 medium onions – skin and quarter it
1 tomato – quarter it

1 chicken back bone
1 chicken boneless thigh meat

1. Boil your chicken bone in half a pot of water for about 15mins. It can be chicken bone or pork bone. **
2. Put in the potatoes and carrots and boil until it turns slightly soft
3. When the hard vegetables have turned slightly soft, add in your tomato, onion and chicken thigh meat.
4. Add a pinch of salt and continue boiling till the meat is cooked.
5. When the meat is cooked (5-10mins), remove the meat and chop it up. I fried up some cabbage earlier while the soup is boiling, so I just place the chicken on top of the cabbage and serve.
6. Remove the chicken bone from the soup
7. Taste the soup and flavour accordingly and only if necessary.
8. Serve with rice and cut chilli padi.

** Boiling bones add much more flavour to the soup, which means less salt is needed when flavouring. Boiling the bones instead of the meat would also mean more tender meat.

Why is it called stone soup? There's actually a story behind it. See it here. But mine stone soup has less ingredients... :)

Delhi Restaurant

Have you ever had North Indian Cuisine? I didn't. Cobby was inspired by the M1 commercial “Eh… Mumbai dah! India…!” and asked his friend (Jason) for recommendation on Indian cuisine.

The restaurant is located just next to Banana Leaf Apolo at Race Course Road. No wonder we never saw it. It’s kindda overshadowed by it’s big and fancy neighbour. At first glance I wonder if they are even open as the interior looks pretty dark. But step inside and you have a nice and cosy little restaurant filled with wonderful aromas.

I’m new to this so I let Cobby take the reins. We ordered a Malai Kebabs, one medium Sizzler and one Fish Briyani. We had lime juice to go with the food.

I would definitely recommend North Indian cuisine to people who can’t take too spicy food and yet wanted some variety in their meals.

We started eating even before the food came! The Papadums were so delicious! It’s served with some unknown green dip with a minty, citrus fragrance. There’s also a plate of pickled onions. Yum! We finished the whole basket…

Yummy papadums

The Malai Kebab is like a skewered BBQ chicken. You squeeze some lime juice over eat before you eat it. It’s delicious! Tender and juicy meat with a nice smoky bbq fragrant and just a hint of spice.

Malai Kebabs

The Sizzler (Medium sized) is a real crowd pleaser. It has mutton, chicken and fish served on a hot plate. When they serve, the waiter would pour a shot of liquor over the dish and light it up. Voom! Both of us go “Wah…” Even the people at the next table went “wah….” Very tasty the meat! Very marinated and flavourful. But the serving is abit big for the both of us.

Half size Sizzler

The fish briyani is abit of a let down. The rice is a little too soft and the curry is a little too sweet for my taste.

Heavy Lunch...

But two out of three is good enough to get a thumbs up from Miss CoCo! So I will definitely go back again. Probably would try something different next time.

So until then, here are the store’s details.
