Food Review: Brotzeit

Brotzeit review by The Ranting Panda!
Make a reservation for Brotzeit at http://www.kaimen.asia today!

The Ranting Panda

The Place Beer and German food seem to be synonymous with Brotzeit, which is probably one of the most popular chill-lax restaurants among Singaporeans and likewise foreigners. Of the few outlets in Singapore, the branch at Vivocity probably has the best ambience in my opinion with the alfresco waterfront dining if the weather is merciful.
IMG_0985The Food Sausages and Pork Knuckle are the must order at Brotzeit! For a start, we tried the Seafood Salad ($20.50), which I would recommend for sharing. The ingredients are fresh and there is a well-mixed variety such as smoked salmon, tuna and prawns.
IMG_0979 For mains, we decided to go for the best of all worlds – the legendary Brotzeit Platter ($88). Just one word to describe the portion – Gigantic! I love it for the variety as it pretty much sum up the best of German cuisine – Pork Knuckle, Sausages and

Dim Sum in Singapore

2375988_115552083358_2

Dim sum means ‘touch your heart’ and with as many as 150 items on a restaurant menu, and 2,000 in the entire range, it is a challenge to not find something you love. As Cantonese people tend to avoid fried foods early in the day, steamed dishes dominate most dim sum menus. There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Hence, going for dim sum is known as yum cha, which literally means ‘drinking tea.’ Usually a brunch or lunch affair, it is a common form of family, co-worker and other group get-togethers.

Today, dim sum restaurants come in all shapes and sizes, from straight shooting to high falutin’. Start with one of the large mid-priced eateries where in the midst of boisterous conversations you will see multiple generations gather around the table for a no-nonsense family feed and office workers enjoying a short but effective break from the daily grind.

Popular dishes in Singapore include various types such as: Char Siu Bao, Egg Custard Tarts, Flower Scallion Rolls, Har Gau, Mango Pudding, Mini Spring Rolls, Potstickers, Sesame Seed Balls, Shrimp Toast, Shu Mai and Spareribs with Hoisin Sauce. Dim Sum is prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates.

3. Omakase Burger

omakase

“Omakase” literally means “to entrust” and here at Omakase Burger, we ask our customers to trust that we will offer them a burger made with ingredients of the highest quality and prepared in the best way we know.

Our love for burgers originated from the US, where two brothers travelled from coast to coast, embracing the ‘better burger’ movement and tasting any burger that was worth trying. We learnt a lot along the way, including the East Coast’s fascination with beef blends and the West Coast’s commitment to super-fresh, high-quality ingredients. Omakase Burger is the culmination of this journey, incorporating all the best elements to create a thoroughly original and authentic burger that’s never been seen, tasted or experienced in Asia.

This is our favorite burger. Trust us and give us a try and hopefully soon we’ll become your favorite burger too.

5. Relish by Wild Rocket

Relish

After 3 years of serving our burgers to our appreciative audience, we have re-vamped our restaurant (yes yes all those spanking new restaurants at the IRs are keeping us on our toes). We noticed that everyone else serving burgers decided to adopt our white-washed décor with blackboards so we decided to move away from the pack and have chosen a darker and more sophisticated look with over-sized lampshades.

In addition to our new décor, we have added many of our own favourite comfort food (think pastas, soups, fish fillets, curries and braises!) to the existing burgers which continue to be on the list of Singapore’s best burgers and we continue to ensure that our patties are not made from dodgy parts (tails, ears, nose…) but rather from parts of the animal that was meant for burgers (chuck, shin, rib-eye).

Chef Willin’s wide range of burgers are both good & fun to eat – there are burgers which we won’t mess with (think greasy smoky bacon, melted emmental cheese, medium-rare juicy beef patty, guacamole all forced between lightly toasted sesame buns) to burgers that are – well not so traditional (for example – the Blue Cheese Beef Burger with Rucola, Poached Pear & Walnut Butter, the paper-thin omelet-wrapped Ram-Lee Burger, the Soft-Boned Char-Siew Pork Open Foccacia Burger & the Curry Chicken Burger).

Don’t forget our popular all-day brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, where we serve burger-inspired brunch items like our home-made pork & apple sausage patty breakfast burger and the smoked salmon, scrambled egg & cream cheese bagel. Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention our fresh fruit sangrias which are the best things you can drink on a lazy weekend.

We buy only good and fresh ingredients and plough for hours experimenting, to get every recipe right. Everyone’s allowed to have an obsession. And this is ours.

Best of Singapore – The Chilli Crab

4

Every Singaporean knows the popularity of the Chilli Crab within the country. It is not just an ordinary dish – it is considered a national dish Singaporeans are proud of and is a must try for foreigners visiting the country.

“The red-tangy sauce is made deliciously fragrant with light flavourings of garlic and rice vinegar, while thickening flour and egg ribbons (produced by adding beaten eggs towards the end of the cooking process) give the chilli crab dish the fluffy texture it’s known for.” – YourSingapore.com

The origin of the famous Chilli Crab dates back to the year 1956 and was founded by seafood restaurant owner Mr Lim Choon Ngee and his beloved wife Mdm Cher Yam Tian. At that time, seafood were all cooked using open charcoal fire. Chilli Crab was then created and later became famous through patrons’ recommendations.

Today, the Chilli Crab is served in many seafood restaurants throughout the country. Jumbo Seafood Restaurant is a household name which is very popular for the famous dish. Other restaurants which are also popular for the dish are No Signboard Seafood Restaurant and Long Beach Seafood Restaurant. So what are you waiting for? Have your Chilli Crab fix now!
