We had a couple of drinks to cap off the night. I wasn't in a mood to have a beer so I ordered Mojito (195PHp). I liked it. It was blend perfectly for my taste.

For really good German beers on tap, Brotzeit is the place to go. Perfect place to unwind after a tiring day at work or to have a nice and chill conversation over dinner. I ordered the Weihenstephan wheat beer, which is perfect for those who like it fruity, light-bodied, and not too hoppy. And it's only P300 for half a liter after 6pm, not bad at all! 127867 They also had 2 limited-offer beers on tap for Octoberfest, one of which my boyfriend had for the same price.

Besides their amazing beer, the selection of food is also worth going for. Too bad I forgot to take a photo of the salad but these are what we ordered:

Onion Soup (P220 for a bowl) - 11088110881108811088
You can't go wrong with onion soup, it's almost always good. The cheese dumpling on this one was quite interesting. Instead of the usual melted cheese layer, you have this soaked but still cheesy piece of bread-like substance that was perfectly soft to bite.

Mozzarella Salad (P350) - 1108811088110881108811088
Loooooove this salad! The lemon and oil-based dressing with pesto sauce was perfect with the whole medley of lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sundries tomatoes, olives, grilled zucchini, and of course the perfectly soft mozzarella. Delicious!

Warm Chocolate Cake (P270) - 11088110881108811088
This was served with stracciatella ice cream, which tasted more like frozen whipped cream (thus the 4 stars). But that cake, though - pure chocolatey goodness! I'm very hard to please when it comes to chocolate cakes, but this one passed my standards. Not too egg-y and not too fluffy with a velvety texture of fine chocolate. And when you take a sip of your wheat beer after, it surprisingly tastes much sweeter! 128076🏻

It has been a while since the last T3 meet up. With busy schedules, our plans normally get cancelled and *sniff sniff* forgotten. But after countless last minute cancelations, we finally got to have dinner. Yahoo!

We decided to have dinner at Shangri-La as N was around the area and J and I (used to) work nearby. We all met around 7 p.m. and we were all very hungry. (Well, I was.)

We had a hard time choosing where to eat as they avoid places I have been to already. (Aren’t they the most supportive friends?) But since I’ve been to all the restaurants already, we stalled for a bit. Given that they are not in the mood for Korean, and I wasn’t too, we went down again and visited Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant.

Given that it was a weekday and it was raining hard, the place was packed. We ended up sitting between the tables of two couples. Thank goodness only one of the two was in intense PDA mode.

We controlled ourselves with ordering as we tend to go overboard when we are all together. We ended up ordering Würstelplatte (PHP980) and Griebenschmalz (PHP290). I also decided to order Tagessuppe, or a fancy way to say Soup of the Day (PHP220). I was pretty stressed that day so I went for a glass of beer. The server said that the sweetest one is the Original Münchner Drunkel Lager (PHP200 for a Klein after 6 p.m.) so I ordered that one. N got the Banana Beer while J, a beer expert went for something N and I were not interested in. 128518

Service was quite quick and first served was my soup. The soup that night was Tomato Soup. *Yum!*

After a spoonful, I realized that it tasted like spaghetti sauce. It was rather thick and heavy as an appetizer. Then again, I managed to finish it. It was still delightful as it was really tasty.

Next served was the Griebenschmalz or bacon spread with German bread. After my tasty soup, it seems like this one had a weak flavor. As a chilled appetizer, I hoped for a bit more texture—perhaps a bit of crunch from the bacon or from the bread. The bread was a bit stale for me. It was interesting though.

The Würstelplatte was served last and serving was pretty generous for a plate ideally good for 2 people. There were 4 spicy chicken sausages, 2 pork cheese sausages, Weisswurt, garlic pork sausage and a generous serving of sauerkraut. The spicy chicken sausages were a bit too spicy for me and my not really sweet beer didn’t help. I really love the rest though. But my favorite was the pork cheese sausage.

Our bill reached over PHP2000 but we left the place with happy tummies. I’ll skip the beer next time though as I really can’t drink it gracefully. I make face unintentionally. Not a pretty sight at all.

Prost!!! 127867 Still think their food is overpriced. I would understand why the sausages are expensive (maybe imported), but fries and potato wedges in small servings at 160php. Seriously? 128078

Beer is good as always! Tried Russ'n this time, which is Weissbier mixed with Lemonade. Almost similar to Mango Affensaft, probably because they have the same beer base. Will try something mixed with Original Hell, next time 128522127866

Its been a hard days niiiiiiiiight 127926 Fridays are best spent in Brotzeit! Mango Affensaft (in the picture) is good for non-beer drinkers since its a sweet mix. Food here is expensive, best eat somewhere else and go here for drinks, if budget is an issue.

Germany has been known for its great beer and sausages and when a German-inspired restaurant opened near my place, I just have to try it myself. It’s the closest I could be with Germany, for now. *winks in an ugly way*

Hey, hey Brotzeit!

Brotzeit is a German Bier Bar & Restaurant which oddly started in Singapore. But they ensure that they offer authentic Bavarian cuisine. According to their site, “brot” means bread while “zeit” means time referring to a leisure meal accompanied by beer.

The place is indeed cozy and it has a masculine feel to it—perhaps because of the brown tones.

N and I are not beer people so we opted not to order any though I was tempted to try.

After salivating while staring at the rather extensive menu, N and I decided to go for the following: Nümberger or Grilled Pork Sausages (PHP470), Serviettenknödel or Napkin Dumplings (PHP190) and Schnokokcuhen or Chocolate Cake (PHP270). Whew! It’s pretty hard to spell those dishes! And don’t ask me to say it!

First served was the Nümberger with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes as side dishes. I loved that the sausage wasn’t overly processed or mashed. You can still feel the chunks of pork and it was quite juicy!

I loved eating it with the sour cabbages. The mashed potatoes were delightful too as it was very smooth and quite creamy.

The Serviettenknödel on the other hand were rather bland. The server gave us some sort of gravy and it helped improve the taste (what taste?) of the dumplings. It was pretty heavy though given it’s made out of bread.

The Schnokokcuhen is good! The cake was moist and the molten chocolate was divine and not overly sweet. I just hope that they served it a tad warmer to have a better contrast with the ice cream.

Overall, I enjoyed having my early dinner there. I’d love to order another plate of Nümberger or maybe try the platter next time. I heard that the curry sausage is their bestseller but I’m not too fond of curry. Then again, this dish might change that.

[I ended up trying the beers in my next visit.]

Achtung! Guten morgen! Javol! Brotzeit! Bier! Prost! 127867127866

Still on a German high after trying this place for the first time. 128517 Classy interiors as expected from what you'd find in a place at the Shangrila mall. But oh man, their German food and German beer selection is astounding. Being a lager fan (i.e. dark beers like SMB cerveza negra), i went for a pint right away. That just hit the spot and i continued to calmly manly-sip away while munching on some warm baked pretzels.

Then the food came... sausage platters, sauerkraut, chicken schnitzels, potato wedges, baked ham, duck, fritatta, crispy pork belly... and on and on and on. With every delicious bite i nearly died. And with every sip of beer i came back alive. A vicious gastronomic cycle of eating and drinking to my heart and belly's content. 128514

The sausages were prepared well and with a good variety to them. The baked ham was tender, moist, and flavorful. And that pork belly, wow, wtf did i just have. That skin was sooo crispy and had the right amount of saltiness to it. Loved the spund of the crunch when slicing pieces of it. The belly meat itself was rolled well and evenly baked. No overcooked and undercooked parts. You could taste the herbed stuffing permeate into the meat so well.

And it was at Brotzeit where i first encountered a 3 liter glass of beer. That cup was HUGE. As tall as most people's torso. Our table ordered 3 of them, so 2 guys finished a ginormous cup each while i split one with a seatmate (okay, hindi TNL 128550). It also made for a great photo op prop. Everyone wanted a pic with the 3 liter glass haha.

Definitely a memorable night for the team at work with good beer, good FOOD, plus we were well taken care of by the staff. Prost! 127866127867

I have been to Brotzeit many times and I can't say enough good things about this place. I recently came here the other night with my friends and had a pretty good time.

The food is always outstanding and the service is great most of the time. It is a really chill environment and a great place to come to with friends.

The food:

Their Weisswurst (Pork and Veal Sausages), Schnitzels, and Pork Knuckle Platter were absolutely so delightful! The Truffle Spatzel was delicious too. The egg pasta was fluffy and creamy, and the black truffle made a simple pasta dish memorable.

Brotzeit has many great beer options for beer lovers everywhere. My personal favorite is the Munchner Dunkel Lager which is a Paulaner dark lager beer. It has this really rich malt sweetness--almost like a caramel-flavored beer. 

For appetizers, we had Griebenschmalz (rustic bacon spread) and Obatzda (Cheese Spread) which were always amazing. The spreads had such great flavors and the breads that came with it, were light and fluffy. The Schnitzel was made just how a German Schnitzel should be made--thinly pounded and crispy.

Nothing here felt like it came from a jar, and everything tasted FRESH. Not a word I usually associate with German food, but in Brotzeit I got the same favorite staples I was craving, but definitely prepared with a lot more skill.

Overall, I'd say that this is a fun, funky place, and a great spot for reasonably-priced German comfort food. I'll definitely be returning. Their food will have you singing 99 Luftballoons with a mouthful of beer and sauerkraut.

Prost!
Mickey

Finally found time to write about my favorite pub around the metro. Brotzeit started here in Mandaluyong but now they have have another branch in Makati and one more coming soon. They have a wide selection of imported beers but what stands out is their 4 Paulaner beers on tap.

My personal favorite, as I am a stout drinker, is the Original Münchner Dunkel Lager because of its rich and full-bodied flavor. Unlike stouts which some people find too bitter, this one has the right amount of roasted flavors while bringing in some hints of caramel and other malty flavors.

Before happy hour, you can get a 0.3L - P165, 0.5L - P250, 1L - P445. Beyond 6pm, you can get the same glasses for P200, P300 and P540, respectively.

I’m really glad that they’ve decided to open here in Manila because we really need more variation when it comes to our beers. One of the reasons why I recommend this place is the fact that they don’t play loud music often and they keep their lights on which makes it a great place to talk with friends over a quick lunch or dinner plus nightcap.

Hope you can come and check this place out. Prost!

My first real meal after I got passed the antibios and my body bugs. I ate at Coco Ichibanya the day before but I wasn't really able to eat it. Probably just 1/4 of what I ordered hehe. It's been 5 days without food so I had to eat whatever looks appetizing on the menu. Hehe my buddy decided that we get some Pork Cheese Sausages, Honey Bavarian Ribs and Meat Patties. They look crazy goood in the photos and well recommended by the servers.

The meat patties were served with delicious sides. It has beans wrapped in bacon and mashed potatoes. I would have loved it if it was asparagus wrapped in bacon but this one's really good too. The patties were cooked really well and delicious.

My favorite was the Pork Cheese Sausage. Reminded me of the Armour Hotdogs. It was served at the right temperature and wasn't overcooked. I think they steam it then cooked in a pan.

It's my least favorite and i find it hard to appreciate the taste. It's too European for me. It's beer infused and served with potato wedges and sauerkraut. Serving size is good for 2-3. I only enjoyed eating the potato wedges. Although the meat was tender, the flavor was just too bold for my liking.

Went last Saturday evening to chill and just drink German beer. I ordered one of their bottled beers - Salvator. It's a bit bitter and sweet at the same time. I am used to San Mig Light that's why. The resto-bar was packed so the servers were a bit occupied but getting our bill after 20mins from requesting it was just unacceptable. We were nice enough to follow it up 2x to different servers. I guess it really depends on the server since the others seem to have short-term amnesia and just completely forgot to get our bill.

During last order, they told our friends they can take orders within 5 mins. Even after we arrived within that time, they refused our order. Saturday night we went there to catch up with friends for nothing.

Spätzle oh Spätzle 128525 This is a type of pasta served in European countries. It's like your normal pasta, only in smaller pieces. Taste is actually close to blandness but I-love-it. And I don't know why. Haha.
128523128523128523
I think it's the counterpart of our rice so if you want to feel extra European, you should try this.
Just remember that it doesn't have much flavor except from the buttery taste; imagine a pasta without the sauce 128522 Still yummy for me! 128079🏻128079🏻128079🏻128077🏻128513128513128513

You can drop by at Brotzeit to have your sausage fix. Although I must say that this resto is pricey so make sure to prepare at least a thousand when you done here. They serve flavored German beer as well (which actually tastes good, considering that I don't drink). 128521 Price per glass is more than a hundred pesos while the sausage platter shown in picture is around Php 1,200. If you want to hang out with friends with a little more sophistication, Brotzeit is a good place. 128077🏻. Waiters automatically ask if you want another round of beer once they notice that your glass is empty. There is also an al fresco area if you wish to smoke. 128521
