Geben sie mir ein bier... LIKE NOW!


My favourite sound on a hot saturday afternoon is FIZZ.


Weihenstephan Heffe & Dunkel - RM26.00/glass

My favourite colours on a hot saturday afternoon are



My favourite verb on a hot saturday afternoon is GULP.

My favourite activity on a hot saturday afternoon is watching international time FLY BY.


At STADT German Cuisine and Bistro we found the perfect place to satisfy all my favourite activities :)

Seafood Soup - RM7.90
The soup was excellent. A thick, robust savoury tomato base made fresh and infused with all the flavours of the ocean made a great appetite teaser. We were prepped for our mains.

The Pork Knuckle - RM38.90
Given the choice of Original vs. Honey glazed ,we went with the glaze version but were surprised to find the crust rather unsweetened. When asked, the waitress replied that the coating of sugar is added right at the end. Hmmmm.. we think someone might have forgotten the Honey (?)

First the skin. This was not bad at all. The skin had enough snap, crackle and pop, if you like, but the flavour could have been better.
Delving in, we found the flesh tough, dry and rather tasteless.

If not for the extra(and boy did we need plenty) brown sauce and honey sauce we ordered, the pork knuckle would have been too dry to swallow.

Having said that, the menu here at STADT is massive, and we only shared one Pork Knuckle because it was the Hefe and Dunkel that we came for really ;) We will definitely be back to try the other items.

So meanwhilst... "Geben sie mir ein bier... like now, please.." ;P

pork knuckle scored so little? another review I read at gave high marks for it

CUMI & CIKI said...

ya wor.. dunno why so dry when we had it.. the texture of the flesh was almost like as if it had been re-heated.. you know, like when the tendons and end bits start to take on a rubbery feel..? Maybe we were unlucky.
but reading your post, i think a lot more good stuff we need to try!

fatboybakes said...

ohhhh cold beer on an afternoon...wat a life..

kennhyn said...

That is one of the best Weizen Bier in Malaysia, but to go with food, I believe Hefe Weizen taste better dunkel, unless you like the roasted light sweet aroma... cheers!

Big Boys Oven said...

hmm... maybe you can give other places a try??? I just started following your blogs and therefore, don't know much about the past... but here are some places that you can consider (but if u'd gone there b4, forget it)
1) Eurodeli @ Damansara Kim
2) Meaty House @ USJ10 Taipan
There is one Chinese version at Kim Wah restaurant (same row with Eurodeli) which is buttermilk pork knuckle (gravy comes separately)
Personally, I think that those are nice... but who knows?

babe_kl said...

hmm must give this place a try since my brother told me they were rather good with some of the stuff

CUMI & CIKI said...

well yes and well spotted. Chinese chef.. sista!

yea, only the original comes with sauerkraut.. we had the honey glazed

yea, that's what i say

ah.. u obviously know your german beers

really.. didja find anything there good to eat?

you obviously like your german ;)


worldwindows said...

Overdone and bland pork knuckle, what a waste! I think it is the imported frozen one. Besides the sauce you have plenty of liquid to wash it down.

Julian Si said...

Life for Beginners said...

Hehe, just means, "I want my beer NOW!" Lol...

Simon Seow said...

Ya, food there is mediocre, still prefer Bavarian Bierhaus for the knuckle. Didn't try the German beer there though.

kennhyn said...
