Such tragic ending for the pig :(
Am I the last food blogger to ever blog about this? But like they say, "Better be LATE than NEVER!"
Ok, so I have in mind all you readers out there already know the existence of this German restaurant in The Curve that is famous for their BIG beer kegs (Paulaner I think?) and BIG pork knuckles and BIG sausages. They say everything is BIGGER in Texas but I think German deserves a mention too.
As for Malaysia, well we have the BIGGEST mooncake, BIGGEST ketupat, BIGGEST lemang and whatnot as well!
House Specialty Pork Knuckle- RM58
To be honest, the pork knuckle is really HUGE! Those pigs must be damn well fed! Upon dissecting it, well I guess what makes this body part HUGE is cos of the fats... A caution should be placed on all pork knuckle dish (western or chinese)- Beware of Fats. Eat At Your Own Risk!
It was deep fried to perfection, crispy, crunchy, meaty and fatty as well. It goes well with the brown sauce and mustard too. The potatoes were good too, I love potatoes done in this way.
Mixed Sausage Platter- RM70
I am a great BIG fan of meaty sausages and this comes as another must order as seen in everyone else's blogs. There are at least 10 variants of bratwurst on the platter- lamb, beef and chicken served with a side of sauerkraut (finely shredded cabbage that has been fermented) and potato salad with bacon bits.
Another caution on this dish- Can be Very Very Very Filling.
A glimpse at the next table, one whole family of 5 persons were having the same dishes as us, while there were only 2 of us! Hahahaha, certainly overdosed with meat. But no wastage though, as I took away the sausages and had it for breakfast for 3 days.
The Curve, PJ.
