Bavarian Bierhaus, The Curve, Mutiara Damansara

How was your Chinese New Year?

Mine was pretty much a routine; feast, watch TV, nap, snack (while watching TV), feast, sleep..for a week! Gosh, I'm still amazed that I've only piled on 1 pound (thank god!), though I feel real fat now..hahaha

Since it's lots of meat and fatty stuff during the CNY, I might as well continue with some meaty post :p

Sweet friends of mine bought me a belated birthday dinner last month and since we were catching a movie at Cineleisure, we decided to have dinner at Bavarian Bierhaus..
We were seated very quickly, menu promptly placed on our table..
Some salad before we attack the meat..hence the Pancetta salad (Rm15). I love the sweet tangy vinaigrette dressing they used; tossed with tomatoes, french beans, quail eggs, tuna chunks and topped with pancetta; makes this a really appetising salad. Very nice indeed, though the serving was a tad small..
Andrew insisted to have the Pork Knuckle with garlic and herb sauce (RM52), rather than the more popular Pork Knuckle with Smoked Bacon and Honey–Pepper Glaze with Sauerkraut and Sautéed Potatoes.
Bavarian Bierhaus's Pork Knuckle looks gorgeous, sitting prettily on a bed of mash; I'm not sure if it's due to the dim lights, but, it almost, just almost, took my breath away.. The skin was very crispy and we were fighting for the biggest piece..haha..drizzled with the creamy garlic sauce; it was utterly sinful but we yearned for more..
Elaine wanted me to share the shot of the tender meat..I was very glad that the meat was juicy and tender; eating it was so fuss free. By far, this was one of the best I've tried as the meat have a lovely smoky flavour which blends so well with the sauce. Just perfect.
Before we could further gorge ourselves with more pork knuckle, the Mix Sausages Platter (RM58) was placed on our table.. About 6-7 sausages of various varieties and sizes, this dish was beckoning us to devour it. My fave was the lamb sausage; the gamey lamb flavour was enticing; got me hooked the moment I sinked my teeth into it. The other pork sausages (I'm not sure of the names) were pretty good; one was spicier (could that be chorizo?), another was a tad sweet (like taiwanese sausages) but all goes well with the various dollop of sauces at the base of the plate. There were 2 types of mustard sauce, mint sauce, mayonnaise with herbs/ spices which complemented the sausages very well. The least popular was the white coloured sausage (is that veal sausage?) which was rather soft for our liking..
Downed some beers and drinks, we were real stuffed by the time we wiped everything clean..hehe
Thanks Andrew, Elaine and WF for the wonderful dinner and lovely company. And the pictures we took there? Priceless..
Am still laughing everytime I look at it :D
