Haxenhaus @ The Pier
These days, German restaurants can be found in almost every drinking spot in Singapore. They offer not only crisp fresh beer, but also excellent beer food such as the crispy pork knuckle.
Have not been to Robertson area for a few months, and discovered this rather new German restaurant Haxenhaus.
I can imagine how rowdy and noisy this place is in the evening, but come afternoon it's peaceful and quiet. You can even enjoy the breeze while sitting outside.
They have a wide variety of special German beers.
Ordered a tall glass of Holler-Weisse (S$14 for 1 pint)
Started off our brunch with a bowl of Gulasch Soup (S$9). Rather thick, but quite yummy.
Tyrolean Dumpling (S$9) - We didn't really know what it was, but when it came we were quite excited to see that it's a giant meatball. For 2 of us, we had quite a difficult time finishing this. It's really big, and filled us quite quickly because it was stuffed with bread inside.
Sausage Platter (S$23) - Find it ok and quite ordinary. Like the mashed potatoes.
Nearly fainted when they bright out the Crispy Pork Knuckle (S$31). It was huge. I think it should be shared among 4 diners. And it was served with another of the huge dumpling.
Fortunately, the pork was juicy and a joy to eat. But the skin was a bit "chao tar".
