Weissbrau, literally meaning White Brew, is a tribute to great German cuisine. Located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, the outlet is tucked into a corner of the mall’s Connection area and is very popular with KL-lites. It exudes a casual atmosphere, and offers an alfresco dining experience with a lovely view of the mall’s most popular walkway.

The Pavilion Kuala Lumpur outlet is Weissbrau’s first in Malaysia and offers Malaysians an authentic introduction to German cuisine. Weissbrau’s menu offers a wide range of German delights that were selected by Master Chef Pascal Schnyder, including sandwiches and burgers, gourmet sausages, salads and soups, as well as a traditional German favourite, the Alsatian Flammkuchen.

For those unfamiliar to this dish, think of it as a very thin circular crepe masquerading as an Italian pizza. Choose either the Original, with sour cream and roasted onions or the Italian Touch, with a touch of tomato flavour, baked with mozzarella cheese on top. All Weissbrau’s flammkuchen come with a variety of toppings, from the more traditional ingredients like mushroom, bacon, honey ham and parma ham, to more exciting flavours such as smoked salmon, seafood and even light curried chicken! Do not fret if you cannot decide on what toppings you want, as you can get order one that offers all toppings in one flammkuchen.

All Weissbrau’s burgers are pork burgers, and taste absolutely lovely! The homemade pork patty is succulent and juicy, which is great as most burgers tend to be a bit dry. The remaining ingredients that accompany the patty in the burger complements the meat, ensuring that each scrumptious bite will be savoured and remembered. Weissbrau offers three types of burgers, the Bavarian Bacon Cheese, the Swiss Mushroom Cheese and the Frankfurt Meister.

No German food experience would be complete without sausages, and Weissbrau offers some great sausages, both local and imported. Beginners should start with the classic all pork Frankfurter and explore other varieties like the Smoked Garlic Sausage and the Emmentaler, a pork and emmental cheese mix. Mixed meat sausages include the Schwiez Cervela – ground beef and pork, wrapped with bacon and cheese, and the Veal Bratwurst – pork with veal. The biggest sausage that Weissbrau has to offer is the Schublig, made of beef and pork, which is lightly smoked. Most patrons, especially those in groups, favour the sausage combo as a shared appetiser before starting on their main course.

While classic German fare featuring pork like Crispy German Pork Knuckle, pork ribs and schnitzels (fried breadcrumb coated porkloin) are popular at Weissbrau, the outlet offers other European delights such as beef lasagne, hungarian beef goulash, Australian rib eye and even chicken cordon bleu. Most of the main dishes are served with various side dishes, including the French inspired rosti, shredded potato strips pan-fried in clarified butter, and sauerkraut.

Like any true German restaurant, Weissbrau offers an extensive selection of beer, including local favourites Carlsberg and Hoegaarden. But what sets Weissbrau apart from the rest would be the availability of specialty beers, including Schneider Weisse’s line of wheat beer. Our visit to Weissbrau @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur coincided with the launch of Schneider Weisse’s beer at Weissbrau, so we had the opportunity to sample an old German tradition. Weissbrau now offers three types of Schneider Weisse beers – the Unser Original, Mein Kristall and the Meine blonde Weisse. The Unser Original is brewed to the original recipe of Georg Schneider,the brewery founder of 1872, after he acquired the rights to brew wheat beer from King Ludwig II. Mein Kristall is the lightest of the three beers, and is a perfect companion for light dishes, while Meine blonde Weisse strikes a balance between the other two beers, and possesses a refreshing and soothing flavour.
