The first keg has been tapped at Munich Brauhaus for the start of Oktoberfest!
Gastrology recently celebrated Oktoberfest with Munich Brauhaus, the proper way with big food and exclusive biers.
Munich Brauhaus is where Munich meets Melbourne. Bringing to life a traditional Bavarian bierhaus, the restaurant is the best place to celebrate Oktoberfest. A place to dine, drink and party in a state-of-the-art waterfront venue which seats over 900 people.
The space embodies the heart and soul of Munich and boasts three distinct bars: The Wundabar; Jäger Bar; and Über Bar. Each perfect for after-work or casual weekend steins.
We enjoyed their Oktoberfest Set menu alongside the exclusive Oktoberfest biers from Lowenbrau, Spaten, Hofbräu, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.
Munich Tasting Platter: Crackling Pork Belly, Smoked Sausages, Char Grilled Bratwurst, Roast Pork Knuckle, Crunchy Schnitzel, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage, Apple Compote, Crispy Onion Rings & Bier Jus
The Munich Tasting Platter was the showstopper to what was a fabulous dinner. It comprised of a respectable assembly of Crackling Pork Belly, Artisanal Haus-made and Smoked Sausages, Crisp Roasted Pork Knuckle and Schnitzel as well as sides and sauces (Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage, Apple Compote, Mashed Potatoes and Bier Jus).
The guys at Munich Brauhaus have truly mastered the art of pork roasting. The pork belly was succulently roasted to retain a porky juiciness, achieving a healthy layer of melt-in-the-mouth fat in the process. The pork knuckle was yet another memorable item on the platter which combined flawless texture with equally superlative flavours. Each moreish morsel was tender.
The feature item on both the knuckle and the belly, the crackling, possessed the ultimate crunch and acted as the ideal partner for the tender pork meat.
