Bavarian Bierhaus @ The Curve

I remember among this particular group of boys or (rather, males), conversations always seem to evolve between girls and pork.

Don't ask me why, but we would plan trips to eat Bak Kut Teh, aim to achieve a claypot for more then 2 normal human beings PER pax and even suggest that we should have a quiet night before the trip instead of hitting the clubs and bars to find girls.

That conversation will then spawn to another infamous topic/question:

"Will you marry your loved one (be it male / female (although in our case, female, thank you very much) and somehow coincidentally (because love is blind) she is Muslim, thus marrying her will involve amongst other things; stop eating pork"?

It gets more complicated when we add another dimension of money, what if she was filthy rich, allowing you to live the lifestyle you always dreamt of, posh cars, VIP treatment and respect?

Easy answer, everyone after contemplating, will eventually choose pork. Haha, gluttons at their very best.

---

Now, pork doesnt stop at Bak Kut Teh of course, there also include pork knuckles and Bavarian Bierhaus does make the knuckle a very mean dish (in a good sense).

To accompany with some brilliant Paulaner on the tap, you get a very satisfied customer who doesnt mind paying the money to come back again.

Now, this was ages ago, so if i am not mistaken, its RM25 per pint.

A mustard-like sauce to accompany the mother of all knuckles

The crispy pork knuckles apparently is not enough to send your cholestrol high enough so you can achieve nirvana status, so they decided adding some more bacon might do the trick. Thank god for the sauerkraut that brings us back to Earth, if not, i am sure i am not the only one who would have prefer to stay up there. (RM65++ for the trip)

Between 3 pax, eventhough it was meant to be a light dinner, we added another pork dish, if i am not mistaken some pork chop that was decent as well, but obviously hard to topple the knuckle.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Get over the part that you have to part your money for knuckles and beer, and you will learn how to enjoy the experience. Its nothing like a nice cold beer and some pork.

Have a good weekend fellows!

The flu bug is really irritating the shits out of me...ARGH!

Nothing like being knuckled down in authentic German (I hope?) restaurant. The rest from the are mere shadows of the original.

Oh trust me, the original fare in M√ľnchen is far superior... I miss it so! Dude, we should do a food tour of Bavaria one day! Jom pegi? :D

I tried the original pork knuckles from Munich...and I agree with LFB, it really is nicer.

I remember paying about 15 euros for a good-sized knuckle - more than enough for 2.

Hoegaarden is Belgium Beer or course you can't get it at Bavarian place. :)
