Weissbrau @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

I have this misconception that one should not drive down right to middle of the KL city on a Friday night for dinner.

So when we found ourselves starving at 8pm, we looked at each other and decided that it is time to put the misconception to grave or end up in the grave for being foolish enough.

It must have been the stars being extra shiny because in no time were we in Pavilion, facing almost non existent traffic. So it was indeed feasible to have a slightly late dinner in town on Fridays!

After being disappointed at the Tangs sale where i couldnt get anything; Fred Perry and FCUK was not on sale, no half price discounts applied to the cufflinks, we left finding dinner.

Where, oh where?

There.

Theres a thing i miss about my old Fridays and it is the periodic beer drinking. The good old days of happy hour fridays. Now, i get to enjoy a beer or two and apparently an upgrade from Tiger Beer to HoeGaarden.

Weissbrau serves food that we identify as german; the knuckle and sausages, with sides like spatzle. I was about to say so is Rosti but turns out its Swiss.

The mixed sausages are well, sausages. I prefer thicker sausages which packs more meat rather than long and skinny ones. The brown sauce tasted delicious and the side of spatzle excited only when i ordered it because it was like a chewy piece of pasta.


Thank god for the pork knuckle and the rosti. The knuckle is as good as any out there and i would have prefer a more crispier rosti.

All in all, a good non halal meal; pork and alcohol in a convenient location of a shopping mall but prices aren't too cheap, the meal being about RM120++.

Address and contact details:

Level 3, Pavilion
Tel: 03-2142 0288

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Look forward to trying out more pub grub from this place.

my traffic woes are the other way around. working in the city, it's agony trying to get out to suburbs after office hours (it definitely seems easier to get INTO the city at that point). so 4 out of 5 weekdays, dinner will be in the city...
yeah, the most satisfying sausages are the ones we can sink our teeth into and really chomp down like cavemen! :D

Wah.
Expensive!

But I guess it is in Pavilion after all so high prices are to be expected....

Wow you ain't kidding about the stars being extra shiny... I've absolutely tossed out the idea of getting to the city on Fri nights at a decent hour. Last attempt took me 1 hour 30 mins. Not had spatzle though... I have high chew threshold so I think I may like this!

minchow: well i somehow did it and survived at 8pm..!!

j: ok la, 2 beers and 2 mains..the beers are already like 25++ each..

sean: i feel for u..yes the other way around is bad!

I like the spatzle here. And I reckon Weissbrau is still one of the better eateries at Pavilion. :-)

I wonder if they serve Käsespätzle, my favourite cheesy spätzle with fried onions on top. Now that's what I call great Friday nite grub!

P.S. Ditto on the sausages. I like them thicker too. ;)
