German cuisine is not so represented among the metro’s restaurants, which is a shame.
German cuisine presents rich flavors and hearty servings that would appeal to the largely carnivorous Filipino palate.
Meat figures prominently in German food, with pork making up most of the meat dishes from wursts to roasts.
Take Brotzeit’s Wunderplatte/Wonder Platter (Php3,700) for example. I was able to sample this filling curation of signature German dishes and new items when I visited Brotzeit before thee quarantine.
With its tasty collection of meats in large servings, this platter is the perfect meal for people to come together to enjoy.
This jam-packed platter, which is good for up to six people, included:
Berner Sausages. Savory pork links stuffed with emmenthal cheese and wrapped in bacon.
Honey Bavarian Ribs. Fall-of-the-bone tender pork ribs coated with a unique garlic, beer and barbecue-infused sauce.
Signature Crispy Oven-Roasted Pork Knuckle. Hind shank of grain-fed pork roasted in the oven to achieve a crispy skin and tender, flavorful meat.
If all those can not make any carnivore’s mouth water, I don’t know what can!
As with most German food, the Wunderplatte was best enjoyed with another German staple: a glass of good German beer.
