Before the double bass rehearsal yesterday, I had lunch with Emily and XM at Paulaner Bräuhaus. It prides itself as Singapore's only German microbrewery and restaurant. It is located at Millenia Walk, but I found it easier to walk to the restaurant from Suntec Singapore.
The restaurant has a nice ambience during the daytime. What I like most is the Executive Set Lunch offered by the restaurant. This promotional executive set lunch makes lunch at Paulaner Bräuhaus so much more affordable. For the price of S$$16.95 (excludes service charge and applicable taxes), one could enjoy a two-course meal with a choice of appetiser and main course, with a soft drink. (The Executive set lunch promotion is available from 12 noon - 2:30pm, Mondays to Fridays.)
For the appetizer, I ordered the Creamy Asparagus Soup with Grilled Scallops. It was a nice combination and I love the warmness of the soup. Emily allowed me to try the Avocado Salad that she had ordered. I like the taste of avocado.
I ordered the German Home-style Chicken "Gröstl" and the sides that came along with it. However, I realised that I would have preferred my main dish to come with some green sides. As such, while I did finish every single bit of my main dish, I had wished I had ordered something else. I sampled some bites from the main dish that Emily ordered, and it was good! I like the texture of the rice croquette.
To end the meal sweet, we ordered and shared a Rote Grütze. The description for this dessert goes as such: "Traditional red wine stewed mixed berries
Served with vanilla ice cream". I love the mixed berries for their texture and bursting berry-flavour.
Emily overheard that the Grilled Pork Knuckle from Paulaner Bräuhaus is one of the recommended dishes. If I have a chance to dine there again, that shall be something I would consider trying.
With its cosy and quiet ambience, generally friendly service and the affordable lunch sets, I think Paulaner Bräuhaus is one good place to have lunch at, especially on special occasions. You can check out its website for more information: http://www.paulaner.com.sg
