Paulaner is one of ’em popular beers for Oktoberfest, a 16-day festival that takes place in Germany’s Bavaria, specifically in Munich. However it actually ends in early October. Strange. Probably too damn cold to go on.
The party started in 1810, coz Prince Ludwig married someone. And they lived happily ever after, and thanks to them, there was a good dose of Paulaner beers at The Boathouse (03 7727-4426) in KL’s Taman Tun Dr Ismail, which was accompanied by German food items. None of which i could pronounce.
We began the food part cheesily. I dig cheese. Obatzda is a simple nibbler with ultra-creamy, custard-like cheese, with bits in it. Onion bits. Great with bread, or neat.
Then it was time for Griessnockerlsuppe mit Leberknodel (I’m serious). It’s soup with liver bits in it. It’s liver that dont taste like liver. Not being a liver fan, i wolfed in anyway coz it was done like meatballs. I dig meatballs. Yess. I dig meatballs.
And pizza. Pizaaaaaaa…
In fact, i dreamt bout pizza last night. A long, rectangular pizza. But it was slightly overdone.
The Steckerlf… watever is a an interesting fish dish, coz it’s BBQed. I didnt think they had BBQs in Germany.
Great company to beer, this fish. Besides the smiling face, it’s got a slightly crispy skin and moist meat. Perfectly done. Compliments to Chef Law, and to the fish.
Since my stomach has shrunk significantly (affects solids, not liquids. Liquids sail right thru), i started to struggle when Rinderr…sumtin appeared. But whatever little i had was good. It’s beef roulade, meaning it’s rolled up like a .. hmm.. gotta think for this one.
Yea, like that sponge cake roll thing. Makes it tender and easy to enjoy. Minced n all.
Pancakes? Dessert?? Fuggedaboutit, was stuffed. But the prep looked kinda interesting, with flames and great smells of the cherry and alcohol toasting up.
Tried some. Rocked.
Unlike many other Bavarian breweries, that serve wheat beers, Paulaner serves a lager for Oktoberfest. A crisp, clean one.
Luuurv the Paulaner Dunkel. Could probably have a glass every morning with bacon. Perfect.
You can enjoy the same feast at The Boathouse (closed Sundays tho) during the month of October. The whole month. Coz we take our beer-drinking seriously.
