Oktoberfest eats and drinks

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.

Except Paulaner.

Dats ma boy

You’re ma boy!

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.

U kidding me?

Haha. Like i said..

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.

Comes with green stuff

Pancakes? Dessert?? Fuggedaboutit, was stuffed. But the prep looked kinda interesting, with flames and great smells of the cherry and alcohol toasting up.

The witch got busy

The witch got busy. And warm

Tried some. Rocked.

Unlike many other Bavarian breweries, that serve wheat beers, Paulaner serves a lager for Oktoberfest. A crisp, clean one.

Emptied my bladder just lookin at it

Makes i wanna empty my bladder just by lookin at it

Luuurv the Paulaner Dunkel. Could probably have a glass every morning with bacon. Perfect.


Dont stop ma man

Yea dont stop now ma man. (Or woman)

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.

New kid in TTDI

Had a blast at da launch of Tom Dick & Harry’s (7710-2122), a new bar in TTDI. All beers on tap were flowing – Hoegaarden, Blackthorn (cider), Tetley’s, Connor’s (stout) & Carlsberg. (No Guinness as its a Carlsberg Malaysia outlet.)

It’s a bar started by a friend and a few of his buds.

Pricing is OK, a lil above average for a neighborhood pub. I did expect Hoegaarden’s price to be friendlier. At 30 bucks a pint, its steep just for a beer. ($25 happy hours, 4pm-8pm.) A mug of Carlsberg is $12 ($9), while Connor’s is $22 ($18). There’s a range of Macallan and other single malts, with prices from $398 – $898. All figures are nett.

Cocktails n shooters go for $16 – $33.

Vodka, rum, bourbon are priced about $300. There’s absinthe here as well: $338 & $398 – cheaper than most outlets that serve absinthe.

All ready and lined-up

Some of the bites available

Havent really tried the grub (Tried!). There’s usual pub stuff like Pigs in Blanket, burgers, a couple of pastas, a variety of pies, and desserts too. Pork is served. Yea!

With four bars on this street, the scene is a lot livelier, and competition stiffer. Which is of course good news. Especially now dat its a particularly interesting Party Season. Daaam.

A buddy of mine is opening a new bar in TTDI called Tom, Dick & Harry’s. It’s not open to the public yet, but checked it out last week for a recce & a drink.




A wet dry-run

Macallan fans will be pleased that d bar carries almost the entire range.

It serves food too. A slightly more detailed report will be up soon. The outlet is located on the same street as Sid’s on Lrg Rahim Kajai 14, and will be operating for the public from Friday, Dec 4.
