Brotzeit @ Westgate

Went to Brotzeit some time ago on a Friday. It’s been so long since we had pork knuckles from Brotzeit. So glad that there’s an outlet opened in Westgate so we don’t have to squeeze with the people in town.

pork knuckles

We had the signature pork knuckles. The skin is super crispy but the meat is still juicy and tender. I love the¬†sauerkraut because it’s so appetising and not too sour.

pizza

We were kinda greedy so we got a pizza as well. I love this thin crust pizza with generous amount of toppings and cheese. =)

Beer

The Brotzeit in Westgate is fully al fresco, so ice cold beer is a must in such a warm Singapore weather~

Drinks Night~

Our June gathering, only 3 made it, was fun with drinks~ LOL~ SK thinks that all gatherings that involved alcohol are fun~

We started off with 31 Bar & Kitchen along Keong Saik road. The super nice staff let us try a very smoky tequila shot when we asked her to recommend the drinks. This little brownish tequila was a killer. It’s so smoky, that I thought it must have been aged in burnt oak barrel. The charcoal taste lingered in our oral cavity for the longest time and I felt like 75 years old after sipping it. I don’t think any young pple (not that I am very young) would like the taste. Plus, it was sooooooo strong that it could probably kill all the microorganisms down the GI tract. LOL~ We said no, and chose the milder tequila instead.

Tequila Shot

So 3 of us had the milder tequila to start the night.

I had my usual Long Island Iced Tea. Min asked what’s in the drink other than Tequila, and I gave her a superb answer: a lot of things.

LOL~ That’s SK’s brain after just 1 tequila shot.
I can’t remember exactly what drinks they had, but I remembered the red one was quite tomato and tasted savory.

We were feeling very warm so the lady gave us the air con remote controller. LOL~

After that, we cabbed to Maison Ikkoku in Kandahar street.

Maison Ikkoku

Thanks to Min for recommending this very interesting bar. Basically, there is no drinks menu. So you just need to tell the staff what you feel like having and the bartender will create something for you. =)

I said I wanted something sweet but strong, and I received this pretty drink. It’s rum with lychee and edible flower petals. Can’t really taste the lychee but it’s a strong drink indeed.

Hua’s ¬†drink was something sweet with mango and it came with a flaming rosemary. I like this drink~

Min wanted something clean with Gin and cucumber. That’s hers and it’s flaming too~

For round 2, I ordered peanut butter cup but since they didn’t have peanut butter, I got a super yummy hazelnut chocolatey drink~

It’s so creamy, yet with strong alcohol. I can only describe it as liquid dessert~

Hua’s 2nd drink was strawberry based. Supposed to have the dry ice effect but it was gone before it reached the table.

We had fun playing number games and that’s our semi-drunk selfie~ It’s weird that we always think that we opened our eyes damn big but the photo shows otherwise…

Gathering at New Harbour Cafe & Bar

Had another outing end of last month with the CCC ladies. Only 4 of us could make it to the gathering. =(
Anyway, we chose New Harbour Cafe and Bar at Tanjong Pagar road because we missed the sio bak (roasted pork belly) and hokkien mee!

Beer

No gathering is legit without alcohol~

White Clams

White Clams 1

This is one of our favourites: White clams in beer stock.
Each clam is so fat and juicy. The stock is very flavorful and good for slurping~

Mah Mee

Mah Mee 1

 

Next favourite is the Mah Mee. It’s actually fried hokkien prawn noodles with the addition of clams and Chinese sausage. Each strand of noodles is nicely coated with the thick gravy. Together with the egg and garlic, the flavor is so rich and you will definitely be craving for more. Although this is not the al dente kind of noodles, it’s also not too soggy. It’s best eaten with the blended red chilli which will numb your tongue for a while. Do try it even if you can’t take spicy food because there’s always beer to cool you down~

Roasted Pork Belly

This is another favourite item there: Roast Pork Belly (Sio Bak in dialect)! Because of its popularity and quality, the waiting time is longer than the other food item. So make sure you order this first before you decide on what else to eat.
Not sure if you can see from the picture, there’s minimal fat in the roasted pork belly, almost no fat layer! Despite the minimal fat layer, the meat is really tender and the skin is super crispy. I couldn’t hear what the ladies were talking about when I was chewing on the skin.
The meat is served with a black sweet chilli sauce and the blended red chili. Eat them together for even better flavor~

LOL~ I sound like the Sio Bak’s spokesperson.

Salmon sashimi

Something that is not commonly found in a bar: Salmon Sashimi~

Fries

 

Still feeling hungry, we ordered another round of Mah Mee and some fries~

The total bill of 4 pints of beer plus the food above only cost us $130.80. There’s no GST and service charge~!

After dinner drinks

 

Post dinner drinks was at one of the bars along Tanjong Pagar road~
