Weissbräu German Bistro & Bar Invited Review

Posted by Food Promotions On Thursday, March 03, 2011
Weissbräu German Bistro & Bar situated at North Block of newly opened Straits Quay, Penang, had just started its operation for 3 months. The branch which is in Kuala Lumpur is situated at ‘Connection’ level of Pavilion.

The word Weissbräu is a combination of German word ‘Weiss’ for white and bräu for brew, which refers to as white brew or white beer (Most popular and common beer in Germany). Weissbräu Penang German Bistro & Bar seats around 70 people indoor and 100 people at Alfresco. Reservation is recommended especially for dinner hour and weekends.


This restaurant was designed in a simple yet modern style with some wooden seating areas and bar concept. This creates the coziness of the ambiance.



This restaurant serves wide selection of German cuisine like pork specialties, sausages, pizzas, roesti, and imported draught & bottled beers.

Last weekend, we were invited to Weissbräu German Bistro & Bar for food tasting together with the other food bloggers. Appointing Wayne Yoon to head this outlet, we were honored to savor their newly German culinary creations.

Here are some of the culinary creations which we have tasted.

From the range of Hearty meal, Crispy German Pork Knuckle RM48++
with side dish of Roesti and Sauerkraut

According to Wayne, the knuckle will be pickled for 2 or 3 days and this consequently creating minimal amount of fats in the pork. It is cooked with beef stock and red wine sauce. The tenderness of the texture of the meat is nice when it is eaten together with the Sauerkraut (Shredded Cabbage in white wine vinegar) which consists of mild acidity. Apart from this, the Roesti which was served together with this meal tasted quite nice to our palates. The Roesti is actually a Swiss German part signature which is made from shredded Potato strips pan-fried in clarified butter.

Giant Wienerschnitzel RM34++
with side dish of lightly pan-fried Spaetzli (home-made egg noodles) and Buttered Market Vegetables

Poached Salmon Fillet RM38++
with side dish of Potato Salad and Sauerkraut

From top:Flammküchen Pizza - Original RM24++
Mushroom Pizza - Italian Touch RM28++

As Germany borders countries are France, Switzerland and Belgium, some of its influences are seen in the menu too, such as Pissaladière the popular pizza from Southern France. It is a thin crust dough topped with sour cream, roasted onion, anchovies and olives, quickly baked in oven.

Butter Swiss Roesti (Traditional Swiss Potato Dish) with egg, pork bacon & cheese RM24.00++
The specialty of this Roesti is that you can add the toppings that you like at different prices. The basic roesti starts at Rm 13.80++

Classic Caesar RM16.80++
Crisp head lettuce comprises of their homemade mayonnaise, tomatoes, and croutons topped with parmesan cheese. Salad may be add on with Light Curried Chicken @ RM 6.00++ or Smoked Salmon @ RM8++.

Schüblig RM42++
A lightly smoked giant sausage made from selected cuts of beef and pork, mixed with our own special blend of spices chili.

The sausages were meaty, juicy, and very flavorful. As for the Garlic Mashed potato, it was quite rich and creamy with a fluffy texture.

Customers are free to choose either 1 side dish or 1 vegetable or even a choice of two side dish or vegetables on top of the main course/hearty meal.

• Side Dish: Potato Salad, Garlic Mash, Spaetzi or Roesti
• Vegetable: Buttered Market Vegetables or Sauerkraut

According to Wayne, Weissbräu German Bistro & Bar will launch the remodeled menu soon and we were lucky to savor the newly created dishes. Price are still unavailable at the moment.

Homemade Sausages
(Chili pork sausage, Herbs Pork Sausage and Garlic Peppercorn Pork Sausage)

The Homemade herb(Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme and Basil) sausages are smoked for 4 hours before they are ready to be served. They are new items and are currently off the ala-carte menu but is available upon request.

For desserts, we are served with 2 types of desserts, Apple Strudel and Chocolate Mousse. The homemade fillings of the Apple Strudder perfectly suit our taste buds for it is not too sweet and a bit sourly. It is served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Whereas, Chocolate Mousse is rich with the chocolate flavor that melts in the mouth.

Chocolate Mousse
Thick Chocolate mousse blended in VSOP for richness

Apple Strudel
Filo Pastry stuffed with green apple cube prepared with nutmeg, white raisin and sugar syrup and top with crunchy sugar bits

Besides the food, the restaurant’s bar offers a wide selection of imported draught & bottled beers.
