Dinner @ Brotzeit 313 Somerset
We first stepped into Brotzeit Vivocity about a year ago, as the boy likes sausages and of course, beer. I didn't have a particular liking for sausages as I could not think of it as real food, but only as breakfast food, kid's finger food, or cinema food.
I've accompanied the boy to Brotzeit a few times since then, and have started to acquire a liking for certain kinds of sausages, especially if they came in crispy casings. The fact that the German restaurant serves their sausages with a huge helping of sauerkraut helped a lot too.
We usually order the Wurstelplatte platter for two ($32.50) whenever we dine there. It consists of a mix of spicy chicken sausage, mini pork-beef cheese sausage, pork bratwurst, weistwurst sausage, and garlic sausage. The platter comes with sauerkraut, pickles and a trio of dipping sauces - mustard, sweet mustard and chilli.
My favourite of the lot, the spicy chicken sausage with the red chilli bits.
The boy would order a beer or two, and I would order their Apfelschorler, which is 100% apple juice mixed with sparkling mineral water. Looking at the difference in size, you can tell that one glass of apple juice wouldn't be quite enough. Oh, and did I ever tell you that fizzy apple juices taste like beer to me? Only sweeter and much better. I wish they came in pints.
