Our Visit to Weissbrau German Cuisine In Straits Quay, Penang

Second night in Penang...

Feeling disappointed with our lunch as written in this post, we were looking forward to having a nice dinner in Straits Quay, Tanjung Tokong.  This time we wanted to try German food and we heard some positive comments about Weissbrau, a bistro and bar that serves their specialties such as pork knuckle, sausages, pizzas, roesti etc etc....
Ok, so here we are.... with an added member... 
(the new face is my nearly-to-be Godson)
"My best friend" son teased...
and "Godson" answered.. "Not any more...." 
*loud laughter*
There was some Japanese performance when we reached Straits Quay...
When it ended, it was time for our dinner....

So what did we have?
German Sausages with Roesti... (hope I am right!)
I think we ordered two plates of the same sausages but different sidekicks..
Andy's meal.... German burger.. LOL...
He commented that the Pattie is really good...juicy!!
My girl's choice...
 another type of German sausages with garlic or something like that..
And Yours Truly ordered German Pork Knuckle...
My first time tasting it after hearing so much hoo-haaa.....
How's the taste?
Well, the meat was done up very well... not too dry nor was uncooked...
And the taste reminded me of a Hakka dish my MIL used to cook during CNY
With the spices, the meat was fried till crispy...
Last and not least, we ordered their German Pizza...
Very nice... I wouldn't mind having this again next time... 
(Notice that everything to me is German... LOl.. )
 After the dinner, we strolled around the area once again... and again...
and before we left, a picture to remember by....

  1. i just had a full packed dinner but yet that made me hungry as if i havent eaten yet haha

  2. A very sumptuous meal. I love German pork knuckle too...yummy!

  3. I went there alone and ordered only the German Pork Knuckle and a cup of espresso, the bill came up to RM60. The price would be ok if they had served the whole knuckle but too bad, only the hind leg was served. Well, according to the manager, that's the most tender part.

  4. Ohh... u got that dish correct la, Claire. It is Rosti. Once awhile I will make that at home too. :P Easy to make only... just nid shredded boiled potatoes and butter!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
