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"..my 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....

  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.

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
