This year’s concept is different from the past – its a ticketed event, tickets are sold at SGD68++ which includes a 3-course sharing platter for 2 specially curated for the Oktoberfest consisting of all their signature dishes – of course there is the juicy, tender and crispy pork knuckle!
The star is of course the special Oktoberfest brew only available during this period. An earthy, slightly sweet, caramelized aroma starts this beer off in a spectacular fashion. The excellent grain and biscuit-like malt profile gives a smooth yet complex taste and the low (but noticeable) hop flavor is well balanced.
Feeling stuffed and falling into a food coma? Fret not, take a shot of Ziegler’s Williams Pear – (is a schnapps/digestif which help aids digestion) and you will be fit to party the night away.
We got ourselves this year’s new limited edition mugs too! Aren’t they pretty?
What are you waiting for? Hurry on down and catch the band in action before they leave this weekend.
Guten Tag! Jetzt ist Spargel Zeit! (It’s Asparagus Time).
White asparagus is one of my favourite. White asparagus comes from the process of etiolation which is the deprivation of sunlight. Soil is kept mounded around the merging stalk, depriving it of light. The plant cannot produce chlorophyll without light, thus there is no green color to the stalks. Furthermore they are considered to be slightly milder in flavour and a bit more tender then the green ones.
It’s a very popular late spring/early summer dish in Germany! The asparagus is usually boiled, drizzled with either hollandaise sauce or melted butter without compromising the orginal freshness and texture of the asparagus.
You can eat it plain or pair it with cured ham, smoked salmon, boiled potatoes sprinkled with freshly cut parsley and sliced boiled eggs. But most importantly in my opinion one must have a pint or two of Maibock beer to round up this delectable meal! Proßt!
