Hofbräuhaus (Invited)

Hofbräuhaus opened since 1968, an impressive 50 years on Market Lane, Melbourne. Well known for Bavarian food, Bier, fun and fröhlich. They are very proud of their heritage, especially their bier. Imported and hand-picked from the finest breweries in Bavaria. Dining at Hofbräuhaus is all about the whole experience.

Starting with spotting their traditional sign in front then opening their door, bam! Transported to German. I have been there and it's exactly like the real German tavern. Dim lighting with traditional dark wood decoration as well as hanging lights, just like in Game of Thrones. The music amped up the experience even more with eclectic music and the staff with their German uniform.

Bier is a must, they have small till one litre size for one single person. Heaven for bier lover. Both bier that we ordered were really nice, with a lil bit of sweetness. We picked their healthy bier menu because we are pretty curious about that.

Kids Mac and Cheese with free ice cream. The mac and cheese was so good that not only my kid eat a whole chunk of it but we keep munching and stealing it from him as well. It also comes in a very generous sauce.

Goulasch Suppe - Traditional beef soup served with a freshly baked German bread roll ($14.5) arrived. The bread roll was warm and fluffy but the soup needed a lil bit of freshness cause it's so deep and rich, almost sauce like rather than soup. I have been to Hungary before and I love goulasch, that's why I order them again here.

Käsespätzle - Haus-made German egg noodles baked with fresh herbs, spinach, cream & gratinated Swiss cheese, served with side salad ($23.5). This is their best seller, according to Phillip the owner of Hofbräuhaus. Seriously, I underestimate it cause how can egg noodles with vegies beats pork knuckle right? I was damn wrong. We love it so much, so creamy, cheesy and delicious.

HB Feast Platter - Kassler, pork belly, knuckle, sausages, schnitzel, sauerkraut, mashed potato, braised red cabbage, haus-made pork jus, mix leaf salad ($105). A platter to impress, for sure. Super generous gigantic size. It got everything that you would ever wanted in a German tavern. All star plate indeed and note this, everything, yes everything in this platter is delicious. No fluke whatsoever. Crispy skin, tender meat, not too oily. Flavourful various sausage and sweet pork loin. On top of that one of the best schnitzel in town, crispy skin, juicy chicken as well as flavourful, which pretty hard to achieve from chicken breast.

Schokokuchen - Warmed, flourless chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberry ($15.5). The dessert is where it falls down a bit, the cake came to our table ice cold. Making it hard and dense.
