Karl's Beisl

Does the doctor insist that your cholesterol level is too low?
Karl's Beisl will fix that! SohoKL's newest outlet specializes in all things pork, from Serrano ham to Iberico ribs.

Alas, there were only two of us that evening, so we couldn't order much.

The roasted suckling pig (this was a quarter-portion) was huge and fatty with impressively crisp skin. But El Cerdo's version still rules.

Now this was terrific. Choucroute Garnie, comprising pork belly, kassler ham, bratwurst, frankfurter, bread dumpling and sauerkraut. Sinfully delicious; if you're a pork fanatic and you love variety, then this is the platter to order.

The pork knuckle however was so-so. It was OK but kinda dry in parts.

Awesomely buttery mashed potatoes and relatively blah sauerkraut.

De Bortoli dB Selection Shiraz Cabernet (Aust). Went well with the food.
