Munich Gastro Bierhaus @ IOI Boulevard Puchong


Puchong might be considered a wasteland for Western food, but Munich Gastro Bierhaus has started a mini-revolution here, offering pork-laden German fare that seems more suited for places like Pavilion or Jaya One.


Sausage combo, featuring grilled spicy Italian, German "black forest," English Oxford & Boerwurst sausages. Hearty and juicy; ideal for sharing.


Honey-glazed pork knuckle. Tender meat, crisp skin. Fulfilled the basic requirements for a good knuckle, but lacked that sinfully satisfying layer of fat underneath the skin.


BBQ pork ribs. Terribly tough. The total opposite of "fall off the bone." We had to use our fingers to strenuously tear the misbegotten meat off the bone.


Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit (Belgium). Note the censorship on the bottle.


Weihenstephan Hefe (Germany).

  4. tng: the ribs failed to rise to the occasion, but the sausages sure did! :D
    lfb: alas, such sausages are hard to come by! perhaps u could point me in the direction of some :P
    qwazymonkey: i sympathize with the person who has to black out all those parts on every bottle! =) yeah, there's gotta be hundreds of restaurants in puchong, but 90 percent seem to serve chinese food, dim sum, vegetarian stuff...

  5. they are doing good for your health on the pork knuckle there... probably they don't wanna risk having to call emergency numbers in case of cardiac arrest :P
    a lot of new places mushrooming in IOI Boulevard.. next time try the steamboat there, worth trying

  6. leo: heheh, but it's much less fun without that layer! anyways, my health checkup readings recently came back ok, so i can still indulge safely, it seems! =) hmmmm, not a real fan of steamboat, honestly, though i did like the damansara village one...

  8. eiling: the menu was promising, but there are too many hits and misses in the food. it's worth checking out if you're in puchong, but no point traveling there just for this, since there are so many other better pork places in the klang valley =)

  9. Well, me... I only know good sausage when I see some. Where to find... now that's a different story altogether. :P

  10. lfb: sounds like all the good sausages are in hiding! but is it enough to merely look at a good sausage to know it's good? i tend to utilize as many other senses as possible :P

  11. Pray tell, how does one hear a sausage? :P

  12. lfb: welllll, touch, taste and smell, definitely useful, rite. and maybe the sound that a sausage makes if u, ermmm, flop it around is an indication of its quality? :P

  13. Floppy sausages? I don't think I like my sausages quite so floppy. :P
