House Frankfurt

Underrated & often overlooked amid the throng of Telawi's flashier eateries, House Frankfurt specializes in satisfyingly unpretentious German fare.

Pork knuckles & sausages are the menu's mainstays, but it's worth exploring adventurous recipes like this cold pickled herring with boiled potatoes, sour cream, onions & gherkins. Could be too salty & slimy for some though.

Beef tenderloin tartar. The lighter flavor & moist creaminess of minced uncooked beef with a raw egg yolk are ideal for evenings when a 300-gram medium-rare steak seems too much to tackle.

Berlin-style pan-fried beef liver with onions & mashed potatoes. A whopping serving that should be shared, especially if the gamy taste of liver isn't a turn-on for you.

Chianti Claccico.

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio.

Jaegermeister & Williams.

  6. This is where I used to make Dad take me to eat sausages! Haven't been back in awhile though..but if I saw "raw" and "uncooked" in the same sentence on a menu I would just skip to the next one..haha

  8. Oh wow.. look at the beef tartare! Reminds me of the episode of Mr Bean trying to hide it everywhere in the restaurant! :P It looked so red and raw (although it's supposed to be) how did it taste?

    Eiling: oh yeah, i think it might have been here for over a decade already! nice to see that a good eatery can keep going strong for so long =)
    Iamthewitch: heh, i haven't watched that episode of mr bean, but it sounds pretty hilarious! the beef tartar tastes like tuna sashimi, sort of, except with a more meaty flavor, heh :D
