“Decent service and Austrian-German Cuisine. Great beer selection”

Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant
Ranked #56 of 679 Restaurants in Taguig City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 December 2017

Located at ground level in the Shangri-La hotel/residence complex, Brotzeit (German for "bread time" literally but actually meaning "Snack time") offers a decent selection of wurst, schnitzel, and of course a wide selection of beers. Service prompt and friendly. We probably ordered too much to eat, but enjoyed it all. There was outdoor dining available but we chose the air-conditioned dining room. Dining at the long bar was an option but we chose to sit along the wall.

If in the mood for good German food while in BGC, definitely check out Brotzeit.

A chain store serving authentic German food. Service is efficient and staff are friendly. The place can be quite packed during peak hours, so please avoid the peak hours to avoid disappointment. Lovely soothing music and environment too. The food here is good and tasty too.

Brotzeit came up with new snacks and munchies as well as a new platter.

Here are Brotzeit's new munchies and platter that we tried:

Huhnerbrust/BBQ Chicken Fingers. Served with Bavarian BBQ sauce and sour cream dressing. Tender chicken fingers with the right amount of breading.

Gebratener Mozzarella/Fried Mozzarella. Mozarella cheese with spicy tomato sauce dip. I like how generous the amount of Mozarella is under the breading. The dip is not too spicy and goes well with the cheese.

Putin/Dirty Wedges. Crisp potato wedges topped with cheese, pickled chili, smoked bacon, sour cream and chives.

Kartoffel Kroketten/Stuffed Potato Balls. Stuffed with BBQ pork and sour cream dip. These potato balls are fun to eat.

Gebratene Zwiebelringe/Fried Onion Rings. Deep fried and served with spicy tomato sauce.

Fleischbällchen/Meatballs. Meatballs with Jaeger sauce. Tender and rich in flavor. Tastes good.

Schweinbauch/Roast Pork Belly. With rotkraut and red pepper jam. I love the pork belly. Tender, juicy, with fat that's indulging. A guilty pleasure.

Snackpackung/Savory Wraps. German pancake rolled and packed with a choice of pulled pork and cucumber, or Seafood salad. The pancake itself is really good. The pulled pork is a little spicy which gives the wrap a savory taste, while the seafood salad gives the wrap a more refreshing taste. I like the pulled pork wrap more than the seafood salad wrap.

Vatertagplatte/Father's Day Platter. Brotzeit Board laden with grilled pork chop, broiled chicken with signature spices, grilled lamb chops and crispy bacon wrapped sausages. Everything on the platter is rich in flavor, even the broiled chicken is juicy and flavorful to the bones.

Kaiserschmarren/Emperor's Cake. Shredded rum and raisin pancakes served with plum sauce.
Schokokuchen/Warm Chocolate Cake. Served with stracciatella ice cream. Best eaten together, there is a good combination of taste and contrast of temperatures.

Heisse Schokolade. Hot chocolate made with premium bittersweet dark chocolate with whipped cream. It's really hot when served so you have to take caution not to burn yourself. It's very rich and viscous, like drinking melted chocolate. It's not too sweet because it's made of dark chocolate. It's good.

Weihenstephan. Hefeweißbier (Left) and Original Hell (Right). The Hefeweißbier (Alc 5.4%) is wheat beer; smooth malt background, rich yeast flavors, spicy, with fruity banana overtones, reminiscent of clove. The Original Hell (Alc 5.1%) is Weihenstephan's original flavor; flowery, golden lager, sweet tasting with a big malty aroma, fruity, light sparkling. I like the original flavor, it's not bitter for me.

We have been to other branches of the same chain but never visited the BGC restaurant. Service could definitely improve, the beer came after the starters and we were wrongly informed about options of the mains only to be told by another staff member that our order was not possible. The food was good and pretty authentic, especially the Spätzle.

Dear NicCan136,

Our team have discussed this and are making adjustments already. Baked spinach spaetzle for lunch is a must try! Cheers!

I love the interior of this place--it's a good place for a group of five or so. Music was not too loud and members of the staff are attentive to your needs. I even got a free ice cream since it was my birthday dinner.
