Recently, Brotzeit Vivo City unveiled a new, modern look and a few delicious additions to the menu. The decor is warm and friendly with long wooden tables and benches, making it a great place to meet up with family and friends for a fun casual meal. If you haven’t yet been already, be prepared for wonderful German comfort food. Here are my five favorite dishes that I would highly recommend on your next visit.
1. Going light? Go for the Feta and Greens Salad
This salad is fresh and crunchy with red bell peppers and generous chunks of feta cheese. It’s the perfect way to start your meal at Brotzeit and is a great appetizer to share with a friend. Don’t fill up too much though, because the best is on it’s way!
2. Ultimate German Comfort Food: Goulash Soup
It might have a funny name but this Goulash soup is seriously scrumptious. The chef explained that the ingredients are imported from Europe and the recipe requires hours of slow cooking– This makes the meat incredibly, melt-in-your-mouth tender. The herbs and spices give the soup the perfect warming flavors that a true comfort food should have.
3. Sharing is Caring: Charcuterie Platter
This gorgeous meat and cheese platter is not only a beautiful centerpiece, but it’s also the perfect starter to share with the whole table. It is huge, so you can be sure no one will miss out. It’s also the perfect plate to order if you want to do an after-work drink and snack with friends.
4. Go Big or Go Home: Roasted Pork Knuckle with Veal Goulash and Sausages
I really think this dish speaks for itself. The pork knuckle in particular was one of my favorite things at Brotzeit. It reminds me a little bit of the tender, delicious Texas BBQ pork ribs that I have only ever really had at home…In Texas. Of course, it does have it’s own flavor and spices which make it uniquely German and it is certainly not to be missed.
5. Something to Celebrate? Go for The Dessert Medley
Why choose 1 dessert when you can choose all? I guess that’s how the Dessert Medley was born, and it’s not a bad idea at all. It’s a great way for the table to get to try all of the indulgent sweets: Homemade Crepes, Molten Chocolate Cake, Ice Cream and Apple Strudel. I am a molten chocolate cake kind of girl, and this one is certifiably fantastic.
There are some other new features that are a part of the upgraded Brotzeit, such as the delicatessen area where you can buy signature sausages as well as pantry goods all imported from Europe. They also have a variety of German beers on tap and a Keg wall for some fun photos.
I love that you can do your shopping around the mall and then pop in for a casual and delicious meal. While I only mentioned my top 5 favorite dishes, everything I tried at the new and improved Brotzeit was very well-prepared and full of flavor. If you go and try some of my recommendations, I’d love to hear what you think, so don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
