Bavarian restaurants plate up pork perfection

Monday, 8 April 2019: Munich Brauhaus, The Bavarian and The Bavarian Beerhaus have bolstered their menus for autumn, adding two, hearty, pork platters that are jam-packed with warming flavours and spices.

These magnificent meals are the ultimate comfort food and excellent value for money, featuring a selection of classic, pork cuts and BBQ flavours, with traditional side dishes and house-made sauces.

The classic pork platter ($35pp) is a meat-lover’s dream, with a hefty pork knuckle as the centrepiece. Slices of crackling and smoked pork belly also feature, alongside char-grilled Nurnberger pork sausage, which is stuffed with fragrant herbs and spices. Pork-belly bao buns are topped with
house-made BBQ sauce and cabbage slaw.

The BBQ pork platter ($35pp) is inspired by classic, southern-American flavours, and comprises of three styles of pork. Spiced, pulled pork is rubbed with cumin, mustard, onion and garlic, slow-cooked for four hours, then shredded and mixed with house-made BBQ sauce. Pork ribs are basted with a spice mix of ground coffee, cumin and cayenne pepper, smoked for four hours, and topped with BBQ sauce. This generous platter also features mouth-watering smoked pork belly, grilled corn, soft pretzel buns, cabbage salad and traditional Bavarian pickles.

Australia’s best-known Bavarian restaurants are renowned for their signature platters. The Munich Brewer’s platter ($72) is the ultimate feast and perfect option for diners hoping to try a variety of Bavarian favourites. The platter, designed for two people, features crackling pork belly, pork knuckle, a selection of traditional and gourmet sausages, crumbed chicken schnitzel, sauerkraut, red cabbage, bier jus, mash potatoes and apple compote. A sausage platter ($32.50), designed for one diner, is also on offer and features five types of sausages, alongside mashed potato, sauerkraut and bier jus.

Bavarian brand Culinary Head Chef Don Lama said these flavourful platters are an exciting addition to the menu this autumn.

“Our new platters are hearty, warming and protein-filled, making each the perfect addition to our menus during the colder seasons,” Chef Don said.

“They showcase various cuts of pork and brimming with sides and sauces, making them fantastic value for money.”

Each platter can be paired with an expansive choice of beers on tap, including imported Bavarian favourites Lowenbrau, Franziskaner, Stiegl and Hofbrau. Each restaurant also offers an iconic range of Australian and international craft brews, including Fat Yak, 4 Pines and Pirate Life, Goose Island, Budweiser and Stella Artois.
