  • There is no better place to enjoy a bottle of beer than at Brotzeit, a famous German restaurant chain known for its Paulaner beers and crispy pork knuckles, considered the best German food in Singapore.

    Brotzeit showcases Bavarian cuisine across its four different locations throughout the island, with the VivoCity outlet being the most popular.


    • The menu is predominantly derived from Bavarian cuisine: Popular Bavarian dishes such as homemade pâté with herbs, pretzels, cold cuts salad, honey Bavarian pork ribs, and oven-roasted pork knuckles are all available at Brotzeit. These dishes are the perfect companions to beer.
    • A place to try a piece of everything till late-night: Brotzeit’s platters of sausages, fish, and their finest specialties are perfect for sharing with a group of friends.
    • Germany’s seasonal specialties in Singapore: As an authentic German restaurant, Brotzeit offers select ingredients such as white asparagus, available only in May and June, and Maibock for the Oktoberfest celebration. Needless to say, Brotzeit has a festive atmosphere in October, making it the perfect time to indulge in the best Bavarian beers.
    • A wide variety of German beers: You can’t talk about German food and culture without highlighting the quality of its beers! Thanks to Brotzeit, locals can savor Paulaner’s draft beers, Hacker-Pschorr’s bottled beers, and beers mixed with fruit juices. They come in various styles, including dark and pale.

    MENU: Contrary to popular belief, German cuisine can be extensive, as demonstrated by the creative menu at Brotzeit. The restaurant offers dedicated menus for lunch and dinner, including beverages. In a surprising twist for unsuspecting foodies, Brotzeit also offers Fladen or pizzas. Vegans will find delight in the salads, vegan pizza, sides, and desserts, while meat lovers won’t need much convincing as platter options are available and perfect for sharing.

    AMBIANCE: All Brotzeit locations in Singapore have a beer garden atmosphere. This makes each location a good place to catch up with friends over beer and pork knuckle. The Vivo City outlet is particularly known for its alfresco dining, as the restaurant sits by the sea overlooking Sentosa. But if you prefer being closer to the central business districts, you won’t go wrong with the Somerset 313 and Raffles City locations.

    5. Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Café

    Gallery #01-01 Singapore 189559

  • As the name implies, Blackforest cake is the major crowd puller of this good German restaurant and café. Germans do love their cakes as much as the French love their breads and sweets. Thus, it isn’t surprising to have a whole café named after Black Forest, a mountain range in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany which also happens to be popular for its gourmet cuisine. But what else should you expect from Stuttgart?


    • Authentic Blackforest cake (S$12/slice): Taste-wise, it is something you’d write home about. The cake is moist, light, layered with cream and then covered with chocolate shavings. But what truly gives this dessert the punchy flavour is its alcoholic content derived from the double-distilled cherry brandy. Definitely a quick fix for your liqueur-based dessert!
    • Plenty of beers and liqueurs: The beers are generally sourced from Black Forest and Stuttgart, not necessarily in Bavaria, so there’s a good break for you to catch up on other German beer brands, especially when it’s that time of the year again for Oktoberfest (Hello, free-flow of beers!). Although the prices don’t come cheap at S$10++/0.5L, the chance to drink up these imported goods first-hand is going to be worth it.
    • Unusual wine list: If you’re an adventurous wine-taster, rose and ice wines from Baden-Wurttemberg might struck a melody to your ears! But if you’re not there for the wine alone make sure to ask for the waiter’s recommendation if such a wine is indeed a good pair to certain dishes, as they might not complement each other.

    MENU: Stuttgart Blackforest Café’s menu is small but enough to satiate your cravings for typical southern food. Pork knuckle is available in two sizes; single or full servings (good for 4 persons). There’s hotdog, pasta, and apple pie for kids while adults can engage in a four-course meal. The main menu isn’t exactly vegan-friendly but there’s vegetarian pizza and a variety of salads to choose from.


    • Pork Knuckle
    • Specialty Sausages
    • Pork Schnitzel
    • Baked Salmon
    • Mixed Salad
    • Maultaschen
    • Blackforest Cake
    • Chocolate Lava Cake



    • Event catering available
    • An S-Café Express extension is located at Beach Road, which specializes in cakes and pastries along with premium coffee variants and ala carte menu.
