Tonight we were out hunting an Anaconda (whoops i meant at) for some rock climbing harnesses. They were pretty much out of stock so we gave up after ten minutes of looking around. Peter hadn't eaten dinner yet and neither had we, so Pete suggested the Bavarian Bier Cafe for a cheap and filling meal.

We had previously eaten at the Bavarian Bier Cafe in the city but didn't quite remember what we had, so we all agreed and headed off!

We started the night off by discussing the unique presentation of the waitresses bojangles (they unbutton their shirts pretty low). We were taken to our table and noticed a buttcrack on a neighbouring table so we got Pete to sneak a photo in.

(Cheers to Beer & Buttcracks)

Betty wasn't too hungry so she decided to have an entree sized flammenbrot which is like a very thin based pastry topped with mushrooms, herbs and a light cheese. Much to her surprise, it came out MAN SIZED. It was quite tasty in a sickening way, she was struggling to finish the Flammenbrot (note: this was an entree size).

I ordered a mixed sausage plate. This was a deep dish of sausages served on a bed of sauerkraut and mash, with deep fried crunchy onions on top with some kind of dark brown sauce. This was a very deceiving meal, it looks small but will fill you up like a bag of potatoes will (mmm french fries). The sausages were quite nice and there was an even proportion between meat and vegies. The sauerkraut was perfect, not mushy like a tin of baby food and not underfermented.

Pete had the meat tasting platter which again is a deceiving looking meal. It doesn't really look like much but will fill you up like a street with a burst water mains. Apparently they have Tuesday schnitzel deals, if you're able to finish a whole schnitzel, they'll throw in a free shot of schnapps. Back on topic now.
There was a sausage, pork belly and pork schnitzel served with sauteed red cabbage and deep fried crunchy onions.

This place beats Lowenbrau Keller hands down when it comes to the meat and vegetarian meals. We left the joint fully satisfied and wondering when we'd be coming back agan. Tuesday perhaps? ;P

I agree, I normally come to Bavarian for food even though they are same owner I think? Their flammenbrot are awesommmeee and their tasting platter is good too albeit a bit too small haha
