Have you ever had white asparagus? It’s a May specialty in Europe, especially in Germany. It’s been called the ‘vegetable of kings,’ ‘edible ivory,’ or simply ‘white gold.’
For a limited period starting from today, fans of the prized white asparagus can look forward to a gastronomic joyride of white asparagus dishes whipped up by Chef Hans Lueftenegger, Group Executive Chef at Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant. Lauded for its smooth and buttery with a deep, rich flavour, these prized vegetables are specially imported from Germany and will be simply cooked to bring out its intrinsic taste.
To kick-start your meal, try the heart-warming Spargelsuppe ($15.50), cream of white asparagus soup complemented tastefully with fine leg ham. The classic white asparagus served with Hollandaise sauce (Der Klassiker Spargel S$25/250 grams) is also highly recommended. If you are a meat-lover, go for the Spargel mit Lungenbraten ($46.50) and you will be served with some white asparagus with grilled beef tenderloin with parsley potatoes, baked tomatoes and bernaise sauce. No meal is complete without a delightful dessert. Specially created by Chef Hans, indulge in Spargel mit Erdbeeren ($14.50), a toothsome mix of white asparagus and strawberries infused with balsamic sauce served with vanilla ice cream. It’s a sweet treat that you can’t get anywhere else and it totally hits the spot when you are craving a little sugar.
Brotzeit is also offering the Paulaner Original Münchner Märzen, a strong but smooth lager made from dark roasted malt. It’s one of Paulaner’s best brews to complement your hearty German meals.
