There used to be a time when MYR 120 could fetch you a great feast in a nice restaurant .
Well , this still looks impressive but when you dig in you start to question yourself .
Why ? Why do you now have to add on Gst onto my bill ?
And why is there so much lambbbbbehhh ???? So little chicken ? And so much bread ?

When I went to pick up my shoe from the cobbler , he suddenly noticed my ring .
" Ini sembahyang kat gua ? "
he asked me rather as a matter of fact .
Loosely translated , he asked me if this stone was worshipped inside a cave before I purchased it . Yes really . He really asked me that . I'm not kidding but I really do not understand what he meant by that statement either .
Have read somewhere about some Malay traders who sell semi precious gemtones procured out of river beds . Some local shamans and witchdoctors known as bomohs , will even recite incantations over the stones first .
However , this is the first time in my life , I have heard of anyone chanting over a stone inside a cave .
By that , he must be insinuating that I probably have some supernatural inhabitant , residing inside it !
How scary !!!

Probably has been years since we stepped through their doors and much has changed .
The seating layout has changed , workforce tapered , but surprise , surprise , some portions are as large yet the prices remain more or less the same !
Outside , locals are seated enjoying a pint or more while inside ,sees spots of Japanese men having a drink with their buddy or alone . Strangely , they're not drinking Asahi but Carlsberg or Hoegaarden .
Unlike them , we're here for the food . Here we go .
1. Mixed roast .
Gerostetes Fleisch von er Haxe , Rippchen und Schweinebauch .
Pork knuckle , rib and belly .
Oh man , although the cuts they served me was a little bit on the dry side ( not to worry , there were lots of sticky prime juicy parts too ) , they did not pick this up from the jit tiao lor market and dress it up with some sauce . No , no .
This is as German as you can get in Malaysia and damn , is it good !
Found layers of divine smoked garlic , sea salt , nutty surprises , the delicious different flavours embedded in the crackling skin is best eaten first ( don't leave it to the end or you will regret it like I did as it got tougher since we really took our time to savour every bite )
Loved the mash ( think they mixed in some horseradish ) and really appreciated the spiced red cabbages ( ought to do macrobiotic wonders to my sluggish system )
Yes the portion is huge , but German food is really good for your body so eat up , keep active and watch the fat melt away like magic !
