House Frankfurt, Bangsar.

Lissie and I were talking about watching a Germany match in House Frankfurt along with the many Germans that frequent the restaurant but as the intended match would only start at 2:30am, we decided we would have dinner there instead.

House Frankfurt, according to their website is the oldest German restaurant in KL. Considering that 80% of the tables had at least one caucasian occupying it, I would guess that this place does serve rather traditional fare that reminds them of home. And of course, the drinks list is another encouraging factor!

We were thinking of sharing a salad initially but their vegetarian main dish of grilled mixed Mediterranean vegtables with balsamic vinegar (RM30.50) sounded much more interesting. And it was. The medley of vegetables consisted of grilled eggplant, courgettes, tomatoes, baby corn, mushrooms, peppers and was topped with baby olives. Delicious but a tad oily. But since the menu said pumpkin seed oil was used, i would brush it off as “healthy oily”, haha.

I decided to have something off the menu, and was listed as one of the daily specials. I can’t remember the name for sure but it started with “Jaeger”, but was essentially escalopes with mushroom sauce and spaetzle, german noodles. I really enjoyed this as the sauce was rich and creamy and perfect with the noodle dumpling bits which reminded me of gnocchi. This costs RM39.50.

Lissie ordered Smoked pork (RM34.50), which was served with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and gravy. The pork tasted like thick cuts of bacon, i.e. all the salty porkiness that lingers in your mouth. The creamy mashed potatoes was the perfect accompaniment.

Lissie’s friend ordered the pork schnitzel “Wiener Style”, i.e. Austrian style (RM34.50). It was served with potatoes and a side salad. Even though schnitzels are traditionally served with a lemon slice or jam, i think this one really needed some gravy to go with it. It was crisp but dry. And the gravy-less mashed potatoes didn’t help at all. But it was great if you had some weissbeer to wash it down with, hehe.

After the rather excellent meal, we were ready for dessert. The hot apple strudel with ice cream (RM16.50) was really quite something. The apple slices were rich with the taste of cinnamon and it was what I’d call comfort food.

    There was a piece of glass in my salad. Enough said. The manager didn’t even apologize for the inconvenience. The only thing redeeming about the restaurant was the fried potatoes, but that doesn’t even begin to makeup for the piece of silica in my caesar salad.

    Hmm..Smoke Pork seems like my kind of food. Slurp.

  9. This place has been around forever! Good to see old places like this still doing well.

  10. […] We were so stuffed by the end of the meal yet couldn’t resist having something sweet and we went for the apple strudel (RM12) which was not bad, but not memorable in comparison to that from House Frankfurt’s. […]

    Great news indeed. I have been seeking for this update. I also like the design was this a free theme or a pay one?

    Along with every thing which appears to be developing within this particular area, a significant percentage of points of view tend to be quite stimulating. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your whole theory, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everybody that your remarks are not completely justified and in fact you are your self not totally confident of your point. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.
