Kaiserhaus–Enjoy Game meat at Singapore’s only Central European restaurant – CLOSED

Did you know that Kaiserhaus is Singapore’s only restaurant serving classic dishes from Central Europe? If you’ve been to Germany, Austria or Hungary and want to reminisce, you just might want to check out Kaiserhaus. And if you do so by 24 November, you’ll also get the opportunity to sample their Game menu dishes.

The game meat used at Kaiserhaus is sourced from sustainable free-ranging farms in Europe. These farms boast vast expanses of land, allowing the animals to forage on a natural diet, thus improving the quality and flavours of the meat. People who don’t like strong flavours tend to shy away from game meat, thinking game to be reeking of animal smell. Personally, the game dishes I tried at Kaiserhaus are not so exotic tasting that you need to steel yourself in advance. In fact, it is a good thing to have more flavourful meats, why would you want bland tasting food? (Can never understand people who say lamb tastes “lamby”, well don’t eat meat then?!)

Doesn’t strike me as a game dish, but nevertheless a very good version of duck liver aka foie gras. I seldom come across duck liver served with pasta, but it was a very good idea to pair the 2 together as they complimented each other very well, with the tart and sweet cranberry glace helping to cut through the greasiness.

Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Cafe

What a mouthful! Chanced upon this restaurant about half a year back and was quite surprised to see a restaurant all decked out in the German/Black Forest theme that I hadn’t heard of prior to seeing it! Finally managed to check it out only yesterday.

I love German food, not just the sausages and the pork knuckles, but also other things like sauerkraut and spätzle. I could eat bowls and bowls of sauerkraut, if only it were more commonly found in Singapore!

The place is decked out with lots of wood, and they even have a number of evergreen pine trees to make you feel as if you really are in some part of the Black Forest. Actually I think this Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Cafe is more gimmick than good food although I must admit I too was attracted to enter by this interesting looking place.

Granted, the beers are quite reasonably priced, at $15 for half litre, and $18 for 1 litre, but the food menu is painfully limited. If you’ve been to Werner’s Oven in the East or Brotzeit, the menu at Stuttgart is like 1/10th of what would normally be available.
