Brozeit (1)

This gives no exception for Brotzeit – a German Bier Bar which is also one of my favorite German restaurant that serve decent consistent German food.

Brozeit (4)

Among the 4 beers, I love Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest-Märzen. Love the sweet sweet malty flavour and hinted with faint bitter aftertaste. It is also one of the beer that I have not tested before among those bottles.

Brozeit (5)

Brotzeit Fladen Kassler – Smoked Pork Loin Pizza -Tomato sauce, mozzarella, thin slices of smoked pork loin topped with olives and freshly grated horseradish. Every slices is filled with decent slice of loin and olive with its thin crust pizza. Do go along with their beer to pair it up.

Brozeit (6)

Bermerwürstl – Pigs in blankets @ RM 39 Three smoked pork cheese sausages wrapped with bacon and served with fries.

Brozeit (7)

The festival is celebrated in big scale, from food to beer and Oktoberfest PlatterRM 288 nett introduce you all their signature item. A platter that can easily feed 4-6 pax, served with Brotzeit Signature Knuckle, Pork Garlic Sausages, Gypsy Belly Bacon, Lumber Jack Steaks, Nürnberger Pork Sausages & Spicy Chicken Sausages served with Sauerkraut and potato salad. Their pork kunckle is da bomb, where every cut of it gives you the cracking sound from the skin.

Brozeit (8)

Still love their classic brown sauce to pair with most of my meat.

Brozeit (9)

Brozeit (10)

For dessert, WeiBer LavakuchenRM 25 is my favourite. Chocolate Lava Cake is also a twist of Chef’s version of molten lava cake with white chocolate. Cutting through the thin layer of crust gives you the crack and where white chocolate just flood out. Great replacement of white chocolate and pairs well with chef special sauce at the side.

Brozeit (11)

Apfelküchle @ RM 26 for 4 pcs. Slices of cinnamon-sugar dusted apple fritters served with homemade vanilla sauce.

Ippudo (5)

Start off with something light Mango Salad @ RM 29.50. Filled with diced mango served with assorted fresh greens and diced salmon tossed in light yuzu dressing. Love the dressing taste and generous mango in it.

Ippudo (6)

Fried Soft Shell Crab is another highlight for them. Crispy from inside and soft on the outside, with the steam bun.

Ippudo (7)

In love with this dish, Amaebi Tartar @ RM 34Diced fresh raw shrimp served with avocado and wasabi dressing topped with tobiko and seaweed. After serving, mixed the shrimp, avocado, tobiko with the wasabi dressing and wrapped then with the seaweed. Love the cripsy bite from seaweed and the well balance taste from their soy sauce and light airy avocado that pairs well with amaebi.

Ippudo (9)

Chicken Namban @ RM 16Marinated deep fried chicken with vinegar sauce served with homemade tartar sauce on the side. 

Ippudo (10)

Salmon Sushi Moriawase @ RM 446 pieces of salmon sushi platter, or I can call it 3 ways, that filled with salmon egg, sashimi and half cook salmon sushi..

Ippudo (11)

Here is a twist of flavour from Japan with our local taste. Seafood Foil Yaki @ RM 39.50Steamed mixed seafood mussels, shrimp, squids and scallops and assorted vegetables served with spicy ponzu sauce in foil on hot plate. The sauce is pack with flavour where giving you, spicy with cili padi and sourish after taste. Indeed it pairs very well with rice. Worth to give it a try.

Ippudo (12)

This is their new highlight – Mazesoba @ RM28.  Ippudo’s first “Japanese Styled Mixed Ramen” served with thick chewy noodles and 9 uniquely selected complimentary ingredients. The way to eat it is by Mixing it all together. Like the chewy texture of the noodle, just that I could not finish this personally where the sauce is slightly too thick for me, hence the gyoza soup at the side is to tone it down yet still think it is too much for me.

It is down to individual preference where some of them love it.

Watermelon Sherbet @ RM 19Homemade watermelon sherbet served with cheese cake and pineapple preserve. 

For their latest menu, there is a slight twist in it. All down to your own preference. For something light, Mango Salad is good to kick start follow by Seafood Foil Yaki and Mazesoba.

Till date I still remember clearly that my very first encouter of learning to drink whiskey comes is this Macallan back 10 years ago as it is one of my best friends favourite. That is when he was sipping thru his 15 year old Macallan on the rock and was invited to join him. Happily I pour over the whiskey and mix with coke. I got hell of lecture from him how I destroy a good whiskey. Since then I learn how to appreciate whiskey and had been top in my list for alcohol The Macallan Rare Cask Whiskey

Macallan (1)

It was only recently I got excited to received an invite to this Macallan Rare Oak whiskey dinner pairing event that took place at Ruyi & Lyn.

Macallan (2)

Rather intersting on how they build up the whole place with history, their limited edition bottle and also scent bar to trigger profile taste  into your mind.

I love the new bottle of Macallan Rare Cask where it do look solid and taste profile is amazing.

Macallan (6)

The Macallan Rare Cask is positioned as a modern, rare and luxurious whisky, crafted to showcase complexity and depth. Rare Cask was handpicked by The Macallan whisky maker where it is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks, 16 different types, ever identified by the Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno. Far less than 1% of those casks maturing at the distillery have been identified as fitting to bestow the Rare Cask name. With rarity at its core, this is a whisky crafted from casks so rare they will never again be used in any Macallan whisky. Combining Spanish and American sherry seasoned oak casks, a high proportion of them first fill, gives rise to an exquisite whisky with a splendidly rich hue, and an unmistakably woody whisky. Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin on the nose, give way to apple, lemon, and orange. Balanced by a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest. The finish is full, warming and woody.

Love the place how they set it up to be classy and easy to communicate with the other diners.

Macallan (8)

Right before the dinner start, we were also pamper with Macallan 12 years on the rock or with some of their latest creation with a few series of cocktail.

Before each meal, we are guided thru by Nadia Heng, with the presense of Edrington’s Brand Trainer, Keith Nair by telling us on each profile and how it should be tested which is very different from wine.

Macallan (17)

End with Chocolate Embrace

Macallan (18)

With other usual suspects for the pairing dinner. . .

The latest introduction of The Macallan Rare Cask indeed top in my list of Macallan and with its pricing strategy and product placement, surely it is targeted to the upper market.  To me, the profile beats 12,15 and 18 years old that makes it very unique and different.

The Macallan Rare Cask is currently available at selected outlets such as The Penthouse, Hyde53M, Monarchy 61, H20, Merchant Pub, Club De-Royale, Ojos Bar, Zouk, Avalon & Meja and Brussels Beer Café at a price of RM2,000 as well as hypermarkets at a retail price of RM1,600
