Oktober Fest 2008 Celebration at Deutsches Gasthause 3, Damansara Perdana

October ….. do this bring any special occasion which could cross your mind as a foodie? Besides Deepavali, there’s another celebration which is celebrated internationally. It is the German OKTOBER FEST.

Thousands of visitors sitting enjoying the beers ……

The Oktoberfest is a sixteen-day festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September (and running to early October). It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world’s largest fair, with some six million people attending every year, and is an enjoyable event with an important part of Bavarian culture. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the Munich event.

Oktoberfestbiers are the beers that have been served at the event in Munich since 1818, and are supplied by 6 breweries known as the Big Six: Spaten, Löwenbräu, Augustiner, Hofbräu, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr. [1]Traditionally Oktoberfestbiers were the lagers of around 5.5 to 6% alchohol per volume called Märzen – brewed in March and allowed to ferment slowly during the summer months.

Visitors also eat huge amounts of food, most of it traditional hearty fare such as Hendl (chicken), Schweinsbraten (roast pork), Haxn (pork knuckle), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Würstel (sausages) along with Brezel (Pretzel)), Knödeln (potato or bread dumplings), Käsespätzle (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Blaukraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a fatty, spiced cheese-butter concoction) and Weisswurst (a white sausage).

Our team in Food POI also never miss to celebrate this occasion for the past 2 years. Last year we were at Euro Deli to celebrate it. This year we went to try out a restaurant which we spotted for quite sometime. But the crowd is not there. So we dare not go and try worry that the restaurant may close down anytime. But that prove us wrong when coming to the Oktober Fest seasons. It is full house almost daily. When we walk in and checkout the menu, this is their 3rd branch ! The name of the restaurant is Deutsches Gasthause 3.

The environment looks like a typical bar with plenty of liquor bottles and wooden beer drums. Service wise is good and they do know how to recommend to their guest the house specialty.

My booze came from this petrol pump.

When we flipped the menu we were having a hard time to decide what to eat ….. but before choosing anything to eat, I go for my booze ….. I ordered a rare old school German beer. It is a 500ml Franziskaner Weissbier while Daniel ordered a orange juice due to he got a hang over for sleeping too much.

See the color of the beer ……. The aroma displays a slight smoky character. The palate is malty sweet up front with with a smooth creamy texture. A Bavarian specialty and a real treat for wheat beer connoisseurs.
[This bottle cost me RM31.50]

Besides this, they have Belgian Beers [Hoegarden White, Stella Artois, Hoegarden Grand Cru, Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brune, Leffe Radieuse], Australian Beers [Foster’s, Crown Lager, Victoria Bitter], American Beers [Budweiser] and the German Beers [Konig Ludwig, Warsteiner, Beck’s and Lowenbrau]. They got a menu book alone for beers!

For starter, we ordered a Caesar Salad [RM18.00]

Nothing to boast on the salad though as you can see the thin bacons. The best caesar salad I had so far still goes to Italianies. Out of 5 ratings, I give this a rate 2/5.

Then both of us ordered our self a bowl of soup each. Daniel goes for a bowl of Home Cooked Wild Mushroom Soup [RM14.00]

The mushroom soup are really home cooked after the first sip we taste. It is very creamy and smooth with plenty of finely chopped mushrooms. The rate 4/5 goes for this bowl of soup.

For myself, I am getting a bowl of Home Cooked Goulash Soup [RM16.00]. Goulash is a Hungarian thick stew which is cooked with diced capsicum, carrots, tomatoes, pepper and beefs. It taste a bit spicy and sourish plus with the fragrant of the beef.

This stew is a MUST to try when you visit this restaurant. Rating 5/5!!

Both soups serving are huge! and value for money.

Then I saw my main course is served. I ordered a DEUTSCHER WURSTE STANDARD [RM55.00]. It a mixed authentic German Sausage Platter served with Potato Salad, Mustard and home cook sauce.

The sausages are nothing special compared to the one I had in Euro Deli. I guess their sausages are in freezer too long and need to be cut on its skin in order to cook it thoroughly. The juiciness of the sausages are soaked with oil rather than the original meat flavors. Euro Deli’s sausages are made fresh daily. I would give them a rating of 3/5 for this sausage platter.

Daniel ordered the PORK KNUCKLE [RM55.00]. It is a “whole” crispy roasted pork knuckle served with Sauerkraut [German Fermented Cabbage], boiled potatoes, pork sauce and mustard. Trust me ….. make sure you share this dish ! if not you definitely cannot finish it. The waiter did warn us on this and we thought we can finish it. But after clearing the soups, we couldn’t finish the pork knuckle.

Daniel with his pork knuckle. The Pork Knuckle are rated 5/5 by Daniel and me.

Both of us walk of satisfied with a bill of RM217.25. The bill got separate the price for food RM158.00 and drinks RM39.50 + a 10% service charge RM19.75
