Hans im Glück creates a forest in a city (not in Forest City but right in the heart of Singapore’s Orchard Road). The German Burgergrill is named after the fairy tale “Hans in Luck” (or Hans im Glück in German) by the Grimm Brothers. Walk into Hans im Glück Singapore and you walk into a restaurant resembling a German forest with birch logs installed in the beautifully decorated space. Its thick menu, which looks like a fairy tale book, offers burgers for vegetarians, vegans and die-hard meat eaters.
Stärker Signature, Tanjong Pagar Centre is the latest outlet of the Starker Group. They seem to be sprouting outlets all over Singapore. As of today they have three Starker Bistro outlets, two Starker Signature and one each of Starker Music and Starker Q. It seems that the “Bistro” series have more food choices with “German signature roasts as well as popular international dishes” while the Q series at the other end “is a multi-concept bar that serves a variety of cuisines with a local touch at wallet-friendly prices“. The “Signature” outlet at Starker Tanjong Pagar is therefore something in the upper middle segment. What is common through the range is the fresh and fruity beer that Starker is known for.
Kaiserhaus Restaurant in Capitol Piazza has a unique concept of offering cuisines of the former Habsburg Empire which at the end of the 19th century extended over Austria, Hungary, Northern Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia and parts of Poland, Serbia, Romania and the Ukraine. We had been to Kaiserhaus for its affordable set lunch when it was newly opened (see The new Kaiserhaus restaurant at Capitol Piazza, Singapore). We return to try items on its a la carte menu and it turned out to be quite a heavy but enjoyable lunch.
We tried the set lunch at German restaurant, Brotzeit Westgate in Jurong East Singapore recently. The restaurant is located on the ground floor and is easily accessible within Westgate and also from the neighbouring Jem Mall by taking a connecting pathway. I believe many of us have seen Brotzeit at some point as they have several outlets in Singapore, mostly in prominent locations. They serve German food and have a good selection of German beers. During lunch, they have some set lunch options starting from $15++.
Ginza Lion Beer Hall Suntec CIty is located in the space where the HSBC Suntec CIty branch used to be located. It is at the former Carrefour end of Suntec, far away from the Convention Centre. The Ginza Lion Beer Hall looked like a German beer hall with a Japanese twist. It is a beautiful looking beer hall.
The Kaiserhaus restaurant is located in the heart of the new Capitol Piazza complex. It is situated in the Capitol Theatre block itself and occupies the second and third levels just above the theatre lobby. The Kaiserhaus restaurant serves cuisine from Central European countries such as Austria, Germany and Hungary, which is a nice change from the usual Mediterranean food eateries.
