Did anyone know that Bier Markt served brunch? Well, they do. I had no idea and was pleasantly surprised at what was on the menu.
Since discovering brunch at the Bier Markt, I have graced their tables twice now. I’m all about brunch!
Round One, ordered the Benedict schnitzel – two poached eggs, panko-crusted chicken cutlet, English Ale muffin, lingonberry hollandaise paired with an orange biersicle – Erdinger Weissebier, Galliano, blood orange soda or adult orange as I like to call it.
What I loved most about the food was the perfectly made schnitzel. It was so nicely breaded and fried, not greasy. The lingonberry hollandaise was creamy and I really enjoyed the sweetness of the berries. When I finished eating, I was already craving it again.
It was this craving that made me decide to go back for another brunch. But then, I went over the menu again and the brioche french toast which comes with two sunny side up eggs, apple sage sausage, warm maple syrup, preserved fruit compote. For a drink, I went with the swedish mojito – Somersby Apple Cider, strawberry coulis, fresh mint and Swedish berries.
The french toast tasted great. A hint of cinnamon and sweetness in the egg batter. The sage apple sausage paired up nicely with the lingonberry fruit compote. I won’t lie, I secretly hoped it would taste like the apple sausages I had discovered in Mesa, Arizona.
Sadly, not close at all, but still delicious. The swedish mojito was dangerous, tasted like juice and the alcoholic kick was well hidden. A great summer patio drink.
If I had to pick between the two meals, I would go with the schnitzel. Something about all the flavours and textures makes me keep wanting more.
Until the next brunch! =)
