After an extensive two-month renovation period with a complete overhaul, Paulaner Bräuhaus; Singapore’s first and only authentic German microbrewery, is proud to re-open its three-storey bar and restaurant at Millenia Walk as Asia’s model flagship store with fresh new interiors and an updated food menu.
Keeping to the German “Geselligkeit” (sociability) concept, the updated menu of authentic Bavarian dishes is perfect with beer and for communal dining. Customers can look forward to revelling in the convivial atmosphere and the brand’s signature hospitality.
Paulaner Bräuhaus’ characteristic large polished bronze boiler; where the beer-making process begins, still takes centre-stage at the cosily-lit level one bar which boasts a seating capacity of 100 guests indoors and 150 guests outdoors, ideal for a casual gathering or after-work drinks.
On the second level, the 180-seater restaurant’s main feature; a towering sky-blue candy-striped Maibaum (Maypole) - a 16th century architectural antique, gives patrons the feeling of dining in a spacious breezy garden setting in the day, and under the stars at night.
The third level gallery floor overlooks the restaurant below and can be utilised jointly with the second level restaurant for larger scale events.
Paulaner Brauhaus’ kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Klaus Lukarsch who has over 25 years of experience in German cuisine.
On the menu; Paulaner Trio Fish, Leberkäs Pizza, Pork Schnitzel and more. Not missing out the Pork Knuckle. They present a whole bone-in pork knuckle which is first marinated in a Bavarian spice blend, brushed with Paulaner beer, and then over-roasted for 2.5 hours to render its characteristic crispy crackling and succulent flesh. Served in a roasting pan with a side of house-made sauerkraut and semmelknödel – a traditional bread dumpling, this makes a hearty meal-in-one.
Situated in the vibrant and eclectic enclave of Tiong Bahru, the modern and historic juxtaposition of the restaurant atop an art-deco straits settlement boutique hotel fits perfectly with the surroundings.
Born in the year of the rabbit (which explains his choice of restaurant name), Chef Matthew has always been fascinated with cooking since young. Unlike most award-winning chefs, Chef Matthew kept his training local within At-Sunrise Global Chef Academy without any overseas apprenticeship. Similar to Heston Blumenthal, he picks up ideas from his travel experiences and interaction with people.
A combination of classic French techniques along with a touch of Asian and Singaporean flavours, Chef Matthew creates seasonal menus inspired by the 7 characteristics of ‘ENSOPHI’: Exotic, Nostalgia, Soil, Ocean, Pristine, Heritage, Impression. Each element represents a poetic and artistic expression of his dish.
Sourced from little-known boutique vineyards from all over the world, wine labels to pair with each course range from familiar regions like Barossa Valley, Australia and Bordeaux, France to newer regions like Nahe, Germany and Colchagua Valley, Chile. Watch as resident mixologist Aidil shakes up house crafted cocktails and international favourites to kick-start your meal. Enjoy Happy Hour specials and live music from Thursday to Saturday evenings.
With Chef Matthew’s forte in creating and designing, he made a full renovation to the space. The intimate 30-seater indoor dining room is formed around a semi-circle with floor to ceiling glass windows for a 180° view of the city. Complete with an open kitchen concept, diode branches of stars imprinted in the ceiling, and Chef Matthew’s sketches and art sculptures collected from his travels, the stage is set for a gastronomical and artistic experience. The outdoor rooftop terrace seats 26 but offers ample standing space for large-scale events in a lush alfresco garden setting. Chef Matthew has plans to set up a vertical garden around the steel façade. Sip some wine, savour the food and soak in the ambience. The Rabbit Stash offers a multi-sensory dining adventure with a feast for all senses.
