On Saturday after the Fitness and health Expo, the American and I decided to spend the afternoon in the city. As I had already dragged him around the expo for hours, I thought it was only fair that he could choose the venue for lunch. As I am still unable to walk very quickly, or too far in distance, we attempted to find somewhere trendy near the train station. We were walking down Railway Lane and stumbled across the dimly lit venue of Brotzeit. We were greeted at the door by a waiter who showed us the menu and then to our table, which was situated along a large wall lined with wallpaper of german cartoon characters.
We looked over the menu for a few moments but it was very heavily “meat” options. Other than the salads and soups, there wasn’t a lot that caught my eye- although if you are a meat eater, you would die and go to heaven in this place! The American and I decided to share the Spinach Pizza ($18), Scott had the beer tasting addle ($13) and I had a glass of French Merlot ($9). The wines were quite pricey but it was fabulous to see a different range of imported beers and wines which made the prices a little more justifiable.
When our pizza came out, it wasn’t your traditional pizza at all. It looked really flat (and a little bit oily) but was generous in its toppings. The toppings consisted of sautéed baby spinach leaves, feta cheese, vine-ripened tomatoes, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, onion, garlic and tomato sauce on a homemade dark rye fladenbrot. The base was so delicious and was actually really light for a pizza.
Our experience at Brotzeit was superb with delicious food, great wine and beer varieties, friendly service and at reasonable prices. Would I return? Most likely not, only because the menu wasn’t to my liking and other than a salad, there wouldn’t be much else I would eat. But this is the perfect spot for an after work drink or relax after a long day of shopping!
