Enjoy Authentic German Burgers At Picturesque Hans Im Glück

James Chan

Hans Im Glück

Hans Im Glück is a German Burger bar and a must visit for all you Instagram lovers because the place is so darn pretty! Following a consistent dreamy and foresty theme, they even went so far as to import their wood from Germany!

Located at the International Building, Hans Im Glück houses two areas. One for dining and the other for chugging them tasty cocktails (the bar). Both areas come with indoor and alfresco options.

The Food

The menu can be a little challenging for some (me included). Most of the items on the menu are German words and I had no inkling how to pronounce them. Stick to the good old “point and order”, you can’t go wrong there. That aside, even the menu is so pretty! It was designed like a fairy tale storybook that depicts the story of Hans and his eventful journey home.

At Hans Im Glück, on top of the usual Beef and Chicken Burgers, they have Vegan and Vegetarian Burgers too! These burgers come served from a choice of Sourdough Bun, Multigrain Bun or Naked (ironically this means it comes with no buns). Their buns are also produced by a local German Bakery by the way!

As for your sides, you can choose from Geleit (Mixed Salad), Krautknolle (German White Cabbage Salad), Fritten (Fries) or Susskartoffel-fritten (Sweet Potato Fries). I recommend the Krautknolle as it refreshes your palate with its sourness and makes every bite of your burger seem like a new one.

Beef and Mushroom Burger

You get the feeling that they’re all about enjoying food and also looking after your body. The Birkenwald is no exception with their Australian imported beef and contains 20% less fat than normal market standards. This is my favorite burger HANDS DOWN. You can never go wrong with beef and mushroom. Hans Im Glück ups their game by spreading that secret, slightly spicy, special sauce on the patty. I’m pretty sure there’s wasabi or mustard in there.

Chicken Breast And Bacon

I’ve always said that chicken breast is a hard meat to work with (literally). Just slightly overcooking it can make it dry and flaky. Fret not, the chicken here was tender and perfectly cooked. However, the bacon was just a tad dry. I don’t know about you but I can overlook the sinfulness of having bacon in my meal just because I ate this burger with the multigrain bun (and this is why I’m fat).

Spicy Patty With Aged Cheddar And Avocado Cream

This is a vegetarian burger and I’m honestly surprised at how much I liked it. The spicy patty is only slightly spicy so don’t get your hopes up spice lovers. But, it works really well with the secret sauce (they have it in ALL of their burgers). I especially loved the avocado cream. It was cool, refreshingly sour and very tasty.

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

You cannot find these German burgers ANYWHERE in Singapore. It’s a true German experience without having to leave the country! Hans Im Glück’s attention to detail is remarkable and burgers aside, they make some pretty great tasting cocktails too! Just remember to save yourself the embarrassment, point and order!

Till 5pm – Top up $5 for a hot/cold beverage and a side

From 5pm – Top up $15 for an alcoholic cocktail (yums) and a side

 

They have limited seating so I would suggest to make a reservation via CHOPE with the link below:

Oktoberfest at Paulaner Singapore

Paulaner Singapore

Last Friday night we went out for some nice cold German beer and delicious Bavarian food at Paulaner. As part of the Oktoberfest 2017, which lasted from 22 Sep – 30 Sep, Paulaner partnered Citibank and offered a promotion (10% off the bill for card holders) and a special menu for this period.

The Bier

Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier

Oktoberfest Bier

There was only one beer on sale during this period – Oktoberfest Bier, which was a classic Märzen style (lager from Bavaria Region). People who like drinking rich malty beer would really enjoy this one. The price was S$17.50 for 0.5L. There was also a 20% discount for orders before 8.30 PM. The bar could hold the beers for you too, which was really nice!

The Food

Paulaner Würstl-Trio

Würstl-Trio

Paulaner presented a special Oktoberfest menu. Our first order was Würstl-Trio, which consisted of roasted Nuremberger sausages, white and red bratwurst served with sauerkraut, mashed potato and dark beer sauce. The sausages were yummy as usual and they paired really well with the Oktoberfest beer.

Paulaner Oktoberfest Schnitzel

Oktoberfest Schnitzel

The second dish was the Oktoberfest Schnitzel, which was pork escalope filled with horseradish and mustard panfried with butter. It could have been better if the escalope had not been folded (it looked more like a pork chop). It should also be crispier. The flavor was alright and it was still better than your usual schnitzel you find in Singapore though.

Paulaner Pork Knuckle

Pork Knuckle

And here comes the pork knuckle. We could not stop ourselves from ordering it at a brauhaus like this. The skin was crispy and tasty (as it had a Paulaner beer glaze). The meat was, however, a bit dry. We have had better pork knuckle elsewhere.

The Ambience

Paulaner Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is not just about the beer and the food. The music (and the Chicken Dance) also forms part of the fun. The German band which played that night was funny and we had a really great time watching them live. There was also an English band taking over the stage when the German band went on a break. Overall, it was a great authentic Oktoberfest vibe. We wish the party space on the ground floor could have been larger. Don’t get us wrong; there was an outdoor area and also more space on the second and the third floor. However, when people came inside and gathered around the makeshift stage, there was not much space to move around.

Verdict

Paulaner Ambience

Overall, great beer (as usual), authentic Bavarian food, fun vibe. If you look for a place to celebrate your Oktoberfest with friends and family in Singapore, Paulaner is one of the choices you should really consider visiting (unfortunately, the event was already over for this year).

If you have an Oktoberfest event to suggest us to visit or review, please let us know in the comments section below. Until then, Prost!!!
