It’s a pretty sensible truth: if you want a good Italian restaurant in KL, go to one run by an Italian. Want authentic Mexican food? Find a place that’s run by a Mexican. Same for Nepalese, Japanese, or Lebanese. So when I went to a place called Bavarian Bierhaus at the Curve last year and found that the food was merely satisfactory, I did a little checking and found that despite the name, it wasn’t run by a Bavarian.
Happily, all that has changed now. Hailing from Bavaria’s capital of Munich, Germany, Dr Kurt Svrcula and his Malaysian wife Suzianna took over the inviting eatery about four months ago, and wonder of wonders, being helmed by an actual Bavarian now ensures the restaurant lives up to its name. We enjoyed German beer and a parade of absolutely tantalising Bavarian fare from this celebrated region of southern Germany that blends the culinary traditions of that country with those of neighbouring countries, none more so than Austria. Much like the Catalonian region of Spain, Bavaria has a strong and proud regional identity that, while German, is ultimately quite distinct and gives the cuisine of the area its own character, and now, Bavarian Bierhaus serves up delicious examples of this fascinating region. Of course, though the region is replete with culture and history, foodies won’t be too fussed with all that. They’ll just be savouring the mouthwatering food and beer that’s placed before them.
