The 4 Best Places For German Food In Singapore

We Germans can be very strange at times. Not only when it comes to Birkenstock-Shoes and Sauerkraut (the worst eating-experience ever), but the majority of my travel buddies are checking their future destinations for places serving sausages and German beer, before anything else. Weizenbeer before Ang Kor Wat, and Hofbrau-Haus before Eiffeltower.


1. Paulaner Brauhaus – For Brunch

It’s kind of strange to go for “real German food” in Singapore, when you know its not “real German food anyway”. However the Paulaner Brauhaus has an really good deal for German brunch (including beer or not, your choice) situated around a halfways authentic “Oktoberfest” styled interior. Complete with Maibaum and Beer-Garden atmosphere..

The Buffet offers almost everything the “stereotype German meal has to offer”. From 5 different types of sausages, over to Kaiserschmarn and mashed potatoes, beer and so on. The best, good quality and the price.

2. Werners Oven – For Lunch

Situated in the east this is a rather small and “insider-tip” German restaurant. I came here first approx 2 years ago and introduced my local friends to the German Haute Cuisine with crispy pork knuckles and typical German soups. Oh, especially the green pea soup is very rare to get in Singapore and its enough for me to keep on coming back!

3. Brotzeit (Vivo City) – For Dinner

Brotzeit is the best example of how well done marketing, positioning and targeting can become a great success for a German restaurant in Asia. The place is the most expensive and more commercialized then the other German places, but its food is very good and location wise its the easiest to access with one outlet at Raffles City and one at Vivo City.

I usually have the platter with (very original) German cold sausages, nice bread and everything that reminds me of a “normal” dinner at home. (Just that its 10 times as expensive) But hey, you are Singapore.

  • Brotzeit (VivoCity)
  • Best German Food: Brozeit Brettl (typical Bavarian mixed cold platter)
  • Location: VivoCity, 1 HarbourFront Walk, #01-149/151
    Singapore 098585
  • How To Get There: Harbour Front MRT
  • Opening Hours:

    Sat and Su: 12pm – 1am
  • Reservations: +65 6272 8815 / info@brotzeit1516.com
  • Webpage: www.brotzeit1516.com

4. Erich’s Wuerstelstand – For Snacks

Erich’s Wuerstelstand would actually need a category on its own. Strangely situated in the middle of busy Chinatown, Erich is a “original character” serving the best of German / Austrian street food to the whole world, next to Peking Duck and Kimonos.

Hi, you’ve pretty much listed the few main German eateries in Singapore. What do you think of Magma at Bukit Pasoh (if you’ve tried it)?

Hey – that photo of Brotzeit is actually the one not at Vivo, but at Raffles City Shopping Centre. But they are both good. There’s a nice German place in Holland Village too.

I was just in Singapore for the F1 Rocks! concerts and chanced upon Erich (well, I assume it was Erich) opening up his Wuerstelstand early in the morning. But I didn’t have much time to hang around Chinatown so I was unable to sample some bratwurst.

Next time, for sure! By the way, thanks for this blog! Very informative and funny, too.

I wish there was non-Bavarian/Baden German restaurants as well. So many good specialties in the northern & eastern German parts. Brandenburg’s Zanderfilet anyone? Or Bismarkhering from Stralsund?
Just discovered this website, looks like there are more than the above in SG (forgive me I am new).

are you kidding about Werner’s Oven? I was there last week and had a beef goulash soup. It tasted like it came out from a can. I knew the taste as my dad used to buy the beef can when I was a kid and he cooked it all the time.

The knuckles were so tough I had to chew till jaws ached.
