Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center
The German restaurant, Paulaner Brauhaus, at the Kempinski Hotel is my go-to place for good German food. The restaurant has an expansive beer garden and a large indoor Bavarian decorated dining area. It also has its own microbrewery.
Complimentary bread basket
The bread basket I was served consists of three types of bread – Pretzels, rye bread, and oatmeal bread, accompanied by three different spreads. The liverwurst and the homemade butter was absolutely divine with the bread.
Traditional German tomato soup with rice and meat dumplings
Roasted half chicken
The roasted chicken was a disappointment. The chicken was dry and somewhat bland.
The potato salad was decent, however, in my opinion, there was too much lemon juice in the dressing that it overpowered all other flavors.
Schnitzel von der Poulardenbrust
Vienna style Chicken schnitzel
Schnitzel perfection! The chicken was tender and juicy, the crust was flavorful and crunchy. The lemon juice gives the chicken a nice tangy flavor. The Schnitzel comes with tomato salad, cranberries and pan-fried potatoes with bacon and onions.
Rich and moist! Lovely!
The prices of the dishes are little high compared to other German restaurants in Beijing. It would cost around RMB500 ( $75 ) for two people. However, if you love German food, this is the place to be!
