Stammtisch KL: German Restaurant and Bar

Gather your family and friends and head over to Stammtisch, the newest German restaurant and bar located in Bukit Damansara, KL.

In German culture, stammtisch, translates to a sacred table in every bar or restaurant that is reserved for regulars, friends and family of the restaurant. At Stammtisch KL, every table is a "Stammtisch table", you can enjoy a hearty German meal, washed down with a glass of German beer and good conversations with your friends and family. Stammtisch is owned by a German-Malaysian family and the kitchen team has been trained by a chef from Munich, ensuring that the food served here is as authentic as possible.

When we think of German food, we think "meat feast". Some of the specialties at Stammtisch include the world-famous German pork knuckle, roasted pork ribs, sauerbraten (3-day marinated beef slices), sausages (imported from Germany) and more. Stammtisch also aims to change KL-ites' perception of German food, with some of the not-so-meaty-but-still-excellent dishes such as the spätzle and mussels cooked in beer. Other than German food, you will also find a few non-German dishes such as langos from Hungary and bramboracky, a staple in Czech. You will also find Ju Yu Zha (crispy Chinese pork lard) topped on pasta or pizza for the ultimate sinful indulgence. 

To start, we had the Dunkel Beer Mussels (RM35), fresh, plump black mussels stewed with tomatoes, dark German lager and spices. The sauce was absolutely delish, and we mopped it all up with the sourdough bread. 

The Hackbraten (RM50), homemade German meatloaf, came highly recommended. Made with a mixture of ground beef and pork along with tomatoes, onions and spices, the meatloaf is baked and served with mashed potatoes and blaukraut (braised red cabbage). The meatloaf was really moist and flavorful and the sweet and tangy blaukraut complements it perfectly.

We also loved the Crispy pork belly (RM55), featuring two generous strips of beautifully roasted pork belly with faultless, crispy crackling. This comes with a side of spätzle and blaukraut. 

Here at Stammtisch, they make their own spätzle. You can choose from either original or spinach, prepared in three different cooking styles. We recommend Bacon and Onion (RM35), one of the traditional ways of enjoying it - with bacons, mushrooms, caramelised onions, and lots of Emmental cheese. So good - one of our favourite dishes here!

What's a German meal without a glass of German beer. Stammtisch offers Erdinger on tap as well as several other German beers in bottle, such as Franziskaner and Paulaner.

For dessert, choose either the Kaiserschmarrn (The Emperor's souffle) or Apfelstrudel, the classic German dessert. We had the latter, which comes with house-made puff pastry, poached apples, vanilla sauce and vanilla ice cream.

For lunch, Stammtisch offers a set lunch menu (weekdays only, 12pm to 3pm) for RM18.90, which includes a main (choose from roasted pork belly, glazed balsamic pork ribs, baked spaetzle etc.) and ice lemon tea.  Click here for the full a la carte menu.
