Schnurrbart’s, Hong Kong, China

Schnurrbart's SchnapsIn true Leibspeise spirit, Schnurrbart’s was established 26 years ago by 3 Germans who came to Hong Kong and clearly saw the lack of good German beers and food. Leibspeise wonders what this says about English beer and food?! What better idea could they have had than opening a German beer hall / pub / restaurant /Schnapps bar called Schnurrbart’s. By the way, ‘Schnurrbart’ is something typical German and means ‘moustache’.

WirtshausIt doesn’t take long until you realise that this is a real German authentic place. You certainly won’t see anything that refers to modern Germany (Schnurrbart’s looks like a typical Landgasthof), but a first view at the tab reveals some nice German Pilsners (Jever, Koepi, Warsteiner, Veltins). Furthermore, Schnurrbart’s menu boasts with a plethora of other beers and traditional German dishes. Their pork knuckle, mixed sausage plate, Wiener Schnitzel and the Currywurst are bestsellers, but there’s much more on the menu, eg. Suelze, simple salami and cheese bread (belegte Broetchen), Apfelstrudel, fried egg with potatoes, Frikadelle.

Schnurrbart’s guarantees its German authenticity by getting their chefs trained by Germans, sometimes they even invite guest chefs from Germany to create a special dish. And most importantly, Schnurrbart’s buys some of their produce from a local butcher called “Bayern-Gourmet” in close-by Aberdeen (check out their website; it’s mouthwatering). Although Schnurrbart’s has many Germans as regulars, other expats and a growing number of local Hong Kongers enjoy their culinary trip to Germany at Schnurrbart’s.

Leibspeise loved tasting a refreshing Jever after all so many weeks of Chinese Tsingtao and also was impressed by the selection of German imported Schnapps (see picture above). Similar to Koelsch beer, at Schnurrbart’s you can buy Schnaps in meters or even in 2 meters. Make use of their Happy Hour from 5-8pm. Na denn, Prost!

Schnurrbart’s has two branches: one in Lang Kwai Fong on Hong Kong island, the other one Tsimshatsui on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.
