Beer, sauerkraut, mustard, pretzels – these are the offerings most commonly associated with the German kitchen. What many fail to realise, however, is that each region of the country produces their very own version of the cuisine, with different delicacies, beers and breads connected to each Bundesland, or state. At Brotzeit – meaning literally ‘bread time’ in German – in Perth, you’ll be met with some of the best food and drink that Deutschland has to offer, ranging from honey Bavarian pork ribs to wiener schnitzel to apple strudel and everything in between. Book a table for a positively German experience at Brotzeit 140 on William Street, and be sure to say prost!.
Brotzeit 140 is more than a place to drink incredible beer, it’s also one of Perth’s most recognisable German restaurants. They’re well known for a reason, and that’s because their food is authentic, the atmosphere traditional and the service impeccable. Since 2006, Brotzeit 140 has made its way overseas from its headquarters in Singapore to Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Philippines and finally, here to Perth CBD. This award-winning William Street restaurant offers an experience not unlike what you would find in Germany itself, a must-visit for fans of great beer and German culture.
A common misconception is that all German food is heavy, creamy and meaty. While that may be true of many authentic dishes (and that’s not necessarily a bad thing), there are also plenty of traditional specialties that appeal to seafood lovers and vegetarians like cheese spätzle, pan-seared barramundi and even a healthy superfood salad. Of course, there are still plenty of meat-heavy dishes to choose from, with our favourites being the grilled pork sausages, breaded veal escalope and their massive, beer-marinated crispy oven pork knuckle. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with their apple strudel, a Southern German favourite served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. To get a table at Brotzeit 140 in Perth CBD, we recommend that you book in advance.
Excellent food and excellent staff! We enjoyed the experience! The benches were a little too cosy and we had 2 little ones. With adults it would have been a bit uncomfortable.
Great service, staff took the time to explain the foods and beers. Food was prompt to come out and delicious.. our table of 8 all got food at the same time no one person left waiting.
Great service and food. Our family of 6 including my German father thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would recommend the large share platter. The pork belly was amazing!
