Review: Bratworks! @ One Raffles Place

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

My interest for currywurst piqued when I first saw posts on Instagram about Mr Berlin, a place that serves up original German bratwurst and crurrywurst in Singapore! Of course, I squealed in excitement when I found out that Nicholas (@stormscape) was bringing me to Bratworks! Photo 18-2-15 1 17 17 pm

The Place

Bratworks! is a 3-week-old German Imbiss located at One Raffles Place, one the many food choices in this area for one’s lunch break! If you didn’t know, Imbiss is just another word for appetizer in German! They specialize in selling authentic German sausages, currywurst and German beer. Do not expect comfortable or ample seating in here. An open kitchen concept with only 2 tables on the outside, which resembles the usual al fresco bar concept where people can stand around to have their food and beers.
The Food
 Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset We ordered the Currywurst (Sausages, fries, soft drink) ($14).  Unlike Mr Berlin, there were no option to choose between the type of protein for the sausages. We were served with grilled pork sausage flooded with tomato sauce and a handful of curry powder. The case of the sausage wrapped the meat within firmly. One bite would cause the case to break, and the flavorful emulsion from the pork to burst into your mouth. We thought that the curry powder was not sprinkled evenly, and was a little too stingy, as this dish ran out of the curry flavor within a couple of bites. A huge disappointment, considering that it is a Currywurst. The fries served on the side were soggy, and were served with only an option of ketchup or mayonnaise.

For $18, you can choose to have your Currywurst and fries with a bottle of German Beer too!

Closing Remarks

There are 2 other options on the menu as well, with a selection of chicken sausage or pork bratwurst. Served with a bread roll and a soft drink, they cost $10 for a set. I thought that the food here is rather pricey as a snack since the serving is a little small for a filling meal. In my opinion, the bratwurst were really up to standards, although some work can be done to keep the fries crisp. With the abundance of dining options in the vicinity, I wonder how long can Bratworks last in this area with its quantity and pricing. Maybe a beer from here would sound good on a stressful day.

P.S. The German chef behind the counter is such an eye candy.
