The Bavarian Restaurants takes us OTT with their new menu

Go overboard and love every minute with the OTT menu

The Bavarian Restaurants have launched a turbo charged menu called OTT (over the top for the uninitiated), available until July 31st, packed with supersized German fare to satisfy the hungriest of appetites.

The OTT menu range includes wings, schnitzels, sausages and burgers – never be hungry again and be sure to wear your elasticated pants.

Our eyes bulged as we stared at the menu. So many options, but we love a German sausage so we started with the OTT Sausages. There are three available  – Long ($35), Hot ($35) and I Want It All ($65). We chose the Long option. The Bratwurst took us back to days misspent (or well spent?) in German Beer Halls  – full of flavour and cooked to juicy perfection. Served with smooth-as-silk mash potato, sauerkraut and gravy this is a big a$$ meal and we’d easily enjoy this again.

The longest sausage

We were told the Hot option is not for that faint of heart – apparently the hottest Currywurst, also served with fries. The last option, the I Want It All (and let’s face it – who doesn’t) is the biggest Wurstplatter in town and is designed for two.

We also enjoyed an OTT Schnitzel. There are three options on the menu  – and all designed to share (the OTT is $55, but single serves are $35). These are huge. Like HUGE HUGE. Almost, mate I dare you HUGE. But without a shadow of a doubt  – bloomin’ delicious. The choices are Matterhorn, Godfather and the Big Boy Oi Oi Oi.

We chose the Materhorn. An impressive presentation by any imagination. Three layers of chicken schnitzel with Alpen cheese, Spatzle and bacon served with fries.  Even when sharing, you need to be hungry to eat it all. Our advice throw your whole self into it. To accompany there are four dipping sauces for the fries: ketchup, aioli, BBQ and also vegemite (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it – a brilliant way to bring Australia and Germany together).

The Matterhorn – with epic additions to take OTT above and beyond

There are also create your own burgers  ($34) and you choose your own proteins including double angus beef patty, or double chicken schnitzel. You can also boost to a triple serving. There’s a number of additions including a mac and cheese ball, bacon, crispy pork belly or triple cheese. They didn’t lie when they said OTT.

Also on the menu are the wings, wings and more wings. Four sizes of half kilo ($20), 1kg ($30), 2kg ($50) and for the eager a 5kg ($100) mountain of wings available. So many sauces to choose from with one sauce per ½ kilo. Obviously that means if you get the 5kg you could have 10 sauces to dip those juicy wings into!!

Whatever options you land on, wash it all down with a classic German draught beers like Lowenbrau, Paulaner or Spaten available in 500ml or 1 litre glasses all make for an epic meal with mates.

Of course the classic menu is available, but if you’re going to go  – why not go OTT (perhaps a solid motto for life)?
