a late celebration for his birthday

This evening we dined at Ingolf, the famous German bar and restaurant in Penang, and I was the one who foot the bill, for dear's belated birthday treat. His birthday falls on Easter Sunday, what a significant day to remember. :) pray that one day dear will come to understand this meaningful day, of Christ Resurrection.

The reservation was made on Monday afternoon. The table available for us was at smoking area, due to a party was held at non smoking area (upstairs), so it was fully booked for the party.

I have been there a couple of times. But was his first visit to Ingolf and he was kinda excited thoughout the journey there. =)

We ordered the popular set called "The Butcherplatter". It was really a big platter, filled with bacons, hams, pork belly, and huge German sausages. It also comes with two side dishes, gravy and mustard.

Below is a picture of the Butcherplatter that we ordered

Sauerkraut (on the left side of the pic) - i just did a quick search on  the internet about this side dish and it is known as sour cabbage. For me it taste like sourish "bang kuang char"

Criss cut fries (on the far left corner of the pic)

The platter - we couldn't manage to finish the platter as it was too much for both of us @.@

At the end of the day, we did not finish the food. There were still some salad leaves and two jumbo sausages (half of each) on the plate. The Sauerkraut was also left on the plate, almost untouched (perhaps we do not know how to enjoy this German dish). also not forgetting to mention a few pieces of criss cut fries. We do not have a habit of wasting food but we already tried our best to finish the food. This set of dinner was too much for the two of us lar. But he boasted that he could finish them if his appetite for food was fully recovered (he was suffering from stomach upset and food poisoning for the past two weeks). Maybe we will come back for it another day. @.@ and we must bring a plastic bag to dapao in case we cant finish >.<

p/s: dear, hope you like my birthday present and find it useful :)
