Melbourne's Bratwurst Shop in Singapore
I finally made it down here today, and indeed, this is related to the famous shop at Melbourne's Queen Victoria Market; apparently this guy used to work there, and then he went in with the owner over there to setup shop here as the first overseas branch.
Anyway, I ventured off into a couple new items today, including the Black Pepper Pork sausage, which the owner's wife assured me was one of the most popular ones there next to the Spicy Beef & Pork sausage that I got last time. It tasted just like it sounded with a black pepper taste, but it just didn't have enough kick, so I think I'll still go for the Spicy Beef & Pork sausage next time (and maybe opt for some extra toppings that they offer like grilled onions). They have other sausage selections, like Mild Beef & Pork and Chicken & Mushroom, but those don't sound too appetizing to me, aside from maybe the Swiss Cheese Pork. Anyway, all the sausages are apparently custom-made here, and run at S$4.50 (US$2.65), with extras at S$0.20 (US$0.12) each.
They also feature a number of focaccia sandwiches here. Now, I'm not a huge fan of focaccia (I don't like that overused olive oil and rosemary taste), but I went for this after seeing a news article posted at the shop that talked about how their Rosemary Lamb sandwich tasted like Greek souvlaki that is sold along Lonsdale Street in Melbourne. It was pretty tasty, especially with the sauce, but I'm still gonna stick to the sausages next time.
