Germany is one of our favourite holiday destinations. We love it for its non-pretentious nature. We’ve spent some pleasant holiday weeks exploring the Bavarian state. It will always be part of our fond memories. To us, being absolute meat-lovers, German cuisine is splendid – offering a wide array of meat dishes in a very enjoyable way. One of the best places to visit whenever we miss German food, is definitely Der Backmeister in Bangsar.
How to Get to Der Backmeister?
🚗 Der Backmeister is located at Bunglow 37, Jalan Abdullah, Bangsar (GoogleMaps). Conveniently, there is an open carpark before reaching Bungalow 37. Since parking space within the premise is limited and reserved for valet parking, it is advisable to park your vehicle at the open carpark . We read that a small parking fee is applicable. However, on the day we were there, no one was manning the open carpark, so we didn’t pay to park there.
Der Backmeister: Ambiance
The courtyard of Bunglow 37 exudes the atmosphere of a charming European villa. The fresh greenery in the courtyard, with the matching red floor tiles manifests the charm of the villa. We like the small balconies with pots of blooming flowers, it’s an imaginary perfection of vacationing abroad. At door, there was a signboard stating “Willkommen” (German: Welcome), we instantly fell into the whirlpool of memories in Germany.

Der Backmeister: The Interior
At the entrance, there is a small waiting area with two black vintage armchairs where customers wait to be seated. Walking inward and we were mesmerised by the setting: from the tiles to the pastries display counter, all well-complemented. Together with the small furnishings in the dining room, such as candle holders, hanging paintings and chandeliers, it has recreated the atmosphere of a hotel breakfast room.
The waiting staff warmly explained every part of the restaurant. On the ground floor, there is a corner mapped out for smokers. However, it isn’t just any smoking corner. The area is tastefully furnished and decorated, like a communal area.
We walked up the stairs and found ourselves in a vintage European lounge. Here, there is a sofa seating area with a touch of old-age antique. It is indeed a cozy spot for friends-get-together.
The amazement doesn’t stop just there. Linking to the lounge, is their open-air terrace. Half of the terrace is air-conditioned, while the other half isn’t, there are enough plants to shade off excessive heat of the hottest days. This is important, in Malaysia, at least.
A reason to miss Japan. Best ramen in town – KANBE @ 163 Retail Park.
Der Backmeister: The Food
The menu options pretty much reflected what we know as German essence. In addition to the various types of sausages (wurst) and breads that we are all familiar with, there are also sandwiches, pastas and other breakfast options. We think it is reasonable to adjust the menu in order to cater to the local tastes.
Leberkas mit Spiegelei
Everything on this plate was bright and wonderful. Our personal favourite was the rye bread, soft but chewy, with a light wheat aroma. The outer part of the bread was crispy. It was rare – quite difficult to find this quality in any other bakery. The chicken meatloaf was solid in texture and just of the right seasoning, even when to pair with bread. We personally thought that the sunny-side-up was not as well done, rather overcooked. It could have been much more satisfying if the yolk remained runnier. Although the waiting staff did offer a replacement (a full service score here!), we turned it down since we had taken a bite. On the other hand, the use of slaw as a side on a German plate was not as authentic as sauerkraut, but we gave a credit to the taste of the slaw.
Overall, this plate was good.
Weisswurst (German: Weißwurst) is a traditional sausage in Bavaria. Traditionally, white sausages should be prepared early in the morning and eaten as breakfast. Der Backmeister retains the traditional way of serving weisswurst: After heating it in boiling water, they placed it in a large bowl of boiling water when serving to keep it warm. In Germany, this sausage is usually served with Pretzel and sweet mustard sauce. Sea salt crystals can be seen on the surface of the pretzel. The pretzel was solid and chewy. As we tore it apart, we could see the firm texture of the pretzel. Some might think the pretzels here are too chewy, but people who have savoured this delicacy will likely remember its taste and texture.
If dining in alone couldn’t satisfy your German soul, do takeaway some breads and pastries freshly baked in-house, there is always a reason to be happy.
