Leberkäse... I just Can't Resist the Temptation!

Leberkäse is a specialty that can only be found at the Southern of Germany. I can never resist the temptation towards this delicious meat loaf. It's made of the blended beef together with the pork and being seasoned with spices, that is then baked as the bread loaf. The warm Leberkäse is a common snack to-go that can be easily purchased at most of the bakeries or from any food stall that is located inside the grocery market and by the street.

Attila has promised me a delicious Leberkäse that I'll never regret... We've visited the small butchery market that is located in front of the Pension Deutsch or Gasthof Deutsch that is located at the Neutraubling by Regensburg. We've ordered the Leberkäse Semmel that is a meat loaf bun. According to Attila, the meat loaf is handmade by the butchery master here whereby I find that the Leberkäse is very special with the plenty of holes and circular lines. The Leberkäse is very tender and juicy while the senf has added a slight spiciness to enhance the deliciousness of this sliced meat loaf. I'm completely indulged into the tastiness of the Leberkäse that I wish to have another slice of meat loaf only with senf.

I'm yet to find a delicious Leberkäse in Penang. This is the reason that I've always wanted to try a piece of Leberkäse, at least for once whenever I'm in Germany.

It Looks Alike a Big Warehouse... the Macallum

Gathering night with the girls, we've decided to try out the Macallum that is located at the Gat Lebuh Macallum. We've almost missed out the entrance that we've to make a big U-turn due to the one-way road because the Macallum looks indeed alike a big warehouse.

This is a self-service cafe and restaurant that you've to place your orders at the counter that is located at the center of this big house. I've tried out the Hot Long Black Coffee here. I dislike their own roasted coffee beans as the coffee tastes too sour. Phui Yee dislikes her cup of Cappuccino neither whereby the foamy milk is not able to cover up the strong sourness of the coffee.

We've decided to take the Smoked Duck Salad with Zesty Dressing as the starter. Every thinly sliced duck meat is very tender and it goes well with the fresh greens that have been topped with the honey lemon sauce. The sweetness of the honey has balanced up the sourness of the lemon whereby the taste is just nice especially for anyone that dislikes sourness yet is looking for a refreshing sauce. It's just slightly too dry that we've asked for more dressing indeed.

We've also decided to share 4 dishes that range from the Aglio e Olio with the Pork Bacon, the Macallum's Coffee Spaghetti, the Classic Grilled Chicken to the Smoked Duck Breast. The Aglio e Olio Spaghetti that has been sauteed with the garlic and the dried chili is delicious except the caper whereby I find that its taste is not suitable for the pasta. The coffee spaghetti is not only smells good but it's also tasty despite the slight bitterness of the caffeine. The creaminess has reduced slightly the strong taste of the coffee that I'm not really aware that this is actually a combination of pasta with the coffee yet I'm amazed completely by this dish. The sauce goes well with the chorizo or the pork sausage but the minced meat is slightly too hard. The chicken breast meat is slightly burnt that it has a crusty outer layer. The meat has been seasoned with sufficient saltiness that it matches either the passion fruit or the avocado spread. Everything is just perfect in this plate except the dry and hard toast. Lastly, we've decided for another duck dish that is topped with the red wine sauce. The whole duck breast meat is succulent and it has a nice smoky smell. It's disappointing that the red wine sauce is over sweetened that it doesn't go well with the meat.

Ending the dinner with a bottle of the Kopparberg Cider with Elderflower & Lime. I love it deeply! It's refreshing and this cider is not too sweet as any other brands that I've known of. Elaine has decided to try out their homemade cold brew. The bottle is opened and the nice aroma of the coffee is released; without the sourness that we dislike at the hot coffee except that it tastes too "empty" at the end of the tongue.
