As most of us know that Charcoal BBQ Grill is the most authentic and flavourful method to grill ny type of fresh food (if perfectly done) as it will exudes the right balance of smokey taste and aroma to the meat or vegetables. Here at Rocku Yakiniku there is no chimney like structure used to extract the smoke but it is using a vacuum system that sucks out the smoke at the side of the BBQ stove; making it a very pleasant and comfortable way to eat BBQ in the comfort of an air condition environment.

Another specialty in dining at Rocku Yakiniku; is that in the evening from 7pm to 11pm daily; you will be entertained by a Live Singing Performance serenading popular songs while you enjoy barbecuing your meals.

Customers can start out their buffet from the snack bar which has small snack /appetizer type food like squid, jelly fish, Sushi, Udon, Fried Nugget, Fried Rice while waiting for the meat and seafood to be barbecue. 

Others pre cooked food selection include the Kaarage, Tori Hanbaga, Tori Gyoza & Togarasi Potatoes, Chawan mushi and etc.

For the fresh BBQ item, you can ordered either ala-carte or as a platter, we started with the Seafood Platter which consists of Prawns, Squid, Mussels & Scallops. You can also ordered it individually if you have preference for the different type of seafood of your choice.

Next, we ordered the Pork Platter which has Pork Belly, Pork Collar & Pork Bacon. Each individual order comes with 3 pieces of the meat. As it is cut into a very thin slice; it does not take much effort to barbecue these meat to right balance of smoky aroma blended with the natural taste of the meat.

We love the pork bacon as it has that special salty charcoal aroma taste after being put onto the BBQ pit.

For Beef lovers you can order the thinly sliced beef Platter which consists of 
Beef Chuck Tender, Rib-eye and Strip-lion slices.

or try out the special Lamb Shoulder with a special marinade.

You can complement the meat dishes with vegetables like ladies fingers, corn, capsicum, brinjal, enoki, mushroom and more from the salad selection.

For those that loves alcoholic drinks to go along your BBQ, you can also order your favorite  drinks like beers, sake or you can order the ice cream which has a silky smooth texture.

After the breakfast dishes we move on to the German small bites which is a great appetizer for wine or beer; the first of the small bites dish that we had; was a special Mini Brotzeit Platters (RM35.00) which can be shared by 2 person;

After the small bites, we moved on to try out the lunch special menu; which are served daily from 11am to 3pm daily except on Sundays and Public Holidays offering 9 varieties set. Each of the set comes with a free ice lemon tea. Our first set was the Pork Chili Con Carne with German Egg Noodles (RM 16.00) - the sauce is made from corn, kidney beans and minced pork meat.

The Crispy chicken strips are served on a bed of salad greens with potato salad, drizzled with house dressing and garnished with sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumber and semi dried tomatoes. A balanced meal all on its own. For a light eater, this can be a complete meal altogether.

And finally it was time for the Brotzeit Signature Pork Knuckle (RM99). A nice special craving of the skin that resembles a cauliflower florets that was still crackling when it was served to us. 

The Pork Knuckles are oven roasted the German way ensuring a crispy crackling skin and served with potato salad, pickles, sauerkraut with a special beer infused knuckle gravy. 

Our food review ends, with a sweet ending with the Knuspriger Schokoladenspeck - which is a sweet and savoury duo of crispy chocolate bacon on a white chocolate mousse with lemon pepper marinated strawberries and apricot sauce.

Overall, we have enjoyed this very special dining experience to taste some really good pork dishes the German way at Brotzeit Bier Bar & Restaurant @Bangsar Shopping Centre.
