Best German restaurants in Singapore
1. Baden Restaurant & Pub
Who needs posh when you’ve got good German nosh like pork knuckles and currywurst? The former is Baden’s signature, served tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. You can get it on its own with potato and sauerkraut or make it a feast with sausages, wings and more. Of course, like any self-respecting Germanic pub – located within the rowdy heart of Holland Village, no less – Baden offers a variety of classic German brews like Erdinger Weissbier. The Bavarian-style hangout has been around for years, dishing out plates of bratwurst sausages, pork schnitzel and stewed beef in dark beer for hungry diners.
