Indulge In The Bavarian’s Winter German Platters

the bavarian's ultimate pork platter

Feeling a feast? The Bavarian in Newmarket has you sorted with their generous portions and wallet-friendly prices.

Tucked into Westfield Newmarket’s rooftop eatery junction, The Bavarian offers a taste of Germany without the travel. The joint follows our favourite hospitality trend of introducing winter specials in hopes of boosting dining traffic during the colder months – something we can certainly get behind on those chilly winter nights.

Paying homage to its culinary roots, expect to see protein-filled platters with plenty to go around. This option is perfect for hungry date nights or family meals.  

The Bavarian aims to maintain history whilst keeping the dining experience fresh and exciting for ever-so-discerning Aucklanders. Blending German cuisine with touches of American and Asian influences competes with the restaurant’s famously fusion neighbours, White & Wong’s. 

Designing the gastronomic equivalent to your trusty thermal, The Bavarian Tasting Platter delivers on versatility. This option features pork belly, renowned pork knuckle, German sausages, and delicious crumbed chicken schnitzel. The meats are then paired with traditional trimmings such as sauerkraut, red cabbage, creamy mashed potato and apple compote.

The Bavarian Original Tasting Platter

Lighter options include the Chicken Celebration Platter, The Southern Platter and the Signature Sausage Platter, which have a more focused feel. Sides for these options range from fries with mushroom sauce to cabbage slaw with chipotle mayo, BBQ and buffalo sauce.

Diners can also enjoy seasonal specials during the week. Tuesdays (from 8 June) offer two-for-one schnitzels (with the purchase of two drinks). From 16 June 2021, The Bavarian offers ‘Winter Wednesday’ specials – where patrons enjoy $20 platters, alongside a purchase of two drinks. What a way to warm up those weekly winter blues!

There’s nothing quite as German as a good beer, so enjoy The Bavarian’s fine selection of heavyweight handles. With a line up of Hofbrau, Spaten, Lowenbrau, Paulaner and Franziskaner, you’re in for a treat. The special might end in September, but you’ll be living in Oktober with this selection. Book your table today for the ultimate platter feast, available 7 days a week!
