As the Lan Kwai Fong destination for all things German, you can certainly expect a well-rounded celebration of Oktoberfest at Heimat. Its two new seasonal menus act as a seal of authenticity for the restaurant’s German cuisine: alongside the Oktoberfest menu is the wild game menu, launched in celebration of the revered game season in Germany.
Sample the finest game items from the à la carte wild game menu, including the Wildschwein Sauerbraten ($328), a luxury interpretation of Germany’s national dish where wild boar is roasted and paired with sweet apples and red cabbage. Together with venison loin and fallow deer, this will certainly be a feast unlike any other you’ve had in Hong Kong!
Heimat’s Oktoberfest feast-for-four menu ($988) is no less authentic. Start with the classic Heimat Brotzeit of freshly made bread, sausages, and cheeses; move on to the sausage platter of Schlachtplatte complete with blood and liver; and wrap up with the indulgent Kaiserschmarren (literally “Emperor’s Mess”), where pillowy caramelised pancakes are paired with homemade apple compote. Diners are offered a jug of Possmann Frankfurter apple cider and eight German beers for the ultimate Oktoberfest experience.
