My first week in Malaysia back in September 2000 was somewhat what of a whirlwind. Coupled with the excitement of exploring the nightlife in my new home and my London colleagues travelling on a business trip to KL at the same time it was a absolutely manic. One of the first places we visited was House Frankfurt in Bangsar Baru and I still remember my lack of enthusiasm as a brit having to visit a German restaurant and bar in Malaysia.
I remember that I enjoyed the food and atmosphere and subsequently returned several times over the following years and was never disappointed.
Bangsar has gone through many changes over the years and despite the nightlife scene effectively ending in 2003/4 there are still some good places to eat and drink and House Frankfurt is one of them still going strong.
I often walk past in the afternoon and see Peter (the owner) give me a wave and feel somewhat guilty that we don’t visit anywhere near as often as we should.
We recently found ourselves in Bangsar early one Saturday evening and decided to call in. A warm welcome was received from Peter and decided to sit at the bar
The drinks selection is not as extensive as some other speciality bars and restaurants although there was no complaints from myself.
For dinner I ordered a bruschetta as an appetiser and a chicken schnitzel as the main course.
The bruschetta was a little plain being serviced on sliced bread but schnitzel and the accompanying potatoes were tasty.
My wife ordered the beef goulash for the appetiser and seafood spaghetti as the main course and found the food tasty. I helped finish the appetiser and concur that it was delicious.
Overall I enjoyed my visit and will return again, hopefully on a more frequent basis
