In its 22nd year, Bei Otto continues to be one of Bangkok's favourite German eating-houses with a genuine Black Forest feel to it.
The extensive menu features over 70 dishes with various seasonal specialities on offer. Hearty pea soup filled with chunky bits of ham or Hungarian goulash are warming starters, likewise deep-fried mozzarella cheese with sesame and linseed and served on garlic bread. But the main courses here are what really sets the tone with a choice of over 10 different types of sausage served with potatoes prepared in a variety of ways. Also try pig knuckle either grilled or boiled, or perhaps wiener schnitzel served hunter style covered in a creamy mushroom sauce and served with home-made Swabian pasta. Try to leave room for rote grutze mit vanille sosse (red berry grits), packed with red currants, raspberries, strawberries, cherries soaked in red wine and topped with vanilla sauce.
