German food is hard to come by in Penang Island but lucky for us Penangites, we have the Ingolf’s Kneipe German Restaurant which serves delicious German food. This outlet is housed in the middle of a row of shophouses located opposite Copthorne Orchid Hotel in Tanjung Bungah.

Beer Cans, posters, sign boards and pictures of food/beer lined the wall and stairway. Beer drinkers can pick their choices of beer from the many beers on tap found in the bar area located on the ground floor.
This restaurant has a wide selection of food to offer to its customers. Hubby took the beef and pork patties covered with a dark rich sauce and served with creamy smashed potato, salad and mild mustard. The meat was tender and tasty (particularly the beef).
My Rindsrouladen (beef rolls) were wrapped up by bacon strips. There were three side dishes – fresh garden salad, creamy smashed potato and sauerkraut (sour cabbage). I love the taste of the sourish cabbage. It went well with the beef rolls which were braised with a flavorful dark brown sauce.
My son had the mixed grill served with potato wedges, garden salad and black pepper sauce. The mixed grill had a combination of pork, beef, lamb, sausage and bacon strip. The food portion was huge and tasty except for the pork – which was a bit tough and dry.

We wanted to try the desserts but were too full after such a heavy main dish. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

I’ve been there once with some friends. It’s has a nice ambience with alot of foreigners dining there. Their food really looks authentic as we don’t usually find it elsewhere in other shops.

I agree with you about the pork. The last time I went there, my parents ordered pork and it was tough & dry. I’ve forgotten what I ordered but I wished they whould have been more generous with the potato wedges though because they only gave me 2 pieces.

Oh sorry, it wasn’t the potato wedges. It was the chicken nuggets.
