 Extensive Wine Selections

Classy and Comfortable Dining 

With more than 50 dishes on the menu. with 32 choices for the mains, we had to limit ourselves to some of the more popular and well-known dishes at Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo.

Garden Salad 
RM 10

For starters, we had Garden Salad ~ Combination of tossed fresh greens served together with sliced onions, capsicum, tomatoes and cucumber and tossed with thousand island for dressing.

 Braised Lamb Shank 
 RM 38

 Juicy with melt-in-your mouth Lamb Shank  

The Braised Lamb Shank is almost the inarguably the main attraction at Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo, braised to perfection and served with creamy mashed potatoes and side salad. The accompanied brown sauce was superb and goes so well with tender and juicy lamb and mashed potatoes. Good to the last drop, highly recommended dish to try!

Pork Knuckle 
 RM 68

Pork Lovers would love this ~ Tastiest part of the Pork Knuckle  

Porky-licious Knuckle

Diners looking for something more porky, and are willing to splurge, can also try out the the Roasted Pork Knuckle crusted in a blend of aromatic herbs and spices and roasted to perfection.This results in juicy meat, with a golden brown outer skin and crust.

The meat was very tender, flavourful and aromatic, and make for a hearty meal. Served with combination of savoury pork sauce, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, it's comes with the price of RM 68.

Savoury Brown sauce with Mashed Potatoes 

A point to highlight was that I was never a fan of the German sour cabbage although it was touted to be a healthy serving with the pork knuckle. I once tasted it and it came on as being to sour to bear but in contrary, the sauerkraut at Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo was made just nice with the right taste, not too sour and comfortingly soft texture with mild acidity. 

So if you're not a fan of sauerkraut like me, I suggest you should give this healthy fermented cabbage a second chance at Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo. Try it, I bet you won't regret it....    

 Sausage Platter
RM 88

Sausage lovers is in for a treat with Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo ~ Sausage Platter of Farmer Bratwurst, Nuernberger, Emmenthaler, Hungarian, Thueringer, Chorizo and Grilled Bacon served together with garlic mayo, mustard, habanero mayo, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes.

This dish is a sinful indulgence, these premium offerings of meaty delicacies of German sausages are tasty and extremely flavourful. Perfect to be eaten with mashed potatoes or salad. Savour these with dipping sauces of garlic mayo, mustard and habanero mayo to complete this sausage-li-cious meal.

 Baked Pork Belly 
RM 35

Pork lovers will devour with the Baked Pork Belly in no time. Another sinful indulgence as the pork belly contained a good balance of fat and lean meat. Weight watchers may find the meal greasy but those who enjoy pork will definitely love it.
 
Standing Out: Pork Belly

The finest pork belly are richly seasoned, well marinated, roasted to perfection. Wonderfully juicy and tender, with the sweet and sourish apple sauce waking up our taste buds, bringing out the best in the pork belly. Served with warm mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and apple sauce to complete your meal.

German Beer Bucket at RM 120.00+ only
~ Choose from 5 varieties of German Imported Beer to quench your thirst ~

My favourite part came when we were served some German imported beer ~ Koniq Ludwig Weissbier to go with some in house snack. Ad Riene, one of my dining friends suggested we must try this special mutton dish to accompanied our beers.   

Spicy Mutton
RM 15

Thirsty Monkeys Cafe & Bristo ~ Special Spicy Mutton was simply delicious. A fully-flavoured dish cooked a whole lots of fresh ingredients of spices and herbs, it comes with a generous dose of fragrant curry aroma. 


The thick and spicy mutton was very appetising and fork-tender, good as a snack food to go with some beer. But for a non-drinker or teetotaller like me, I would prefer to have some rice to soak up the rich piquant dry curry. Yummy and a Must try dish if you loves mutton!

Apple Crumble
RM 10

To stay true to English fare, there was the traditional apple crumble to end our delicious meal. A British origin apple pie that crumble in your mouth.



Fried Banana Fritter Ala Mode

Lastly, we wrap up our taste palette with Fried Banana Fritter Ala Mode. Local favourite of deep fried banana fritter served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel syrup.
