For those who love German beers and German sausages, there is a cheaper alternative to Paulaner Brauhaus; that is Lenbach Beer House. Located at 和平区八经街72号, tel 22852766, the ambience is cosy although the ventilation / exhaust system could be improved so as not to confuse the dining area with the kitchen.
A wide selection of imported German beers will make the most discerning spoilt for choice. Food is not too bad, "sauerkraut" is passable albeit sweet. Roasted pork knuckle is a feast for 2. Pumpkin soup is good while the potato soup is so-so especially with staled diced ham.
The desert "volcano" is worth trying. Baked chocolate muffin with hot chocolate filling served with vanilla ice cream is a great way to end the meal.
Service is attentive and with pricing not likely to burn a hole in your pocket, this is a great place to chill out with a nice mug of lager.
