      The once sleepy HDB estate of Sunset Way is fast emerging as a dining hotspot after places like Holland Village and Dempsey Hill. Its charm stems from the diverse array of eateries that range from a pizza place to a Chinese restaurant to Peaberry & Pretzel, a small dining outlet purportedly selling German food (but they sell pasta as well?!) and also the choice for our dinner on a Saturday evening.

      Nestled in a corner of serene Sunset Way, Peaberry & Pretzel is but a small eatery with an even smaller interior to boot. The smallish air conditioned interior can sit probably about 10 pax and gives the feeling of barrenness due to the cement floor and the over usage of mirrors. What I did like about it was the glass dessert cabinet and the open kitchen concept where you can view the chef preparing dessert. In case you are wondering about the limited capacity of the place, the restaurant also offers dining in its alfresco area, which has a couple more tables and is slightly elevated on wooden planks overlooking some greenery. Do note that there is no shade in the alfresco dining area, thus limiting meals there to only dinner.

      Complimentary Bread- The bread was nothing to shout about, just your normal baguette but served warm with a serving of mass produced butter. Its complimentary though.

      Warm Spinach Salad - How fantastic or interesting can a plate of spinach tossed in vinaigrette, bacon and served with hard boiled egg get? Not very interesting if you ask me. Sadly, the salad proved my point. The spinach were reasonably fresh although they could do with a little sprucing up while the half boiled egg was about 80% cooked, as evident by the slightly watery egg yolk and limp egg white. Not that I am complaining about this dish though. The bacon bits were plentiful and added a salty yet barbecued dimension to the faintly starchy yet sweet vinaigrette. Three flavours all rolled into one made for a very decent starter.

      German Pork Knuckle - It is to my understanding that Peaberry only serves up 10 German pork knuckles a day so its best to call in to place your order for it in advance. Luckily for my gf and I, we got there early and managed to get ourselves one to try. Just for the record, all 10 pieces were sold out by 8pm. Now then, does the pork knuckle live up to its hype? Unfortunately, not quite. True, the meat was fibrous and tender while the skin was crackling crispy. However, the knuckle wasn't homogeneously seasoned, resulting in some parts of the skin being extremely salty while others bland. The meat lacked a reddish hue as well, an indication of overcooking. I didn't find the accompanying Sauerkaut and potato salad too fantastic either, coming in as rather average.

      Valrhona Warm Chocolate Pudding - How could I resist such a sinful dessert, especially when it was so aesthetically pleasing? The thought of warm and rich Valrhona chocolate in a spongy encasement oozing down my throat was enough to make me dribble all over my shirt. Unfortunately, I didn't quite take to this dessert as the chocolate was way too bitter for my liking. I know chocolate is supposed to be bitter but I prefer mine pleasantly sweet. A matter of preference I guess. That aside, the sponge was nice and moist with chocolate breaking forth with every bite.

      Soufflé - Another pleasing on the eye dessert, the Soufflé was spongy and frothy, emphasizing heavily on the egg taste with bits of caramel wedged in between. Nice and sweet and a perfect end to a rather heavy meal.

      I wouldn't exactly quantify spending $84 for 2 pax as cheap because it certainly isn't for such an area. The food is pretty decent on the whole but definitely better with the desserts. Service is good but they need to do something about their air conditioning and ventilation system. I walked out of the place reeking of fumes and perspiring. I hear that they serve up a mean Cuppa so I'll probably drop by just for that and nothing else.

        Came to know of this place due to a recommendation by my former boss who frequents there. Therefore decided to drop by to check it out the other day. It was situated under a block of flats( i think), next to the multi-storey carpark, making finding a parking lot less of a hassle and also shorter distance to get to the restaurant.

        Basically, the restaurant was a small one with most of the seats in the open area outside the shop with only abt four tables within the air-conditioned area.

        The main specialty of this place was the German pork knuckles, which normally it would be recommended to pre-order as they sell it on a limited basis daily. The pork knuckle was crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. The taste was just nice for me and not too salty.

        I also tried the sausage platter, which consisted of a prok, beef and lamb ( which I changed to pork). The sausages were nice and succulent and were not too fatty, unlike some which i ate in the past.

        As for dessert, I ate a tiramisu and it was not very sweet either. Overall I can say that the food is quite good and the portions are just right for either a couple or a group of friends. As for the pricing, it is quite reasonable was well. So do go down if you happen to be nearby Sunset Way

          Excellent pork knuckles and sausage platter is a delight even for non-sausage lovers. Cup cakes appeal to the young and young at heart. Only thing that I can fault them is the cramped air coned space and dingy toilet.

          Perhaps when they've made more money, they can expand the air coned space and put in a decent toilet.
