Mama’s German Restaurant is back! Located in the Lawalon Complex on the western side of Jalan Raya Legian, Mama’s German Restaurant casts a welcoming countenance as Kuta springs back into life after an extended coronavirus hiatus. First opened in 1985, Mama’s German Restaurant is a Kuta landmark. Closed for two years in March 2020 until April 2022 during the pandemic lockdown, the popular bar and restaurant are now open every day from 9:00 am until 11:00 pm, with plans to resume 24-hour operations once late-night business picks up. During the shutdown all the staff were elsewhere employed in the organisation.  A legendary Mama’s German Restaurant signature dish enjoyed for more than three decades is their succulent pork knuckle pictured], indistinguishable from the Schweinshaxen found in the best Bierhallen of Munich. Made from 1.2 kilograms of imported ham hock, these meaty joints are generous and sufficient to be shared by two or more diners. Slow-cooked to mouth-watering perfection over two days, each knuckle is finished with a final hour of crackling in the oven. The kitchen team will then debone the knuckle at your table-side. The meat can then be lathered with spicy German mustard, a healthy helping of Mama’s homemade sauerkraut, and mugs of icy-cold domestic or imported beer.
