Australia’s most-loved Bavarian restaurant reveals Toowoomba launch plan
The Bavarian makes its highly anticipated debut in Toowoomba next week, bringing family-friendly dining, an unrivalled range of Bavarian food and beers and sports-centric entertainment to Grand Central shopping centre.
The Bavarian Toowoomba opened its doors at 11am on Thursday, 14 June with 500 free hot dogs distributed from midday to 3pm.
The newest addition to The Bavarian portfolio seats 350 guests, including 50 outdoors, and boasts stunning restaurant views north toward Mt Kynoch and Toowoomba’s surrounding mountains. Forty-five full-time and casual positions have been created.
Guests can experience a true taste of Bavarian hospitality, from hearty signature dishes, to those with a contemporary Bavarian twist. There are
17 fabulous beers on tap including imported favourites Löwenbräu, Franziskaner, Stiegl and Hofbräu and a large range of house craft beers supplied by Urban Craft Brewing Co, all of which can be enjoyed from one of the restaurant’s renowned 1-litre glass steins.
The restaurant features a long, timber bar with the group’s signature stein chandelier hanging above. Two features walls, one sprawling with greenery and the other showcasing rustic beer barrels, add to the restaurant’s friendly charm. Natural light streams through ceiling-high glass windows and an expansive, heated outdoor terrace, provides views overlooking Toowoomba’s leafy northern suburbs and out towards the Blue Mountain Heights region. Several large-screen TVs promise an exciting schedule of live sports games.
The diverse menu offers something for everyone, including hearty Bavarian favourites such as the famous crispy pork knuckle, crackling pork belly, a range of classic German and gourmet sausages, generous shared platters and an assortment of schnitzels, including The Schnitzelmeister that weighs in at a whopping 1kg.
The Bavarians’ new range of “loaded schnitzels” are exceptional value for money at $29 each, with the Mexican Schnitty generously topped
with corn chips, chilli con carne, Jack cheese, guacamole and sour cream; The Australian Schnitty loaded with Cheddar cheese,
bacon and egg; and The American Schnitty bursting with bacon, maple and waffle. Hawaiian and Canadian loaded schnitties are also available.
The Bavarian brings some of the best value daily deals to Toowoomba, which are available Monday to Thursday, from 6pm. Guests can try to beat their personal best every Monday with the legendary All You Can Eat Meat Platter ($39 per person), which is refilled with sausages, pork belly, schnitzels and more. On Tuesdays guests can enjoy a hearty schnitzel dish and $300ml beer for just $20. Wednesdays celebrate hump day with a warming $20 sausage and beer combination.
A range of lighter bites, including salted pretzels, chicken wings, haus-made pickles and dips, spicy squid and healthy build-your-own salads and wraps offers something for all different tastes. A $15 lunch special combines an über schnitzel with a 300ml beer Monday to Thursday from 11am to 4pm.
Sundays are all about children, with those under 12 eating for free from the kids’ menu. Face painting, entertainment and other kids’ activities are also available and combine to create a fabulous family day out.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said The Bavarian Toowoomba was a natural next step for the group’s expansion throughout Queensland.
“Our Bavarian restaurants are a solid restaurant favourite with Queensland diners,” Mr Pash said. “We believe a menu filled with affordable deals and Bavarian classics, as well as local and international draught beers, will be happily welcomed by Toowoomba locals.”
The Bavarian Toowoomba joins a growing portfolio of Rockpool Dining Group Bavarian brands in Queensland, which includes Munich Brauhaus South Bank, The Bavarian Chermside, The Bavarian Eagle Street Pier, and most recently The Bavarian Beerhaüs at Bowen Hills.
