West LA: Bruhaus Now Open
Bruhaus in West LA is now open. I was invited to come check out the pub which serves a wide range of craft beers along with a huge menu of ten different sausages including two vegan options; Vegan Mexican Chipotle and Vegan Smoked Apple Sage.
Bruhaus is sleek and modern yet warm with wood accents throughout the restaurant. I liked the open kitchen and watching the food being cooked.
I tasted three sausages that night and loved the Duck and Foie Gras (not pictured). The Alligator & Pork Andouille was spicy! As well as the Creole Turkey. I was fairly liberal with the toppings. I love sauerkraut but I would be more sparing with the spicy peppers next time. With all that spice going on, I asked for a beer that would put out the fire and was recommended to try either the German Schneider Aventinus or Belgian Malheur. I happened to be drinking the Aventinus at the time and it wasn’t calming the spice so I asked for the Malheur. It worked!
I thought Bruhaus had a great array of interesting dips including their bright fuschia-colored beetchup, sweet sambal aioli and jalepeno ranch.
I was too full to try the Bru Burger but liked you can add Neuske bacon or a fried egg for an additional $2 (I’d probably get both though!).
Sides include haus pickles, sweet potato tots and a giant Bavarian pretzel.
Bruhaus does have a full bar and will be launching a specialty cocktail list soon. They’re also planning on a happy hour.
I enjoyed my night at Bruhaus. There’s finally a great gourmet sausage place on the Westside. I’ll be coming back to try the Bockwurst and of course get more of that Duck and Foie Gras.
