Australia’s first Breaking Bad themed restaurant, Heisenberg Haus, opens in Brisbane

As of mid-December, last month, Ipswich near Brisbane has welcomed a new German restaurant with big, big difference. Named Heisenberg Haus, this hub of schnitzels and biers has been inspired by none other than Vince Gilligan’s masterful television series Breaking Bad.

Opened by The Fechner Family, this addition to Ipswich’s dining scene is part of the Circa 160 precinct, serving up a wide selection of beers from German breweries, and hearty, traditional food including Pork Knuckle with potato dumplings, beer gravy, and special sauerkraut, Chicken Schnitzel with pan-fried potatoes, and Slow Cooked Pork Belly with red cabbage and creamy potato mash. These are served up alongside a range of wines, schnapps, spirits, and cocktails named with Breaking Bad references in mind, like the Badger and Skinny Pete and the Blue Crystal Surprise (vodka, blue curacao, pineapple and pop rocks) – TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT.

Balancing authentic German design with that inspired by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, this eclectic mix of pop culture and tradition has brought Ipswich it’s very first German restaurant.

Heisenberg Haus is one of two Australian venues inspired by a popular television show to open last month, with the other being a bar inspired by Seinfeld’s George Costanza in Melbourne’s Fitzroy.

Heisenberg Haus is located at 164 Brisbane Street, Ipswich. For more information head to their Facebook Page
