The rather short trip to Munich ended up to be a fun one and also full of food. One of my best friends lives there, and, aside from hosting us and being awesome, she also took us to places that had mouth-watering food! Regarding prices, I have to say that they were lower than in Luxembourg at similar restaurants, but also portions were smaller. I tried to remember the prices to what I ordered – otherwise you can also check the websites or FB pages of those places.
La Taqueria. After a long drive and tour through the centre of Munich, our friend took us to this Mexican place that had this incredibly delicious food and atmosphere! The system here is similar to Vapiano – you order the food and you get a little remote that vibrates when your order is ready. I had 3 tacos, each with a different filling, and an agua fresca. What I liked was that the portions were not huge and they were not accompanied by huge portions of fries (like it happened in Luxembourg). I have to reiterate that the food was truly delicious and those decorations? I love Mexican art and especially the day of the dead masks! It was around 7E for the food and around 4E for a 0.5l drink.
Oktoberfest. As I mentioned in a previous post, we didn’t spend a long time at the actual Oktoberfest. Just enough to have some beer, try the (very expensive) food and some pretzel.
Kennedy’s Bar & Restaurant. After Oktoberfest, we walked a lot through the city, so in the evening, our friend suggested an Irish place. As usual, when I go to new places, I picked a platter with a lot of different things – fries, chicken wings, skewers – I don’t remember what else it had, but we were two people on it and we couldn’t finish it. This mixed platter – the “Best of Chicken” – was around 14E, and 0.5l of snakebite was 5E.
Kaimug. I love Thai food. This place was rather small and the staff so so friendly! I had Mango Lassi (so predictable), some starters and then I had rice with shrimps and vegetables. De.li.cious.
Dean and David. After rather heavy food from the places above, as well as pretzels and donuts, I decided I should have something lighter. It was brilliant we went to Dean & David. I loved their menus and juices. I think I had a chicken salad? And it was the first time I had a chicken salad where the chicken was warm as I was expecting it to be! I think there is a Dean & David in Luxembourg too, so it’s on my list of future brunch places.
Restaurant Hunsinge at the Neue Pinakothek. This is where I had a coffee and a slice of cheesecake. I came to the Neue Pinakothek to see sunflowers by Van Gogh and still lives by Cézanne. Art lovers would understand my utter disappointment and sadness with seeing that it was closed until mid-October, with me being there on the 3rd. So I went to cover my sadness with delicious coffee and cake.
Augustinerkeller. We went here on our last night there, also the day of the German National Holiday and the last evening of Oktoberfest. It was full of tourists and we were lucky our friend decided we should of course, book our places. The food was delicious. Being on holiday, I decided to not try something light, so I just opted for a place with around several types of meat (duck, pork and sausages?). This was accompanied by beer, Sauerkraut and potato. From what I remember, my plate should have been around 13E and the beer around 4E.
