best dumplings in Munich

Where are the best savoury dumplings found in Munich? And where are your favourite places for sweet dumplings? I'm hoping to find a great Mohn-Topfenknoedel when I visit in a few weeks. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

  1. Try the Spaten Haus by the Opera House


    The "bavarian plate" is as scary as it is delicious. The two dumplings that came with it were too much for one person, but damn tasty


    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Simon.

      I found a menu link for Spatenhaus here:
      http://www.kuffler-gastronomie.de/en/... ,

      Looks like a great place.

      1. I'm afraid I don't really know my dumplings one from the other. But.
        I always enjoy the ones that come with most things at the Weisses Brauhaus.
        Here's a menu. If you think the Bavarian Plate at the Spaten Haus is scary,
        scroll down to the section labeled "Die besten Stücke sind die Innereien"


        Just a short walk off of Marienplaz.

        1. " Mohn-Topfenknoedel " are indeed 'sweet' dumplings, Mohn is Poppyseed. Look for dampnudeln, just another type of sweet dumpling.
          All other dumplings mentioned by above posters and in certain places are of the savory type, eaten with meats etc.
          All that Info, and still no place which is best for the sweet stuff, but try Cafe Dallmeyr

            I walked through Dallmeyr yesterday...right after a nice lunch at Spatenhaus. Talk about beautiful presentation. Gives those fancy English and French food halls a run for their money;)

          2. Augustiner Keller is a very good bavarian food that offers many selections to suit what you are looking for, also one of Munich's famous brauhaus. Located at Kaufinger Strasse which the main shopping area between Marienplatz and Karlsplatz. Very good portions for a reasonable price. Just came back from this area, visited my in-laws in Munich for the holidays in 2005. If you get the chance also try Haxenbauer located close to Marienplatz at Tal ...close to Hofbrauhaus and Hard Rock Cafe Munich...definite places to visit... PROST !!
