Munich: tasty healthy, not necessarily german?

I will be travelling to Munich for business and will be there for at least a week, maybe more. I'm afraid that if I spend the week eating local specialties, my jeans won't fit by the weekend. Do you have recommendations for tasty and healthy food? also some ethnic cuisine... I'll take a brat and a beer the first night, but then I need some options. Thank you!

  1. a small selection, in that order:
    Nomiya - the bavarian Japanese.
    Mezzodi - light italian snacks, Steinstraße 57 (closed Sun and Mon
    )Kulisse - Maximilianstraße 36 (Kammerspiele)
    Tapas Bar, Amalienstraße 79
    El Espanol,Pariser Straße 50
    Pfälzer Weinstube, Residenzstraße 30

    1. thank you marc-- i will be sure to check those out!

      1. a specialty food store with a delicatessan is
        Dienerstr. 14-15 near the marienplatz

        a fun place to go is the Viktualienmarkt at
        Frauenstr. 16- this is the old farmers market near the old city center- there are places to eat there in addition to the vendor stalls

        for game and venison try Halali at Schoenfeldstrasse 22

        for italian try Via Veneto at Maximilianstrasse 40

        for traditional bavarian try zum franziskaner at residenzstrasse 9 near the marienplatz

        1. i have also heard about a restaurant called Schuhbecks at Platzl 6-8 near the Hofbrauhaus. gourmet cuisine with a german accent. I have not eaten there.

          1. i love bodega dali - nice tapas and wine - tengstrasse 6 in schwabing - around the corner from the josephplatz ubahn station.

            also like kalypso at agnesstrasse 8 - in same neighborhood as above. greek, pretty healthy fish and so on.

            also in that neighborhood, healthy and good is cafe ignaz at georgenstrasse 67. right down the block from there is a nice lebanese place called cedar lounge at isabellastrasse. 13. which, when i moved from there a year or so ago was still in business, hopefully still is.

            one of my all time faves in munich is prinz myshkin -fabulously good vegetarian in a beuatiful setting - smack dab in the city center at hackenstrasse 2

            a good resource for restaurants in munich is

            you have got to eat some real bavarian though - rib sticking, fattening, and delicious! and drink some augustiner beer - i could cry thinking of how good it is!
