August in Munich!

I'm a Seoulite Korean, planning a stay in München for a month in August.
I have no idea whatsoever about Germany but I sure am a great chowhound.
Recommendations about gourmets to check out? I would be thankful for a range at around or hopefully below 20 Euro per person.
And perhaps tourist sites that doesn't have to include eating?
There's something I've heard about not eating oysters during months that doesn't have 'r' in its name (Januar, Oktober has 'r's but August doesn't). Is it reliable info?
you touch base at Mezzodi, Steinstraße 57 a tiny Italian and eat and drink in concentric circles around (everything within 10 minutes walking distance):
La Baja, excellent pizza
Negroni, best cocktails in town
Nomiya, the Bavarian Japanese
Rue des Halles, Le Foubourg, l´Ocean, Saint Laurent, french
Rizzi and Moccar, fusion
El Espanol, il Teatro, tapas
and many other fine places – Irish, Italian, Greek and Turk.
you touch base at Hoovers and Floyd, Ickstattstraße 4.
Around the corner is Hans Sachs Straße with an enormous number of fancy places like Ess9, Palast der Winde and 100 m more Jean des St. Malo (seafood)
and finally Schrannenhalle and Viktualienmarkt with different options within themselves.
same starting at La Stanza, St. Anna Platz 2. Around are, just to name a few:
Gandl, Roma, Kulisse, Vue, Brenners, Schuhbecks, international
Les Cuisiniers, Le Barestevino, french,
start at Cest, Adalbertstraße 27.

Walk up and down Türkenstraße and Amalienstraße – this alone can keep you busy for a month.
In the average of all the above you will easily be able to stay under 20 Euros.
And not to forget: in August you have -weatherwise- a good chance to enjoy these omnipresent beergardens.
After all the friends you will make the first evening will help you around to find the right places for the rest of the month.
Not to forget the intersection Elsässer and Breisacher Straße - two minutes from Ostbahnhof - with Lisboa Bar (portugese), Wiesengrund (bavarian), Pierro y Griego (spanish), Escobar (mixed), Juleps (tex-mex), a tiny but decent sushi spot and one of the best pizzerias. Weather permitting all of them offer outside dining.
Wow. What a great list. I think I've only managed to do what you suggest
as Week 4, and even then rarely get past the Schelling Salon.
Isn't August Zwetschgendatschi time? Any thoughts on good places to get
a nice plum cake? It's been too long since I was there in the summer to
recommend anything reliably, but I remember one particular place in Schwabing
on, I think, Türkenstraße. A very small cafe that seemed to be pretty old and
I don't remember it serving anything else besides cofffee.
re: Chuckles the Clone
Yes, it is Datschitime. And you probably mean Cafe Schneller, Amalienstraße 59, just off Schellingstraße.
Good datschis you get at Cafe Münchner Freiheit (CMF) or Backspielhaus which have several outlets all over. The main Cafe of Backspielhaus, Weltenburger Straße 6, is worth to be seen, although difficult to get to by public transport. CMF has one of the most popular outdoor locations.
