Where to eat in Munich

greeno29 Nov 28, 2011 07:59 PM

Any help would be great!

I will be in Munich from December 7-11. I will be going to the Christmas Markets and looking for great food.

I would like to try some great German food, but I also know they have a lot more cuisines that I am interested in.

Any recommendations would be helpful.

    If you want a more European meal than the typical German restaurant, I'd suggest you try Brenner's, which is a very modern and lovely place in the center of town. They specialize in pasta and grilled dishes, and we had a very good meal there last year. The desserts are heavenly, service is good....but book ahead as it's very popular.

      Thanks for the information.
      I will try to book ahead and get a table.

      I am up for any type of meal in Munich whether local cuisine or European.

        If you click on the Europe Board discussions right below this you will see a lot of other ideas for Munich.

        If you are looking for a specific cuisine, it makes sense to ask.

          I know which german cuisine restaurants I want to go to.

          But am looking for any type of non-german that are very good in Munich.

          Ex. Turkish or Thai.

      Der Pschorr, which is right by the Viktualienmarkt, is an excellent brewery/restaurant serving traditional German food with pints of their excellent beer. We ate there a few times on our last trip through Munich and I do recommend the sauerbrauten which is served with crispy potatoes and a fabulous horseradish sauce. They have a website that you can check out.

      Various stalls in the market itself offer wonderful pork sandwiches and sausages. Can't get more traditional than that.

      Munich is also apparently well known for a highly developed Italian restaurant scene but I can't comment on it.

        Thanks for the information Roland.

        I have been looking on Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor and there are quite a few Italian restaurants.

        I will try to check out Der Pschorr.
