Munich Dining

Dining in Munich can be quite an experience, and best of all, an inexpensive one. The city is home to fabulous restaurants, bistros, pubs and bars; most of them have lunch menus, offering the same as the dinner menus, but usually at half price. Beer gardens are traditional places where locals and travelers enjoy fabulous Bavarian cuisine with incredibly tasting beers. Many of the most popular restaurants are housed in historic mansions or estates, making the meal educational and yet even more enjoyable.

Beer Gardens- Great Eats
Of all the beer gardens, you should not miss Hofbraunhaus, the most famous beer hall worldwide. In existence since 1644, it is a place for traditional specialties like crackling pork roast of Bavarian Pig, with bread dumplings and home made bacon-cabbage salad, and for dessert, their home made apple strudel with vanilla sauce. And of course, their famous and first “brown” beer ever created.

Tip: Do not discard Munich as a place to visit if you’re not a meat eater. Most restaurants offer a great vegetarian menu that’s tasteful and affordable.

Dining in Munich is not just special because of the great cuisine, but because you have the opportunity to dine in incredible settings. Hofer-Der-Stadtwirt, offering Bavarian and Austrian food, is a mansion built in 1551. You can learn about its history without leaving the premises by touring the basement with its 450 year old gothic style vaults. Among its specialties is roast from young pork, boiled beef filet, apricot dumplings and curd strudel. The prices are very reasonable.

Another place to dine and marvel in its surroundings is Vinorant, which used to be the first residence of the Bavarian Royal family. Its outdoor setting is a great place to relax and enjoy the day. It is said to be a gastronomic jewel, the best for dining in Munich.

Dining in Munich is also about romance. The Estate Menterschwaige, on the banks of the River Isar, serves excellent cuisine in a cozy atmosphere, or a beautiful courtyard setting. Here you can enjoy a delightful stein of beer while sitting under a chestnut tree. It is no wonder that it has been named the “most beautiful beer garden” of Munich. Its sophisticated menu includes favorites like dandelion salad with filet of beef on potato leaves and truffle puree. Its home made apple strudel is the most requested dessert.

Dining in Munich is full of surprises. Apart from great traditional restaurants you will find trendy and unique places like Nektar, a restaurant built inside a tunnel vault, decorated all in white with fluorescent lights; patrons dine on comfortable divan beds with small tables. The food is unusual and creative; you’ll find items on the menu such as ginger and scallops. It’s a place to delight all your senses; it has a great environment, and great service. Its bar, in retro 60’s style, is among the most expensively decorated in the city, and on weekends it turns into a nightclub.
