Confessions of a Food Explorer @ Munich

Munich was the last city I visited during my journey. It is an old growing city, with colourful pedestrian malls, beer halls and gardens!

Hofbräuhaus : Well, I guess the name speaks for itself. It is one of Munich's oldest breweries. If you want to experience Bavarian food, oompah music, and one-liter mug of beer, this is the place to go! The hall is very huge, and almost crowded with locals and tourists. There are even several tables for regular guests. I had a "Mushroom pot" - mixed fresh mushrooms in herb cream sauce with two bread dumplings (EUR 7.90). The dumplings were rich. I found that the sauce lacked flavour. In short, excellent service and average food. Even if you don't eat here, it's worth a visit owing to its atmosphere! My Food Score : 3 stars

The second floor of Hofbräuhaus

Prinz Myshkin - This is an upscale vegetarian restaurant, which consists of simple and modern decor, nicely arranged tables, and arched ceilings. It has a tree in the middle and the ambiance is very soothing. The list of food is quite international, like pasta, sushi, French and Indian dishes. I ordered a "Tagliatelle Amanda"(EUR 11.50) - pasta served with a light tomato cream sauce with oyster mushrooms, hazelnuts, red wine and fresh tarragon. It was scrumptious! This was the best vegetarian food I have had in a long time! A friend of mine had the Triangoli (noodle pockets, stuffed with porcini mushrooms and ricotta, sage butter and freshly grated Parmesan). It also tasted great! Great atmosphere; excellent food, but a bit pricey; the service was slow. Vegetarians would definitely love this place ;) My Food Score : 4 1/4 stars

Alois Dallmayr München - This is a luxury food store in Munich. It offers coffee and tea, truffles and chocolate, home-made salads, pastas and many other fine foods. There is a restaurant on the upper floor, an indoor market is on the ground floor.

Mini snacks from Dallmayr's market - a slice of cheese cake (EUR 2.80) and pasta salad with ricotta (EUR 2.96, 0.14g). The cheese cake was good, but certainly not the best. The salad was SO DELICIOUS - loved it, a lot!!!
My Food Score : Cheese Cake 3 1/2 stars ; Salad 4 1/2 stars
