Inside Englischer Garten
It isn’t all bratwurst and schnitzel at restaurants in Munich, which is the self-proclaimed gourmet capital of Germany. But while many fine restaurants await for the trendy set, visitors of all budgets and taste buds should fare well.
Trying some authentic Bavarian fare is a must, something that’s readily available at every fun beer garden, cool gastropub, and modest German restaurant in town, while those looking for some pricey gluttony will be happy to know the Germans have a word for it: Edelfresswelle!
Regular locals eat lots of Weisswurst, which is basically a veal sausage that’s been boiled to bits and goes surprising well with beer – which, incidentally, Müncheners drink more of than anywhere else in Germany.
So whether you’re looking for top-rated international cuisine or some cold Krautsalat mit Speck (white cabbage with bacon), restaurants in Munich will fill you up…and if they don’t, at least you can get drunk.
