Having travelled to many different big cities, Munich stands out as a not-so-stylish one when it comes to dining and drinking. It might sound strange but the majority of Münchner is still quite conservative and it is hard to adapt changes. Therefore, gastronomy field in Munich has got a hard time to bring their new signature into this town. Nonetheless, this place has changed slowly for the last two years. Cafés and restaurants have been growing and bringing a fresh breeze to Munich. Surprisingly, people here are getting used to them and adapting day by day. New born restaurants or cafes will not be coming after each other in within six months but once there is good one in town, it is definitely a divine spot for each of you to be pleased. Here is your ‘eat in Munich‘ guide:
Good food needs to be served in a good service as well as good atmosphere.
Address: Müllerstraße 43
A hidden spot that only the local knows. It is known by its traditional Bazi’s box (or Bratenbox) with the typical flavour of Munich or Bavaria in general. In one traditional Bazi’s box is served with potato dumpling (knödel), red cabbage and crunchy pork belly. Duck is another option as well.
Address: Ledererstraße 3
Located in the middle of the city, Spezlwirtshaft offers a good range of Bavarian dishes. Brauhaus is an experience that people want to have when they are in Munich but to have real good food from this region in a great atmosphere and nicely designed interior, Spezlwirtshaft is a place to be.

TASTE MY BURGER
Address: Augustenstraße 16
Comparing Taste my burger to other burger places in town, this spot might not have a good eye for interior but the quality of each burger is phenomenal. During lunch time, they have a great offer – €6 for burger and fries which I find impossible in Munich. I have lingered my feet here again and again because of the friendly service and their tasty burgers.
Address: Thalkirchner Str. 12
Not a friendly service burger bar but the style and the concept would make up for it. Burgers here are made with organic products and there are great options for you to choose. The menu is creative with complemental sauces – from peanut butter jelly to mango chutney to apricot flavour mustard.
Address: Türkenstraße 55
It is a divine spot in town and vegan food is not just food with vegetables anymore when you are here. Find out more on my review for Gratitude
Address: Oefelestraße 12

Address: Gärtnerpl. 6
A French bakery which offers you delicious brunch. Cortidiano is located in one of the most popular spots in Munich – Gärtnerplatz – which makes it more popular among locals. Price is reasonable and quality is high. Isn’t that what we all look for?
Address: Neureutherstraße 1
LAX is an LA inspired eatery which offers basic but tasty breakfast. The space is relaxing and friendly that you can make it as a working space as well.
Address: Pestalozzistraße 7
Itxaso is definitely one of my greatest find in Munich. The restaurant is small but that makes it cosy. The range of food is simply but what they serve would make you pleased.
Address: Schellingstraße 30
If you want to find a good spot for real good Napoli pizza, Lo Student offers you a great deal for lunch. Everyday has a different offer and it costs about €5.50. It is located in the University area, and it tells by its name, it has become the hottest Italian restaurant in town where you can have good Italian cuisine under a budget.
Address: Residenzstraße 25
The atmosphere at Stereo is quite different from other restaurants you visit in Munich. Classy and modern. Everyday offers a great menu with some delish dishes. Since it is located in the most expensive area in the city, the price is not very affordable (Price range in between €9 – €20). However, you will be happy with what you pay because of its quality.
